Looks like a Allis tiller to me. Shold be a 36" one. Looks in good shape. What are they asking for it? Here are a couple of pictures of my Simplicity tiller. They look almost the same except for color.   Roger.

Do you know if he has the mule drive for it? $200.00 is a good price if it is tight. The mule drive is the hard one to find. There is a guy on another forum that makes them but i don't know what he gets for them.  Roger.

Yes....and it looks pretty nice. Its a later model but with the hand clutch so it will work on pre-cone clutch tractors too.

The pto setup will run you another $100+ if he doesnt have it. I dont give more than $75 for a tiller missing it...$100 for a nice one like what you have there. I cannot get more than $200 from an excellent, complete Simplicity tiller in my neck of the woods. Results may vary.

Man, Josh, if you happen to find one complete for those prices you are talking about please let me know, these things are like frog hair and chicken teeth around here. :D

Will do!  I'll throw it on your pallet :smilewink:

 

In all seriousness, I know of one now.  It's not as clean as the one you have pictured, but a friend of mine jsut retired from gardening, and has used his for 3-4 years now without issue.  I'd have to give it a good look before seriously recommending it to you, but I bet if I tell him I had a buyer for $200, he'd take it, and pay off a bit of the Christmas credit card bill.  It would be complete...tiller, PTO and belt.  He's using it on a 917H currently.

I would want to put it on a 716H and the tractor has nothing on the back to run the tiller, dosen't even have the rear lift parts. If you don't mind take a look at it and PM me with what you find out. :thumbs:

for a tiller the things i see missing are the tube lift and obviously the cable. i can make cables as soon as i pick up some more bulk cable and ferrules. i make em a lil short so that a clevis or link can be added for exact length needed. i dont know the specs for a 716 so i would need a measurement from someone who has an intact lift.

ya should be able to nab a tube lift for $50 or so. or fab one up if you have the means. you will also need an idler pulley that mounts to the frame. this pulley keeps the belt from rubbing on the hydro filter. very easy to make.
