i just got a crazy idea. my wife and i just bought a new house in watertown wi, now i was thinking of tilling up the entire yard front to back and reseeding it with kentucky blue grass. now i don't have the equipment to do that, but i'm sure there are a few of you close to me that do. now if i do that would there be a few good men and a few good machines to come and do that. i'll supply food and drinks. now remember this is still a big "IF" its just under a half acre

You sure your name isn't really Tom Sawyer and you also need the fence whitewashed? :D:D

There is no way on God's green earth that my wife will go for that, but you are more than welcome to borrow my tiller. Also, I know a local guy that has a number of tillers at his shop if you are interested in purchasing one. Let me know, Erik

Hey Shannon, Be careful for what you ask for! I did that once with moving a hot tub. I spent MORE money on pizza & beer (after it was moved...) than it would've cost me to have it moved! LOL We laughed a lot & a good time was had by ALL! JP PS I did it on Superbowl Sunday, so it had to be done before the pregame, IT WAS!! LOL

id love to buy a tiller, but first i have to get a tractor that i can mount one on. i don't believe my yeoman can handle a tiller but i may be wrong. the history on simple tractors said a tiller attachemnt was an option.

If you were a little closer to north Alabama, I'd gladly bring my homebuilt with a 1939 Briggs ZZ engine to wake up your neighborhood, and plow it about 10-12" deep for you, so the rear mounted tillers on a Simplicity could have a bit more fun!

Maybe if you worked it as a competition - a plowing match variation or rototiller test match, set rules, judge the results, have prizes, call the local paper for pictures, set entry fees, limit competitors> I better stop now, my imagination is going too far

pgl that is an awsome idea. but to be realistic i just want my grass tilled! i can't imagine what my yard would look like after a competition like that. i'm sure dirt would find dirt two blocks away after that!

I'd start by mold plowing then run a tiller on it all. I did this for a friend once, I wouldn't do it again...

The homebuilt plows in Alabama red clay easily to a depth of about 10", but the noise is wonderful, as the muffler is a straight pipe about 6" long. shorter was no good, and longer actually quieted the engine a bit! I like to keep the neighbors awake, and the 16 on my Landlord shoud do fine, as well. Wait til he decides to start cutting his grass when I try to go to bed again!!! Will be a hard decision..to cut, or simply start the ZZ
