    JD 42 hydraulic tiller on CUT?

    Does anyone know if the model 42 Hydraulic tiller Deere sells for the x700 series is compatible with any of the CUTs? There is one for sale here locally and I was wondering if it would work on my 2320.

    Good question...I have no clue. If the X-series has hydraulic power to run it I can't see why the 2320 wouldn't. I am sure you would need to fabricate the hitch and have a long hoses made possibly. Depending on the price it might be a good project.

    Jdfun,

    The minimum requirements for the 42 tiller are a cat O three point hitch, and 2000 rpm mid PTO. This tiller has it's own pump that fits on the mid PTO to pump oil that is resivoured in the tiller itself. The 42 is a good option if you don't have 540 rear PTO.

    if that is the case, I'd bet good money the hoses as the unit sits now would not be long enough to reach the mid PTO on the 2320, since the 2320 is considerably larger than the x7xx series (not that these could not be lengthened, however). My other thought is that there must be some bracket that would need to be made on the pump side where it connects to the mid PTO, to hold the pump in place.
    thanks for the replies, guys.

    Great info. I have wondered how they power them and now I know!

    I have the same idea in mind, just picked up a 42 tiller from a 345(mounting frame + belt driven pump).
    Plan on picking up the mounts from Jim B. when he gets back up and running.
    Still trying to solve the pump side though, my preference is to put together a pump/bracket for the 540rpm pto on the back of the tractor.

    FAQ
    Why would you ever want to do that ?

    The good:
    A) The 42 tiller is an amazing piece of equipment
    B) The 42 tiller is safer then shaft driven tillers(My Impression)
    C) The 42 tiller has pressure relief valve, should you run into anything
    D) The 42 tiller fits through my gate and works well in more confined spaces
    E) I paid $700 for the tiller ;-)

    The not so good
    1) Will need three point mounting hardware for this version($500 if using Deere)
    2) Will need to fabricate pump/bracket of some kind to fit my tractor($500 for new pump/bracket)
    3) Narrower than my tractor(2720) so will have tire tracks(perhaps need offset)
    4)

    Questions:
    >Which 540PTO Hydraulic Pump will work best(looking at a prince unit)?
    >Can the tractor hydraulics run the tiller?
    >Should I just resell, and pick up a KK ;-)

    regards,

    M

    Seems to me that you are going to go through a lot of time and expense to adapt this tiller when you could just pick up a new four foot 3 pt 540 PTO tiller for around $1500 and get the same results. So, yeah... sell it and pick up a KK.

    +1 Here. Just the PTO pump alone is north of $300, not sure if the tractors hydraulics would power it or not without knowing the specs on the old pump.

    Yep, no blinders on here. I think I will be in at about $1200, which is still quite low for a hydro unit. So even at the same price I think I would do it, considering the above benefits. In our area the hydro's are going for $1500-$2000, and will be grabbed quickly at this time of year.

    the other advantage, is quite frankly if this all works out well, the unit could be installed on any tractor with a 540rpm rear pto / cat 0/1

    Did I mention I love the hydro tiller
