What direction and speed does a rear 3pt pto on a Bolens run?
I found a Bolens tiller and was thinking of using it on my Wheel Horse if the speed was near and the direction right. Mine is 1000 counter clock wise

Many years ago I ran a Massey Ferguson tiller on my Bolens G14. I had to take the tines off the tiller and swap sides with them because it turned backwards from a Massey. Once I swapped the tines for the reverse direction, it worked perfectly.

Since you said 3-PT I'm thinking that you are talking about one that was for the Iseki Bolens?

If you could post pics or model numbers, that sure would help.

Here are the ones that I see listed in the Bolens Attachments Guide.

1302 - 42" 454-724 PTO speeds
1305 - 48" 454-724 PTO speeds
1307 - 51" 540 RPM speed
17393 - 42" Side shift
17394 - 50" Side shift

As you can see SOME of them give the PTO speed needed and others don't. You would have to do some more investigating for those.

As for the rotation, I can't help you with that.

I believe that tube frames and large frames turn opposite ditections.
The TF and LF turned the same direction. The Q series and and other later models turned opposite.

All I know for sure is that it was on a large frame Bolens and had a 18hp on it. I'll check it out more this weekend and see if I can find a serial number on it

If it was on a Large Frame Bolens then it wouldn't be a 3-pt mounted tiller, and wants a 2000 RPM PTO input

Here's how the tiller mounts on an 1886:

yea anything that is 3pt mounted would be 540rpm but if its on a LF bolens its not 3pt. if you are looking for a 3pt tiller there all going to be 540 rpm and turn clockwise
