Is anyone seeing or finding roto tillers that work with an 1855A?  I'm not having any luck, found one last year the guy wanted quite a bit for it.  What's a good price?  Anyone have one for sale?

 

How about those pull behind tillers with engines, like the DR company?  Are they good or more of a fight to use?  Really would like to find something this winter.

 

Are there any Cat 0 3-point PTO brands currently being produced that can fit, or easily be made to work with the Snapper?

I use the Massey Ferguson 4850 with mine They are hard to find but they do come up for sale now and then just keep an eye on here and watch ebay and search onecraigs and sooner or later you will find one There is also the 4250 that is available I think its only 42 inch I have only seen pictures of them Prices run anywhere from 200-1200 depending on condition and how desperate the seller and buyer are I got lucky with mine I only gave 250 for the tractor and tiller combo but have put 3 times that into them

I think some JD's used a 2000 rpm rear tiller and I'm thinking another big manufacturer did too, but can't remember.

They are still kind of hard to find and also usually big $$$$$

I wonder what that would cost in shipping to 58251?  Sure would like to find one close enough to drive/pick-up.

FrozeninTime you need to get ahold of Fastenal I had them ship me a snowblower from Enafziger to Iowa and it only cost me $125 which is really cheap considering ups and fedex were both well over 500

I will have to stop by something when I'm in town and they are open.  I would need to know where he would be shipping from?

 

EN, PM me a price and pictures of it from different angles.  Is it ready to use, everything works and is there?  What would be the shipping weight and dimensions, I assume I would need this for an estimate?

In the manuals section Olcowhand posted a manual  titled Original MF Sales Price Sheets and Options which shows the MF 4250 tiller at a weight of 230 lbs it is on page 13 of the manuals I found this very interesting because it also shows the 1855 less the mower at 944 lbs I like that download Im guessing the Snapper 4250 is real close in weight
