:confuse:I finally mounted the 550 tiller to my MF 16 Hydro thanks to info I received from THECOATER today. I can still need some info on how to make connections for the lifting process. I removed the rear cylinder to mount the tiller...where do I go from here? I'm sure that I still have some missing linkage that raises and lowers the tiller.

ok the bar that goes across the top of the tractor in the second pic you need to take that off and behind that there should be a spot for the top bolt on the tiller
and there should be a slot where the chain would go -chain is there for slight adjustment to get it a bit higher/tighter and to keep it from twisting up

then in the same 2nd pic you see the bracket with the 3 bolt holes theres a bar that goes from them (another spot for height adjustment) to the hydro under the tractor that raises and lifts
like I said I can get ya pics if someone else cant but its raining now

Hey guys,
I also have the 550 tiller for my MF16. I noticed in the manual, there are a number of guards that mount under the tractor to help suppurt the belt (I am assuming). Do you guys run w/o these without issues??

if there is a bunch of guards I dont have them ,
when I bought it didnt know they were there so I had no clue until I joined here that they even existed so if you wanna take a pic and slap it up here I might be able to have them made

Thanks guys for the information and the pictures. I made some progress and found a few more parts that I did'nt know that I had. I'll make some connections and post more pictures in a couple of days. Does anyone have any idea what I need to do with the cylinder that I removed from the rear of the tractor?

Sorry to bring up an old topic, did a google search and this came up... is there anyway you can get me the dimensions of the lift arm that goes from this tiller to pivot on the cylinder? picked up a mf 14 with a 550 tiller and it didnt come with it.

Thanks!

Welcome! Hopefully someone can find that info for you soon.Sometimes takes a bit for the right person to see what you are asking for, but they will be along.
