On CL for $200, about $40 in gas to go get at my companies expense :), will start and run for a bit but needs some carb and tank attention. Has the Guide headlights on it. Needs a dash tower but I just happened to have a spare sitting in the "not really scrap-pile " (this term confuses and distracts the wife). Now the bad news: I am not sure how much I will keep and how much will go to brother Mark, for sure the tiller and drive were mainly for him, mine works great. But as I have one of the same model tractors in dis-assembly in the shed I may keep the tractor and just let him keep the Simplicity I gave him this spring.

She looks good and straight. I like the look of those, and some day hope to snag one.

Thanks guys, I saw the listing on CL on its second day and thought for sure it would be gone when I left a message. He called back within an hour and said he had someone offer him $150 but was still for sale. I told him I would take it as is for the $200 asking price but would be a few days to get it and would call him the next AM to set a time. Kept thinking hes gonna sell it before I call back but he said its mine come and get it. As I now own my own company I just borrowed a trailer and took the work van. I will probably sell Mark the tiller and tiller drive and keep the tractor and deck. I have a B112 in parts in the shed as well as a parts B112 in my goodie pile.

Great deal on a runner. Aren't those tillers amazing in what they'll churn?

How are the tine holders on the tiller? Are the holes egged out?

BTW, nice of you to make sure his tractor and tiller will be color-matched.

OHH I didnt think about that angle, I will hit him with that as a reason for me to keep the tractor. He is supposed to be over Sunday and we are going to take the tiller drive and associated parts off, while taking many pictures. Then see about getting the motor running right. We may end up pulling that to put in the Simplicity for now as that needs to be ringed.
The tines are partly worn but everything is real tight.
I love my tiller they do a great job of turning up the soil.

Congrats Greg! Looks like you came out on the good end of that deal by a long shot!

Hope you've got a good steering wheel to put on it from your goodie pile.

Nice score! I went to tractor data and checked this out. Pretty cool on the transmission, nice long wheel base. Have fun with it! And good luck on the self employed endeavor!
