    Looks like it came over from Japan in the same container as the tractor. May be a Japanese only make.

    I am pretty sure that is a Yanmar 1200 series tiller. I have a rs1201 that I converted to a 3 point hitch a couple of years ago. typically a 2 point hook up, the rear wheels control the depth. It can also be a pain converting the short PTO shaft to the right spline input. I posted a video highlighting some of the things I did.

    You can get some parts like tines and some seals from a couple of different places:
    Yanmar Tractor Parts - Shop Online

    Home / News - Fredricks Equipment

    Little Miami Trading Company - Compact Tractors

    Mine is an absolute workhorse! aside from adapting it to 3 point, I've only changed the gear oil and tightened the tine bolts. Ideally, a new set of tines would be appropriate but, currently it still beats the soil into submission!

    Hi, I was watching your video. Those tines, from what I could see look exactly like Japanese "wasteland" tines. If so, they are spinning backwards. If you look and they have a chisel style point and are straight not offset they are. I believe that tiller may have been mated to a ccw rotation tractor. I suppose you can just turn the blades around. I have a set on one of mine, they work great in hard ground lots of rocks. It is hard to tell in the video.
