    More pics of my 2520 w/ the new 647 tiller and pics of my old 2240 as promised

    Hey guys,

    All I have to say is the tiller is an awesome piece of equipment!!!!!



    My 2240 that my grandfather bought new. I can't remember off hand what year it is. He left it to me when he passed away. Not in showroom condition but not bad for its age.



    My first attempt at a home garden

    My wife and and her parents

    I thought it was a large plot myself. I'm 32 yr old so I don't have a lot of experience when it comes to taking care of a garden. My mother lives close and my wife's parents live close so they are all going to jump in and help. I always drove the tractors and my grandfather did all the hard work.

    I use the 2240 a good bit. We live on 50 acres and about 20 acres of it is grass. Use a large bush hog to mow it down. I used it to make the rows for the garden too. Has been a solid tractor!

    We are going to have a lot of help. I can't even remember what we planted! Okra, beans, several peppers, watermelon, cantaloupe, etc........

    I had the 647 tiller and I just sold it this year (made raised garden beds). It is a commercial grade tiller and I found that it worked really well and trouble free. Did you happen to buy this new or used?
