    Agri Supply 48" Tiller (77709)

    I've been following some recent posts on tillers and been doing some research from past posts. After all the great info and realizing my use would be limited I just went with one of the cheapest ones (price at least). I went to Agri Supply on Saturday and picked up this tiller. With some of the reading I thought I was going to have to do some modifications similar to the King Kutter to get this tiller i-Match compatible, but to my surprise and delight it was pretty much hook and go. I had to adjust the top hook on the i-Match up one set of bolts in order for the top tiller mount to rest on the hook, but that was it.

    To date, I've done about 200 ft (4 passes at about 50') in sandy soil (virgin earth) for my neighbor. It took me about 15-20 minutes where it would have taken him maybe two hours and a lot of sweat with a small garden tiller. My wife and I will probably do a small garden too, but I'm also going to turn some soil to plant grass seed. I was thinking I might put out a post to see if I can do a few more small gardens for people in the area to get a little money back on his thing, but it's not something I really have to do.

    Just sharing the news...let me know if anyone has any questions.

    That is a fine looking tiller. Glad to hear hookup went well. With the speed she chews up ground you could be very popular in the neighborhood. Enjoy

    I am lucky in that the local (not national chain) rental place has 3pt equipment including a tiller. My garden spot is not that big ( but I have 5 acres) so for $100 for a day I will pick up the rental and do the big turnover and grind some peat into it. It is almost sod now since we didn't p,st last year. My bet is the rental unit isn't I match compatible, it's old and crusty.

    Before you start charging money for your tractor services, check three things. Do you need a business license? Do you have sufficient liability insurance to cover you if people or property are harmed or damaged? Will you need a tax ID number for your small business?

    I appreciate the top cover...these are concerns I had as well. Nothing is simple anymore. When I was at TSC this weekend I saw an older guy (older than me anyway), looking at a small walk-behind garden tiller. I was thinking I could save him money (buying, maintaining, etc) and time, but nothing is simple anymore. I can see going to someone's house, them telling me where to till and I snag a cable line, sewer line or worse and causing a big ruckus.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be keeping to friends and friends of friends at the most and just getting beers and handshakes in return. My neighbor and most of his friends are cops so maybe it'll save me money someday when my foot gets a little heavy.

    Thanks, helpful to see someone purchase it as I have been eyeing this tiller as well. Does it perform as well as you expected it? Any letdowns now that you are using it? If you could purchase another model the 2nd time around, would you?

    AgriSupply also has good prices on 3 pt spreaders, FYI.

    No regrets so far, but I'll report back in a couple of weeks. I hit one root yesterday and the tiller chewed it up and spit it out no problem. I can't see any regrets in my future unless it craps out completely.

    AgriSupply has a lot of stuff I'd like. I just don't want to let it all rust in the yard so I'm trying to keep in my limited storage. I'm thinking I can keep walking behind my small spreader, but I'm considering their PTO post hole digger so I can put some wire fencing on my perimeter.

    I watched a video awhile back of a tiller having the worst day ever, it found a metal t post, wrapped some re-bar around the tines, hit every rock type known on earth, etc. make sure you have the correct shear pins (i'm sure you have) or slip disc set lightly. The cable company doesn't bury the cable the customer does it so you can guess how deep they went. Be careful, have fun, the gov can only collect on what you report so if people pay you in cash it's up to you to (AHEM, COUGH, COUGH, whirring noises) report it.

    I had my house built (custom build on 8 Acres) and I was there when the cable company (sub-contracted) came and buried the cable. It's not very deep. In fact, it was cut twice before I moved in. The first time was by a trencher when the plumber ran a trencher for the feeder line from the street. I had the cable company come back and rerun the line so it would by uninterrupted. The second time was my driveway contractor - he caught it with his JD 3032 as he was grading for the parking pad (after I warned him it was there. That time the cable company came back and spliced it and put a 'snot box' on it.

    That aside, good advice (shear pins and slip disc). I'll keep an eye on it.
