I bought this rototiller on eBay that looked in mint condition, I didn't really need one but both of mine needed a bit of attention in both the cosmetic and mechanical aspect so I figured I'll get this one and sell my other two.

Anyhow the person selling this rototiller happened to be the same person I met a while back to pick up his 1000 seat to be refurbished by chev29,, my new friend blackjackjake ... Lol

I looked up the price of rental cars on Hotwire and got a full size car for 6.98/day with unlimited miles, the misses needed to get Christmas shopping done so we drove to Buffalo Friday after work, the next day she shopped all day and I drove 6 hour round trip to Rick's and picked up my rototiller and a few other parts I got from him. The rototiller was a tight fit in the Hyundai Sonata trunk but we managed.

On Sunday we made a small detour on our way back to Montreal by going though finger lakes to pick up some front wheel weights which I have been wanting for a while. They were 70$ so I could not resist.

It's amazing what you can get away with when you bribe with shopping and nice restaurants....

Here are some pics of the rototiller, it is in really good shape! Pretty much like new. I just have a small oil leaks out the shaft but I already got the seal for that from bolens1000.
