/ 6' Tiller #1
I'm curious if anyone out there can point me in the direction of a good 3 point tiller that can handle red clay and go a good 8" deep
Most likely either the WD-45 Diesel or John Deere 5400.What tractor do you propose to power the tiller?
That may be a little overkill for my needs. This will pretty much only be to prep gardens in the spring.Every model from Northwest Tillers can handle red clay and churn earth 8" deep.
Tiller widths from 48".

Yeah, HST is a must have to be able to creep slow enough.For 25 years I've been running a 6' KingKutter in heavy clay with 30 pto hp. Breaking sod is slow go, but I have HST and can creep along. It covers the rear tires, that's what I wanted. I don't regret going with a 6' tiller.
