hey, there is a gravely tiller at an upcoming action near me. it looks great and i'd love to modify it for our 1650. does anyone know the rpm of the gravely riders pto? and do they turn the same direction. it is a beefy looking unit with good tines and about 36-40"

There isn't much said around here on the gravely riders. I am not that very familiar with them. There are two styles, front engine and rear engine. You don't see many with the front engine which was made by Ariens. The two styles would have different drive lines to power the attachments. I am thinking that the pto might be at engine speed.

Shorty, treeslayer also posted this in another forum, I asked for more info and said about the same as you. Hard to say with so little to go on and 1650 what? 1650 Cub, Massey, White? I'm sorry I dont know what he has or the tiller. The new model ariens tillers with a drive shaft may hook up to a Massey 1650, and possibly the White, but not the Cub. Hope to see another post, sounds interesting.

All your 800/8000 riders have the same pto speed. 1200 rpm. Makes no difference if its front or back as they are driven off of the same drive.

Your exactly right, but without an idea what the tiller is, or what tractor it fits, it seems a mute point

hey guys, thanks for the replies. 1650 massey repowered with p220 onan. I think the pto speed on them is 2000? the tiller is alone at an upcoming auction, it is gravely and I believe for a rear engine. it is a very heavy duty looking tiller. I thought gravely speed may be different. thanks again.

Also, don't get confused between a gravely rotary cultivator and a gravely tiller. All gravely "tillers" for the walk behinds were rotary cultivators. They do not take the abuse. Do some research here.  ;http://gravelytracto...ening-equipment

The only gravely tiller I know you can use is from the GravelyGT18, and GravelyGT20 late model shaft drives which were Ariens clones, I dontthink you can even use one from the 7173H or 7193H as they were belt and pulley shaft drive, maybe but youd be modifying

The only problem I can see in the Gravely reatiller that hooks to the rea is that the drive shaft is off set to the right you might be able to change the mount so the whole tiller sets off set and the shaft is in the middle, just really hared to speculate on something notseen
