hi all, recently purchased a 112 round fender tractor and what i believe is a #31 tiller. tiller is a brass tag model number E0700. the tiller was mounted on a 212 early 70s vintage. i would like to attach the tiller to the 112 but am rather confused how it is supposed to mount. i have attached photos of what i have any advice would be great thanks

The tiller you have (brass tagged, E700) was originally made for the round fender models. The bracket in the upper left of your second picture is what makes it adaptable to a SF model. You will not need that to put it on your rf, but you still need to have a rear lift kit installed on your round fender model.

Thanks for the info cat....will probly instead look for a 140 to mount the tiller to if it will attach to that model...i am much more familiar with the 300 series tractors and am just starting to get into the older stuff....much to learn

That tiller will NOT work on the 120/140/300 series machines as the PTO drive is entirely different.

Ditto to that, it will not work on a 140.

rainman_210,

 

You can use the tiller on your round fender 112, but you'll need these parts in order to attach it, or use it. All of these can be found on ebay every now and then, and a whole lot cheaper than looking for a 140 tiller. As said above, this tiller will not work on a 140. A completely different set up entirely. Good luck with your search!

Isn't there a pulley that goes towards the front that the belt drives off of?

Yes, there is a long belt that runs up to the right-side engine PTO. The pulley gadget on Rainman's lower photo is the mule drive that fits under the engine. A piece of advise from most JD owners is to always use only JD belts to avoid exasperation.

 

I understand there are 3 different mule drives editions for the various 110, 112, and other models, but I can't tell you for sure whether the one in the photo will work on the RF 112. It looks very much like the mule drive on my SF 112.

Here is a picture of the PTO drive unit that should be attached to his 112

This is a picture of the tiller drive pulley that gets attached to the PTO drive unit above.

This picture shows the outside nut removed from a 110 PTO drive unit, so that the tiller pulley can be installed.

 

Tiller Parts 004.JPG

 

This is what the PTO drive unit looks like when the tiller pulley is attached. Just screws onto the threads.

And this picture is the belt guard used under the right foot rest, to protect the driver from getting caught in the long drive belt.

 

Both the tiller drive pulley and the belt guard are very hard to find, but can be found if you are patient. Good luck with the search, and I hope things work out for you.

That package will get the tiller mounted to your tractor. You'll still need to find the drive pulley and turnbuckle though. The tiller can be run without the belt guard, so that isn't as important to find as the rest, but you'll have to use care while running the tiller, as the belts will be just below the right foot rest of your tractor.

 

Just a note, the pieces shown in your ebay picture are reproduction parts. Won't hurt anything, and will still work for you, but I'm a little leary of the lifting cable that some of these guys are making, as they make them a little longer than original, which means you won't have the lift height as an original cable will give you. If you're able to win these parts, the first thing you'll want to do is drill new holes on the rod running through the hitch bracket. This guy has the spring clip holes drilled on the outside of the hitch bracket, when in fact they should be drilled on the inside of the hitch bracket. The rod that he has made, is actually a reproduction of the weight rod, not the tiller rod.

 

Good luck to you!

Troy
