    Tiller on a 2 series. Pictures please.

    hello out their, how many fellas on here has rototillers for their 2series tractors. who has theirs with I-match? can un's post some pics with them together. how about ur width, if a good price came along on one. would u foreit a couple inches for the less amount of money. would them couple inches really matter. couldn't I just go over the side that the tire ran over, now I know this only possible on a side shift tiller. I have seen frontier who has this side shift, hardly any other tillers has this, couldn't even tell if jd does, by the pics. I have never owned a 3pt tiller. yeah I have a troy-built bronc, I think that's it name, should be if it ain't, first time I sank them tines in the garden at regular soil, man it took me across the yard flying, so I had to plow it first with the old wheel horse and then use that little broncing jigger. I have spent the entire morning sending e-mails across half the country. so hopefull by tomorrow some of them e-mails will start coming back in with if they sold it or still got it. ok long enough-thanks big jim

    THANKS, I see u had a I-match on, so pretty much all of these newer tiller company's are making them I-match compatible.

    Jim, I would not make the assumption. You still need to do your homework. Mine is a Landpride. I think it is a RTR1258.

    I've also been mulling over a tiller for a few years. Seems like I always get caught-up in the budget (King Kutter) VS. premium (JD, Frontier, Land Pride, Woods) quandary. Then it's also a matter of whether I'd be better off with reverse rotation VS standard forward rotating tines. My property is hilly, rocky and previously wooded so there's every form of obstacle known to man just underfoot. Big rocks, small rocks, roots and god knows what else. On top of that the soil is poor. So, do I use a tiller to loosen and level prior to reseeding and / or preparing a larger garden plot? Just continue to top dress and fill in the sunken, settled areas of my turf? Buy a tiller and go to town or rent a unit as I have in the past? I did purchase a Heavy Hitch ripper to loosen up an area that needed to be rough graded. It did a good job of loosening the soil, breaking subsurface roots and turning up some small rocks. Also got hung up some fairly large rocks that I ended up digging out of burying deeper and below the frost line.

    While we used to have a huge garden we just can't do it anymore. Even if we could start one up again I find that spending $2.5k-$3k on a 3-point tiller would be crazy. Yeah, it would be great for the first tilling in the spring and when done in the fall, but I just can't justify that kind of money for 2-3 hours use a year.

    The tillers are too big to go between the rows unless you make your crop rows 5'-6' apart. If you space your rows ~30" apart all that ground has to be hand weeded.

    Stan,

    Tillers aren't just for gardens. I use mine to do my landscaping and reseeding.
