i found a roto-hoe 500h chipper shredder today being thown out today the motor is missing 5hp i guess the pullys are on the same side as the pto on my d/a 19h it looks like it spins in the same direction im thinking of making a platform hitch and seeing if i can make it work does this sound reasonable or should i look for a replacement 5 hp engine has anyone done this before ?And is anyone familer with roro-hoe equip?

Hi Tom, I picked up a 1976 roto-hoe chipper/shredder minus motor last fall. I was told it had a Tecumseh 4hp but I think it was bigger cause the 5hp tiller motor I put on bogged untill I changed drive pulleys. I used it about 15-18 hours last fall and found it to be a tough piecs of equipment. As for driving it off your D/A19, I have a Simplicity 17 GTH-L and I may try that just to see if it will work. Let me know if you try this. Larry

I did some welding on a Roto-Hoe chipper last year, I don't remember the type of engine, but I do remember that as for chipping brush it was pretty well worthless, maybe for leaves it would work better. The Roto-hoe has a rotating fly wheel to chunk up the brush and a hammer-mill to pulverize it, the chips eventually fall out the bottom. If you feed it a 3/4" stick it will do a lot of jumping around and vibrating plus it puts a lot of vibration into your wrists. The mower deck on my B-10 set at the highest position does a much better job on the woody brush and is a lot quicker.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
