thunderworks said:CCM just shipped an MR190 (72") to me in Kansas. I tilled 8 acres for a prairie grass restoration as well as garden space with it in the last two weeks. The 8 acres was already plowed and disced. The garden is new and was breaking sod . . . works well.

I am gonna get one of their 45" MD models when I get the $$$ and I can get it for 1300 if I pick it up from the shipping company. I can't get anything like that locally for that money.

PBinWA said:Better yet, use that fancy grapple and just lock the tiller to on, grab it with the grapple and use the tractor to push it around!

I have a video of me geting tossed around trying to break sod with it. I wish I knew how to post it here.
My dad used to have me plow the garden with it when I was 12 and about 75 pounds. Twice I hit rocks and the handlebars kicked up and broke ribs.

Glowplug said:. . .I don't care what you call it. But a push type rototiller is a pain in the *****. It probably doesn't help too much that mine has a slightly bent shaft. I was out trying to till our vegetable garden yesterday evening. Probably got a couple thousand square feet done. It almost killed me!! The tiller is probably about 30" wide. I DEFINATELY want to get a 3ph rototiller now! I just wish they weren't so darned expensive. I really would like to get something about 7' wide to cover the rears. The big names like Kuhn and Howard are like $7,000 minimum. I've looked at some of the "grey market" tillers, but even they are about $3,000 is that size. It's virtually impossible to find used rototillers. I wish I had a neighbor that owned a dependable 7' PTO-driven rototiller.
I guess I don't really have a question. Just whining a little.
