Tiller capable ?

Will a tiller mount on this tractor ? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=160151381106&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=006 I asked the owner, he says yes. To double check, I went to the Simple Tractors.com web site, and the site says that it is not capable of using rear-mounted attachments (no rear PTO). Who is correct ?

I'm not sure. But I'd get the tractor for that price first and worry about the tiller later. There's guys on this site though that could put a tiller on a toaster if they wanted. So I'd guess yes!^

there isn't a rear PTO shaft in the 3 speed trans. You would have to use a later style 3 speed trans.

This model (Broadmoor 707) has a transmission with 2 forward speeds. This tranny does not have the pto shaft needed to power a tiller. Later models of this tractor (such as Broadmoor 728) had 3 forward speeds, and this updated tranny had a pto shaft for driving a tiller. Tom

Thanks guys, for the help. Now, tom...would the tranny for the 728 work in this tractor, if I was able to locate one ? And if I can locate one, is it a very involved process to swap the trannys out ?

Karl - You are right on track! The 3 speed tranny is a simple drop-in replacement! Even a novice could do this replacement in an hour or 2. All you have to do is find a good one nearby to you, then you can make the change and use a tiller on it. There are plenty of club memebers who sell parts out in your area .... just put an ad in the parts wanted classified section. Tom

tiller on a toaster... I wonder if anyone is working on that now? but really, would have to be something that moves, yes?

Karl: If I remember right I have a 3-speed trans that should work in this. Let me know if you want to pursue it. Good luck, Dave
