I think some of the JD tillers that fit the old 3XX series will work. I am keeping my eyes open for a case hydraulic tiller. I am thinking of running the pump off the rear PTO.

Good deal on that unit man. As tillers go the Honda tiller for the RT5000, 5013, and 5018 are category 0 3 point with 2000 rpm input shaft. That should be compatable. This helps me too as to what implements are compatible with my Honda 5518. :thumbs:

I don't really need a snow blower in Kentucky. What does one of these go for, anyone needing this one?

Being from Ky myself, I have no idea about it's worth, but man, it looks to never have been used!

In my quest to find a Tiller, I came across this today. I don't have a use for one so I didn't ask the price of the blower, just if there were any other implements where that came from. Saddly the answer was no.

Ok, I had my dad bring the tractor to me today, and after unloading it we were adjusting the throtle so that the motor was turning the full 3600 RMP at full throttle when the drive shaft sheared off right behind the motor before the first pully. He has taken it back home to repair it. I'm sure that those parts are more easily made than found. Good too have a machine shop in the family. will post pictures in a few weeks of the tractor when I go pick it up.

When the shaft broke it got into the fan. How important is the cooling fan on the hydrostatic transmission?

For an Eaton, I'm not sure. For a Sunstrand, well mine fell apart about 15 years ago and hasn't been replaced. But it's a little cooler up here and I use mine mostly for snow removal. I have used it with the FEL for several hours at a stretch in 80* temps with no overheating problems. But that type of work is not as hard for those transmissions as pulling a plough.

Cant say for sure, but the Wheelhorse D series uses an eaton hydro also. The early models (pre75) did not come with a cooling fan, after that they did. It was a 12VDC electirc fan. I have not seen one personally, just seen it in the parts manuals. Both of my snappers have eatons and I stil have the fans on them. $67 seems like alot but it should also include the metal hub that secures it to the shaft.

Where do I find u-joints for the shaft that drives the mowing deck. noticed a vibration in it and looked it over to find that the needle bearings were gone on one side.
