Looking for a furrower attachment

Hi Folks,

Decided I want a furrower attachment for the big tiller. If the pic attaches, it's the second one from the left. Don't recall why I took this pic, but since I had it.... The tiller is a 7.5HP, Rear Tine, manual says "MTD Model Series 450." This one has TSC decals, but have seen them with Sears, etc.

I know I've seen the furrowers offered for sale on line only with no pics. Anyone have one or have any info on them? I have the push plow, only the blade is too narrow for my needs. I can get a wider blade for it, but it's almost as much as the furrower for the tiller.

Any input would be appreciated.

I also have two other tillers, one has lived at my brothers since I got it running, the other is a JD which needs a new engine. I'll replace the engine when I need another tiller....:-)

Thanks for your time,

Ev

Thanks Gator! I didn't think of Sears. Will be in town the first of the week, will stop by the local Sears and order one. From the pic, it's unclear how you attach it to the drag stake or depth adjustment.

Still like to hear from anyone who has one?

Thanks again,

Ev

I look at one today tiller just like yours but cub cadet had flat depth gauge that U-bolt fit over and tighten on should work. adjusting depth gauge should give some control my troy bilts back flat stay lifted when put sweep on back.

I have a home-made one around here that clamps to the drag stake with a "C" clamp on my Poulan pro, but it is not as large as the one shown.

Hi Folks,

Stopped by Sears and they were able to get to a better photo of the furrower Gator found. Won't fit my tiller without some major modifications.

Called MTD (nice folks, BTW) and they said the tiller I have won't accept a furrower due to the way the depth stake and rear shield are attached. So, guess I'll have to be creative and shape a piece of quarter inch steel and a Ubolt. Hmmm, maybe a "split bolt" (think of splicing two heavy gauge electrical ground wires together) if they come big enough.

Just what I need, another project....:-)

Thanks for all the responses.

Here's a few more available at Agri-Supply. I'm pretty sure Tractor Supply sells them also but couldn't find them on their website. I think most of these are replacements for field cultivators.
