Anybody out there know what the specs are for an older Howard Rotovator model J50?
I'd like to know the weight, drive(chain or gear) and recommended pto HP. It's an older model and so far I have been unable to dig up any specs.

Is this the kind of information your looking for? If your willing to spend ten bucks then this site may be able to help you out with a handbook:

Ford N newsletter people that keep photocopies of all this manner of thing. They have the owners manual and parts book for the model J. Look under Plows on the link below - scroll down to the last entry and it will read:

They have instructions on the page for ordering.

All the best with it. My father used a Howard back in the 50s and thought it to be excellent. I just have a little LandPride on my BX.

Thanks so much.
I knew that someone on TBN would come through! This board continues to be an amazing source of knowledge.
