    1025 rototiller

    So it took me a while since I'm new but i think i figured out how to post my ?.
    I have a 1025. I found a 48" tiller from a John Deere 430 garden tractor. Will that fit my 1025 and will it hold up? there is no slip clutch, but clutches are like $100. I am thinking this tiller should be worth under $1000 does that seem appropriate? I do not have the money for a JD 647, as I only have a small garden once/twice a year. Would I be better to just buy a new 48" tiller from TSC for a few hundred more than this used one? Thanks for the help.

    I would buy the TSC one in my opinion. How old is the one off the 430? That tractor hasn't been made since 92. Is the one from TSC a King Kutter? Just my opinion

    A model 48 from a 430 requires a 2000 rpm rear pto.

    Yeah what rydplrs said. You want a tiller that runs at 540RPM speed. And I echo the TSC/KingKutter tiller recommendation, it is a nice unit for the money.

    So looks like the used one is out. TSC carries a couple different Countyline tillers. red one is $1499 (2122654) yellow one $1399 (2122515) does not sound like much different. Looks like either would fit the 1025. Anyone run one of these? Thanks for the help

    I run a 4' KingKutter II, which is similar to the CountyLine. It is offset so that your tracks are covered. The tiller is a great size for the 1025/6R. It does a terrific job and will leave a great seedbed. I think for general homeowner use, it can't be beat for the price.

    TD1025,


    One question, is your tractor equiped with a Quick Hitch in the rear? The reason I ask is... The red TSC and orange KingKutter tillers are sized for a Cat 0, 3-point hitch. While both yellow TSC and KingKutter tillers have Cat 1 pin spacing.

    If you don't have a Quick Hitch it's not a problem, just adjust your 3-point to fit arms to fit. It's a little more work to convert your Cat 0 tiller to fit a Cat 1 Quick Hitch. One of the members here, timmarks, has a YouTube channel with lots of tractor videos on it. He shows how to make the orange KingKutter Xb tillers fit on a Quick Hitch.

    FYI, my local farm & fleet store had a couple of the orange Xb tillers on close out before winter at $1300... I'm kicking my self for not getting one then...

    Good Luck!

    When I bought my KK tiller in 2014, Rural King had a sale in March of that year with some pretty good savings.

    For what it's worth, I run the yellow tiller on my 1026R. 10 years ago (man, does time fly), when I bought mine, they were much cheaper, right around $1000 bucks IRRC. I waited until spring and had some birthday cash (yes I still got bday cash) and asked about a discount on the 48" I had been eyeing all winter, as it had sat outside. They gave me 10% off. There might have been another sale too? Anyway I walked out of there with that tiller for around $700
