    Default Deere 550 tiller to I-match bracket

    I wanted to make my 550 tiller work with my new I-match and this is what I come up with. The brackets were cut on the Ironworker at welding school, and the bushings are regular Category 1 to 2 adaptors from the dealer. I did turn them down for length on an ancient lathe at my buddies shop.

    Here it is mounted to the tiller. No permanent mods to the tiller were neccessary.

    A good modification and design.
    The two lower bushings should be sized for cat III to fit the iMatch, at least the one I have is that way. The top connection is cat II. Don't ask me why they do it that way, but they do.
    Thanks for posting with the detailed pics.
