Casey, I worked on my conversion yesterday. It came out pretty well.P1010858.jpg The 1/4" steel plate flexes some and I'm not sure if I want to take all that flex out since it will allow the tiller to bounce over the rocks that I dig up. We have lots of shale in my area. There are more pictures in my Member gallery. Gary

Hey Gary, that is a great way to get that mounted, I assume you will be adding a second tiller to that?

I'd have to find a second tiller first. I almost cut the piece of angle down, but the more I thought about your idea of two tillers, the more I liked it. The little bit that I ran it, the tiller wanted to push the tractor. I have 210 pounds of wheel weights on it now plus me. Now the ground was mud so I'm sure that didn't help. Gary

Ya, mud is about impossible to till. I actually stalled the 16 hp single cylinder cast iron block B&S engine on the Gilson, and that has a 40 inch tiller. And before you ask why I don't just keep using that tractor, I will answer the question. I HATE IT!! (manual lift, doesn't like to start, uncomfortable, can pinch back nerves lifting the tiller too much, and so on...)

I used Two Stacks idea to build mine. I got the metal from the scrap yard for $15. It isn't going to flex this thing is heavy.
