Interesting information, John, and thanks for getting back with me, with make and conditions rototiller was working under, especially knowing that NAA wasn't up to snuff power-wise.
Frankly, I'm amazed rototiller could perform satisfactorily on a horse-pounded pasture, most especially seeing as how clay is involved. I would never have guessed! :-) Just goes to show that old dogs can learn new tricks (but we probably can't remember it the next time LOL "Older I get the more I think about the "herein" and "hereafter" ... "what am I am in here for, and what am I here after?" :-)
My tractor's bumper sticker could read "Of all the things I've lost, I miss my memory the most" >:'-D
No way would I purchase $1,000+ rototiller, when I enjoy fabricating and experimenting so much (besides to which, I don't have a spare $1,000 to put into some salesman's pocket lol).
Probably no one's interested in my DIY, redneck-engineered, self-propelled PTO rototiller design, but ... lol ... I'll tell you-all about it anyway! ;-)
Northeastern Kansas, we have access to used sucker rod & casing pipe, repurposed from oil well maintenance, so that's what a lot of DIY home grown projects are made from.
I suppose I should learn one of those 3D CAD programs, so I could paste a picture up, rather than trying to describe it? ...
All right, all right, you win! I won't bore you-all to death! lol :-)
My email is open if anyone wants further rendition of "redneck construction" details :-)
