MH81, if you look at Ponchos pic of the tiller hooked to the tractor, I plan to keep the 90 degree gear box in the same relative position, just turned so the output would be down. Then a pulley is put at the bottom of the shaft to the mower pulley. This would all move up and down as the tiller does, mower deck and all. The belt drive to the mower would help if something solid was hit. Hard to explain.

Poncho, just noticed what you put at the bottom of the pics. Looking down on the the shaft, yes CCW. OOPs, deck goes wrong way. Well, blew that out of the program.

P.S. Back to simple.

Since this is just in the planning stages , I always wanted a deck wide enough or offset enough to go under my spruce trees . Also I now have to drive on top of the landscape edging so it would be helpful there too.

A pull behind can be very useful. You could make an angled hitch so it is offset from the tractor. I'll keep plugging away at this, but may have to go with Poncho's power option. Time to make a run to Lowes for some needed goodies. I'll be back.

You could always route your belt to use the backside of the belt to go in the opposite direction.....just make sure it has lots of wraparound and stays tight enough.

Under trees is where my front mount is nice....just drive right in there.

This requires more thought. But that doesn't mean you guys need to stop with the suggestions. Keep them coming. We'll get this figured out.

Got a parts mower deck yesterday from a Cub. I now have material to repair this deck. It may just end up back under the tractor. Still need to shop at a boat store for some rollers. I need to pull the front deck hanger off the tractor as it is very worn where the deck has been rubbing on the bar. Will have to get some pics going.

Just been too darn hot and I have been tied to a remodel job. Should start paint on it this week, so I may have some time to play with this before the snow flies. Thanks for stopping in, I had about forgotten about this.
