How about that. A ring-a-ding dirt slinger. 

Thanks for the video link. Neat sounding old tiller.  :thumbs:

Beautiful tiller, Chuck !   :thumbs:

 

But, why did you make some old guy start it?  :poke:  :smilewink:

 

It is interesting to see how the rpm changes made the different parts vibrate at different speeds.

 

Thanks for posting the video.

Yes, you do not notice the parts moving as much until watching the video.  What is really noticeable is with it at a slow idle and  resting on that front shoe the whole tiller bounces up and down.  That shoe by the way is part of the setup for the rear sicklebar mower.  Because I added a reverse gearbox it is slightly front heavy.  With the 26" wide tilling setup it would probably be balanced.
