Cub Cadet Tiller
Have a 1973 model Cub Tiller that was my granfathers. I got it running a few weeks ago and used it in the garden. It is now on the second engine (5hp Briggs). I have been getting all of his old tillers running.

Lookin' good, Flint! I have a 562 Cub front-tine tiller for raised beds and I really like it. One pull and it's running. You say you have other tillers?:wwp:

That was a picture of me when I was about 10. I do have other tillers. I have a Troy Bilt Pony, Troy Bilt Junior (with clinton engine(need to get running), Cub Cadet, Yazoo Rear tine Working on right now) and two Merry Tillers. I also have a few more to move to my house from my grandfathers I will get name brands when I get them. I also have several mower decks. Oh, and a snapper front tine (Need to get running).

I used a front-tine tiller the other day to unfortunately break up ground. What a PIA that was!

I repowered a Springfield 3 1/2 horse Briggs with a 10 horse Honda. Lots of power, no control whatsoever! We still use the Cub for raised beds, but use a 3 pt 4 footer for flatland gardens.

Flint, do you have any pics of the Merry's? I don't think I've ever seen one.

a tiller I found had a set of those spiked tines on them and I thought they were home made. So I put regular tines on it. How do the spiked tines work?

I use the spike tines for fertilizer incorporation, works pretty good. Mine are homemade.

Holding on was a big problem. Hitting roots and holding on was a little bigger problem. The heighth of the Honda made it topheavy, too. I'll give it one thing, it stayed in the ground!
Thanks for the Merry pics. Are those aeration spikes in the ad? And they say that's a new idea!

They are aeration spikes.
Here are some shots of mine.
And the MF65 and MF 1085 just for fun with the JD 4440.

Flint, nice herd of tractors. A friend has a 1085MF and says it's the easiest thing he's ever had on fuel. A you going to get the Merry running?
I'd like to try thatching with a front tine sometime. Might be worth the shop time.
Got the Merry's running last weekend. Running great.
