Title: Rotorvator Identification
Post by: Lee Mallett on October 09, 2021, 20:47
Hi,
Iím new here. I have an old rotorvator that was my late grandfatherís and Iíd love to restore it for sentimental purposes. He taught me so much and really looked after this machine so it only seems right to get the old girl working again.
Could anybody tell me the make / model please?

Welcome to the forums, Lee.  Iíve no idea about rotavators but she looks a beauty.

We have a few good engineers here who may be able to help you.

I think it is a Mountfield M1 The way the handles adjust is a bit odd, but it could be an early version.
