    You can always take the tines off of the outside hubs if the 5' proves too much on your soil, converting the 5' to a 4' effective width tiller.

    Good decision. I think you will be much happier with the 48" especially when you get into some harder ground.

    Life is easier when you plow around the stumps.

    I go along with BukitCase and 6011Artist that you want to cover your wheel tracks if at all possible. I make a few bits of my own equipment and the wheel track width (never altered) determines the design.

    I think you and your machines are going to be pretty beaten up tilling a pasture. Plow first and even then your tiller is too big for your tractor. i have a 26 hp tractor and a 5 ft tiller and know I'm pushing my machine too hard.

    A 3pt hitch tiller needs about 4 to 4.5 HP per foot of width in most soils... so I would say you'll be OK. I sure wouldn't want any more tiller than that though. Like others have said, you might have to limit the depth on the first pass.

    If you can get the tiller to try out, I'd say go for it.

    I have a 16 HP kubota diesel tractor and a 39 inch tiller. It's right at the margin of what that tractor can handle.

    My kubota L2800 manual put the limit on a tiller at 48" and that is what I got. A King Kutter 48 and it is offset to cover the right wheel. I can till at max depth in pasture type ground, but it covers the tines in grass and roots and after that I'm just beating the ground. I looked around and found a small breaking plow (1950's Ferguson AO two bottom for $175)and that made it easy.

    If a wire wasn't shorted it wouldn't work. What you have is an intermittent open!

    Electronics is smoke and magic. If you let the smoke out of something it doesn't work anymore - the magic is getting the smoke back in.
