I've been researching tiller for a while and wanted some of your opinions. I was looking at the Frontier and JD brands but at $2000 plus I'm not sure I get much more value than a $1500 one. I'm mostly looking for one to use on the garden and small food plots. Here are a few I'm looking at: LMC Ag, Tar River, Woods and King Kutter, TSC County Line. I know most everyone uses Chinese gear boxes and from what I've read they aren't all that bad.
I'm looking hard at the LMC. They spent a lot of time on the phone with me and with thier 48" gear driven version it was in the $1500 range. I know the folks that make the firminator food plot implement use it on their new root tiller version.
I can get a 48" woods RT48 for $1675 at my dealer however it has some rust on the gear box and they won't come off that any more. The frontier is $2k but it's chain driven.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
