 Need a tiller for my Kubota B7100HST

All,I'm looking for a 3 pt rotary tiller for by B7100. I don't know how wide it can be for this tractor. I was hoping that a 42 to 48 inch model would work.I would appreciate info about brands and how well these things chew through sod.Also, any one have a line on a slightly used tiller?Thanks,Bill

 Need a tiller for my Kubota B7100HST

What I did when looking for a tiller for my B2400HST was to find the maximum weight recommended in the owner's handbook and then search for one within the weight specs but wide enough to cover the rear wheels. I ended up getting a Kuhn and would recommend their web page as a starting place to spec it out. Will it handle sod? ... in a heartbeat. The only problem is that as you till the sod, you bury the seeds that are lying on the surface so it does grow back and need retilling. Mine tilled in the sod, broke up a hardpan layer 4"-6" below the surface and found some buried concrete and rebar which it did a good job of mangling. It's a pretty tough piece of machinery. I started off tilling at about 2", then 4" and then full depth to give a beautiful seedbed. Good luck on your search..

If you cannot handle one that is wider that the tractor, get one that can be offset to cover one of the wheels. It is a liitle more hassle as you need to always go the same direction if you want all the tracks covered. Also a slip clutch rather than shear pin is recommended. Like Frank, I have found a few surprises that have brought the tiller to a quick halt.

 Need a tiller for my Kubota B7100HST

Where are you, Bill? I'll sell you my tiller. Laughing out loud In '95, I bought a new Bush Hog RTS40 tiller for my B7100 (40" although the manual says it actually tills 38"Wink yeah right. At any rate, it was perfect for the B7100, but now I have a B2710 and would like a tiller that's 14" to 22" wider. However, it still serves the purpose. I had it centered on the B7100 and now have it offset to just cover my right tracks on the B2710. I don't know what they sell for now, but in '95 I paid $1,300 for this one. It's one fine machine. Bush Hog products are a little pricey, but good.
