I'm still waiting for a pic.

 

Yes, a two wheeler makes you walk. That's what legs are for.

Now I see why DB upped the engine power over time. The little 1.6hp B&S had trouble going through packed clay. The kid was helping to push the db. We tried a tiller first, but it was near useless scratching at the ground.

I get the photos now. Does that thing have a moldboard plow or cultivator blades?

The first picture looks like he just went  through round 1 with George Foreman.

Moldboard. I upped the rpms on the engine a couple hundred and it works much better breaking ground.

The plow is off my Big 5 db, so it may be too big for the 5751.

I think you just convinced him that old guys are tougher than they look.

Tougher? Heck yes! Old time farmers wore long sleeve shirts with collars year round. No air conditioning either.

They sure did. I spent one summer bucking hay and couldn't figure out why they had long sleeve shirts on. Then at the end of first week I figured it out too.
