Here are some photos of my merry tillers working and set out when I bought them If you take your time with them you can do a lot

with them

What amazes me is the fact they all work on a 1/2 inch belt and gearing

We had 2 Merry Tillers when I was growing up. They were great tillers but I had no idea that there may have been attachments to do other jobs with them.

The dually is quite the workhorse :thumbs: is that a Briggs OHV 6.5 hp repower i see on it ?

 

Yeh, the walk behinds has always impressed people, small, simple and well built, Merry Tiller is no exception, i chose Ariens over Merry Tiller due to the cost and availability of parts in the USA.

 

To this day i still use and work some of my walk behind tractors that use a 1/2 inch drive belt, the diesel repowered Ariens was my main mower in Williamsburg for a number of years :thumbs:, My David Bradley tractors get used once in a while.

 

Below is a picture i pulled from the net of my Sears Roto Spader only mines is white and orange, has high/low and reverse gearbox. Same as with Merry Tiller, wheels and attachments can be added.

 

Thanks for the pictures, not sure what is playing or working, i figure ''using'' could be applied to all :D

In the second picture, what is that attachment on the middle one. I keep looking at it and have no idea what it could be for.

If the photo you are talking about is the one with the three merry tillers it is the base for the merry tiller truck

Thanks for your comments
