Keen eye you have there :thumbs:   Wonder what the purpose was behind that ? Too cheap to replace with the correct ones or maybe a way to open up the lawn for over seeding ?

That's dangerous.  Mower sections are so brittle.

Vertical slicer, have no idea why the seller did that to a rear mount GT tiller, would make more sense to do it to a front tine tiller for a poor man's vertical slicer, that is until the sickle knives start snapping off.

Golf course use vertical slicer, it cuts the grass roots individualizing each grass clump letting in air, water and fertilizer.

It may have been a $150 tiller, but now it's worth about $50 in parts. And $500??? Bad enough he is selling that ER trip maker, but to gouge someone for it... I thought that was the job of the sickle bar pieces when they came off...

That looks like an attempt to copy a Simplicity attachment that I have for my 3012. It looks like a rear mounted tiller but has little verticle blades to slice into the grass and dirt. I think that it is called a conditioner. Good Luck, Rick 

 

 

It is called a revitalizer, here is a link  http://www.simpletra...revitalizer.htm

Revitalizer...they do a bang-up job, too!  Just shipped one to CT last week.
