Re: garden tiller made by Burns info>>>>>
Made some pics of the tiller today. I was cleaning up my tractor and tiller and mower, so I power washed the tiller, too. Skizman, if you'll PM me your e-mail address, I'll send you these pics at full rez, if you'd like. I have quite a few closeups of the pulley system and linkages. Here is the basic side view with the drive cover off, and also one of the mfg plate. ist pic shows the drive in neutral, you can see that the belt to the tine drive is slack. 2nd pic show it in drive (forward), you can see the difference in pulley position and the tight belt.
The toothed belt drives the tines, the small pulley is connected to a chain drive to the tines. The large pulley goes to another chain drive to the wheels. The forward motion actually comes from the reverse shaft on the engine, while the crankshaft drives the tines directly.
