6216 tiller

Recommended Posts

My brother in PA recently picked up a 6216 varidrive with tiller, 42" plow, and mower deck. He's been asking me questions about the tiller, but I am not familiar with the setup for the 30" tiller. Tried the search function in many different combinations but it keeps timing out on me. The problem is the tiller drive. He claims it runs off the transmission input pulley, so it stops when he depresses the tractor clutch, and the speed varies with his variable speed lever. Makes sense to me if it's hooked up in that manner, but it doesn't seem right to me. I would think there should be a "live" PTO that runs independantly of the transmission input. Is this how the tillers are supposed to operate on this tractor, or has he got it hooked up wrong? I also looked up owner's manuals for the 30" tillers, and it shows the belt hooked to a pulley labled "PTO". This appears to be the transmission input pulley in the diagram, but doesn't state whether or not it actually is.

Pat On page 4 of the 30" Tiller MFG# 1690393 manual in the right hand column under Starting and Stopping, It states: The tiller will also stop when the tractor clutch is disengaged. It also has instructions on Engine and Ground speeds.

Thanks, Maynard. I didn't look at that part of the manual. Guess I was concentrating too much on the section about attaching the tiller to the tractor to see if I could make sense of it.

      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
