Looks like it's powered by a line trimmer motor. Can't say I've seen one of those before.

Judging by the fuel tank, I'll guess Tecumseh two stroke.

It was a Troy Bilt tiller.The man who built it was running it around and it was pretty zippy.

That's the same 2hp 2 stroke that's on my little Craftsman Cultivator.Bad thing is the Case up by the engine on those tend to twist off.Had my uncle weld mine back up after I caught a rock and lammed up the tines.

Overall it has good power and usually starts within the 10th or so pull. :rolling:

 

Think I would of built some sort of support for the shaft though.They are a bit weak for the amount of Torque those little 2 stroke engines make.

 

They do have a small wurm drive,I wouldn't imagine it would be able to be pushed around without hurting it.

 

That would work really good for a youngster to ride around on.

Doug, that little rascal was at the Greenville show, right close to the VGTCOA tent.

 

Like Username said, that little rascal is pretty quick!

It's just a itty bitty thing, and the owner is tall and lanky.  When he's sitting on it, his knees are almost up around his chin :rolling:

 

He's the guy that had the Bolens front wheel weight that I missed out on buying because he left late on Sat.

 

He was at the Plain City show too, and I did get the wheel weights there :D :D :D

Wondered what show I missed. That wouldn't have been too far from home for him. They had other tractors there besides P-Kings?
