Tiller Tines

Recommended Posts

OkieGT

I'm looking for some tiller tines for my white A/C tiller on the back of my 416, the tines I have are worn and dull, looks like someone has sharpened them and taken off quite a bit of material, look like knives, not tines. I thought someone on the forum had some at one time, wanted to check here first. Thanks

If you search there is a manufacturer that makes the same ones I thought. May be the 32... But if you can find the tiller used, its cheaper than buying the tines. Get ready for sticker shock!

id="quote">I dont think I want to spend good money to buy a used tiller knowing that for 300-500 I'd be getting "used" tines. I'm not really concerned with cost, I want new tines. My wife is always concerned with cost and everything she buys is junk. Every time I'm tempted to consider cost as a factor I just look at her recent purchases. However I would consider buy a tiller missing a few parts as a "parts" tiller, many tillers this age have substantial wear on the tines, those that don't are "keepers" or are 500.00, but it is a thought and idea, if a good tiller with nice tines came along, I would definitely have to consider it.

My understanding, is that some f the old Roto-cul tillers had the same setup. If this is true, sometimes, they can be found pretty reasonable, and some actually haven't had much use.

The tines for the 32" tillers are common and are available aftermarket. I believe the tines for the 36" tillers are Simplicity specific.

id="quote">Thanks Chris, That's what I've found out, about 12-14 dollars each times 16 tines, 195-225 bucks, but it is a one time purchase.

I more than likely have the correct set for 36" tillers that I can part with. I don`t have any junk, I scrap that. The roticul and 32" tillers use the same tines. As Chris said the 36" are different.

Or, you can do like I did on a set of old Merry Tiller tines. Weld hard surfacing on what is left. Build them up and sharpen. The tiller is about 50 years old, original hard surfaced tines. I have a bit newer one now, but the one I gave to my Dad which somewhere else in the family since he passed away, probably still has the hard surfaced tines. Mine will be a candidate over the winter
