15 hp water-cooled 4 stroke single cylinder horizontal crank 900 cc 2000 RPM diesel with oil bath air cleaner and crank start, 6 speeds FWD, 2 speeds REV. Hi/Lo selector. Multi-plate dry disc clutch, optional 2 speed tiller tine shaft. Digs 6 inches deep. Weighs 375 pounds dry.

This is a product that is made in India primarily for the Indian farmers with just a few acres of land to work. The MSRP is $2783.22 US but it would be higher than that if it was sold on this continent. Shipping costs, import duties and a domestic infrastructure for support would push the price up.

I wonder how well the seat would go over on this continent with some of the fat asses that would buy it to avoid having to actually walk. I also wonder how well the tiller drive would hold up when the tines encounter a rock, tree root or some other immovable object in the ground if there is a 350 lb operator sitting on that seat. Anyone who has operated a rear-tine walk behind knows exactly what I am talking about.

They also have a 22 HP model too.
