I'm unfamiliar with that model #. Is it a walk behind or a model for a GT?

Looks like a RF tiller and the quote is from the thread above

 

 

 

The tiller you have (brass tagged, E700) was originally made for the round fender models. The bracket in the upper left of your second picture is what makes it adaptable to a SF model. You will not need that to put it on your rf, but you still need to have a rear lift kit installed on your round fender model.

Can anyone please give me a ball park figure on what a EO700 tiller is worth.

 

First question I would have is, is the tiller painted yellow or white? That code was used only for identifying the Patio white tillers. My second question would be, is the deer decal a four legged deer or a two legged deer? Sounds anal, but the difference could change your pricing structure considerably. If your tiller is indeed white, then the asking price could be slightly higher than that of a yellow painted tiller. If the decal is a four legged deer instead of a two legged deer, then again your asking price could be slightly higher.

 

The model of your tiller is indeed a 31 tiller, however there is no difference between a 30 tiller and a 31 tiller, as they both use the same size tines and parts. The only difference between the two are the adapter bracket needed for mounting the tiller to a flat fender tractor. Since the intermediate drives are different between the flat fender and round fender tractors, a second belt was required for flat fender mid mount intermediate drives, compared to the single belt for front mount intermediate on the round fender tractors. Model 31 tillers were basically left over inventory of Model 30 tillers. In 1968 when the flat fender tractors were introduced, John Deere needed to release a tiller attachment for these new tractor models, so instead of designing a whole new tiller, they decided it was more economical to develop an adapter to make the Model 30 tillers work for the flat fender tractors. They found a solution to use up all of the old inventory, just by changing the model number from 30 to 31, and reintroducing them with the new tractor series line up.  

 

The new 1968 series tractors were longer than that of the round fenders, so in order to use the same belt of the round fenders, Deere moved the intermediate drive back to a mid mount mounting on the flat fenders, which worked out to be the same distance of the adapter bracket needed to mount the old tiller model to the new series tractors.  This is why you can mount a standard 30 tiller to a flat fender, and a 31 tiller to a round fender. 

 

Model 30 tillers were always painted yellow and had a green four legged deer. The 1968 model 31 tillers were painted yellow and had the green four legged deer decals as well, however in 1968 some 31 tillers were painted dogwood white and had a black four legged deer decal. In 1969, the dogwood white tillers had the decal changed to a black and silver two legged deer, and the yellow tillers remained unchanged. In 1970 all yellow tillers had the decal changed to a black and silver two legged deer.

 

Here are the codes used for identifying the different tractor mounted tillers:

 

Model 30 = E0030 (yellow) - Round Fender Tractors

Model 31 = E0701 (yellow)  - Flat Fender 110's and 112's

Model 31 = E0700 (white)  - Patio Series 110's and 112's

Model 33 = E0621 (yellow)  - Flat Fender 120's and 140's

Model 33 = E0620 (white)  - Patio Series 120's and 140's

 

Just a bit of information that some guys might not know about, the Model 30 tiller was co-engineered and designed between John Deere and Haban. 

 

As for an asking price, that is entirely up to you and what you need out of it. I won't answer that question, as I'm the type of collector who doesn't sell pieces for the going rate. I can understand wanting to make some money, but I'm not the type who tries to get as much as he possibly can either. I realize these old tillers are selling for $400-$500 on ebay, but as a buyer who isn't into reselling, these tillers aren't worth more than $150.00. A good example are the 80 Dump Carts. You used to be able to buy them for $150.00, but because everyone wants them now, you can barely touch one for less than $400.00.

 

My advice would be, if you spent $50.00 for it, add $25-$50 on it, and ask $100.00 for it. You got your money back and made a little, so you should be happy. Good Luck!

well, I can say it is white. I can see it under the dirt and dust on it. I seem to not be able to get pictures off my phone so I have to take them all over. I will go look and see about the 2 or 4 legs. and get some more pictures. I think I have some other JD parts also.
