2210 drive pulleys

Recommended Posts

3 spd 2210, can I replace the drive pulley at the BGB with something smaller? I know you can put an oversized pulley at the transmission end. I want to go slower yet. Can I put an undersized pulley at the BGB end? What's there looks pretty complex, is there a simpler alternative? I'm willing to do some changes as long as they can be undone (make a pulley assy, for example), this whole tractor is hacked already. Has anyone done this? Crazy idea?

There's nothing to prevent it, but you'd have to come up with your own belt guides if you use a smaller BGB pulley. The one on there now wouldn't work with a smaller pulley. Have you tried a 10" transmission pulley? I can't imagine wanting to go slower than that... you can crawl and keep up with the tractor in 1st gear, running a 10" pulley.

umm well, I already have a 10" pulley, and I do want to go slower, for rototilling. I'm thinking the 10" doesn't get me down as slow as 1st gear with a hi-lo, does it? a fast crawl is too fast for what I want to accomplish The tiller doesn't really get churning until full throttle and by then I'm moving a bit too fast (I think) for quality tilling. So I ride the clutch. is that crazy?

I'm not sure if it's as slow as Low-Low on a High-Low setup. I was running the 10" on a 2012 with loader. I never tilled with it. But it seemed VERY slow. I have tilled with a High-Low, a variable speed, and a Sundstrand Hydro. The hydro is the ONLY one that I don't occasionally have to ride the clutch on when tilling...
