Barreto Model 1320 Tiller

This is my first big purchase for my farm.   I purchased this tiller from the gardener who lives on site.  It was a rental from Home Depot - so I am sure it has some hard use in it's background,  but I got it for a good price.   New ones run from $5000-6000.00 and used ones from $1500-3000.   I paid less the $500.00 for it and he had it tuned up also before I purchased it.  Considering that my vegetable rows will be 50 feet long and 4 feet wide, its not possible to till all that by hand.   Hopefully it lasts 3-4 years if I take care of it.
Here are some pictures of the tiller.  The trailer which is custom made for the tiller was included.
