and some more! LOOK at how big the deck is compared to a 21" LB. OMG ITS HUGE!!! Also is my HEAVY tiller from the stone age. It runs fine but its a pain to use and the reverse wont engage. The lever wont budge into reverse. Forwards works but the tines throw you about!!!

Heres the wood chipper its a craftsman with a 3.5HP tecumseh on it. It chips up the little stuff but the big stuff is a hassel for it. Its got a diaphram carb on it.

That monkey wards crank start is an old one Fixit, notice that the muffler is on the same side as the gastank/carb. It's gotta be an early 60's model. I have a monkey wards crank start also, its from 66.

Not too hard to find I guess, I have two of them, one from 68 and one from 66. Both of there decks are rock solid with hardly any rust. I would hold onto yours if I were you.

Garden Mark!

Dad used to have a Garden Mark tiller with the impulse starter like that. He was winding it up one day when the ratchet pawl broke and the crank came spinning around and broke his thumb!

He took it off and put a pull start shroud on it after that. lol
