Can anyone ID this tiller? The tin is 40" side to side. I know the front cat1 arms were added as well as the bastard PTO shaft. But WHAT is the main tiller portion???

I'll follow up to my own question... Based on this thread by ggsteve on MTF it is a Bolens tiller: http://www.mytractor...ad.php?t=212999

Do you have any idea what it started as and what size tractor it was for? the tin appears to original but it doesn't have an extention to make it the 40" width.

It looks like its for a large frame. One way to tell is which direction you have to turn the pto shaft. Do you own it?

Not yet. I've got a trade deal with a guy pending. I would just like to know as much as I can about it before I go. I plan to use it behind my Kubota. The CO says he took it on trade and used it but it's too small for his tractor.

 

I don't mind the hacked mounts and shaft since I will likely modify them to fit the Kubota's 3pt anyway.

So which turns which way?

I don't remember which is which. Download this guide http://groups.yahoo....tachment Guide/  and check the model number of the tiller. Good Luck, Rick

 

We have some of these files in our manuals section but they are separated files by tractor size.

My tractor's PTO rotates clockwise which is standard for tractors here. I called up the seller and got him to check and sure enough the tiller is a CCW tiller. So the only way to use it would be if I could flip the tines and use it as a reverse rotating tiller.

 

Anyone have any advice?

Do you know if it is possible to use this gear box in reverse rotation?

I passed on this and he never has gottenback to me about flipping the tines anyway... I'm glad too because for the same money I found a Kubota 36" 3pt PTO driven tiller and made a deal this morning. I hope to have it in dirt as soon as it dries out enough.

In case everyone hasn't seen the "what did you do WITH" thread... I got the Kubota tiller that is a matched tiller for my old B5100. The rear half of the tillers PTO shaft was shot and it also has some strange female spline that no one had ever seen before. The seller gave me half of another PTO shaft and with a yoke and Ujoint I was able to get it going. After testing it out I chained the chain box and gear box oils. She should be ready to do some work now.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I did two passes in the garden and it did a great job!

That original tiller might have been for a MTD 990 - they look very much like a Bolens. The tinwork and remnants of the mounts are a dead ringer for a 990 tiller.

 

As for rotation, though - the MTD would have CW facing the tiller input shaft, so in that case I'm not sure. Or is that correct for a CW PTO? Depends on which way you're looking at it.
