There are several informative threads about King Kutter tillers, including some discussion of the XB series for sub-compact tractors.
I have been leaning toward the XB for the following two reasons:
1) The lower lift pins on the XB should allow the 1-series to lift it higher off the ground (so that it won't drag when I need it raised).
2) The XB is centered behind the tractor rather than offset. The King Kutter II 4' model is offset.
I now have the opportunity to buy a very slightly used King Kutter II. I'm wondering if I should go for it, or hold off for a new XB on sale (hopefully later in the spring).
I'd like to hear from current King Kutter II / 1-series owners. Does the offset tiller prevent it from covering the tire tracks? How high can the 1-series lift the King Kutter II off the ground?
I haven't seen much discussion on these two specific questions, so I thought I would ask everyone's opinions.
