    Tiller weight for 1025r

    Good morning all,

    I'm looking at two used 48" tillers for my 1025r. A king Kutter xb 48 and a Taylor Way 962 both are close in price. I've found that the 962 is 600lbs is that too much for the 3 point of the 1025r? I've seen in other threads that it was mentioned the two are the same just different names. It seems like the xb is the popular choice have not seen many talk about the Taylor Way. Any info and advice will be greatly appreciated!

    600lbs shouldn't be an issue, however you will need ballast on the front, at least your front end loader. The recommended ballast for FEL work is 600+lbs.

    That won't be a problem. I usually leave my loader on when I am tilling and that provides enough ballast. There are front weight bracket options as well, but that is up to you.

    I recommend the xb for the following reasons. it rotates at a higher rpm than the taylor made and Taylor made back gate will bend if you back up and bind it and the king kutter won't. I have the 54 inch xbx and I can use it without weights and you can make it quick hitch compatible.

    I have experience with the KK 54 inch XB as well. No problem with the weight and 54 is better for covering the wheel width of the tractor. Should only be around 1-2 hundred dollars more.

    I have a 48" Behlen Country tiller. It is an earlier version (no kick stand) than this one at Amazon.
    It weighs 600# so I leave the FEL attached with 5-6 cinder blocks in the bucket.
    They currently list it for 25hp-60hp tractors but I have zero complaints using it behind my 1025r. It is 53" wide but that includes the gearbox. I have no trouble tilling the entire track width of my tractor

    Thanks everyone for the help, based on the answers I went with the xb it seems to be an older model on but saved a good chunk off getting a new one so I can put that money to something else. Figure I'll check and change the oil and grease everything and check the PTO length. And check the slip clutch out. Thanks again for the help

    Looks good for an older unit. Not abused.
