The “new” tiller is finally attached and has been tested out on a 50-foot bed.
It was a bit of a long struggle to get it attached. First I needed a different category top three-point link. Then I had a lot of trouble getting to move the PTO shaft to extend it to fit on the tractor. I finally gave up and called in some more experienced hands – the neighbors. I had no clue whether the PTO shaft was beat up beyond repair. After a couple of hours of beating, sanding, greasing, and more beating, the tiller was attached and successfully field tested!
Now we can begin our transition to 4 foot wide plots with grassy strips between for foot and tractor tire traffic.
