I am still shopping tillers for my 1025r. There seem to be a ton of different brands, colors, and sizes. I am seeing a bunch of 4 footers that look barely used. It looks like price isnt so much an issue. Im thinking there may be some light 5 footers that the 1025 will handle but I like the idea of a heavier, 48 inch for this machine. Obviously green paint adds a lot ro the cost but Ive found a nice 1149 that from the pictures, appears barely used, a 2015. It is at the JD dealer where I bought the tractor, almost accross feom my house, but at a different branch, 100 miles away. I assume I can get ut delivered there for nothing anf drive over to pick it up on the tractor. I was able to stop at TSC this morning and looked at the yellow tiller there. 6 tines, gear driven and HEAVY. With the discount there, it would be $1260, the same as the listed ASKING price on the 1149. Between the 2, is it worth trading gear drive and a warantee for a chain, green paint, a local dealer, and the ability to offset? It also looks like the 1149 may be slightly lighter. Any thoughts?
