Thanks for the info! The reason I ask is that I don't have any of the driveshaft or gearbox setup for the 650 to be able to figure out how fast it would turn at 3600 engine RPM. If I make the 650 tiller into a cat 0 three point hitch mounted tiller I would have to make the pto shaft also to run it off of the 2000 rpm PTO on my 1650. As the shaft is offset quite a bit on the tiller and the 1650 PTO is centered I was thinking of making a roller chain and sprocket drive to adjust the speed as needed. Another question would be how many RPM a normal tiller turns at the tines and I could figure out the needed driveshaft RPM from that.
I have an Operators manual that say's tiller tine speed 135RPM
It also say's to run the engine at 3/4 speed, and the tractor ground speed should be 2MPH.
