    Which tiller to get for my 3046R?

    Looking over options I have close by;

    -Very slightly used JD 665 65” tiller $2500
    -New Tar River YCT 074 72” tiller $2200
    -King cutter professional 72” tiller $2250
    -Countryline 72” tiller $2000

    A 60” would cover my wheels but I believe my 46hp will run a 72” just fine.

    Thoughts or opinions? Thanks!

    You have 46 PTO HP? I'm sure you could run a 6ft just fine. I use a 5ft KK Pro @ 25 PTO HP, with zero issues. We have some nice soil around here tho, just rich black dirt. Soil conditions (hard pack, untilled grass, moisture content) will play a roll, as well as ground speed, depth of till etc. etc.
    I would buy used (If you can) and save a few bucks, let someone else take the new price hit. I only paid $900 for mine in really good condition, off of Craigslist.

    Sorry, I don't know enough about the differences between them, to give a recommendation.

    Which tiller to get for my 3046R?

    It should have plenty of power for a 72" tiller. I have run a JD 660 60" tiller with my 2038r and it did fine. I'd bet it would also handle the 665 as well (weight might start to be an issue on the 2038r).

    I was also thinking of getting a tiller. I was tired of borrowing my family's 660 with a 1hr+ drive to get it every time I needed. But then I did a bunch of reading about farming, and how tilling isn't really that good for the ground. So now I'm just using an old set of discs to do my tillage for the garden, and it's cheeper too. The plus side is you feel like a real bad ass farmer on your 30-70' garden.

    Maybe a tiller is what you need for what you plan to do with it. But maybe not. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Used is smallest and most expensive.
    Never heard of tar river.
    KK and County Line are very similar from what I've seen.
    I'd go with the County Line. I have a 5' and have no issues with it.
