This is the gearbox I got with my last Massey tiller, it looks identical to my other gearbox for my other tiller except for the shaft coming out to the front.
Anybody seen one like this before or know why it is like this?
:help:

I found this pretty funny.
I saw your box last night and I was thinking what the heck is that for? Shaft driven snowblower???!?
I got a tiller off of ebay and the guy delivered it today
It has the same funky gearbox. So if anybody knows that would make two people.
My 69 parts book shows it as having shafts on both sides, unlike most, but IDK
thanks

I don't know front mounted mower deck or maybe front flail mower??? There must be a reason why.
I never seen any pic of a sickle mower mounted on a 10 or 12, neat.

I guess these gear boxes mount midship powered from the mule drive then shaft drive the tiller, sickle, etc. I think I have the manuals for these somewhere

When I had my MF 10 with the tiller it had the same gear box with the shaft comming out.It was a pain to mount it.The guy I bought it from had it mounted on the tractor and to me it was a big pita to put it on and take it off.You actually had to take the spring loaded drive pulley off the underside of the tractor and mount the gear box in it's place,then run a short belt to the pulley on the motor,and of course the foot control was still used to activate the drive belt.To me it was a poor design.I ended up cutting all the brackets etc;off the top of the gear box,and welded a short square piece of tubing onto the top of the gear box then welded another bigger piece of sq.tubing onto the tractors frame so that it worked like a sleeve hitch.Of course it has to be in the right spot welded onto the gear box in order to keep the belt lined up.I then used a pin to hold them together and a short belt to the jack shaft that drives the mower.Then I had to cut the yoke off the end of the shaft and and cut the shaft shorter and re weld the yoke back on.After that it was all quick attach without having to remove that jackshaft under the tractor etc: it was a very fast and very simple procedure to mount and remove the gear box after that.Don't have any pictures of that sorry I know pics would have made the explanation way better.Larry

small world.
i just spoke to a guy who i had wrote to two weeks ago for a mf12H. well he finally called me back.
he has a couple 10s and 12s. all early with starter gens. a couple or all have the alum dash and nose. one has the suburban wheels and tires.
but he says some of those front 540 ptos were driven off these tiller boxes FYI
he also says he has a 10 hydro with the original sales invoice?!?!?

I'd follow though on those tractors you never know.

Interesting about those gearboxes.
