Never seen one of these, very, very nice. Looks very capable of doing most anything. BTW, what engines are these and what is the box on top, not overhead valves are they?

Hi HeadExam The machine is a Auto Culto Junior  built around 1959 the rotavator  was only one of many attachments suitable for use with this machine they were built at Reading in the uk , The engine is a 3hp Villiers MK 15 overhead valve that is what is in the box thanks for your interest
