Got any pics of the tiller? We might be able to help figure something out if we can see what you have!

Do you have the rest of the tiller? Or are you using the motor plate for a different project, or is this an extra motor plate?

If its an extra plate, I would fab a sleeve hitch on the front of it.
If you have the rest of the tiller WITH the rear wheels, you could just make a (pivoting yoke) that lifted the front and left the dolly wheels on the ground (this is how the new ones lift BTW)

If you're needing the plate for another project, then???

I have two of these motor plates along with the tiller. I just posted a picture of the motor plate because that's what I want to lift with the sleeve hitch. The hard part about leaving the tiller wheels on the ground is that it makes it hard to turn. Whenever I leave the wheels engaged I am afraid i will bend OR break a wheel whenever I go into a turn. I've thought about trading the tiller for a walk behind then I wouldn't have to worry about it but then again I'd hate to get rid of my tiller.
