b110 and tiller question

Recommended Posts

Are you meaning low speed pully or low range kit? I would say if your using it in sod it would help! We run ours with out low speed kit or big pulley in plowed ground and does fine. And in sod you have to make a few more passes!

If I understand the question, it depends on which type/model tiller you're using.

If you are using a 32" round top tiller, you must use the "mule-drive pulley" setup to get a tiller clutch engagement, and to slow them down enough. If using the later, 36" flat-top tiller, you do not need the mule-drive, but you do need a set of back-side idler pulleys to bring the belt out from under the tractor and up to the tiller drive...

The round-top tillers were "age-appropriate" for the B-1 through B-12s. The flat-top tillers were introduced later, and "age-appropriate" for the B-100/200 series... the first flat-top ones had an engagement lever on the tiller, while the later ones (for cone-clutch PTOs) did not...

The first flat top ones were actually still a 32" that required the older PTO setup. The 36" introduced the engagement on the tiller itself, and the use of the idler set on the tractor.

Basically, any 32" tiller will require the old mule...anything larger than that will require the double-idler type.
