Trying to find a tiller for my homelite
T-10. Still new to GTs but from what I've read simplicity's will fit, just not sure which ones or what to look for.

Go to the simple tractors site. On there they will have a section where you can see what tillers by model number that will work on your Homelite. It will also tell you what other attachments you need. You will need a rear lift for your tractor. Some of the older Homelite rear lifts had a rectangle bar. The simplicity and Allis Chalmers have a round bar that fits the rear lift. My Homelite has a Simplicity tiller and I have to offset it about a 1/2 " to one side to make it fit. I can't get pics to upload or I would post some for you. Good luck .                                                                                                                                              Roger

Make sure you have or get the rest of the belt routing.
I remember a Simolicity guy saying that it's important to make sure you have the pullies for the same style as as your tiller.
Seems there were a couple of different styles.

I got a few of the pictures to load. Can't figure out why some will load and some will not. These are of the Simplicity tiller I got with the mule drive. I had to add the pulley to the tractor and the belt guides, which I made. Good luck.                                                  Roger

Perfect thanks for all the pictures fellas. Got a good idea what to look for now. Where would the belt guides be located. I know there will need to be one for the pulley comin off the tractor. Are there any more.

On the left side of the tractor under the seat there is the shaft for the pulley for the rear attachments. Just above and below there are holes for bolts for the belt guides. I made mine as they are not available anymore. Now that being said, I believe that you could look around at different tractor makes and see what they have for belt guides and make them work. I just happened to have some rod and a Oxy, aceteline torch to heat and bend the way I needed in a vise. Those are the onlt two i know of in this area.

This is the only one I can get to post right now. not the best but you can see where they are.

You have to have both of them and they need to be long enough to go past the belt by about a 1/2". They need to be within a 1/2" of the belt also. Good luck.
