Model 3 & 2 Model 3 & 2 Model 2 serial number location.
45 2218 Roto-Ette Model 2 serial number. I believe this one was built in April of 1955. Top number being the month, the bottom the last digit of the year, and the 4 digit number indicating this unit's particular number in the production series. This number is stamped on the "Lightning Change Front", behind the disc that is mounted on the pin where all the attachments go.

This is a Rototiller Mow-Tiller with attached chute for cutting corn stalks and other garden residue. The mower detaches quickly and a rototiller attaches in its place. Two pieces of lawn and garden equipment for one engine.

The tiller on the right is the very first Model 2 that I acquired. I beleive it was made in 1953. In the photo is has a 5 hp Tecumseh engine mounted. I just finished the correct B&S Model 8 engine for it. This is my worker tillers. It is really great for working up flower beds.

A view showing the working end of the collection. Note the adjustable rear flaps on the far two tillers. As far as I know, 1957 was the only year that was used.
