Tiller question.

Recommended Posts

After a hard year of tilling, I have broke two 32" heavy duty tillers on the back of my 101 Landlord. I have tore both of them apart. I have noticed a difference between the two tine shaft drive sprocket. One sprocket is keyed to the tine shaft and the other is welded to the tine shaft. Both look like they are factory My question is.. was there a change in design of the shaft and if so which is the newer design? There were no model numbers on the tillers and the parts breakdown found in the parts and manual section, shows it as being sold as one piece. To me it seems that the welded would be the best but leaves you limited if you wear out he sprocket. The keyed unit would be nice but you take the chance of the set screws working loose, which is what happened on one of the tillers and it wore both sprokets beyond use. Thanks for your help and input.

if you notice in this link there is 2 types of 32" tillers if the ones you are talking about have the round guard. http://www.simpletractors.com/parts/tiller/rotary_tillers.htm

The only tiller I find with a keyed on gear is the very first 32" tiller on the 700 and 725. The 105084 shaft and (believe it or not) the R-A22 sprocket keyed onto it. Because of the chucking caused by tilling, Kamluckin changed the design for the 9 Hp Landlord. If you have a newer tiller with a two piece tine shaft, someone may have rebuilt it with older, leftover parts. Paul

Thanks to both Toad270 and Paul, Toad, both tillers do not have the round guard. I didn't look at the parts breakdown for round guard tiller and it appears that I should have. Paul, you may have hit the nail on the head, I am second owner of both tillers, so it looks like someone rebuilt the tiller with some left over parts. I ordered parts including bearings and sprocket for the two piece shaft. I think I will install the sprocket and weld it to the shaft to make sure I don't have the same problem again. thanks for you help.
