When I got my Super Chief 1450 & Tiller a while back, the tiller mount and belt tensioner were AWOL. Been looking for those parts for some time. Member Tomwendt said he had a tiller, but he lives in NY. I looked elsewhere for the parts needed for a while. Finally I contacted him to see if the tiller was still available. It was and he put it on a pallet and shipped via Fastenal. 10 days and $150 later, I now have 2 of these tillers, with one being complete. Now I can make the missing parts for the other one. I see a few things needing attention on it, but no big deal. Should be easy to fix.
Here's the tiller I just got. The paint is even in decent shape on it.
Here the one I got with the Jake.
The one I just got from Tom is an earlier unit, yet looks much better. Must of led a sheltered life. Tines on both look about the same, very little wear.
Now I just have to get a lift on the tractor. The tiller and pallet weighed in at 200 lbs. Not a lightweight tiller!
