hanging a tiller to paint

Recommended Posts


Do not try this at home. I tried to hoist a tiller in the air over my basketball goal, a 3+ inch pipe, unbeknownst to me the pipe was rotted at ground level. I hooked the tiller to a chain then threw the chain over the top of the goal support and then hooked it to the back of the Allis 716H. The tiller never really got completely off the ground before this great thud behind me told me sumting wong, this could have been really bad for my tractor or tiller

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
