Just got off off phone with the gentleman that has this for sale,will be picking it up a week from Friday ,as he will not be at home this weekend,and is not a short drive for me.here is part off the e mail he sent to me

Don,
Thank you for your interest in the tiller. I will get an enlargement of the picture and mail it to you as soon as I receive your mailing address. It has been stored in a heated and air conditioned shop for several years and has not been run recently. It is a older restoration and ran well in the past. It also has available a new set of tines and the original owner's manual.he also said it has nos wooden handles on it .this gentleman is 84 years old and said he has collected old farm equipment and motors ,and decided it was time for someone else to enjoy them.he also told me not to worry because it was not going anywhere until i got there.will post a small pic that was in his add if it does not give too much away about location and price

I took care of the picture for you. It's really small, but it looks like a great piece! I hope you take some really big ones when you get it home!!

WOW! That thing looks like a real beast of a machine! Is that the air cleaner sticking out of the shroud above and to the right of the blower housing?
