Ok, did a bit of driving today to pick up my last purchase. Found this 1973 112 and 31 Tiller for a very good price.

I am looking for a user and service manual for the 31 Tiller so that I can figure out how it attaches to the tractor. Haven't looked on the forum manuals section yet.

I was researching and somebody mentioned "mule drive" to be used in conjunction with the tiller and that the "mule drive" was important to have.

This is my last purchase for awhile, as I have enough projects to keep me busy for awhile. My wife thinks I have gone off the deep end with my new found interest in garden tractors. Fortunately I have found really good prices and I imagine these things will only appreciate over time.

Thats a good looking electric lift 112, and that tiller should do you a good job. Nice find !!

Thanks Brian, I am trying to determine the relative value of the tiller.

The tiller also came with this part

I guess this is what they call the "Mule Drive". Now I need to figure out how this connects.

Nice set. You'll love having a tiller.

BTW, you wife isn't the only one who thinks their hubby has taken leave of his sanity... Just ask my wife.

Maybe we should look into doing some sort of support group for our spouses. I wonder if GardenTractorWidows.com is taken?

deere tiller.jpg This should give you your answer. Don't forget the belt that goes from the mule to the tiller needs a half turn.
