    Default Non 3pt tiller to 3pt mount conversion

    Posted my lucky encounter with a kubota and iseki tiller in the iseki forum but would like to start a thread here on the conversion of a non 3pt mounted tiller (2pt???) to 3pt mount.

    The non 3pt tillers can be found here for much less as almost every grey import is delivered to these dealers with the tillers still attached.
    So they actually have a graveyard of old tillers nobody wants... except me, today.




    These 2 followed me home. (50$ for the kubota and 100$ for the Iseki )

    I first am converting the kubota. (model 1100, 27 blades) It had a shot bearing which really is like a routine service item on these things. Now for the 3pt:

    First: cut off the original mounts


    second: make a connection frame for the lower arms



    Just remember not to weld all connections as that will prevent you servicing the main gearbox as you cannot remove the driveshaft tubes. (so i used the 3 bolt pattern in the internal reinforcement to connect and weld the other end of the frame onto the tube/shaft.


    More to follow when i finish tomorrow.

    This is really a head over heals jump-on project as i have to till a garden tomorrow afternoon. SO not to much time to think things over, lets hope things work out. Also have to resort to the materials which i have laying around so it can for sure be done more nicely.

    Hope it can help someone.


    (the Iseki tiller will be converted to a flail mower somewhere in the near future, i'll post that in another thread)

    Did it work? Need pictures.

    Would love a tiller, but looking at $1500 not $50!

    Hard to believe you can buy a complete tiller for $50.00, unless your in a poverty stricken area where the yearly wage is $100.00. Most are made to be around for many years with a ton of servicable parts.

    Just back from 5 hours of continous tilling....

    This 50$ tiller did not mis a beat.

    Here is how she looks after my 3pt convertion rush









    Cannot comment on anything. From first attempt working and did not find any problems with my setup.
    We were tilling virgin ground, AG prepared ground, some vineyard, even and hilly patches (axial and crossaxial) and all worked perfectly well





    Satisfied with the investment.

    Sounds like it did the trick for you, good job! Can you post a pic from the back and maybe from the side. It would be nice to see how you fab'ed the top bracket for the center link. Also, if 3pt tillers are scarce (or very expensive) in your part of the world, it sounds like you could make some money by converting those $50 tillers over to 3pt hitch attachments. Something to think about anyway......

    Hard to describe, but two-point tillers attach directly to the rod your lower three point arms pivot on (there are no lower arms on a two point system). Then, the two linkage rods that lift your lower arms (on a three point) connect directly to the tiller to raise and lower it. When raising a two point tiller, it rotates upward on that rod down by the drawbar........ instead of the whole tiller raising level to the ground like on a three point hitch. The PTO shaft on a two point tiller is only about six inches long.

    Not a good picture...... but maybe this will help visualize?
