ok so theres this bolens down the road from me, i got the money to buy it, its a 1050 with a square back tiller and a deck. i dont know if the guy is gone to the carolinas for the winter yet or not, but if he is the tractor and tiller will be further exposed to the elements. if he is gone would it be rude to properly cover the tractor and tiller for him, well me, since i know he wants to sell it???. also whats better a round back tiller or a square back? the tiller looks a bit big for a 10 horse engine, it looks to be about 30 inches or so.

I had a round back tiller with the tine extension kit on it. That made it @30", and my G10 didn't have a problem running it.

As for covering it? Do you know this guy and/or have you talked to him about buying the tractor? Do you and he know folks in common? Maybe they could give you some insight as to how he would react to an action like that.

people say he used to be a crack head. i mean if someone covered my tractors for me while i was away for 6 months id thank them. ive talked to him before. if hes gone for the winter ill cover them, and uncover them before he gets back lol. that tiller is staring at me saying " buy me, buy meeee"

I have a 1054 (10hp) with a 33 inch tiller it doesnt even dog down a little when tilling however if it does not have a hydro lift you may want to look into that it is very heavy.

The "square" backed tillers are more ruggedly built than the older round top models.
And that 1050 should have no problem running it. Those square backs are heavy though!

$250 with the tiller is a steal, especially if it's running or near running(needs carb cleaned, battery, etc.).

alright so the guy is definately gone for the winter. my buddy jokingly said roll it to the road, put a free sign on it at 3 AM come at 6 and grab it. but that would most likely get me arrested.

I picked up a 1250 with a tiller and the tine extension on the tiller. I took the tine ext. off that tiller and put it (and the top plate extension) on the 24 inch tiller that came with my H14. The H14 runs it just fine, no problems at all.
