I'm not denying the "Merry" identity - we all know several brand names could be on one product via outsourcing.

 

The book I have shows that tiller with the brand name as  "Seidelhuber".  

 

Seidelhuber Iron & Bronze Works - Seatle, WA

This 1949 "4-in-1"  unit was powered by a Briggs & Stratton model "N",  2 horsepower engine.

It had 2 forward speeds and weighed 145 pounds. 

 

Merry could have made it for Seidelhuber or vice-versa.     ????

Neat tiller,  I never seen one in person!  :thumbs:

I'd agree with Kris on the Seidelhuber name and everyone else on the Merry name, too: they were related.  Try this reading material on a lawsuit by Merry, if you can put up with the lawyer speak:
