 Gear or chain driven tiller?

Hi, I'm starting the search for a tiller for my CK35 Kioti. Could someone enlighten me as to the pros and cons of gear or chain driven tillers? Also, what's a "slip clutch"? I'll be using it on no more than 1/2 an acre of garden plot in northern NH. What size should I be considering?
Thanks,
Paul

 Gear or chain driven tiller?

If your tractor doesn't have a slip (= over-running) clutch on the PTO driveshaft, a spinning implement like a mower or tiller could kill somebody by moving the tractor (clutch pedal down or no) until it stops rotating. Costs maybe $70.

Gear is more trouble-free than chain, but would take more to fix if it fails. And you see when the chain is rusty and dry, but if you forget to lube the gearbox there's no reminder.

Size doesn't much matter. With wider, you go slower and shallower at first and could have traction problems on wet or uphill ground, and tillers are heavy so make sure the hitch can lift it. But fastest under good conditions. Smaller is a bit cheaper and easier to store, and may let you go deeper faster. Usually you want it to be wide enough to cover the rear wheel-tracks.

I'd want one with a good dust shield and with the right length driveshaft rather than having to search for one after.

It's part of the tractor, not of the tiller. Most tractors other than low-cost grey-market models have one. If yours doesn't, any tractor dealer can fix you up.
