They look great! You should post a video of tiller in action. The decal on your truck is really cool, I'll bet some one could make a buck selling those! :lol:

In NYS - having a website or business name on your vehicle - means you need to register w/USDOT and stop at all Truck Inspection stations.

Like the decal and the tiller.

Great looking rototiller. but can someone explain to me what is a despeeder. I aquired a howard rototiller but can't use it because its for a fast hitch.

The despeeder slows down the tractor to a crawl. It fits between the transmission and final casting. Unfortunately, expensive and hard to find.

Gary B: A Howard CD6 "despeeder" cuts the speed roughly in half for tilling. The Cub is just a little too fast to do a real good job without it, but plenty of guys here a have tiller without them, and always manage to grow a real nice garden. Its a round looking gear box that mounts between the left final drive and the transmission. I'm glad you found yourself a Howard L-28. Those are tough little units.

John, that Howard looks great, if I do say so myself.
Are you prepared for all the farm girls that are going to be chasing you down the road with that bumper sticker on your tailgate now?? :shock:

I am prepared for them, just can't remember what to do with them. :cry:


There is a definite reason for this decal.

I was mowing some heavy weeds that had grown up in an unused calf lot, and had the Despeeder engaged to reduce my speed and let the flail mower get a better cut. The rear wheels went down into a depression where a water trough used to set, and just as they got to the bottom the flail caught on a half buried railroad tie I could not see. The combination of the depression putting more tread than normal in contact with the ground, wheel weights, and the Despeeder engaged, caused the left final drive top shaft to snap. It gives you a sick feeling when you stop moving without the governor even opening. I was thankful that was the problem, there are no parts available for the Despeeder, and that top shaft is the easiest to replace and cheapest part that could have caused the problem.

you are part of the problem!!!
