Hey guys. So I acquired a jacobsen gt14 hydro a couple months ago. With it, I got a dozer blade, mowing deck and a rear mount tiller. I finally got the tractor running and driving, so I decided I would use it for some tilling. I backed the tractor up to it and I realized that I don't think it will fit. On the tiller it says "allis chalmers mfg no. 2029936, serial no. 3317". The tiller looks like it hooks to a 3 pt hitch. It looks like the tractor sort of has one, but the tiller doesn't match up with it. So if anyone here would have an idea of what's going on, I'd greatly appreciate to hear it. Thanks guys!

Unfortunately you have incompatible equipment. I have seen folks modify AC tillers to work on a variety of tractors but am unfamiliar with how a Jake runs rear attachments. Best start shopping for an Allis or Simplicity! =]

Well, it just so happens that simplicity made the tillers that Jacobsen sold.
The interconnections were different. But, the tillers were the same.
If You can post some pictures? That would help.
I have both Jacobsen and Simplicity tillers.
The main difference was that Simplicity's were belt driven. And, Jacobsen's were shaft driven.

Is the tiller you have setup for a driveshaft or belt? If its belt driven your up a creek with out a paddle, but if it is then you may be in luck .
Also your Jake needs to have the rear pto system too , if it does not.... Who doggy!! You are up the creek , no paddle and taking on water.

It's an ac tiller. The 3 pt hitch forks on the tiller are too narrow for the hitch points on the jacobsen. And the tiller is belt driven, not shaft.

What about the pto on the tractor? The tiller could be modified to work but if you have no pto to drive it... Your in for a pile of work and possibly money.
One option though would be to power the tiller seperately by mounting an engine on it and then adapting that to the fords hitch.
