So I’m thinking about perching a 140 to do some tilling next year. I’m looking for some pros and cons in the model years to help in my search. Any input would be helpful
I agree with the 214 being easier. I had a 200 with a tiller and the tiller runs backwards. You put that baby in creeper gear and just steer. BUT without the lift assist those tillers are heavy to lift.71 to 74 the Rear Tiller PTO shaft is cheaper and easier to find.
the 68 to 70 has a different Rear PTO shaft they are hard to find and wont be cheap when you due.
the only other thing is keeping a steady speed on the Hydro for tilling.
I have a 214 with tiller and went to a 74 140 with tiller and the 74 is way better. Only thing I miss is just the steady creep of the 214 1st gear.
Drillinguy...I owned a 1973 JD 140 H1 for about 15 years...used it for hauling fire wood, rolling my yard and plowing snow...loved the tractor except the steering...I finally found a good 318 which has power steering...The 140 H1 is a great tractorSo I’m thinking about perching a 140 to do some tilling next year.
