Rototiller, will it work

Recommended Posts

The tiller is basically the same except for possible hitch mounting issues. If the tiller was made for an A/C Homelite, the upper mounted "rod" might be rectangular for the special Homelite rear lift. You would have to cut the rectangular rod off and weld a round one on (1 1/8" I think) for the standard Simplicity rear lift. The other issue would be the spacing of the arms on the lower part of the hitch which can be a different dimension; the arms can be bent to fit (not the best fit) or rewelded to proper spacing. Another minor differenc is I believe all the Homelite tillers have the built in clutch which isn't required since your tractor has the cone clutch - just run with the tiller clutch always engaged.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
