 L3010 / rototiller use

Have L3010 with GST / just ordered a tiller for it from my Kubota dealer. Has industrial tires so I went with a 60" with offset feature to shift unit outside of tire track on one side.
Question I have relates to speed while in use.
Kubota shows an optional set of "creeper" gears for the GST transmission with a note that this is good for "deep tilling". I questioned the salesman about the forward speed while using the tiller on my unit without creeper gears and was told I would be O.K. with tranny in lowest gear while at PTO operating speed 2670 rpm
Factory literature says forward speed (at PTO rpm) is just under 1 mph. Creeper speed is .11 or .15 mph - a lot slower.
I am not necessarily doubting the salesmans advice however there seems to be a LOT of difference in forward speed between the two setups. Anyone have any thoughts or personal experience with the 3010 GST and a tiller ?
Anything I should know before I start ripping up the countryside ?

thanks in advance for any input

bob

 L3010 / rototiller use

I have an L2900 GST,that is an earler model of your 3010. My GST has 8 gears I think you have more. When I use my 5ft off set rear tiller I find 1st gear a little too slow at times. A lot of variables are involved here. When the soil is dry it's possible to over till which pulverizes the soil, then when the first rain comes it erodes pretty bad. I would never till ground that has not been plowed before. In my area the soil tends to have some clay in it, that would be alot different than sandy soil. My tiller has 6 tines per flange it seems to work better than 4 tines per flange. A 3pt tiller is not designed to till real deep, if you want depth try a shank tiller along with 3pt tiller. Before I got my Bota I had MF135, 1st gear on that tractor was pretty fast compared to the Bota. I would go over the ground twice and it did a good job. With the soil conditions where I live I would not spend the extra money for the creeper gear.

You will be fine with the set-up you have coming. The slower speeds are way to slow for normal garden tilling.
