    Default Bolens/Iseki rototiller help needed

    I have a Bolens made by Iseki TX 1504 (G154) that I bought a rototiller for. It's not a three point cat 1 type hitch typ of tiller. According to the manuals, this is the same type as what is sold by the company when new. Unfortunately, I don't have a manual that tells how to mount the tiller onto the tractor. Can anyone tell me how the two go to gether?
    Mucho thanks in advance!

    Picture of the tiller would help. I assume you bought a grey market 2 point tiller. If so, you need the mounting bracket that bolts to the back of the tractor. I have one that should fit your tractor, but i don't know if it will fit your tiller without more info.

    Thank you Lens! When I posted the post, I didn't know what a two point hitch was. I've been searching around for more information when I came across some information in the manual. Seems the factory sells a two point tiller for this tractor. Of course, the manual doesn't show a clear picture of how the tiller mounts, nor does it give instructions.

    As soon as I get the time, I'll post pictures of the PTO area of the tractor and the tiller. The tiller was made by Mistsubitsi (sp?) The person who soldit to me said he didn't need the tiller because he bought his tractor for snow removal.

    Again, mucho thanks!

    I believe that your machine is similar to my TS1910/G192. Do you have the U shaped bracket bolted to the rear of your transmission case? see attachment.
    If it's the same as my tiller setup, the tiller should slide inside this bracket and attach with 2 of 19mm(3/4) pins. The 2x mounting holes on the transmission case bracket on mine are double thickness for additional strenght and 160mm (6" approx) apart.

    This is a picture of my tiller showing one mounting pin in place and I have noted the lifting arms mounting pin locations.
    The PTO drive shaft is shown just for good measure it's 280mm long.
    Hope this helps. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    The Iseki mounting bracket will probably not work on a Mitsubishi tiller. The 2 point system is not standardized. You may be better off converting the tiller to a 3 point tiller.

    You just need to find an sturdy place on the tiller to mount the hitch pins. Attached is a picture of a grey market tiller that shows how I extended the hitch pin brackets. Maybe it will give you some ideas.

    That wheel adjusts the height of a set of gauge wheels on the back of the tiller. Some of the grey market tillers from Japan come with the wheels, but often they are missing.
