I use a forward rotation tiller with slip clutch and 6 tines/rotor with chain drive. This is a Deere 673 72" width and it does a great job for me, I have hit some large rocks and on a couple of occasions has stopped the tiller but no harm done. What small stumps that were missed in clean up the forward rotation will climb over without damage. in most cases the forward tine rotation will climb over an obstacle whereas the reverse tine will hang up. For hire i would use the forward rotation.
I know what you mean. One neighbor I till for I can only do 3 sides. The garden is about 100 feet long, and 30 feet wide. The long passes pull the dirt to one end of the garden.Quote:
