400 Series Adapters

400_series.jpg (28605 bytes)

Changes from 1973 to 1974 

The rear hitch assembly on the 400 series tractors (S/N 41001 and up) has been redesigned at two points . . . (1) the rear lift assembly, and (2) the drawbar draft arms. Also, because of the dimension differences between the mechanical and hydrostatic transmission cases, two adapter kits are available. Each is shipped complete as a drawbar and lift assembly.

Used with: 1600096 Rotary Tiller; 1600102 Lawn Revitalizer

To install on Tractors: 400 Series, S/N 41001 and up

Because the lift assembly is 1/8-inch smaller, the lift connecting rod mounted on the attachment is also resized. To mount in stock tillers and revitalizers to the 400 Series tractors (S/N 41001 and up) requires this new rod which replaces the one shipped with the attachment.

1650138 - lift rod assembly (on the right)

Used with: 1600098 Cultivator; 1600100 Spring Tooth Harrow

To install on Tractors: 400 Series, S/N41001 and up

This kit is a new attaching shaft which fits the 1/8-inch smaller rear lift on 400 Series tractors (S/N 41001 and up). The shaft packed with the attachment is eliminated and replaced by 1650138.
