    Hey Titanic, I've been check on tillers also. Woods Tillers are saying the 40 inch model, and Landpride is saying 32 inch to 58" model. This is good for a tractor between 20hp-25hp. The 7500 is in that range I think. I hope this helps. Good Luck, and let me know if you get a great price somewhere. Kent

    Titanic, buy the size that is just as wide as (or the next size wider than) the outside width of your rear tires.

    Just looking a tillers today at the Natl. Farm Show in Louisville (what a show). If you don't want to spend the cash to get one that is the width of your tires, make sure that you get one that you can offset to cover one tire track. Of the several that I looked at, bueler-Farm King seems to be an excellent unit, priced competitively and built very well. It also fits the "offset" provision that I am looking for. Just for the record, I haven't used any of them, yet.

    Titanic,
    I have a KK 60" that I use with my B7500HST. The tractor handles it with no problem.
    However, I have soft soil and the tiller is very heavy, almost 700lbs. When I was shopping
    for it a year ago, most places sold it for $999.

    this is the worst advise to give someone learning about tractors. You need to buy the size of tiller that your tractor can control. The idea of buying the tiller the same width as your tractor tires is not only wrong but very unsafe. Unsafe in that the tiller will push the tractor all over the place, hard on 3p system. A one dealer told me only people interested in repairs will over size their equipment for the tractor they have. Manufacturers give the size guide to keep people from damaging the tractor. Use a little common sense and follow people who have to stand behiond their words( the people who privide the warrenty). Everytime I read the statment of buy a tiller to cover your tracks I laugh because I know I am reading a response from someone with little experience. Sorry if this is hard sounding but some people are asking for input, at least give them smart input.

    You cannot take all recommendations in the owners manual as gospil. One example is weight recommendations for a Backhoe for my machine is appromitately 600#'s, when the BH the manufacturer offers is over 800 #'s.
    I do read my manuals and sometimes I push certain limits, but other times I would not go to the published limits, because I have commen sense.
    I like this forum because we can get REAL WORLD advice,(whether we use it or not). This REAL WORLD advice in combination with manufacturer recomendations and Common Sense equals Knowlege.

    What ever tiller you get make sure that parts will be available. In my area we change the tines ever 3-4 years. Also make sure you can cover at lease one rear tire. I found that most of the tillers are made in Italy. I bought a Gearmore (63" for a L3450), and it was made in Italy, along with the replacement tines.

    I don't think so, Dan.

    <font color=blue>You need to buy the size of tiller that your tractor can control</font color=blue>

    Agreed.

    <font color=blue>Unsafe in that the tiller will push the tractor all over the place</font color=blue>

    I certainly disagree. It may try to push the tractor forward a little, but the simple solution is to put the tractor in low range, 4WD, and for that to be unsafe would require a very inexperienced or ignorant operator.

    <font color=blue>Everytime I read the statment of buy a tiller to cover your tracks I laugh because I know I am reading a response from someone with little experience</font color=blue>

    Yep, I guess your right; I only used a tiller wide enough to cover my tracks for 4 years (on a B7100), and now that I have a wider tractor, I have the tiller offset to cover the track on one side only, but only because I don't want to spend the money to trade up to a bigger tiller that would be so much better. And it so happens that everyone else I know personally uses a tiller wider than their rear tread, and I've never heard a single complaint about their tillers being too big.

    <font color=blue>at least give them smart input</font color=blue>

    Agreed again. I think you should. Incidentally, just what size tiller are you using and/or recommending for Titanic?

    Thanks guys for your input . It looks like a 50" tiller would be the largest i would what to put on the B-7500
    . I have looked at many tillers online and have noticed some tillers to be close to 100 lbs heavier than others. same length of course. One would have to guess that the manufacturer has used a heavier gage steel. Bird I agree with you. I would not buy a tiller that would not cover my tracks and i'm sure a 50' tiller
    is wide enough for the b7500. I have read many of your posts keep them coming.
    Steelfan have you found any good deals on tillers.? I know you just bought the TC21D Have fun.
