    I think my 647 JD tiller is the right size for the tractor. I am sure there are other brands that will work as well. I am sure those people will chime in soon.

    I have a 5" LandPride tiller I use with a larger tractor. I hooked it to my 1025R just to see how it would do and it was oversized for the tractor. It tilled fine going down 3 or 4 inches in previously tilled soil but tilling down the max of the tiller (about 8") really pulled the tractor down and it didn't do very well on sod. I also had to hang 200 lbs of weight on the front of the tractor to keep the front end down.

    I was at an auction a few months back and bought a used 48" AgriFab tiller. We use our 1025r 99% for mowing but for $100 couldn't pass this up. I hooked this to the 1025r and it works great. No issues with tilling to the maximum depth of the tiller, broke up new sod just fine and the weight was much more in line with the tractor's specs.

    The brand you go with is a matter of choice but I would definitely suggest you go with a 48" tiller.

    I agree that about 48" is good for the 1 series. I just got a 48" for my 1026R. I got one for sub compacts from Tractor Supply. The attachment points are lower which gives you more ground clearance when moving to and from use area. It is also a little lighter than the standard cat 1 48" model. Still has plenty of weight, I do not remember exactly but it is over 450#. TSC has changed their supplier for these sub compact models. They are now made by Tarter and are chain drive. They require type 00 grease for the chain case which is not readily available. Otherwise it works well and for my occasional use was quite a bit less expensive.

    Here is a link to a thread I started this spring. I like the tiller and for the money its hard to beat. Now I will say I've never felt like power has been an issue. It is HEAVY! With that being said I think a 5' would be better able to cover your tracks. Lifting the 5' TSC tiller would be right at the tractor's limit. So that's something to think about. With my loader on it made the front light going up hills and mine is just the 4'.

    The first three years I had my 5' KK tiller, I used it on a 2210. It would lift it just fine.. However, without any front end weight or loader, you could lift the front end up with your pinky!! I just ran the loader frame no bucket and was fine. NOW, my main issue was HP, and lack of it. A 2210 will run a 5' just not full depth. IMO 5' is too much unless your talking 2520 maybe a 2320 but Im gonna say 2520 and up and your fine..

    I ran mine all the way down, as in no skids at all, when doing my garden and the 1026R didn't pull nearly as much as I thought it would with a 4' tiller back there. I hit chunk of wood and it slipped the clutch, but it broke free before the tractor really pulled down. Once I went N/S I then went E/W and it went even deeper. The soil was premium Iowa Loess Hill loam. It had some sod and other places were bare. It left a really nice fluffy seed bed. The soil was 1" maybe 1 1/2" taller than the untilled ground.



    I don't think you'll be disappointed with this type/price tiller. The JD 647 is lighter, chain drive, and double the price. It was on my list, but I just couldn't justify the almost double cost. It looked really good thou!

    p.s. Small garden I know. Didn't have a PTO that would work any longer than what I got. It turned out to be a bad instrument cluster. That's a whole nother thread.
