I've never heard of this but from tthe one pic it reminds me of the newer Roto-Hoe models. Wonder if they are related?

From what I have found so far it sounds like it was made by MTD.  On their site it is listed as being made for many different companies.  I can come close to that number but cannot find that exact model number.  The model name is listed on the MTD site.  I was on chat with MTD and he could not find anything but gave me the tech number which I plan to call on Monday or Tuesday.

I emailed my contact at MTD and turns out he built the prototype of that tiller.  It is identical to model #218-406-000, which I did find on their parts pages.

The Mark Master was first made in 1978 and was sold at different stores including JC Penny.

the researching part is half the fun of collecting, at least to me it is.

Yes, I agree.  It is great to have good resources and know people in the right places.  This is not even my tiller.  I did it for a former co-worker's brother-in-law.  

 

I think the most fun I had was researching information for the Eisenhower Rototiller article I wrote for Lawn and Garden Collector magazine.
