I thought it might be economy when I brought it home a wile back but have found a newer version (what's left of it anyway) for parts that says porter-cable on it and is about 100lbs lighter and looks to be single purpose as a tiller, the GT in question (if that's what it is) has a very heavy post or tool bar on the front for implement(s)(plow,sodbreaker ?)and is set in some impressive cast iron, model 8 Briggs ser.no.says it's a 1954,wheels are 7in. 5 spoke two piece cast iron, motor rocks from right to left for belt tension and gang pullies that go from snail to rabbit, the pics can be seen on karrbear2008 (my girl friend set up the account wile looking for info.on the hoe-trac, karrbear doesn't fit me and I'm playing it safe with the pic's for now so Doug t can do better things) the handle bars swing out (to minimise soil compaction I think)this thing weighs more than any walk behind I have or have ran,this site is great and I'm sure I'll know what I have soon enough

Now you're trying to confuse me. Let me warn you, there's no sport in it, its too easy!  If you're talking about what I think I see in the other pictures, I'm thinking rototiller. Check out this website and see if you can find it there.

This site has me digging deep for that stuff I just couldn't put my finger on, if it digs dirt I'll dig it the older the better, I'll try to control myself from now on(to much iron in blood) and thanks again, now if I don't hide or delete anything it's off to that link you gave me

WOW!!that is some nice rototillers,and them attachments are as cool as it gets,sickle bar, water pump really, I'm blown away and can't believe I own one, and left wondering why it's not considered a walk behind tractor if you could (thirereticly)follow it with a rake and bailer,I apparently have some learning to do,this site seems to be full of wizards and guru's that can summon great knowledge with the swing of a finger so learning I am,thank you for this great information

You should see a THANKS button in the lower right of a post. Clicking that will thank the person that made the post.

 

If you follow the link that Earthgrinder  sent, Porter Cable actually bought out Rototiller. I didn't realize that myself so I learned something too. He should know, it's his website.

Here is a section of the forum that explains how things work. It should help with the learning curve.  http://gardentractor...ggestions-news/  There is more kidding about warning points than are actually handed out. If we see actions that would lead to warning points we usually send a private message to discuss it before the points are given. There is probably info on the point system at the link above.
