    Tiller for 1023E?

    Hello Everyone, I have the 1023E, I was about to buy the Tarter 48” model Black Rotary Tiller, RTMB4 from Tractor Supply, however I was told my tractor does not have enough PTO HP to run it? How much does PTO HP play into the picture? They wanted to sell me another chain drive model instead of this gear drive model and it was more expensive! Seems anything that say Sub Compact” is now more expensive!

    You can run a 48 inch tiller fine. Worse case, if your ground is really hard, might have to go over it twice. A lot of people use 54 inch tillers on their 1 series. Talk to Levi, I think his tiller is pretty large, might be misremembering though.

    I run the 60" County Line (Tarter) on my 1025R, and have it set for reverse. The only time I have an issues if its really wet (and I shouldn't be tilling anyway.)


    You'll be fine with the 48" on the 1023R.

    Pat(Pjr832) had a tiller on a 1023 if I remember right before he got the 2025. I don’t remember any complaints from him about it.

    I used to run 40” of tiller on a 10hp 112. It did great except for a few instances where I had to do multiple passes going 1-2” each pass.

    Another thing to look at chain drive is usually 4 tines per gang and gear drive are 6. With the 6 it takes 30% less horsepower because it takes smaller bites but more of them. Got a 48 gear drive on my 1025 and it plsy's with it

    Thanks everyone, it’s what I was thinking too. So if the tiller recommendation is 20 PTO HP and my tractor is rated at 15 PTO HP does it just run slower or not enough torque to spin the tiller faster? Will it heat up and damage the tractor PTO gears? Thanks in advance !

    Sure did, my 1023 ran that 48" with no issues whatsoever, and that was a Tartar (County Line) from TSC.

    I don't think I'd listen to anyone at my local TSC about what my tractor can do. There's some good and helpful people there that seem to know about chickens and dogs, but not sure any of them have been on a tractor. Maybe you have a different breed at your TSC.

    I run a 48" gear driven tiller just fine.

    Great to hear! Did you end up shortening and cutting the PTO shaft?
