Big machine and old. I have the F80 which is older again and impoosable to get parts for. The rotavator will come off and can be replaced with a plough and such like. Very useful machine. Mine weighs 660lbs to give an idea of the size. The wheel widths can be varied between  460mm to 700mm .

Good luck you will be pleased with it
always have a target
and an objective.

No, I talked myself out of it, then spent all evening kicking myself as the Monrotiller started playing up. It only made 200 which I thought was a good price and it was literally just along the road. Oh well, on the upside, today I found a really usefull chap called Paul at Meetens the small engine people who had on the shelf all the bits to replace everything except the body of the old Villiers carb on the Monrotiller. It cost me 20 quid - result, it ran quite nicely too until I ran out of juice.
Field test on the new plot tomorrow.

PS watching another one, an ISEKI on e-bay now.
Update - no I'm not, it finished 2 days ago and I missed it, doh.

Spotted another Honda (F400) close to home, Monrotiller field test succesful for an hour only, then could not restart due to flooding. Carb pulled down again last night float height etc checked, try again after dinner.... >:(

Now watching 2 F400's, saw a chap with one on the plot near mine and I must say I was quite impressed, it may be time to move on..... :unsure:

Monrotiller gets a stay of execution, a broken spring on the exhaust valve was the issue, a quick ferret through my spares pile (knckered engine) and wallop, off it went, two hours later - half a plot dug over. I do like the "bigfoot" F400 on e-bay though..... ::)
