Because that's what they wanted in there! Engineers are not fabricators nor fixers, they just deal with what they have been taught! Make it like you want, probably work better!

Got board today, so I finished assembling the tiller minus the tines of coarse, because I'm still waiting for the bearings, but its all sealed up and full of goop, and runs as quiet as a church mouse.

Don't think it will churn much ground that way, Keith! Glad it is working!

Happy to hear it is all back together and working!

Don't think it will churn much ground that way, Keith! Glad it is working!


He would get some more seat time that way though!

Oh you are SOOO RIGHT! Half throttle is plenty fast too! It makes the 12 HP work a bit, but nothing to hard. I'm happy now, finally a factory tiller and its almost like new now too ;) at least wise on the important stuff. :)

Well he's all fixed and actually loomed it and secured the battery real solid. I think the cause was an aux. Plug connector shorted on a corner of the battery box frame, very rare that it happened but it did. All better now and back in the corn patch tilling.:)
