Perhaps someone will correct me, but my understanding is that a TO30 does not have a gear low enough for effective use of most 3 point tillers. In first gear, if you run the engine fast enough to get adequate PTO speed the tractor is moving along more quickly than desired. I think this may be what minor09 is referring to when he suggests trying one before buying.

I'll admit right off I haven't tried it as I don't have a friend with one to borrow. But every time I've looked at it this is what I read. And I do know how fast my TO30 moves in 1st at 3/4 throttle.

Now, if you have a gear reduction add-on for your transmission, that's a totally different story.

And, if you try it and it works, I'll be glad to know.

That is the same scenario I have with my bush hog in my rough back area too fast to get a clean cut and then you have to turn sharp goinf fast to get a clean cut while turning. Love the little tractor but? I have a tiller but would never waste my time to put it on the fergy. (need a step down box)

I should look into that. I did not even consider the gear ratio. Ferguson did make a tiller at one point for these tractors from what I have seen. I need to do some research. Thank you for the heads up.
