    Wow Terry that's a 'mean' looking piece of equipment.

    Nice job on the modification.

    I think someone already mentioned a Kuhn. Kuhns are gear drive units. The other thing you can get on some Kuhns is a choice of blades. They have different blades for different conditions. One for heavy soils is a forged point that looks like it would break concrete.

    Kuhn also makes offsetable units which are nice for low horsepower tractors because you don't need to till the entire distance between the outside of the tires to eliminate tire tracks. You can use a smaller tiller offset beyond one tire. I've seen good discounts on Kuhns at JD dealers.

    Never let a good thread die! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img] I just got back from looking at a 5' King Kutter tiller at Orschelns. It's on sale for $1099, usually $1199. I don't know if the higher price than PaulInMi got at TSC is a year's inflation or just the Orscheln difference....they usually aren't the cheapest place around. However they're the only KK dealer in this area, so I'll probably get it there. They're also running a six-month-same-as-cash deal, and I figure I might as well use their money for a while. Anyway, I was reading this thread and realized there was no PTO shaft with clutch on the ones I had looked at. So I called 'em up to make sure. Turns out some less than honest folks walk off with them if they leave them outside with the tillers. Hard to imagine! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    One use I have for the tiller is to get an area ready to plant a screen of hazelnut bushes along our road frontage. I figure to till the strip and cover it with mulch before setting the plants. Hopefully, in a few years the cars zipping by will be less visible from our front yard. I'm also looking forward to tilling the garden without laying myself up for a week like I almost did last year using a Troybilt walk behind. That thing jerked me around like a rag doll, and I weigh...err...uhh..umm...never mind. Let's just say I'm not wasting away.

    Much talk about tillers. I noted that JD only has three point tillers for their compacts versus rotary tiller discussed on this thread. Please excuse this neophyte, but what is the difference and which is one better off with?

    Regards,

    Rob - The "three point" part just refers to the mount. All tillers are three-point-hitch mount, except the hydraulic-powered ones for skid steers, which use a universal mount standard to skid steers.

    The "rotary" part refers to the way the tiller works. It has a shaft running horizontally, with the tines that break up the soil attached to it - you've seen them, I'm sure.

    So, the ones that were being discussed here were all "rotary" tillers and, since they're for three-point hitch tractors, they're all three-point hitch rotary tillers.

    Mine is in the process of being converted to a skid steer mount, but that's another story... [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Does that answer your question?

    Thanks for helping with my utter confusion. So the JD tillers for their 4000 series of tractors are all rotary tillers.

    For some reason I thought there was another type.
