    Default Need advice for rototiller for BX1850

    Please suggest width and make rototiller.

    I purchased a second smaller kubota (Mini-me!) for my orchard and decided to buy a rototiller to go with it.

    The BX1850 has about 14 HP at the PTO. My soil is sandy loam and pretty soft. Even with my very steep hill the L3010 can till going up hill with a First Choice HD 1066 66” rototiller so I think I can push the width slightly on the BX1850.

    4 or 5 years ago when I was looking for a rototiller First Choice was very popular with TBN users. I have absolutely no complaints about mine. Terrific ‘tiller at very good price. Having stated that, I was thinking very hard about going with CCM 42” or possibly a 49” ‘tiller.

    Does anyone have any thoughts? I do live in Oregon and it did take some time to figure out logistics, but Pieter and I did make it work.

    Thanks!

    That is very promising because CCM mediun duty is a Howard knock off via a Spanish Liscense.

    Mine weighs 420 lbs.his will work for a long time. Should do 100% fine!

    When profits go up again, I will be back in the game for a
    4 cyllinder version Grand L...including a 66" Hd CCM update tiller!

    I will be back with a big kubota-but just doing research for now!

    I have a 50" maschio L125 tiller for my BX23. No problems in hard clay. Not sure I would recommend maschio as the tines are wearing pretty fast.
