Farmboy,

ME Tillers were bought out by Bolens sometime in the mid 50's. If you'd like to find out more about these (or any other) tillers, check out this site:

http://www.donaldantiquerototillers.com/ME.html

This is a great resource for anyone who has even a passing interest in tillers of any make or national origin.

btw, I once had an M-E tiller that might be similar to yours, but mine had a little Wisconsin (ACN, I think) on it and had semi pneumatic rubber tires. It wasn't a bad little tiller for cultivating and the like, but it was too light for any serious groundbreaking.

Steve
