I have found a source for some what I believe to be grey market tillers. Yanmar, Mitibuishi, and Eskie. The seller tells me they will hook right up to a compact JD, NH, Kubota and so on... has anyone had any experiances with these units?

I purchased a 54" yanmar tiller a few years ago. I had to move the three point pins out about 4" each to get them to the standard cat 1 spread of 26". Usually the tines on these tillers are well worn but usable. Tines will cost about $250/set to replace so you need to look at them closely. Overall the tiller is solid and does a nice job.

As stated by Johnson445, most of the Yanmar tillers are category 1 pin size, but narrower. Most tractors lift arms can go in far enough so that is not a real problem, but you will also notice that the upper link pin hole on the tiller is a couple inches forward of being in a vetical plane with the lower pins. Yanmars use a two piece top link on the tillers and they work great, but you may find yourself messing with a standard one piece toplink to get it to the right length. Also Yanmar uses a real nice driveshaft, but since it is made for a particular tractor, the total slip available on the shaft is minimal. To summarize, you may have to put in a little effort to make it work, but it isn't too complicated.

I have sold about 70 Yanmar tillers this year and have had zero problems. We do check them out first and change the gear oil, seals if leaking and tines if needed. Tines are around $200 for a set in our area, so that is a big factor.

I have read that Yanmar tillers are made to to be matched with a specific size tractor. If this is the case, which Yanmar tiller would you fellas recommend for a YM 2010D?

Who should I contact for a good quality Yanmar tiller for a 2010D? Just looking to save some bucks over a new tiller. Will mainly be used to prep about a half acre lawn around our new house. Also plan to get back into gardening, once the landscaping is complete. Nothing bigger than about 30'x60' for the garden site.

Thanks,

Red

The 2010 probably came with a RS1404, but anything in the 1400 or 1500mm size would work fine. The RSB models are a little newer. An RSB1400 or RSB1500 would be my recomendation. As shipping is a big issue, where you buy depends on where you live. We are on the west coast.

Dave,

Thanks for the prompt response with the metric sizing recommendation. Looks like I will be off to search around the net for additional details for the specific models you mentioned. As for my location, I am in Western NC. Kinda far to be shipping a tiller I imagine. If ya don't mind, you could still drop me an email with pricing on a nice quality unit. It could work out. Worth a try.

Thanks again,

Red

BeeFarmer - care to elaborate/expose your source for grey market tillers? I have a Bolens Iseki compact and would be interested in acquiring an original tiller

RedKnuckles, I'll check on shipping in the morning. We keep a nice supply of tillers on hand, normally 15-30 in stock. I have a real nice RSB1300. I'll get back to you. Dave

There is a place in Ohio that has them. But actually there are many places that have them. If you look on EBAY you will see several units with tillers. If you write the seller he will be sure to let you know he has several tillers.

I did exactly that and it seemed that many of these grey market tractor sellers always had extra tillers on hand. I was looking for one for a NH TC33. I didn't want to do any welding or conversions so I am now looking for a unit that fits right up to my tractor. If you have a welder and all right tools I am sure they are nice units.

BeeFarmer, you will find that the tillers for the newer F-series use a longer driveshaft and are closer to a true cat 1 spec. The toplink hole is still forward a bit, but that can be accomadated with a short toplink, or build a simple 2-piece folding toplink that mimics the function of the Yanmar toplinks. Just an idea for you.
