I use a Kubota w/hydrostatic trans to till with 60" tiller, works great.
I often wonder about trying the tiller on the Jubilee with the Sherman Trans on low range, but they say it also slows down the pto. so no go. I also wonder if you had a hydraulic drive pto you might then run with a sherman at low range.
But from my experience with a tiller you really want a crawler type trans, because I really crawl along with the Kubota in order to get a finely tilled dirt.
The tiller does almost push the tractor along by itself.
Get a variable speed electric motor with a small but fat tire and use that small diameter tire to drive the rear tractor tire. Then you could run the pto at a high speed with the tractor motor and drive the tractor wheels separate with the electric.
TOH will figure it out for you... lol...
