Well I think I am going to try an see if I can make a tiller for my Ford 195,, A buddy gave me an ol Snapper tiller today an I went over to get it an seen that it had a side shaft motor on it, So I was thinkin that I mite be able to take the handles off an wheels and the motor an try to make it work on my 195,, Its just a prodject to try out but I think I could make it work out,,lol,, I will be doing it this winter while I restore my 195 an hope she be ready for next year,, What do you all think on this,, Here is a pic of the tiller,, I think I can make it work off of the shaft that comes out the side of the trans or can try to get it to work from the front P.T.O,, I can't find a P.T.O for the rear of my 195 yet,,

Where there's a will, there's a way. If you put it on the front, you have to till in reverse. Plus it looks a bit skinny for that big Ford! Just throwing some things out here!

Yea I hear that Kenny,,, Just something I was thinking about an if I put in on the back then I could make the brackets on the front of the tiller,, I was hopeing I could find somemore blades for it to make it wider but not sure,,

We need to find you the rear PTO for that 195. Another option: get another tiller like that, Have them side-by-side. Use the original engines and just tow them with the 195! Just options!

I think it would be much easier to do what Kenny says using your 3pt. to lift and lower the tiller or 2 tillers if you want. The 8hp tow behind tillers work great but I don't think they would be wide enough to cover the rear of a 195. You could offset it to one side and again this would be much easier if you don't have to figure out a drive scheme.
