On gumtree, the hard to find rover tiller/mower set up. First one I have ever seen and have heard the tiller leg is hard to get

Not bad for $65, despite an apparently knackered engine

Nice, certainly worth the $65! they are hard to come by, you either find the complete mower or complete tiller but rarely the whole setup. Hopefully it comes with the blade disk, they are special to this setup. Took me ages to find mine. To be 100% you would need the catcher and windrower as well.

Hi Nath, seems gone, but it didn't come with a blade disc - what does it look like? I was wondering how easy it would be to get off

Someone would have snapped it up.

Looks basically the same as a normal rover disk, but has a hex drive welded to it to fit over the engine drive boss. Undoes with one bolt. Rover's official advertisement boasted that it could be swapped over in 48 seconds! And that's before the days of rattle guns.

Thansk nath. Have never seen one before, so if I see something odd like that I will pick it up

A complete (if a bit tatty) one is available in QLD for $170 (bit steep). Apparently complete except newer motor

https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/palmers-island/lawn-mowers/rover-mower-and-rotary-hoe/1294401425

Unfortunately seems in the middle of woop woop (half way between coffs and byron)
