Well, big difference, thanks for posting that. I'd have never known if mine are used too much, now I know. :cheers:

Way back when I just started out gardening someone gave me an old front tine tiller. The tines were very worn and having a family with very little extra money. So being a welder fabricator I took them to work and welded some hard facing on the edges of the tines. They were still in good shape when I gave it to my brother. :peace: Harry

Wow... I can't say I've ever seen a CCI rototiller with tines as nice as those new ones... Certainly not any of mine :lol:

This will be nice when you get it done I'm sure. I've gotta get around to tearing down my extra HT41 sometime this summer.

Believe me: those tines have a lot of wear left in them. Those tines are still doing a good job when the tines are very pointed and sharp! I used to till gardens until a few years ago tines were hard to get.

The inner bearing race required cutting to split the chain case.

Once the case was split, it was cleaned. New bearings, a new chain and fresh grease applied.

New hydraulic hoses and all new tined make this unit good for another 45 years.

Looks Great - Nice to see inside the chain case when you had it open... simple and robust design. :)
