    2032R & Tiller

    So looking to get a tiller, is 5 foot to big or just right?

    Also looking at used market what should I watch for in a used one?

    I am running a 65" on a 2038R. I realize the 2016 2032R is a different frame size but my 400 Garden Tractor runs a 48".

    Both will work running them but if the 400 with a 20hp Kohler can do 4' I am quite sure your would do a 60". Being a hydro you can go slow and that will do a good job. I don't know the speed I go on either but it is probably only 1 or 2 mph anyway. IMO you need one that will complete cover the width of the rear tires otherwise you are always rototilling at an angle because one side settles down in the fresh dirt. I am guessing a 55 would cover the tracks.

    I've got a 5' that I've used behind the 2320 and the 3320. The 2320 handles it OK so I think you'll be just fine.

    Decide if you want one with forward rotating tines or rear rotating tines. Rear rotating tine tillers do a better job in most cases. I bought a land pride err 1058 used.

    So when you say rear or forward you are talking about direction of rotation I assume?

    Yes, direction that the tines rotate. Reverse rotating tillers seem to need more tractor to handle them well. Just what I’ve heard, never used one. I have the RT1165 for my 2038R. I haven’t used it yet, so I can’t comment on how it handles it.

    The frontiers are so much more expensive, what makes them that way besides being green?

    Probably nothing. I have the 665 Deere and yes it is pricey but the 400’s is a 1982 and I have never had to work on it. I plan on this one being the same. However it is heavy, smooth and a pleasure to use.

    I have seen the king cutter and some of the others on here and they all look like fine tillers as well. Really there is not much to them. I think perhaps the only point of value would be in 20 years if you need a part or you need a dealer to service it. Maybe resale value but I think mine was 3,000 in round numbers. Let’s say in twenty years someone would pay 1,500. That means a King Kutter at 1,500 (guess) will always beat it in resale even if the number is $1.00.

    No matter the brand make sure it is quick tach ready if you have one so you don’t need to modify out of the box. If you dont have a quick tach and an odd brand make sure the cat 1 dimensions on it match what your tractor is. I seem to see a lot of posts that cat 1 sometimes can be different even though the specs are very clear.

    Yep, directional rotation is what I meant. Also my tiller model is a rtr 1058, not err 1058. STUPID AUTO CORRECT got me! As Yank said reverse tine tillers do require more tractor when in hard packed soil but they do a better job.

    60" KK on my 2038R no issues covers tire tracks, I am sure the 2032R would be just fine with it as well. If you have a Rural King around keep an eye open you can get them on sale for 10-15% off a few times a year.
