Well I got a tiller I can sell you when the time comes,

You will need the missing PTO & lift lever for it though!!

That sounds expensive! Haha.
To be honest I have no idea or even proper use for any off the attatchments. But when I get into the swing off things I may follow them up. Quite like the look off the ploughing too.

Indeed the smile is priceless!
With regards to spares i think i will just keep my eyes open and pick them up as I go along. It won't have a hard life. Just a toy/ show piece.
It's currently on the manual pull start
.. the day after I spent an afternoon getting it running I woke with blistered hands and my sides ached! Haha. I have a dynamo starter with it, just need the wiring harness making and also the top bracket


Sounds like you have it all planned out for spares.

As far as the hands, and sg/dynamo, take your time. It just takes a little tidying to get it correct, then you'll be celebrating! ;) Cheers!

Definitely not BRG (British Racing Green) as that would be a dark green. Probably is a John Deere Sabre colour?


Looks closer to Oliver green.


That would fit with the red wheels as well.
