Ok I am a little slow posting this.... First off I like to thank member WrenchinOnIt for taking the time to pick this tiller up, making a great crate for it, and dropping it off at fastenal.  I could of not got this with out his help.   He is a great guy to deal with!

 

So here is the tiller still strapped into its crate their is some parts missing but its still a great find.  

I plan to fix the crate up a little and leave it just the way it is.

Jerome, SUPER KOOL FIND! Has to be one of those old stock items that got buried at a dealer. Bill said it was an auction buy and the guy brought it to him to sell it. Rick Show and I know where there is a NOS TF round back tiller still in the box at an old dealer , I'm thinking your find has inspired me to try to make a deal on it. Congrats, nice addition to your collection.

Is that the one that I found a couple months ago?If not then there's another one floating around.I think the one that I found was in New York but I can't remember.

 

Brian did I send you the link?

 

 

Glad someone saved this one from being turned into a Kia or BBQ grill or something lol

Jerome, that's handy it is in a crate as it's all ready to be shipped over to the UK!

Seriously, a fabulous find and another for your fascinating collection.
