Curious mod to a 36" tiller

Ben, Andy, and Abe bought this for me today at the estate sale of a local lawn mower shop owner and friend of mine.

Pretty nicely done 3 point hitch mod with platform for a engine to power it.

Whats really nice about it is that no extra holes were drilled in the tiller, and no damage done to any part of the tiller itself. Should be able to unbolt it all and return the tiller to its original configuration.

 

Thought I'd share  pictures befre I do away with someone elses well done hard work and engineering.

Thanks for sharing the pics.  The tiller looks to be in good shape except the tines (bend angle)?  Could be the pics, or more likely my memory!

If I had a 5hp aluminum engine, I'd toss it on , put it on my Sunstar 3 point,  and try the configuration out.  Too much iron hanging on the tiller in my opinion anyhow....

 

As to the bend angle on the tines , it appears to be a distortion from the picture angle.  I have another 36 and a 32 here and they all appear to be the same sort of bend...other than a few that have bent more form use.

Didn't have the JD 112 w/tiller I'd be interested in the whole setup

I'd think a 212cc from Harbor Freight would be ideal and cheap

Just my $.02
