Well i got the tiller out again today and worked the ground a a week later, I had no problems. Never killed the engine, Worked up great. I had my son take some action shots.
Don't get too excited. Boy its fun to run a tiller.
I think i figured out something? I had the differential set for mowing the yard. Today I adjusted it to possy and it pulled great through the garden. Now if I can get my wife not to plant so I can till every weekend???? Nah she would never go for that one.

That did a really nice job. It does look like fun that's for sure. I spent about an hour today behind my walk behind tiller and my tennis elbow is flared up because of it. I'm thinking a tiller is something I should invest in. Thanks for the pics!

This is the first one i have ever owned and i must say, why was I useing the walk behind type? This was so much easier then trying to control and turn the front tine tillers. This was the best $100.00 I have ever spent on a mower and tiller. I have realy had a lot of fun with it. I spotted a early 60's Montgomery Wards this week end. Not sure of the model. Who on this sight is the best go to person to ask questions about Monky Wards?

Thanks for posting the pics. The tractor looks great and the driver really happy. I'm glad to see that other Bolens' owners were moving the earth today. Some of them tilled and a few of us plowed.

I think the garden may get bigger each time I till. Is it hard to plow with a one bottom and these tractors?

That 900 is doing a great job!

I seem to do that every year....make my garden a little bigger. A tiller behind the garden tractor will spoil ya...I walked behind a tiller for years before I got my first tractor-mounted tiller....

I plow my garden in the fall, add manure to set all winter, then I plow it all back under again in the spring.....wait for it to dry out again and start tilling......

Ain't nothing more fun than turning the dirt with your garden tractor!

My limited experience has shown that if the plow is set up correctly, these tractors will do a very good job plowing. I was plowing today and my Bolens 1000 did what I thought was a very good job. This was with a one bottom plow.There was a thread on the site about proper plow adjustment .Keep enjoying your garden experience.

Great Pics, great fun! I till with my 1948 Airens walk behind, but it is a rear tine and nothing can till like "The Beast". Your 900 is looking great! I picked up a hydro pump lift kit for my 900, but have'nt put it on.

Have fun!

The hydro really made it easy. I can't imagine doing it with a lift lever.
