Default garden tractors with cat-0 3 point hitches

This topic came up not too long ago, and I can't find the thread. No one could name a modern implementation of the category 0 3 point hitch.

It looks like the Kubota G series has one as an option, along with a rear PTO. Also a shaft drive 3PH mounted tiller.

Can any of you Kubota gurus tell me if the rear PTO on the G series is 540 RPM or 2,000 RPM? I could not find that level of detail on their website.

Thanks,

I'm no guru but perhaps I can help. I also went through their site and couldn't find any info about a rear PTO for that model. They do mention that the mid-PTO spins at 2576 RPM's, which is fine for mowers and blowers but the rear mounted implements have to spin much slower. The BX mid-PTO runs up to 2500 but the rear only goes to 540. I would imagine the G series is similar.

You can still get Cat o implements thru Tractor dealer's Brinly is still manufactring them to be sold thru dealers only right now.
Manufacturers that still have Cat 0 3point hitch
Cub Cadet 3000 series has a Cat 0
Ingersoll as mentioned above
Kubota
John Deere a Cat 0 3point is still avaliable for the X465 thru X749 Though most people do buy it with the Limited Cat 1 3point hitch. The Kubota G series has a 540rpm Rear PTO for the tiller.
I'm guessing you looking for a 2000RPM tiller for your 318. If that the case the Best tiller to look for for your 318 is a Used Hydraulic tiller for it Because it could use either the Front or Rear PTO. That would be a 30inch Hydraulic tiller. I know from time to time guy advertise them for sale over hear http://www.weekendfreedommachines.co...cus/discus.cgi

Kubota no longer makes the G model. Since it was so close in price to the small BX, the 1860, its demise is understandable.

No ground engaging capability on the GR models. It isn't strong enough in key ways for that, although it remains a flagship lawnmower.

Thanks,
I picked up a 2000 RPM Befco tiller for the 318. Had no idea Befco made one.

The question actually arose from a couple of conversations. Someone was asking the practicality of dropping the money on a cat 0, then another question regarding the 2000 RPM PTO.

It seems to me that the limited cat 1 and cat 1 have more or less taken the place of the cat 0. Ingersoll's attachments are all pretty much Ingy specific being hydraulic, but I would suspect Kubota will continue to carry their cat 0 implements for at least a couple of years.

I know plenty of folks make non-driven cat 0 attachments yet. I wonder if Frontier offers anything for the cat-0 still?

That Tuff-bilt is an interesting rig, but at the price, I think the JD x700 and Ingersoll are not exactly worried.

Doing a bit of research it looks like the g series tractors have a 2000 rpm rear pto, it looks like they use the front shaft to run a pulley system to run the rear pto

Wow, Thanks for that answer. I'd written it off as a no on the PTO.

It was a add on option, and judging by how hard it is to find a tiller which was the only option that kubota offered I figure its even rarer to find a tractor that actually has the rear pto setup

I'm torn between trying to find a 3 pt hitch and making a sleeve hitch for my tractor

Just realized this thread was over 2 years old, glad you got an answer

Its working used it last year on an Ariens GT to cultivate between rows."How tiller will Travel".And I'm running it on a 3250 PTO but throttle back and only running it about 2" deep to cultivate and its offset so it gets right up against the rows once I make a pass with the disc hiller.

The Tuff-Bilt tractor is built to cultivate one row at a time and really has no equal now as its built for excellent vision and clearance of the crop being cultivated which no garden tractor can come to matching.I have a Hines thats very similar and they're pretty decent mowing tractors also.

Default Re: garden tractors with cat-0 3 point hitches

what might some good brands be that make a decent budget box scraper for a cat 0 3pt on a cub cadet?

I think the brinly/crafstman (sleeve hitch) box blade I was looking at might be a bit “lightweight“ for the use I was hoping to put one through...
