Got the belt back on the tiller & decided to hit the worst of the garden. This is the rows of Sweet Corn. (We haven't weeded in about 3 weeks thru here (time and gumption).

We cut the corn stalks down and I'm just tilling them in. The tines are only set about 3" deep here as I wanted to mangle everything tonight and do a deep pass in a few days. I figure it'll take me that long to get the dirt out of my hair. :)

Man that tiller spins fast, last time when I used the tiller on my Massey it doesn't kick up the dirt at all like yours does, my tines probably spin 1/4 the RPMs yours does.
Neat Video :thumbs:

Good job tilling, and when you throttle it up, that tiller really slings the dirt!

The dirt doth fly! Thanks for sharing. I've wanted one of those for a while, but they don't come up that often in my area.

But, did I hear surging when it was without a loaded?

Yeah, the carb is pretty bad. I'm thinking it's time for a new one for it. the rebuild & clean worked great for a while, but it clogged up again I think.

Ditto.


Geeze Alan, that thing really flings the dirt. As DH1 said, the MF tiller is really slow compared to that.

Alan, that is a nice unit. I'm mulling one over on Craigs. Not sure I "need" it yet.
