Have done a bit of tilling and it does do a good job,albeit a narrow and shallow dig. Easier than using a pitchfork, impressed.
Decided to do an oil change and the plastic oil filler plug has been put in skewiff, so did a thread chase with a triangular file.
Problem is the "oil" was a light blue/turqoise coloured gloop about the consistency of a thin blancmangue/runny yoghurt. Never seen the likes - what could it be? Chainsaw bar oil, or ???
Have now filled with the recommended 30W oil as per the manual which is available online.
Of course the tynes are rusted solidly onto their shafts. Next job will be draining and refilling the gearbox.
