I plan to mont this on the back of my CC129.

 

 

 

I'm trying to upload more pictures but it says upload failed.

 

Ok I think I have figured out the problem with the uploads.

 

If I try to use the bulk uploader it will fail, if I upload at least one using the basic uploader and then switch to the bulk uploader it works.

Yes, even upside down, it looks like it's in great shape.  Congratulations.

The knives need to be changed and 2 of them are missing. I think I can buy knives for it. I have seen something similar at the TSC. I think it will fit the back of the cub nicely.

For right now I plan to mount a 5 HP Briggs on it, it's an extra motor. I have another 5 HP Briggs that needs a carb, I may rob the carb and tank from this motor, and use it on the other motor.

I'll stop by Atwoods tonight on the way home and check on some knives and a idler for it.

I have one similar but a rock was dropped in it and bent the main shaft. I will straightened the shaft now that I have a press. The teeth on some of these are reversible. Just unbolt and turn over, then rebolt. Good Luck, Rick

I see the pictures! But, let me understand, roto hoe is a roto tiller manufacturer. But, that's a chipper shedder? But, it's not a hammer mill. it's got cutter blades in it? Is it for leaves and small things or does it do branches too?

It should do branches the shoot on the side is for branches.

I was finally able to reap load the pictures, the first time around they were upside down.

I think I can make new blades fom mower blades, I found some that will work.

After doing a lot of looking, it appears that there are several different model. I have seen posts of model 500, 500H, 800, and 800H.

I think the number is the HP, I.e. 500=5 HP and 800=8 HP. And the H means Hammer Mill, the one I have is not a hammer mill, it uses knives to cut with. Also the straight blades go on the side where the limbs go in there is a plate bolted to the side on the hopper to help chop off the limbs as you feed them in.

It doesn't look to hard to convert this to a hammer mill, I would need some steel plates, and some blades from a rotary mower.
