Does Sears make a tow-behind tiller for its garden tractors? I'm looking for one to use with my GT5000. If not, is there another manufacturer that makes a compatible unit?

Great. I thought they make one, but I can't seem to find it on their website. Do I need to go to a Sears to get one? Any idea how much they cost?

It's a tiller that attaches to a sleeve hitch...You don't necessarily have to buy it at Sears....I think Agrifab manufactures one

Sears has the 5hp tow behind made by agrifab which is also sold by northerntool as an agrifab. It can be used on lawn tractors and ATVs. Sears also has the 8hp sleeve hitch mounted tiller made by AYP. The 8hp is on Sam's GT. The nice thing about the sleeve hitch is that you can raise it easier than the tow behind. I think they're pretty close in price. Usually you can catch a good sale at sears.

WOW - those things are expensive.... That's almost half as much as the cost of the tractor. Seems crazy that they're so much more expensive than the comparable push units. Guess I'll look for a used one...

That's the same as the craftsman 5 hp tow behind.

Here's a link to the AYP craftsman 8hp sleeve hitch mounted tiller I posted awhile back. Maybe you could make it a sticky?

I've also have the Craftsman tiller with a 8H.P. tech. engine. Mine is painted green.I don't know how old it is. I bought it used,But it never had been in the dirt before I used it. I also have a sleeve hitch, but it has not been installed yet.

Why not buy a new/used front tine tiller, and adapt it for your GT. I'm making some mods to one of my front tine tillers, so that it hook-up to my sleeve hitch. The swath won't be as wide, but your wallet will thank you for it.

Welcome to Tractorforum mrylance!

Poulan sold on for a sleeve hitch a few years back...I don't think they actually manufactured it but someone sure did...I don't know if its still around.
