  • Hi everyone. Just to say I am aware of the 3hp decal being upside down. I am hoping to turn it around.

    • Really?? Where can I get those? I've been searching for months, but I really want some vintage circa 1965 decals.

  • Built in 1980... and going by the looks of it immediately thrown in the Atlantic ocean where it sat ever since. Awesome work! I can't get enough of videos like this, there's something particularly satisfying about seeing something "irreparable" getting restored, 99.999% of everyone else would have immediately junked it as scrap metal!

  • Why replace a decal and not replace the bolts? Using Philips, some Allen and new hex screws would be a real peace of mind for me... Just a few bucks

  • The Flymo label really has a late 70's early 80's look, right down to the color scheme. The orange blade guard was a great paint job. That brown paint wasn't very cooperative. Too bad you couldn't have used the same kind of paint as the orange, which went on much better. Which salt water ocean was this stored in or around?

  • I know I’m commenting on an older video but my dude, I say this with all the love in my heart, I am never bored watching this kind of thing, I like your process and the videos, but I have discovered that watching these after I get off my night shift really helps relax me to the point that I don’t even realize my eyes have closed and it follows me into a half awake state and then I’m waking up 4-5 hours later and it’s glorious- i don’t get a full 8 but I get something and I’m not anxious. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  • Почему мне кажется, что состояние этого мотоблока до реставрации - это обман? Его специально чем то облили чтобы он быстро внешне испортился. Я разбирал старую технику, которой не пользовались долго, и никогда в ней так хорошо все болты и гайки не откручивались. Работа сделана хорошо, но это фейк!

    • Possibly it's "new old" stock from eBay; though apparently Briggs and Stratton made HEAPS of parts, so maybr right from them, too!

  • My father used a MerryTiller rotovator much like that one, and from his I think you may be missing a part, namely a skid that fixes on where the transport wheels go. When you're using a rotovator like a MerryTiller, you use your weight on the handlebars to slow it down and force it to dig in; that way you don't have to be hugely strong to stop it running away over a hard soil surface, you just have to put weight downwards onto the handlebars and skid to make it stay still. That should make the tines dig in better and dig deeper. MerryTiller produced three types of tines for their machines; the slasher tines like the ones on your machine, stirrer tines intended for very light soil, and pick tines intended for breaking up very hard soils. If you take off the outer set of tines on your machine, the weight of the machine makes it dig in deeper; this is a different strategy for hard to dig soils.
