Kenny the DragonFly is a GTV18. This one will not be messed with much till the DragonFly is back in one piece. I need it to figure out where all the Bolts Heath dumped out go.

Thanks! I wonder if the engine is the only difference. The one you just bought has the same handle for the varidrive as the GTV/16 I got a while back. My other on (Big Bertha) has a different handle.

Nice tractor and tiller Willie. I think you will like the tiller.
Interesting handle on the lift.
When you get a chance, could you take a pic of the tines on that one?

Pics at end because my tablet is being a jerk.

Full day.


At 545am there was a horrible noise. I went to investigate and Jareds alarm was going off for some reason. I nearly strangled him.

I tried to go back to sleep and only managed to doze off a bit.


We got up at some time later and

coffe pic below

Then we goofed and watched tv till Heath went down for a nap. Jared and I left to go get some seafoam and gas.


After dosing the Ss12 and hooking it to a battery it would turn over but not fire. I told Jared to get the brake cleaner out of the Ox. While he was looking he managed to spray carb cleaner in his eyes, I led him in and we washed th3m out. He is fine.

While he sat inside I went out and got the tractor started. It ran fine.

I got started on the tiller and couldn't get it to run. The breather would not come off either. A little investigating and I found that the sediment bowl on the gas tank is plugged up. The bolts are frozen so I hosed it with PB Blaster.

I finally got the breather off. I will have to run a die over the stud.

I pulled the spark plug and spraued some PB in the cylinder. After it sat a while I poured in some Seafoam, and let it sit some more.

When I pulled the rope with the plug out it sprayed nastiness everywhere. Once the plug was back in it fired up and ran for a few seconds till the cyl cleared out.

Tomorrow I will pull the bowl off and try to clean it out.

Anyone have a manual on it.

Also attached a pic of the tines.

Jared finally came back out and drove the tractor about 10 feet before it ran out of gas.

Then the big dogs were turned loose and Gunner chased them around the yard. When they went back in the pen Gunner was covered in slobber.

Now we are watching Whose Line is it Anyway.

Jared goes home at 9.

This is for a model 917.251880, but probably as close as you'll get for that tiller.

After a good night's sleep. I got up and did nothing for a while. Steph decided to take a nap while Heath and I goofed off.

When he went down for a nap Steph and I went outside to see about getting the tiller running.


After pulling off the sediment bowl and cleaning up the shut off valve. It started right up. Steph declared that it was her Christmas present.

Then I went over and tilled up her garden and made it bigger. She was so happy she was dancing all around while I worked.

The tiller stalled out a couple of times but she was johnny on the spot restarting it . Both the tractor and the tiller will need a carburetor rebuild but since I only paid $200 for both I cannot complain.


Bouncing around took its toll on my back. I I am flopped on the couchIMG_20141214_161005_488.jpg IMG_20141215_172241_087.jpg

That's the same style of tine that mine has, still haven't found a manual for it. The closest parts view doesn't show those tines.

I have about 6 broken tines. Will try to make a few to weld on.

Aren't those fantastic tillers? They will really toss the rocks.
