Headed out tomorrow morning for Glen Rock, NJ to pick up several attachments for the Model 2 & 3 Rototillers and possibly for the one-wheeled Home Gardener.  All thanks to a great collector friend being at the right place at the right time.  An added plus, meeting my good friend from Troy, NY, who was with Troy-Bilt for some time.  His father also worked for Rototiller, Inc.  I will post photos here in the days to come of all the treasures.

It was a GREAT DAY.  I got lots of good stuff.   A little snowy coming home, but no problems.  The load on back of the truck helped greatly.  Below is a list of some of the items I got.

 

snow blade for the Model 2 or 3 new old stock

reel mower for the Model 2 or 3 new old stock

Buck saw attachment for the one-wheeled Home Gardener still packed as received from the factory.

Cone mower for the one-wheeler

Generator and cord reel for the Model 2 or 3  looks new old stock

dual planter setup for the B1-6 Rototiller new old stock

front mount cycle bar that I don't know what it fits.  Will post a photo for identification.

Lots of parts and literature

Needless to say, a very good day.  "Chewing the fat" with fellow Rototiller collectors including 2 old time employees of Troy-Bilt with ties to Rototiller, Inc.

I will post photos as I unload.  Got home and pulled the load right into the garage.

Forgot all about the circular saw attachment for the Model E Rototiller.   My buddy also got the floor sander attachment, which he donated to the Burden Iron Works Museum in Troy, NY.  Got some Rototiller decals for 1958 and later Rototiller tillers.

I could be wrong, but I thought they were made by Planet Jr.  I plan on taking photos as I unload tomorrow.

 

Until then here are some photos of the NOS, 1947 Roto-ette Home Gardener.

Great Haul! :thumbs:  I've never seen anything like that before. Just curious, how does that “cone mower” work?

On the side view, you will notice a square plate with 4 holes.  The tiller housing comes off the that bolts in its place and the planters slide on the rods.
