Just finished restoring this early s/n Graham-Paige/Frazer B1-6 Rototiller.  I received it completely in pieces because the fellow did not want to scrap it.  He brought it to my house on his way to VA for vacation from NY.  It is s/n 3035 manufactured 6/24/1946.  It is headed to the Kaiser-Frazer convention outside of Gettysburg on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

Looks very nice!
Is the shroud for over the tines missing or did that model not come with one? Just wondering.

The tiller hood was in real bad shape.  I need to find a nice one or make one.  When I was still working I made one out of aluminum for my first B1-6.  I will look for awhile before I decide to fab one.  Even with the tiller hood you don't want to walk directly behind one of these machines.  I learned the hard way - a rock to the shin - ouch!

Very nice looking tiller. Where did you get the flexible hose that goes to the air filter?

Those Frazers have such a nice looking engine. It looks like it should be on a German motorcycle.
