    What would be a fair asking price for this tiller?
    Grampa can't use it anymore :(

    Starts and runs
    A little on the wet side to test tilling here this time of year.

    I have to split what i get with my brother and may just pay him off and keep it.

    Have a 7 hp kohler from this era and has only needed routine maint. (oil/filters) stop using because deer got more food from our garden then us.

    Thank you for the feedback

    Parts are available but insane. I have a friend that paid $300 just for the gears that go on the axles...
