Rotary Tiller

First Rotary TillerJesse then built a rotary tiller. There was a Howard tiller already being built, but Jesse knew he could improve on it. He figured it would work better with belts than a gear drive like Howard had. They tried all different belts, mostly they didn’t hold up until finally Orie Durland (Jesse’s top man) tried the cheapest belts he could find, then they worked out very well. They eventually built them from 4 foot to 22 foot wide. Jesse also built a three point hitch, along with a PTO to go onto a Caterpillar tractor, so they too could use the rotary tiller he had developed.
