Re: Putting a non Deere 3PH tiller on an x700 series
I am just about ready to pull the trigger on the x728. Will my 4' King Kutter tiller fit on the 3PH on the x728 ok? I will probably have to cut down the drive shaft, but any other issues? My salesman thought
it would be ok, but said he has to order different brackets (I think that's what he said) for the 647 tiller when it goes on an x700 series.
I got a 4' Farm King(Buhler) tiller on the back of my x485. The only modification I had to do was to cut the PTO shaft in length. Most PTO attachments come in a generic length and you have to cut/lengthen to fit your application.
BTW, my Farm King tips the scale @ 435lbs. I got about 200lbs on the front of my x485 to off-set the added rear weight. I think vs a 23xx series tractor, the added lift height & additional weight of the 23xx series is a very positive thing. I sometimes wish I had a little more lift on my X485.
