Default #2 Tiller, 1211 vs 149

I recently installed a number 2 tiller on my 149. Tiller works great but speed control on the 149 is difficult. I also have a 1211. Will the lift from the 149, and belt fit the 1211? Would the 1211 be a better choice for the tiller?
Thanks in advance,

Gary

Any hydro is more difficult to control speed when tilling. I will take a manual trans IH Cub Cadet any day over a hydro Cub Cadet when it comes to tilling.

My Dad purchase a new IH Cub Cadet 1450 with a tiller back in 1977. Never could a steady speed when it comes to tilling. Putting a tiller on a 1211 ????
I think the center section of the read end that holds tiller drive is aluminum. It has a few more bolts holding everything together. A 1211 PTO takes a bigger/wider belt than the 1450 does.

Mr Merk, Thank you for the information it appears I was wrong in thinking that a manual transmission would be to fast for a tiller. I do have a 1200 however being an old man I doubt the manual lift would work for me. You certainly saved me a lot of time and energy trying to put it on the 1211. Thanks again Gary

I have a IH Cub Cadet 128 that I use on a tiller like yours. My 128 has a creeper unit in it to get the right speed. Creeper unit has a 4 to 1 speed reduction . My 128 has helper spring in it to help lift the tiller.

I have a 149 and a self powered (homemade conversion) #2 tiller and it is a total pain to regulate the speed. Now my swash control springs aren't really doing their job due too wear either, though. The tiller has a 14 HP motor and the tines are over speed by about fifteen percent. If I hit a tough patch, I almost get whip lash!!

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
