That will depend on the tiller with engine weight!

Does the 75/tractor include the tiller or is it separate regardless? I kind of think like Kenny that the engine mount looks added. I haven't been keeping up. Are you working on a project now? What are you going to do with your spare time? I don't think you'd have a hard time recouping your money at 75 even if the tiller isn't included. Maybe offer 75 for both?

I did a picture search, All I saw had electric sleeve hitches, and the tillers had rear support wheels, so only the front of the tiller is lifted. The one he has looks like a 3-pt is needed.

$75 for both, and Hulk II is waiting in the wings for a re-fresh. I am more interested in the tiller, but only if I can make it work on the machines I have.

$75 for both,

 

That's leaving the tractor at 50. Look at the bevel gear box close. If it's good, the package could pay for itself. Doesn't look like it would hurt much it if it stayed outside through the winter.

I am thinking to use the funds to re-fresh Hulk II and pass on this. I am looking at a couple hundred $$ as I want to do a valve and ring job, Paint, and decals, along with a clutch and light upgrade. Thanks for looking at this with me.

The tiller was modified from a rear PTO powered to its own engine added. It would need wheels added to the back. It looks very heavy. My first thought, on seeing the pics you took, is that it was for an MTD or Cub Cadet originally.

One thing to consider is that the old ACs and Simplicities did the best mowing jobs because of the rollers and suspension. Checkout www.simpletractors.net for the history and attachments available. I would go for the package or forget the whole thing. If you aren't carefull, you'll end up like me: 30 in garages and 60+ outside. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks, that was one of the down sides, the deck looked non repairable, and with the top belt cover, hard to tell what unmentionables would be under it. I agree on the deck rollers making a great cut. The LGT-145 I had had them. although I only mowed twice with him, the cut was great. I prefer the mobility of the Craftsman (RED) and as long as I clear under his deck, the cut is good.

Id wait a week, go back, and offer 60. Lots of good parts there. Part it out, keep the tiller, and put some good cash in the pocket. Just my .02 ;)
