Sears Tow behind tiller

Recommended Posts

You have an independent power source to run tiller. You then can 'till at virtually any speed, which is a plus unless you alredy have a hydro. 8 HP would seem to be enough power

I had one of those. It was an 8hp with 42" tiller. Very heavy and well built. The Briggs is an easy rebuild. Sears.com still carries the tines for it. If it has the manual with it, it will have all the part numbers (except for the motor). I sold mine about a year ago because I began using a tiller / Powermax combination. You will have to alter your lift setup (whether 3-point or sleeve) to accomidate the slanted Sears 3-point set.

The older style were 3 point and I think the newer ones were sleeve hitch. Here are some pics. New style

Older 3 point style

The ones pictured had tecumsehs. Pretty pricey new but I don't know what a used one is worth. Good luck.

I have one of those. Had it mounted on the 725 until I scored my Simplicity Model W tiller which mounted right on the tractor. aIt worked ok, turned a little fast and the tines don't have the design of the Simplicity and Troybuilt tines, Bolo tines I think they are called, which work better then any others I've ever used. Haveing its own engine was a plus/minus deal, the plus being it was easy to vary the ground speed like Bob pointed out, the minus being having another engine to deal with and if I recall right the clutch was a pain in the.......But hey, it beats no tiller.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
