Here are pics of my 16 horse briggs thumper, gear drive, variable speed, hydaulic lift equipped Gilson made tractor I picked up in 1994 as a back up for my Cub Cadet in case it would break down pushing snow. It was never needed and has less than an hour of run time since purchase. I have picked up a second Cub Cadet so I gave away the plow. I also have 2 40 inch tillers for it.2012-04-09_15-19-13_550copy.jpg 2012-04-09_15-19-26_275copy.jpg 2012-04-09_15-19-53_371copy.jpg 2012-04-09_15-21-04_831copy.jpg 2012-04-09_16-05-34_403copy.jpg 2012-04-09_16-06-26_495copy.jpg 2012-04-09_16-06-43_146copy.jpg 2012-04-09_16-07-07_10copy.jpg IMG_20141108_145504279_HDR (1)copy.jpg

I love the old Gilsons, and you don't see many with the hydraulic lift.  That lift makes life so much easier.  Variable speed is another nice feature.

Nice rototiller. I believe I have the same one. I have a bad seal on the gearbox. Any ideas on where I can get one

I have a manual for it. I will dig it out and see if I can find a number for the seal.
