I unloaded my truck today and cleaned the machines.  I was very happy to find that the three engines are not stuck.  The rotary mower deck is mounted on the frame of a Model 2 to show its mounting. That particular deck was used very little.  It is identical to the new one in the box.  The little plow in front of the Mow-Till rotary mower is a hiller attachment for the model T, 2 or 3.

Well, sort of.  That is for sticking things like corn stalks it to grind them up.  There is a plate on the deck top that is removed and the box is installed.

I am greatly indebted to the family of the businesses founder and his son.  They realize these items are greatly sought after collector items, but they did not want to see the stuff scraped.  I think they also know that I will take good care of the equipment and spread the story of Rototiller.

Im glad it is in your hands.

 

Could you drop me a little history on the tillers.

 

My DB Roto Spader is restored.

have not found this yet but a self propelled rear wheel was offered with a aluminum 18 inch cut front mounted rotary mower or 20 inch cut reel mower.

Thanks for sharing those pictures.  It all looks great.  Are you going to fire up the engines or leave them as they are?
