I am buying a 2017 2032R and I seem to have 2 choices of tiller from my dealer the JD655 and the frontier RT1157 I am told these are the only 2 that fit the horsepower rating of my tractor.
The 655 is in stock but it is about 4 inches shorter than the width of the tractor, if I understand the specification correctly. I was told it is a commercial grade unit and they want 2800.00 for it.
The frontier RT1157 is a couple of inches wider and has an offset feature that I believe would alleviate the narrowness issue. BUT It isn't in stock and they say its about a 2 month wait and here is the kicker I would have to wait to take delivery of the tractor until then. It is $50 dollars cheaper but its seems crazy to make me wait for the tractor until the rototiller is in.
I sure dont mind waiting for the bits and pieces to come in but I want the tractor while I wait. Is that normal to have to wait for the whole package before I can get my tractor?
Anyway, I want the tiller purchase to be in the financing of the tractor so it seems these are my choices and the 655 seems to be all I am left with. Can you offset the 3 point hitch to one side a few inches to make up for the lack of width of the 655?
Any other ideas?
I wanted to add I am pretty new to these type of tractors and I have asked a couple of questions on this forum now and received great help so Thank you I really appreciate it.
