    Default Thinking of buying a 48" King Kutter Tiller

    Hi, new to the forum but have been reading articles for several months.. I have a kubota BX22 and would like a KK tiller to till about 2 acres. My local farm store carries the KK line, but the tillers he has are brown and not the tan that the KK site shows.. Does anyone know anything about the brown KK tillers?

    I like my orange one .
    It's a KK 48'' and covers both tire tracks.

    Unless I am wrong....KK offers two different 48 inch models....the yellow HD model made of Chineese components and the Orange unit made by SICMA.

    The orange model would be more suited for your model kubota.

    mcb,

    King Kutter makes two 48" tillers:

    1) TG48 KK II 20 -35 HP, 600lbs.

    2) TC48 KK XB up to 25HP, 425 lbs

    My understanding is that the TG48 KKII is made in Ohio, while the TC48 XB (for sub compacts) is made in China.

    I guess my real question is why am I seeing a brown tiller and not a tan or orange one.. Is brown a color from the past or is there something up.. Also I thought it was interesting that the cost is 1699.00 here in Seattle.

    The King Kutter that I saw at my local tractor supply is a King Kutter II 48" and it is Brown in color.. Was a bit suspicious so thought I would ask this forum if anyone else has seen that color of King Kutter II's

    I just sent an email to KK sales asking about the brown color. I'll post their response if I get one.
