    Reverse Rotation Rototillers

    I have been doing research on PTO driven Rototillers. I was hoping to get some insight on whether to get a regular rotation, or a reverse rotation. What are the Pro's/Con's between the too? Also, I did find out that Tarter makes a Rototiller where you can modify it to switch it between regular and reverse rotation. Does any one know of other brands where the rotation can be switched??

    My understanding is that the "County Line" brand tillers that Tractor Supply Co sells are the same design as the Tarter and can also be reversed. Some of the County Line stuff is made by Tarter so that may explain that.

    Well, I wonder about the Country Line, sold at TSC, its a 300-400 difference in price, is it really the same quality product, or is the the Cheap Chinese crap like you would find at Walmart?

    I have the 4' County Line tiller from Tractor Supply. I tilled 2 gardens and a portion of my yard this spring. I'm very happy with the tiller- doesn't seem to be cheaply made. It's reversible, but I don't expect to ever need that feature.

    On a walk-behind tiller I think reverse rotation would be useful. On a tractor-mounted implement I don't think it matters. My King Kutter Pro 60" tiller does a great job in various types of soils with forward rotation. It can till deeply and work things up pretty finely in most cases. Even in virgin sod it doesn't push the tractor around so I'm not sure what good reverse rotation would do.

    I own several County Line implements and there is virtually zero difference between them and the Tarter branded equipment other than the labels. And I've yet to find one that wasn't made here in the U.S. of A..

    I have a 4' County Line tiller and do A LOT of tilling, very rugged tiller and holding up very well. And as far as I know all the County Line tillers and rotary cutters are made by Tarter.

    I have a tiller for my Gravely,,,



    Till going forward, it tills "normal" rotation,,
    Till in tractor reverse, the tiller is tilling "reverse rotation"

    I till by going back and forth in my garden, no need to turn around, simply move over,,,

    Well there is a dilemma!!

    When tilling counter rotation, the tiller will jam with EVERY rock bigger than a baseball,,,

    I simply till at an idle in reverse, the machine has a slip clutch, the clutch will slip until it stalls.

    After 3 seasons, I do not have ANY rocks bigger than a baseball in my garden!!

    I love my 5' county line, and it's gotten quite a workout this year as well.
    Mine is made by Behlen, per the stickers and owners manual.

    Thanks, I've learned something today, what year is your tiller? Just curious because every time I've searched County Line tillers or rotary cutters it always leads to Tarter. I'm wondering if they do it by an awarded bid contract of sorts.
