1st gear would be the only gear that may work. Even then 1st can be a tad bit fast for a tiller. HP is around 45 give ot take a bit and yes a 6 footer is about right and a 5 footer probably would be better

It will have enough power in most conditions but the ground speed will be too fast in all but ideal conditions.

Tiller??? If you refer to a rototiller, then I agree with others. If we are talking about a field cultivator type tiller, then you can easily handle the load. I have done many gardens and a few fields with this type of tiller over the years.

ditto what the others said.

fords of that era are great plow and disc machines.. but do not become good tilelr machines without a howard or everette post tranny.. or a 8 or 10spd.. MAYBEE a 6. As dean and old said. 5spd/ 1st gear in good worked soil and you might get by.. etc..

I tried to pull a tiller this past summer and it was to fast even in first. I have an everett trans out of a Jubilee. Will that work in the 800/801?

Not sure it it will work with a 5 speed. I know it should work with a 4 speed but always heard the Aux trans only work with the 4 speed trans

I have another 4 speed 700 that I could use. I was curious about the hydraulics. The Jubilee is external off the pump, but the 700 runs internal through the trans. Is there a fix or work around?

Both the Jubilee and the 700 have engine mounted hyd pumps and the line go into the transmission housing so it should in theory work
