A guy has a tiller for sale and I have been given first dibs on it. He sent some photos of it but not of the top so it's difficult to ascertain whether it's a round or flat top tiller. Apparently it's black in colour.I suspect it's a flat top. Here are some photos. What do you guys think it is? The seller is elderly and cannot remember what type it is and he's in poor health to shift it for more photos.

Looks to me like the flat top tiller.  Has two set of tines on both side and appear to fill the width of the top.  round tops have 3 sets on one side and 2 on the other.  My bet would be it is a flat top.

Ok thanks for your input on this.

I understand it's heavier than the round top one? How heavier ?

The tiller for my Bolens HT23 was identical to the tiller for my Dayton 3Z68B (MTD995) except the MTD uses a 3 point attachment while Bolens has the proprietary hitch system.
