    Default Tiller for Front Mount Tractor

    A few months ago I enquired about a tiller for my kubota F2400. I was told that with the exception of Steiner, there was no such thing. So I decided I would try to change that. I bought an old Kubota K420 tiller that seemed to be in quite good shape although it didn't look all that great.

    This is a side view mounted on the tractor. Some of the modifications I made where the addition of depth runners, parking stands and a hydraulic cylinder to control the angle of the dust flap. Now I need to fine a place to try it out.

    What about the direction of rotation? Is the direction the same as it was before modification?

    Good question, Jerry. Actually there were two aspects of the drive train that had to be dealt with, direction and speed of rotation. The tiller was designed for 540 rpm ccw rotation. The pto on the tractor is cw roatation at 1100 rpm in low range. I found a 2:1 reversing gear box which I installed between the tiller gear box and the drive shaft. The attached picture is with the shield between the tiller gear box and the reducing gear box removed.
