Still in the Ariens box, but does have light surface rust on the bare metal parts. Not too shabby thought, always stored in storage trailer or barn. I am looking to trade for a working 42" tiller that will be a direct fit for my 3-point hitch and rear PTO on my Ariens GT 17. f your tiller is really nice, has great tines, and works well, I will throw in a new Ariens built rear Brinly hitch kit. I m willing to travel up to 60 miles to make a deal. You can PM me, but text or a phone call is faster.
