I see you got one of them fancy flywheel things for the front
yes, the counterweights are professionally balanced and finely tuned to the rock box:fing32:

all kidding aside, the power wheel barrow machine is pretty beat up compared to the other but it's my favorite... hands down.

all it needs is a rebuilt engine, transmission, rear end, new paint, steering box rebuild... and some new tires... etc...;)

btw, i have the 4 tine tiller and fully functional factory snow plow for it too.

What is that box on the back and what does the front flywheel do?
box on the back was made out of body parts from a couple different old dodge trucks. it is hinged and dumps itself with the pull of a lever. once it dumps you just reach back and tilt it forward, the box itself is very light.

the counterweight on the front is an old 6cyl crankshaft that i dug out of the dirt, with the flywheel rusted on.

i notched a couple pieces of 1/2 x 6 flatbar to hook on the tractor bumper and cradle the crankshaft. the whole works lifts off. the rock box is mounted via an inverted 3 point design and can be removed to mount the tiller.:)
