    Not sure what dimension you are refering to but the King Kutter customer service people are pretty knowledgable and can probably get you the information. Phone number is on their website as I recall.

    $1649 is a great price for the six footer. I just paid $1749 including a $100 discount about 10 days ago in NH. Where are you located?

    Steve, there are 9 cutting "spools" with 6 tines each on the 72" tiller. That's 54 total cutting tines. I have not put a ruler to my KKII, but I'd bet the diameter from bladetip to bladetip is probably around 18". It could be less, but you have the hub the tines are bolted to and each tine's length to consider. That's a big diameter. Also, each of the 9 cutting spools is rotated a few degrees from the one next in a spiral so that at any one instant only one or two tines are cutting and operation is smoothed out.

    Now you have me curious to see what the diameter is, so I'll measure it later today and post back on what I find out.

    Just measured my tiller. The diameter is 16" from tine-tip to tine-tip.

    I was looking at a photo and it looked like the blade tip to tip was very small/short, And since it was 120 miles to the store I figured someone on the forums could answer my question. Now that i know that, I will head down to the mills fleet farm in minnesota and pick one up tomorrow. And by the way the sale price this week is 1549 looking good and thanks to jinman and others for the info

    Yeah,well if you'da asked how deep they till it woulda been alot easier.

    Put your skids shoes about all the way up. First pass you might go 2-4 inches,second pass,you might be down to 6 inches,third pass you should be at about 8 inches,depending on your dirt,might need another pass.

    And adjust that slip clutch like book says,and fill it full of gear oil and grease it.well not full of gear oil,what the book says,mine came empty.
