    Yeah, I've got both too. Used a '83 Horse for years before
    I got my tractor and tiller. That thing bucked like Bocephus and would run away like Carl Lewis from singing the national anthem. Beat the absolute crap out of me every time I used it. I'm talking red headed step child stuff. That walk behind tiller stuff is for young men only. Good riddance. Thing was dangerous.

    Now here's the question... My Wife says i'm a moron for buying this tiller to till my garden( i also have a walk behind) I say its perfect. Who's correct? Kent
    Kent. you are correct ! Wise move. Now, sell the walk-behind one and tell her you sold it for $2,000 more than you did and it paid for the 3-pt one plus cash. You'll look like a deal making machine

    Moron maybe like me didn't buy the tractor and tiller till later in life.

    Guessing your wife has a vacuum cleaner or some type floor cleaner or you own a automatic washing machine, clothes dryer and many other items to help make her life easier.

    Agree these items are used about every day , tiller only a couple times a year.

    Just remember the sofa isn't as comfortable as your bed if you mention any of the items I listed.

    You bought the wrong sofa.

    When I buy an implement mine goes and picks the one she thinks is best. She drives the salesman nuts. When I buy a new gun she thinks that means she can also buy a new gun. Or if she likes the one I just bought she gives it to herself. Then tells me I can borrow it. She bought a pink AR15 at the gun show. I won't be borrowing that. What has the world come to when they sell pink AR15s?

    in the beginning of being on here, my woman had sneaking suspicions of why i was on this site so much every day
    but once she talked to ole giz-all them suspicions was over.

    having lots of implements is the best thing everexcept ice-cream

    When I was a teenager, I used to till the garden with a fork and rake. I did a pretty damn good job and it was all over in an hour or two. Nice workout.

    In my twenties, I got my own place an bought a front tine tiller that beat the hell out of me, but I could handle it.

    In my thirties, I got a Troybilt combo tiller/cultivator which promised me that I would "Create the property of my dreams!". It didn't.

    In my forties, I got a Husqvarna rear tine tiller, finally I had found tilling Nirvana.

    In my fifties, that Husqvarna was beating the daylights out of me (mostly due to rocks) and I started to look at options for my lawn tractor - this lead me to the 1025R and my KK XB 48" tiller. It is heavenly. If only I had that when I was preparing my vineyard! I should have bought it sooner.

    Each implement had its place as it was a match for my resources and pain threshold at the time.

    I am sure you are just getting started? If not that is gonna be some expensive vegies.

    Anyhow, if you tried that here you would sink in the muck. It must be raining every other day.

    BTW what are you gonna do with all that rhubarb? Here, if I am going to even give it away, I have to deliver it.

    When I first started reading your post I thought we were still talking about women.....


    My wife has figured out that without the proper tool, the job just doesn't get done.

    Way back when, I had a walk behind tiller. Nope, not going to make that mistake again.

    We have talked about a garden, and where to put said garden, and some point during the discussion she asked "how much is the whatever you're gonna need for the tractor gonna cost". She is pretty smart.

    You're not a moron, your just a guy. Sometimes that's what our wives call us when they just don't understand.
