Ohlsson & Rice: Derby Tiller

Recommended Posts

Recent addition to the collection is a Derby Tiller. Here are the as-received photos. Definitely needs a good clean-up.  It might be a little while before I get to this one but I’ll add some photos as soon as I can do an initial wipe down.

Another nice find. With the popularity of those little Mantis tillers, I'm surprised we don't see more of these.

Luckily the entire fuel vent is still on there. These were also badged under a few different names

Yes, I was quite pleased to find this. I had hoped some day I might come across one and I did unexpectedly. It looks to be complete. I might put it all back together today just for grins if I get some time.  The fuel vent is all cracked and pieces of plastic are missing so it’s junk and I’ll have to figure out an alternative.

 

I agree, seems like more of these would pop up given how common the newer mini tillers seem to be.

Another nice find, it's a re-brand of the Little Wonder Power-Head with Cultivator attachment, they also made a Snow-Blower attachment, I have neither of these. I nearly bought one of the Derby Tiller versions a few years back, but the guy never got back to me on the international shipping so it never happened.

I'm guessing not many survive as they probably got chucked out when the blades got broken or worn out.

Back when you got the Little Wonder hedge trimmer I thought you were looking into designing & making a replacement with 3D printing?

Ha, yes I was but I recently left that job. I might still be able to get a buddy to make one for me sometime.
