Default hydraulic tiller for a 425 JD

I have a JD 425 that has no rear PTO.....I found a Hydro tiller that the guy says it came off of a 425, 445 ect..... what powers the hydraulic for this tiller........and what do I need to make the 3 point hitch go up and down? I have the snow blower and mower for it and I just made a blade that bolts on the the quick hitch that I made for the blower but this tiller would be a great option for work......please give me all the info you can on how this tiller works on a 425 and how the 3 point hitch works!

I don't have one of these but I gather that to get the hydraulic flow necessary, there's a pump that goes with the tiller. Typically there's one of two setups for this sort of thing: either the pump runs off the rear PTO, or you have a belly mount pump that mounts where the mower deck would be and runs off that PTO. It sounds like maybe you didn't get the whole setup? Maybe someone with a 425/445 series garden tractor will give you a better answer. Maybe try the garden tractor forum for better luck.

I saw one at a friends house the other day- he is converting it to hook to a cat 1 3ph. His has a hydraulic pump that runs off of the rear pto.

Moved to the proper forum where hopefully you will get more input.

But remember, it's a holiday weekend here in the US where Many members are from. Any many aren't online.

Deere hydraulic tillers run off a pump that is driven by the mid-pto. The 42inch hydraulic tiller for the 425, 445, 455, run off a pump which is shaft driven and runs off from the mid 2000 RPM PTO.

Well, if your buying a Deere 425 thru 455 and don't want to put a 540 rpm rear pto on, you can still till because you use the mid pto. Still need the 3 point hitch, though.
The pump moves the hydraulic fluid which in turn moves the tiller motor. With the JD hydraulic tiller you can reverse the tiller on the hitch and back till with them. They really dig in better than the conventional tiller.

(originally posted by Sergeant)

So, no need for a rear pto. The pump (on a bracket) locks under the tractor and is attached to the output 2000 rpm shaft. Hydraulic lines attached to that, run back to the tiller.
The 3 point hitch is physically tied to the rockshaft, and lift and lowers with the same piece that lowers and raises the mower deck, I believe.

I purchased a 42 hydraulic tiller last fall that is in good shape for $900. The owner originally wanted $1000 (in Muncie IN), but I talked him down a little due to a few minor surface rust issues. I used the tiller this spring and it did a good job. I had it set to the maximum depth, and it tilled up 7 inches of nice, loose soil.

Along with the 3 point hitch, you will need weights for the front of the tractor. I put 3 fourty two pound suitcase weights on the front of my 425, because the tiller is heavy and lightens the front end too much.

Using a tiller like the model 42 really does save time and effort over a conventional tiller. I'm pleased with mine,

Cool, learned something new. I thought the hydro tillers ran off the tractor hydro ports. Guess if your buying a tiller, better make sure your getting the whole setup.

A little tid bit of Info On the 42inch Hydraulic tiller. You will need the Quick coupler From the Mowing deck to run it Because the Hydraulic tiller did not come standard with it It cost about $200.00 Plus. So You can use the One from the from the Mowing deck if the used one your Looking at does not have it on there . It's what I do. These tiller till alot nicer and faster than the Rear PTO Driven Tiller Plus you can reverse the tiller on the 3point frame and Back till with them I would suggest in Buying the ajustable feet for it if it doesn't have them all ready. There well worth the Investment
