Just bought a DGT 1700 in great shape for $900.  Can't seem to find an owners manual on here. Also wondering if I can swap the rear on this for the one on a junk yard ht18 so I can use my tiller on the DGT .

Both the parts manual and service manual are under duratrac /Troy Bilt GTX under the manuals section. No you cannot swap the rear from a HT18. The engine on the duratrac is in backwards (pto side to front) and would spin the hydro in wrong direction plus spin your tiller backwards. Plus all the mounting areas are different where the frame bolts to housing.
