So I am happily working away in the yard, hook up the rototiller and start tilling an area to help remove the topsoil for construction..... and found a large rock!
Now I have a rototiller that has a very broken mount, the cast section from the lower gear case to the upper gravely gear case. any body have a spare?

I did the title like that not to draw in people but it real did make "crack :blowingup: boom" noise, and now I look at what i have said and cant help but think of the old batman tv series :rolling:
As for parts I think it would be a one in a million chance of finding one, I have no idea who make the rotoltiller because it has no tags and it turns vertically not like the gravelly row tiller.
anyway i will stick up some pics of the mess.
:D KC

[quote name='Lovintractorin']Is it a gravely rotory plow? Like this? Posted Image

LovinT i wish it was as they have nothing really to break on them.
I do have one of the gravely rotory units but this one is mounted to the bottom of the gear box of a rotor unit and has eight of the traditional rototiller tines on the shaft with the lower gear box.

If I can not find a mount/adapter i will just make a unit out of mild steel.

Nothing like welding and milling for a good machine like this!
