    I've heard that those are a direct copy of a King Kutter and that the same company makes them for Kodiak and some other US distributors. I've heard from dealers that they're shipped to the distributors in the same steel crates like they come off the boat.

    If I was in the market for one, I'd definitely want the reversing feature. I don't see it as an actual tilling benefit, but reverse sure makes cleaning clogged tines easier.

    I kept looking at the picture trying to see the transmission to change rotation with. Then realized you had to flip the gear box to change rotation. Since I have a kingcutter, which is a very good tiller by the way, I am going to go look and see if flipping the gear box will change the rotation on it.

    If iread the instructions correctly to changerotation direction you have to remove the gear box and then switch the tines. How long would this process take one the bolts are covered with dirt, mud, vines, etc.

    Great idea but makes me wonder about the true value in real life conditions.

    Most buyers would set it up for forward or reverse, when they buy it and leave it that way forever or until a different field condition arises. They are not designed to change out ever other day, just to have as a option. Ken Sweet

    Ah, well then that model would be useless to me. I borrowed one a while back that could be reversed "on the fly" so to speak. I thought that's what we were dealing with here - my bad

    Tines sharpened on both sides? Looks like the tine sweep angle would be correct one way and not the other. Do you remember the brand you were using? Ken Sweet
