    Do you want to share the price you paid with us? No worries if you don't want to, just curious as always.
    Yes! I have to remove the drawbar or the tiller PTO shaft will "toch down" on it when it's run deep.
    It bears witness marks - that's the only way I knew that it had happened.
    That's the problem with trouble.

    Thanks! Yes, the pto shaft is just fine. All that checked out just perfect. Sure, i'll share the price. I gave $1500 for it. It saved me $500 (including tax) over buying a new one.

    Only thing i found 'wrong' with it is the chain is broken for the tailgate. It's somehow missing a link. Im gonna go to the hardware store today and get a heavier chain for it and that'll be taken care of.

    Your tractor doesn't have a swinging drawbar? Pto shafts will hit the drawbar on my Massey IF it's in the center of the tractor. I just keep the drawbar to to right side under the rear end and leave it there. All tractors are different though..

    Thanks Don! I've been lookin for a while on craigslist and just couldnt ever find a used 6' tiller. I feel like i got really lucky on finding it. He wanted a lot more for it but i wasnt giving anymore than what i offered. Otherwise, i would have bought a new one.

    Well with the new one the chain would be covered by warranty!

    Great deal for the both of you really....

    Gonna be using the tiller a lot this coming Saturday. Wanna go ahead and get it ready to go. How many pumps of grease should i put in the fitting for the tube that the tines attach to? Is it a sealed bearing or no?
    Also, What weight oil goes in both gear boxes?

    Thanks
