Craftsman cultivator attachment problem

I have a Sears Craftsman cultivator attachment (the kind that attaches to a string trimmer). Yesterday it would not turn. After checking to make sure nothing was jamming it, I opened up the gear box to find that several contiguous teeth of one of the gears have worn away. This unit is only 3 years old and has less than 15 hours light use. The parts list shows only the gearbox as a whole part, which is of course $55, while an entire new cultivator attachment can be had for $80. Is there any way to get just the worn gear? I'm a bit mad -- this should not have happened.

I doubt you'll find a gear unless you luck up on a used part at a small engine shop. I understand your frustration. Few things are made to last anymore. I get disgusted about that a lot.
