This is the same tiller I have. Bought it off craiglist for $70 about 15 years ago and put about $100 in repairs at a small motors shop a few years later replacing some bad gaskets. When I loaded it back up the guy told me he bet this thing just chews up turf as they don't make them this heavy anymore and I could probably sell it for what a new one costs. Told him for being out under $200 total on it no way I am selling it because even a new $500 tiller is not going to do the job this thing will do.

Here's my restored 1950's Ariens with a Wisconsin (I think) engine on it.. no belts, all gear, clutch and chain drives.. Paid $200 as a basketcase and probably put $400 into it with new tires and such.. weighs a freaking ton

Growing up, we had a neighbor that used a team of mules. I was allowed to plow with them on a couple of occasions. This guy never owned a tractor, he cut and raked hay with that team of mules too.

Those BCS tractors ain't cheap!

My Dad had 4 teams of miniature mules (under 50 inches) He showed at several fairs around, local fair, Ozark Empire Fair, Missouri State Fair, went to DuQuoin State Fair and SE Missouri Fair and a few others occasionally. Won lots of trophies too!

He also plowed ground with them, had a 5 ft sickle bar mower (mowed hay), had a stud cart that he could pull the hay rake with and had a New Holland square baler with a Wisconsin motor on it.
