No rocks at all, so that isn't a problem. :thumbs:

 

I have been thinking about turning my walk behind into a pull type but I would have to add tines to make it wider. I hate that thing, the front tine types just beat you to death. :mad2:

Yes they do, i am thinking about doing that to my Sears Roto Spader and looking for another set of tines to add. What kind is yours ?

Mine is a Earthquake something or other. Kind of light duty but the motor runs good. I have an old Montgumery Wards that my son-in-law is trying to repower, it might be more up to the task than the earthquake if he can get it running.

You start adding tines for width to an old walk behind tiller with worm drive bronze gear and you will need one heck of a stack of extra gearboxes on hand.  BTDT  :wallbanging:

Thank you for that, forgot,

My Sears came both ways, walk behind and 3 point, it is the one with gear tranny, high, low and reverse, the ones for the Sears ss10/ss12 garden tractors had the gear stick removed and covered leaving the tranny in one speed, a wider dust shield, tine extentions i think to 36 inches, might be wrong, and the ground stake and handle bars removed. The 3 point bracket bolted between the engine dust shield and gear/chain case.

As for the Montgumery Wards i am not so sure, As for Ariens front tine tillers it will work, have seen a few converted, extended and used every spring/fall.

Well, it depends on the model of the Wards, they did build bigger heavy duty ones with steel gears, the Wards was outdated many years ago so if something breaks finding parts would be slim and used parts hard to find, a pictur of the Wards or model number would help. looked at earthquake front tine tillers, not built strong enough to be modified/extended without damage to the gearbox, i would not try.

Somewhere on the net, I ran across a guy who took two of the earthquake's and bolted the housings together.

He ran both motors and had it hooked on an Ariens as I recall.  Did not look cheap or would be cheap to use but it really threw the dirt.

If I could find another earthquake dirt cheap I would for sure do that.

The bad thing about those setups is you are running extra engines to do one job.
