Picked this up yesterday to get the engine for another project, but the more I look at it, the more I'm thinking about cleaning it up, making it run and offering it to someone else. I intended to use the engine on a pull behind tiller for my Suburban and part the rest. image.jpg image.jpg

I picked up one of those last winter that needs a engine rebuild or a new one.  I would like some opinion on how good these work.

Those are mean tillers.  If you like a front tine, you won't capture a tougher rig.  I bought one at an auction.  I thought I was ripped off when it crested $20 and I held on to it, but then once I brought it home and saw it dig, I was impressed.

you have a fairly uncommon one, as it has a briggs engine. Most including mine used a 6hp tech engine. Mine is an animal, you pull the clutch and better be ready to go.

It has a two speed with reverse gear box on it. It's tempting to pull the handlebars off and just convert it to a three point for my Suburban. Instead of putting the engine on the three point that I have. Turn it backwards and have two reverse speeds. Make an arm for the clutch. Why not?

That's why I bought it--for the 8 hp engine.

I had one of the 6 hp tech also. They are a beast of a tiller. My uncle wore it out then gave it to me. I think I put a gear or something in the drive area & wore it out again.
