Wish we woulda had that bad boy instead of the puny rototiller we used to use for my Mom's garden. Would have made quick work. Is it relatively easy to control?

Wow, back when they made things that lasted. Won't find many current tillers still running 80 years from now.

On a side note: can anyone say DIRT CLOD FIGHT!  ;D

It's a workout to run and this pic was 2012 a pretty dry year but it still turned the hard ground over. 2 cylinder around 5hp, 2 speeds forward and one reverse, and was made in Minneapolis, MN. Has been in the family since the early 50's.
