Good for you. The tiller looks great.

:dancingbanana: I FINALLY get to go pick this up tomorrow (Saturday). I look forward to meeting this man. He has built his own log home and also restores vintage motorcycles, among other things. Here's a website of his that you might also find interesting:

Well, it was a long, HOT day, but I did manage to get the 123 home today! It is in decent shape, but it needs a good cleaning, a new seat, and eventually a new front right tire (has a bulge in the tread). I tried the tiller in the garden and it works good! The main drive belt appears to be OK, but I need to adjust the tension on the skinny drive belt from the gearbox.
Daniel, I think the mower deck HAS been repaired on the right side. I haven't had a chance to really look at it closely.

All in all, I think I made a good purchase. For now, it will be stored in my utility trailer. I don't think I can cram it in the shed until I sell something else (already trying to sell a Craftsman tiller ). This makes 4 garden tractors, but I really HATE to part with ANY of them. We'll see.....

I'll add some pictures soon.

Had a chance to play with my new (to me) 123. This evening, I learned how to remove the tiller, greased and attached the mower deck, and mowed my front yard with it. It worked well, although I need to adjust the steering and see what I can do with the lift lever; the button on the handle will not spring back out on its own. Other than that, it ran well and mowed well. I'll sharpen the blades when I have another chance to play with it.

Here are some pictures I took before putting it away for the evening:
