I have several questions here about the RT-15, rototiller for the numbered loboys, mostly because I've never seen one, even in a picture, as far as I know.
Are they 3-point?
Otherwise, would it work with a standard FCub?
Also, the hi/low transmission for the numbered loboys, does is work with the FCub?
Is the value of the hi/low and RT-15 tiller comparable to the value of their Howard counterparts?
Does anyone on here have a tiller setup on a numbered loboy that could post pics for me?
How wide is that RT-15 tiller anyway?
Sorry for the multiple questions, but I would like to till with a Cub and the recent prices of the Howard stuff (speed reducer) seems to be out of my price range. I thought maybe I'd go another direction.
Got a line on a 184 I'm thinking of checking into. Any other thoughts?
I think I can hit on most of your questions.
Yes, the tiller was standard Cat 1 3-point hitch setup. Otherwise it could work on a cub.
The creeper drive (high/low) gear box on a numbered lo-boy will not work on the standard cub. The creeper drive is mounted in front of the rear differential on the numbered lo-boys, and since the rear differential in a numbered lo-boy is mounted to a frame, rather than using a torque tube like a standard cub, the numbered lo-boys have room for things to bolt on and work. The torque tube prevents you from just bolting on a creeper drive to a standard cub, which is why the Howard Speed Reducers were invented, to bolt in the drive axle.
I'll skip a few, and go to the dimensions. I belive that the tiller was 48" wide.
Photo. I do not have a close-up, but here are a couple:
1951 Farmall Cub, Cub Cadets 102, 104, 1811, 1864, Simplicity Legacy XL 4x4 Diesel with FEL, 60" mower, 50" Tiller
The tiller is in the TC-131 manual on the manual server so you can see the parts diagrams and picture on a tractor. No specifications or product description, though.
Ah ha!! I see its on our handy .pdf CD as well!
Thanks for the info gitractorman and the heads-up Bob!!
Always open to any other thoughts or experiences with this setup.
