    Looking for a tiller

    My lawn is in very tough shape and I've been thinking about tilling portions of it over the next 2-3 years and reseeding. Does anyone have experience with the TSC tillers? I didn't want to spend big money on a tiller as I'll have limited use for it after I renovate the lawn.

    Would the TSC option be suitable, or should I spring for a Woods or JD tiller for resale value? The TSC model is currently on sale for $1599 locally.

    I have a Hawkline I got at Bomgaar's and it seems to be made by the same people that build County Line for TSC. I used mine for the same purpose and it worked great. Look at threads I started and it should pop up.

    I have a KK tiller. So far it has worked well. I think KK equipment is sold under a few names.

    Looking for a tiller

    I would venture to guess that my KK tiller, bought from tractor supply will be passed on to my kids one day. And I use mine on my garden and huge deer food plots every year. They are tough gear driven simple machines. I wouldn't waste money on name brand recognition on this implement. Parts are reDily available at TS if you should need them. Only problem is they do not put a good paint job on them. Which can be a good excuse to paint it jd green

    Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    I have seen many times that it is copycats not rebranding. KK is made in the USA, that certainly helped me make the decision.

    Used it last weekend and it performed awesome.

    I have a King Kutter tiller as well as many other King Kutter attachments. I have no complaints. It is built pretty heavy duty. I have yet to bend or break a tine. I have a couple friends who have other brand tillers and they have broke a few times. Parts are easy to get and the price is right.

    I have the XB (orange) version of the King Kutter tiller. Its kinda of a pain to hook up, I have to adjust the 3 point arms to the narrowest position they go in. This version is not quick hitch compatible. If you go the King Kutter rout go with the 48 inch yellow version versus the orange version.

    you mention you wont have much use for it after the lawn is done.....have you thought about seeking a pto tiller out from a rental company? you might be able to rent one for a weekend at a fraction of the cost.

    I have this tiller. It's cat 0 with cat 1 pins. I shimmed the pins out to cat 1 specs so it works with my quick hitch.
