Iseki KC4
« on: May 02, 2009, 17:49 »
Hi all.
I have just purchased an iseki kc4 tiller/2 wheel tractor, and was wondering if anyone knew the correct size of engine that was originally fitted, as mine has got a briggs and stratton 3 horse power that doesn't seem quite big enough. There is not a lot of info on the web as I can find, and any I can seems to be french. Mine does have some french writing on it so am assuming that is where it came from. Will try and get a photo or 2 on here soon.
All the best, and thanks in advance.
Huzey
All the gear.......No idea!

I don't really know a thing about these machines, but someone in cornwall had one.
I see that he hasn't posted since sorting out his machine, but it might be worth gving him a "pm" and seeing if he can share some info with you.
I think Ransome's are still importing Iseki equipment though......

I cannot find this model listed but is possably a newer version of the KC420 or KC450 which had 5hp and 7hp engines.  Can you post a picture

It looks like the 450 range so I guess a 5hp at least, and with a deck that wide i would think a 7hp would be a good idea.
Nice bit of kit lots of gears to play with.
Engine will be "Q" fit so any honda G engine with a 19mm straight shaft will sit well as the power plant.

It is a 26 inch tiller. I think the blades are adjustable, as well as the wheel width.

New engine turned upand fitted yesterday, and have just tried it out on the plot. What a great bit of kit. Just got to get a couple of new belts now and we should be sorted. :D
Thanks all for the input and interest.
Regards Huzey.

No I haven't done that Shaun. I am going to use it to prepare the seed bed, and then use either my Landmaster 140 with hoe blades on, or if I pull my finger out, I have just been given a Landmaster 70 with an old jap engine that needs looking at, that is about 12 inches wide with hoe blades on that would go between the rows nicely. I wonder if I can graft the briggs I took off the Iseki on to the landmaster 70?  :tongue2:
