Got home yesterday eve. The price tag was a bit higher than what I usually accept to pay but.... I just could'nt help it. In fact, I bought it for someone else who agreed to pay the price the seller was asking and to give me the rototiller in exchange for inspection and transport. All in all, I got a tiller for about 70$ worth of gas. I tried to strike a better deal but the seller was an old man who knew what it was worth and would not give me a penny off the 2000$ tag. But its been tended for by JD for the last 20 years since the old man bought it from a neighbour. Im pretty sure its true cos the seller was really not the mecanic type o guy lol

2 things that need my attention: A fresh coat of pait on the fender pan and adjustment of tranny controls because the tractor creeps foward when in neutral.

heres the lil bull

Great find.  Those attachments look to be in excellent condition along with the tractor.  Is it powered by the KT17 or an Onan or ???

Nice setup, and it's great that you got the tiller for the price of the gas and your expertise as a consultant.

 

Since the tractor, mower, and snowblower are going to someone else, what tractor is the tiller to be mounted on? I ask because I have the Parts Manual and two Operator's Manuals for the 33 tiller. One OM says it is for the 300, 120, and 140. The other is for 317, 316, 314, 312, 300, 120, 140. Let me know in a PM if you are interested in any of them.

Why is it your place to worry about the paint & creeping?  Seems you did your part already.

No real loser here. The equivalent to the 317 nowadays sells for 13k. cant get a tractor with hydro and the 3 top attachements for that price here. In Qc is considered a decent price.
