Rear tiller attachment for GT16
Posted June 07, 2010 - 09:17 AM
First I would like to introduce myself. I am from the cincinnati ohio area. I am new to the forum but have been around ariens lawn equipment all my life. My grandfather ran his own lawn care buisness for over 40 years. He was one of the very few ariens dealers in the area. He bleed orange. I have 2 ariens riders. An old ariens emperor (Had this since I was 7 years old), and a GT16.
Now to my question. I have the opportunity to purchase a 831006 rear tiller attachment for my GT. He is also including the rear pto. He states that the rear pto is manual. I have not been able to find out any information about a manual pto anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find info on it or how it works? Thanks in advance.

Enjoy the many Forums here at GTT!
Sorry, I'm not much help with the Ariens
Hopefully someone who knows their Ariens will be along to help.

Hope this helps but if the seller had an early enough tractor, maybe even the S series or New Holland version it could have the so called "manual PTO". in this setup there was no electric clutch between the engine transmission pass through and the rear PTO. The tiller still can be turned on and off as it has a pull rod which engages the double belts to drive the tines. I can't remember if the rear vac worked the same way or not. You can find this stuff in the Ariens online parts lookup. If you get the Model and Ser. of the sellers tractor you can see what he had.
