Last week my neighbor had a 2 stroke craftsman tiller that he said he worked on for hours and couldn't get it to run. He said he's not that good with engines so he gave it to me for free and said if i get it running or not I can have it. So I looked at it for 15 min and it runs good now. Today I was thinking I really want a tiller for the 1053. A tiller for it is not very cheap though. So Ire engineered it and mounted it on the back of the bolens and it works great!! I put it in first gear low range and set the tow strap to the right level and tilled I can't believe that it works as good as it does. HPIM1694.jpg

If you can find two more of these, you have full width behind that Bolens.:bigrofl:

Nice job of using available parts to have a pull behind tiller.
