    Rotary Tiller ?

    I'm looking to buy a Rotary Tiller 3 point 5 or 6 foot.
    There so many to choose from I'm lost. This is what I'm going to use it for.
    I have a land that I been moving sod and dirt from one place to another..

    Now I want to use a tiller to grind up the top soil and then move it to my extended lawn. It beats buying 6 truck loads of top soil when I have it in my back yard.

    When I'm done the place were I took some of the top soil from will become a food plot for the deer.

    I would like a used Tiller but can't find one.

    So if I have to get new $2000 would be my limited to spend.
    I have a TSC by my house, John Deere, and Woods dealer all close by. Then there everything Attachment for on line.
    3033R, HST, 3SVC, 60" heavy bucket with replaceable blade, H165 loader, Trans and engine heater, 60" tow behind mower.
    hydraulic top link, Line kit, 72" hydraulic power angle plow, JD pallet forks, 60" box blade, 60" scraper,
    72" rear rake, Homemade rock bucket, Post hole digger.Piranha Tooth Bar, Ballast box, rear chains,

    I really like my 5' Tarter from TSC. I also hear the King Kutter is a nice unit too, available at Rural King. Both are under your $2k budget.

    Here is one that is on Craigslist near Harrisburg, PA. The ad says $1900.00. I see you are from Hudson Valley, NY. That's driveable.

    I did a quick search for Taylor Way tiller. Found the $1900.00 isn't a very good price for a used tiller. Here is a new one for not much more.
    Thought it would be good to throw this out there. Might be a good negotiating tool!!

    I am very happy with my Hawkline by Behlen Country tiller on my 1025r.
    It was only $1400 new for the 48" model but that was a clearance sale.
    I tilled up a quarter acre of alfalfa field the other day without a hiccup.

    I also did a price check. The $1900 plus my drive was to much for that unit. Thanks for the help.

    I was tractor supply and the guy there said I should get a bottom plow and a Disc harrow. Or the disc harrow over the rotary tiller.
    Because it would do the job faster for what I want to do. The rotary tiller will work but slow but it will do a better job of making the dirt more spreadable. Now I'm more confused.
    I did like the 5 foot TSC Tiller it was $1599.

    I disagree with the TSC sales associate, unless you are looking at loosening up 4-5 acres of land. For a couple of acres or less, the tiller will be the only implement you would need. You would spend twice the amount of money going with a plow and disc, and not get as good a result. You can actually go quickly with a tiller as long as you don't want a really fine loose soil. I did some work for a friend this weekend leveling their round pen. I tilled the high side and moved the dirt to let low side. I didn't need real fine loose soil, so I ran the tiller quickly over the areas that needed to be knocked down, then scooped it up. I leveled that 60' round pen in 2.5 hours and had over 18" of slope to level.
