I have a opportunity to pick up a model 35a tiller.  Can my 318 handle it ok?  Or is it too big for it?

35 a Tiller is for the 400 tractors it uses an odd pto speed and drive shaft .As for the weight of the tiller the 318 will handle it with some weight up front

Isn't the pto for a 318 the same as used on a 400?

The 400 uses a odd rear output pto speed of 880 rpm if I remember correctly. I'm not sure if you can change the gearing or not. I do know that the 318 shares the same pto setup as the 420 and 430 of 2000rpm.

I can get the the rpm of these tiller at FT on my 400 if you would like.

Good luck

For $1,500, you should be able to find a hydraulic tiller for the 318.

I did!  I made my usual search of craigs a week ago and lo and behold...there was a john deere 30 inch hydraulic tiller  for sale. I  went to have a look at it, and bought it.  It had the extension already bolted on it.  The guy would not part with the lift brackets.  I have a 3-point hitch on the 318, so I can use that and make my own lower brackets for it.
