    Default Which Land pride tiller?

    45hp tractor 36 hp pto

    Will use for max 4 hours per week right now throughout the year for maintaining mx track. Maybe more as farm becomes a reality.

    Both with slip clutch.
    Both 72"

    RTA2072
    Land Pride RTA20 Series Rotary*Tillers
    RTA2570
    Land Pride RTA25 Series Rotary*Tillers

    Don't have pricing yet, but I think the 2570 is more and more heavy duty... but it's lighter weight.

    with the 2072, it has a "carriage" of sorts on top where you can reposition the tiller relative to the pto drive mechanism (if I'm understanding the literature correctly. The 2570 does not have this "feature", but you can offset the tiller 5" to cover tire tracks etc.

    Don't really see the difference between the two. Which one do I want/need and why?

    The 25 series, has a #100 chain drive (oil bath) where the 20 series has #80 (oil bath).

    Hence 25 is suited for higher HP tractors.

    Either will work in your application, it may come down to if you need it offsett or if you need the downpressure on the rear deflector to help manage the smoother surface resultant.

    See if you can test one out or see if someone has them local where you can observe the difference in result.

    Personaly, I'll end up with a "Reverse" rotation tiller, next year, I rented a tiller this year that is forward rotation and as my tractor doesn't have down pressure on the 3 point, It didn't wan't to dig very deep on the first pass, so had to repeat passes many times to get 6" depth.

    Cheers

    Got to get it today... financing program set to end.
    Thanks for your insight.
    How do you know if your tractor 3 point hitch has downward pressure or not?

    I probably "need" the normal rotation because of stump potential I have. That plus the same tiller in reverse rotation is 500 dollars more on a 3200 dollar tiller.

    What is the reason for offsetting a tiller, other than if you have a smaller tiller and want to cover your tracks?

    With a 72" tiller you should not need to offset it. Don't worry about down pressure you don't need it in your case. My preference would be the 2570-6 or better yet the the 3576 series next larger as it will cover more ground for you considering once you have the track tilled it should be easy to retill periodically. The heavy duty tiller has a larger rotor diameter which means it can till deeper. All of these tillers have adjustable shoes to set the depth though.

    In most cases if a tiller is not running deep enough it is because it is being pulled forward too quickly, this makes it climb the wall of hardpack ahead of it.

    Yeah, I saw that on the rotor swing being 2" more. Unfortunately, it's probably out of my price range and since it's designed for "all day everyday" thought it was more tiller than I really need at this point

    The tilling width of the 2072 and 2570 look equal to me, 3576 MAY be 4" wider tilling, so I don't think that should be an issue (unless I'm missing something). 2570 is ballpark 300 more. Hopefully this less expensive one will meet my needs.....

    Any problems there?

    I would think the 2570 is comparable to my deere 673, it ought to work. It would be better to have the heavy duty model though since the tiller and landplane are the big ticket items and will work faster with a larger tractor at a later date. Things like the landscape rake, harrows and so on will work behind anything. So by buying the larger implements where it counts you don't need to upgrade the implements if you move into a larger tractor. Hope that makes sense.

    Dealer doesn't have the one I'm looking for in stock so I might end up with the heavier duty one afterall.
