Have an older Ariens Tiller, model 831005, and I am finally getting ready to use this thing. I received this tiller in a package with other implements and an older s-16 new holland tractor. The tiller is tagged ariens and has the model number 831005, and this was being used on the s-16.
I would like to use this on my GT18, but I'm not 100% these GT12-16 implements all work with the bigger GT17-20 siblings?
I was told the 831006 tiller works, but it utilizes the same mounting frame and pulley that the 831005 uses. It looks like the pins line up with the tiller mounting frame, but I'm not sure about the top bracket above the PTO, which secures the tiller.
Is anyone using this model tiller on a GT17 through GT20? It has a manual tensioner lever, but that doesn't interfere or prevent usage with the electric PTO equipped models. This thing is rock solid and well maintained so I would hate to look for something else which usually winds up being a rusty piece of garbage someone let sit outside.
All help appreciated, pics even more.
