    Default Howse Reversing Tiller

    Howse 3-Point Rotary Tiller 54in. Width, Model# RTC54-R | Category 1 Cultivators Tillers| Northern Tool + Equipment

    I'm having trouble understanding how the rotation can be reversed and wondering if someone can explain it. It says that the "A-frame and gearbox assembly can be reversed". I can see how that reverses the rotation but it seems that the tractor would then be attached to the opposite side of the tiller thus cancelling the "reversal". What am I missing?
    And "while we're at it" what are the pros and cons of reverse rotations tillers where the tine rotation is trying to pull the tractor backwards instead of pushing it forwards?
    I'm looking at this Howse on CL. Howse Heavy Duty 3 Pt Tiller 61"

    You also flip the gear box. Four bolts but you have to take the drive shaft out to do it (two more bolts).

    The reverse rotation is great if you want real "fluffy" soil for a vegetable garden but this is slow. If you are doing anything large, you want the forward rotation. It would take three passes with forward rotation to get the conditioning one pass would do with reverse rotation.

    Thanks for clarifying that.
    Does anyone have a feel for whether my kubota B9200 would handle the 61" tiller advertised on CL? (see post #1 above)
    The B9200 weighs in at about 2600 lbs with the FEL and has 22.5 engine HP and 18.0 PTO HP.
    I believe the tiller weighs about 750 lbs.
