wouldn't purchase this again

"The design for the teeth is simply not efficient. I didn't mind installing the teeth the first time but I've reinstalled all teeth at least once and in some cases several times. I am using it to break new rows in a pasture and I understand losing a tooth or two to a rock. However, even in relatively "rock free" areas, the teeth constantly work loose and the bolts shear off. I've spent over 30% of the cost of the tiller in teeth alone and have only had the implement for one year. Good price but wasn't a good deal. My neighbor has a different manufacturer's model and he doesn't have any of the issues I have had."

Good Machine

"I have used this tiller to work up a garden and flower bed in new ground. I went over it twice and it made a well tilled and soft bed. I had to shorten the PTO coupling shaft to get it to fit on my tractor, but that was not a problem. The instruction manual's grammer was not very good but I could understand it. The tiller itself worked great and was a joy to use. It took the work out of working up the garden. Good solid construction."

An item for the field or the arena

"This is an outstanding item to work up a field for planting. It is also great for working an arena to create good even soft ground. Going over the ground one time with the rototiller replaced trips with a ripper, a disk and a harrow reducing both cost and time required."

Good and bad
December 7, 2011
"The manual is unnecessarily complex, but it was fairly straight forward to assemble. On my B7200 tractor, the shaft has to be very short - and therefore it is difficult to mount on the 3pt. After just a few uses, I've lost a number of tines, and, some simple grass wrapped around and broke one of the gear seals. A lot of the metal looks like it is from recycled tillers. Overall, it does its job, but is not suitable for heavy use."
