I have an X485 and I am looking to attach a hydraulic tiller that I picked up, but for the life of me I can't seem to find what male ends fit the quicktach hydraulic couplers that are on the mower. Does anyone know what the male part number is that I will need on the implement hoses? When I talked to the Deere parts guy the other day he was clueless and when I have looked on their website I haven't had any luck either.

Thx.

What tiller do you have? The tractor's hydro pump won't supply enough flow to power a tiller. The Deere tillers run a pump driven off the mid PTO.

Yeah, most X700 (X4x5/X5x5) owners would get one that is shaft driven by the rear-pto, like the 647 (see Rubadub's photos). Much more common than hooking up a pump to the mid-pto.

But I think Sergeant uses a smaller hydraulic tiller that has a mid-pto pump. He can probably tell you what the advantages are.

What gpm can the pump supply? I got a H70 ingersol tiller.
If I'm not mistaken, with your 2WD it's about 4.5 gpm total (the 4WD versions have about 6 gpm). But a big chunk of that is for the power steering. So you probably only have 2-3 gpm available for hydraulic implements.

What does that H70 want for gpm?

Off the top of my head, it's only like 5-6 GPM. Your Ingersoll requires way more than that. Not to mention you will overwork and overheat the onboard hydraulics. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
