I know there's a lot of threads on this and I have done a ton of research sifting through those threads but I'm having trouble on my decision. I need a tiller for my 1025R and I see the best option is for sure a 4' tiller so I'm good there. It seams the majority of people go with either the King Kutter or the TSC CountryLine tiller for their SCUT.
Comparing between the two; the CountryLine is a bit less than the KK. Any real reason to spend a bit extra for the KK over the CL? I know the KK is not quick hitch compatible, but I cannot find any information about the Country Line being compatible with a quick hitch; is it?
Also I see the depth only shows 4" on the specs for the Countryline, but the KK depth was double that. Is that realistic?
My local JD dealer has a Woods tiller coming in but it is $600 more than the TSC Countryline tiller. The JD tiller is an extra $1k so definitively not going that route. I like the idea of purchasing through the dealer since they would support repairs, I'm just not sure it's worth the extra cost. What happens when the TSC tiller breaks? Are parts readily available? Do shops work on these?
Thanks in advance.
