 Tiller for 2210

Though we are scheduled for 6 inches of snow today, I want to THINK SPRING! I want to buy a tiller for my 2210. Deere makes a nice one but I've heard good things about the Woods tiller as well. Are there other manufacturers I should be looking at? Any tips on using the 3pt tiller on the 2210? What key comparison points should I be watching for? Any help would be appreciated as I'm new to all this.

I've allways liked Land Pride equipment. It's given me good service and their dealership network seems to be well oganized for parts and service. Deere and Woods both make fine equipment too, but I'm just not as famillar with them. They've got a website showing their line of equipment.

 Tiller for 2210

I got my 2210 last spring and bought the Frontier RT1150 tiller with it. I was immediately impressed with both. If the ground has a little moisture in it you can till at max depth on the first pass. The 2210 doesn't even grunt hard. I tried to till up some ground later in the summer when it was too dry. The ground was so hard the tiller wouldn't go more than an inch deep and even the tines of the box blade wouldn't penetrate it. This was sod that had been in place for decades. Then we got a nice rain in Sept. so I waited a day and sure enough it tilled it right up, like powdered black pepper. If you go over a garden that has been worked up before it really does a nice job. My neighbor lady had not tilled her garden for 5 years and I had no trouble doing a nice job on it. The 2210 with this and probably any tiller is pure pleasure to operate. If you have any questions about technique or anything else I'll be glad to help.
Gary

The Woods product (GTC40)seems narrow at only 39" side to side vs. the Frontier (RT1150) at 49". Or should I be looking at the GTC52 which is 51" wide? It says it needs 20-30 HP and the 2210 is only 23 HP.

I'll need to check on Land Pride as well.

Does everyone make their own tillers or is the case of one manufacturer who makes various brands?

John Deere tillers up until 2005 were made by Howard. Now they are made by Sicma.
Maletti currently makes Woods & Bush Hog and made pre-2004 New Holland tillers.
Sicma makes tillers for First Choice, Bush Hog, John Deere, Farm Track (Long)
Maschio makes the Frontier tillers.
If you want a comercial grade tiller at prices below many of the lighter duty chain units you need to look at a CCM Gear drive tiller.

I personally have the Landpride RTA1050 (50"Wink yeah right and of "my toys" this is the one the wife insist will not leave the property. That tiller will make "mosit cake consistency" of the ground and my wife and daughters love jumping into that soil and planting during Spring, no need for a spade, just a little hand pressure and seeds are planted. Regardless of purchase, get something that will cover your tracks, so you will need the 47-50" tiller.

I had a Woods once and it was nice and wouldn't hesitate to own another, but the deal was too good to pass up on this one .

Re: Chain drive vs. Gear drive
From the different threads here regarding tillers, it appears there is a preference for the gear drive. Can anyone explain why? Are they simply more rugged?
thanks,
david

Are the tillers being discussed here OK to use on the 2210? It seems like some are getting out of the bounds of the 2210's HP. How big is TOO BIG?? Also, is the offset on these unit easy to use? Do you just slide the running connections over a bit? How does that work?

JD lists the 647 48" tiller as the right one for the 2210. Anyone using the 647?

Cheers
