I have the chance to get a rotary drive and tractor from a fellow member here and I'm wondering if the unit would fit on a 12A Power Hoe? Its on a 12BA-02 Power Hoe right now, but the engine is missing and have looked some to locate one (nothing yet).
Being I have afew 12A's I'd like to put it on one of them. The unit has the snap-hitch on it like the sickle attachment for the older Power Hoes, thats why I'm thinking it will work. Doesn't say in the manual what Power Hoes it'll fit just has a pic of a newer one.

I'd post a link to the unit in the manual section, but can't figure out how to get it to work.

I can't give you a definite answer, as I don't know for a fact.

Looking at pics in my manuals, it appears the "snap-hitch" for the 12A sickle bar is slightly different than the "snap-hitch" attachments used on the 12BA and 12BB PowerHo's.

That being said, the rotary drive unit may fit on your 12A.

I cant give a definite answer if they will interchange, but if the price is right I'd grab it!
You dont see too many of the Saw blade/ Weed cutter attachments.
