PostSubject: Tiller tines question   Wed 14 Oct 2009, 7:09 pm

My Ford LGT has a PTO driven tiller. It works real well, but I noticed something about it today. On most tillers I have seen, the tines go one way and then the next one on the same shaft goes the other way. This tiller has 4 rows of tines, the middle 2 rows go back and forth.....but the outer rows, all the tines face inward.......Hope you are understanding what I am saying, so I don't have to go take a pic.......Anyways, any theories on this, Is mine correct or has someone just put it like this.......

Also...I have another set of tines from another tiller.......If I was to double up some of these on my tiller, thus making more chopping action, would this be hard on my machine?

I wouldnt add more tines, probly just break something. If it does a good job tilling the way it is now, id just let the tines be the way they are.

I'd have to agree with John. I think it might be hard on the tillers gear box. As for the tines, if it aint broke dont fix it.
