    And boy did that take long enough LOL. Went over to my nearest neighbors and asked if I might rent their big rototiller to begin working up the ground where my new green house will be next year. They said I was welcome to borrow theirs but I could also have this old one that they had out in the shed. Didnt know if it worked or not. Got it out- looks to be about 1.5 million years old but is like 24 inches wide at the tiller. Got it home and DH got it started right away! Needs a bit of tuning up but that is not a problem. ... I am way excited to have this new tool/toy!

    Good grief Sisterpine. If you handle that bugger like a toy, I'll bet your husband listens closely when you tell him anything!!! You have a good time now, Ya hear?

    BE very careful, if you have heavy red clay with rocks and are of small build.. I have one that is huge, it's what I asked for my b'day one yr. I was using it and hit a rock! It picked me up off the ground and threw me into the air.. It scared dh so badly, he came running out to me, grabbed the tiller and said for me to NEVER use it again....He takes something off it so I will not be able to start it "cuz I am hard-headed" :shrug:.

    Just be careful, safe and happy w/ your new toy... QB
