i searched but could not find a thread for pics. i don't have a gilson or a montgomery ward but i would like to see some because they look really cool. post away folks!

as per the usual MO on these kinds of threads, please post your pic, and the year, and model of the tractor...plus a description of any attachment (model #/size etc.) and any stories you might have on your tractor (how you acquired it, etc.)

ps: Mods, if there is already a thread that fills this purpose please delete this one (and please point me in the right direction because i could not find it if is out there) - thanks!:thThumbsU

Mine is a '71 Hydrostatic 14 hp. Not the original colors and the headlights are modern driving lights. Control knobs are modern machine knobs. Otherwise original. Refurbished 12/11.

There is a guy as I go to work that has one of the 16 HP ones. It looks to be in very good condition. But I've never seen too many of them and I think I only saw one at PA Plow Day.

Hi jdrobison, I wasn't aware the M Wards sold a tiller like that, I have a Sears Roto-Spader that has that arrangement, hi and lo fwd and reverse, I converted mine to a pull behind and it works great. Its amazing how well all the garden equipment was built back in the day and it still works good.

That is sharp looking,:fing32: looks like you just added the flat plate under the engine to attach your hitch to. I just put a OHV briggs on the one we use. was thinking of possibly going with a hydo motor to power the tiller. I have a pump on my 147 for a log splitter I used to pull with it. I will post pics when I get going on this, but its not at the top of the list this year. so many projects-so little time.
