    Tiller width for 2025R

    Help me spend some money...

    I plan on adding a tiller to my 2025R for food plots and I'm trying to decide between a 48 or 60 inch version. The only brand around me is King Kutter, and since I have no desire to spend hundreds on truck freight that's what I'm planning on buying.

    Wondering if anyone who runs a 2025R has either width tiller on their machine and would care to give some feedback.

    I DID try and use the search function first but didn't see anything.

    Thanks

    I have a 52" Woods for my 2025. It's slow going on the first pass in this hard NC red clay but once it's broken up, it have no issues what so ever.

    Does it matter what you have hung on the front of the tractor when tilling? I would assume because of the weight of the tiller you'd want ballast? Wondering if you need the FEL left on or if you can get away with just hanging five of the suitcase weights off the bracket on the front. Thanks very much for the insights...

    I've got a 50" Landpride tiller on a 1025r. The 2025r has the same 18 pto horsepower. My 1025r has no problems spinning my 50" tiller. You will want ballast on the front with the tiller on the back. Otherwise your steering gets light. I usually have 5-7 42 pound weights on the front when using my tiller.

    I don't have any personal experience, but I've been researching a tiller this week for my 2520 so I have seen a lot of info. From what I've read, the 2520 can handle a 60" tiller just fine. The 2025R gives up 200# and 2HP to the 2520 so they are fairly close. If HP is an issue (lots of 60" tillers spec 25HP as the bottom end) then consider something like the King Kutter XB line which are specifically made for subcompact tractors. The 54" one might be perfect for your needs.

    Interestingly, there doesn't seem to be much online for reviews or comparisons between tiller brands. Probably not a big deal for you since you've decided on King Kutter. I did find that quite a few brands are just rebadged from a very small number of actual tiller manufacturers. There don't seem to be too many features or variations to consider. Forward or reverse tine rotation and gear vs. chain drive are the two I can readily see.

    Good luck in your search!

    I've run it one time w/o the FEL on and it was very light in front. I highly recommend ballast of some sort, be it weights or the FEL.

    when your tilling most weight is in ground I never have loader on it gets in the way when turning around and you will have your front wheels engage. But best way to find out is personal experience this coming spring

    Thanks everyone for all the information. Exactly what I needed. Now all I need is for it to stop snowing!

    snow? what is that? I seem to have forgot what it is after this winter.

    My hat would be in the keep your eye on CL or go with the 48 KK (which I run). The 48 will be cheaper and easier to move. You may have to do a half-cut slowly and then go back over it, but it does just fine in Ohio clay. Keep us posted on what you find!
