Tiller is worth the asking price.

How the heck is the tiller powered, though? The 200 series doesn't accept that model of tiller.

I'd like to know that as well,looking at the picture it's a manual lift so no hydro there,even if it did have the optional hydraulics I doubt it had the flow capacity to run a tiller.

That's the reason I posted. I found the hydraulic powered tiller interesting. From what I've read, there is a kit you can buy either in electric or hydraulic for the JD 200 series. I searched Ebay and found one. Most say go with the hydraulic kit, electric burns out quick.

I agree with Cat the Tiller is a highly desireable unit and woth the price.

After I bought my 318 I started looking for a tiller for it. They seem to be scarce as hens teeth and very expensive..

It became obvious that it would be cheaper to find a Gt with one mounted rather buy the tiller and mule drive for the Hydralics.

I have seen Hydralic tillers on 214's There is a mule drive from the PTO down to the right side of the 214. The Belt runs to the hydralic pump on a frame under the Gt . From there it is simple plumbing.

While I am doing most of my gardening with the Ford 1500. I would still like to have one of these with a 30" Hydraulic Tiller to cultivate between my rows once plants get too tall to stradle with the ford.  I plant all my rows on 36" center, since space is not an issue in my case.

You can belt drive a pump on most tractors to run one of those. They are very rare and I've only seen one in 4 years and it was a 5 hr drive from me.
