 KingKutter vs. Landpride

I need to buy a tiller, and i am trying to decide between a kingkutter II or a landpride 1558. About a $600.00 difference. I do have some landpride equip. and i love it, but the king kutter is cheaper, heavier, and has more tines.I guess you could go up to a 20 or 25 seies landpride for more tines and more weight, but with more money. I have done alot of tilling (at work) with other tillers, all seem to be about the same to me. I have a dealer for both very close. Im not too concerned about gear vs chain(should i be), more ease of hookup and weight of the unit. In a few years the tiller will be used for comercial work so quality is an issue, but so is price!! Any expeirence with this is more than appreciated!

 KingKutter vs. Landpride

Dave,

I have a Land Pride 1558 tiller and have used it in my garden. It worked great and have had no problems with it. I like the slip clutch feature. For the money, it is as good or better than the John Deere tillers. I don't have any experience with the King Cutter tillers. I usually see that brand at Tractor Supply Center. You won't go wrong with the Land Pride tiller.

I am in the pre-retirement stage so I spend a fair amount of time investigating competing brands looking for real value and quality. Bought a KK box blade last year. My dealer also sells Landpride. He said that quite honestly the only difference was "fit and finish." In the case of my box blade this meant that some of the fit up was just a smidgen ragged and the welds showed some spatter. That mattered not since I wasn't buying a car just gear to level my field and driveway. I like the KK a lot.

My 2cents.
For $600 I would go for the LP unit. I have alot of there equipment, and only have a KK box blade & rake. I would really like to trade my BB in for a LP, I don't think I would bend the LP. I know nothing about KK tillers. Alot of folks like them. For me when I need parts LP delivers fast. I have tryed to get teeth for my KK rake were I bought it, it takes for ever.
y first tiller was a 15-58 it did a great job for me. I now have a 25-70 I like it alot more. Get the one you feel will be the best for the long run.

CCM MR160 tiller Is Gear driven, Kubota Orange and heavier built than both the LP or KK. At $945 NEW it's a much better value.

Thanks for the input, but im curious now about ccm's. What about parts and shiping, i dont have a dealer near me for a ccm. Everytime you need a part you have to pay for shipping? I am worried about parts for kk as well, i know i will be on a job and need someting, chances are my lp dealer will have it on hand or can get it quick, right? Anybody else have a long wait for kk parts?

Whatever tiller you get DO NOT LET THEM GIVE YOU A PTO SHAFT THAT IS HOLLOW ON THE MALE SHAFT SIDE. IT NEEDS TO BE SOLID STEEL. A HOLLOW SHAFT WILL TWIST IN 2 PIECES JUST LIKE A PIECE OF LIQUORICE. On a follow-up note, the PTO shaft that came with the tiller was intended for sprayers and fertilizers as it was labeled on the PTO shaft. A light duty PTO shaft intended for a sprayer IS NOT what you need for a tiller.

Dave, the CCM is built like an anvil. I would just buy a few extra blades when I buy the machine. As long as the shipping is reasonable, I think you would be way ahead.

 KingKutter vs. Landpride

well, i have baught the kk tiller a few weeks ago, and i am very impressed. The only problem now is i am out of places to till up!!! I have tilled about two acres so far, some for garden, some for new lawn, and I love the machine. The slip clutch works great, and it tills very deep. I run my 2 bottom over it first of course. I hit a huge rock (2x3x1) and the slipclutch worked great. It leaves a very good finish, even when wet or sod. Very easy to hook up on my tractor. The finish is not much to be desired(paint) but the unit is solid. I am wondering if landpride isnt pricing themselves out of the market. No offense, i have lp equip to and i love it as well. But im sick of paying out the nose for it!
