 Tiller for BX-22

I've recently purchased a new Bx-22 and LOVE it! Now I'm ready to find the right tiller to go behind it. The dealer tells me a 60 inch isn't too big and he is recommending a Landpride 50 inch. Does anyone have any idea how big is too big? I don't want to stress the tractor too much.

The types of soil you have makes the most difference. Kubota recommends a 42 as max. I've sold 38" to the 42" with these tractors with good results. If you have clay stay away from the 50" definitly!

I got kubota's B40C tiller for my BX22 and I love it! My soil is clayish with lots of stone(virgin soil). I take it slow and when I hit a rock I lift it, turn around and put the loader to work. It goes though my garden(previously tilled) like butter and perfectly prepares the soil in one pass, and in these areas a larger unit wouldn't hurt. But for me the "40" is more manageable in the virgin areas. It's your call. Good luck!

I had a 44" First Choice with my BX2200. I wouldn't want any more tiller. Several times I would bog it down. The Georgia clay is very hard at times.

I got taken for a ride when I bought a CCM tiller. No doubt the tiller is well made but the one I had would not (by design) till deeper than 2 inchs. the frame bottomed out. just a crappy design. When I attempted to contact mr carter he told me to drop dead. I ended up giving it away. Bought a king kutter and never looked back.

That is sad. Who is Mr. Carter?

Do realize this thread is about 6 years old. If you will look at the date right above where your name is it shows the dates posted. That does not take away from your experience and hopefully your story will protect someone else. KT OH, welcome to TP. Keep sharing.

[/b] I find the validity of your charges somewhat lacking. The price of a MR110 was $850 back in 2003 and now you are spreading your dissatisfaction 6 years later. Have you ever thought some must be wrong maybe not set up correct?. I can guarantee you that your PTO shaft was too long restricting the tiller from full penetration into the soil. There are hundreds of that model tiller working today. Why is it this is the only complaint we have ever herd like this? I will guarantee you, that if you offered that tiller for sale on tractorpoint.com, you would have gotten at least what you paid for it. The current price for the MR110 42" tiller is $1,800.

sounds kinda like the rubbish the seller tried to feed me when I expressed that the tiller was a piece of crap. One excuse after another. I could take the skids off and the tines didn't extend more than 2 inch's below the tiller body and I really didn't want to drag the drain plug on the gear box thru the dirt to maybe get 2-1/2 inch's of till depth. the tiller was designed poorly, period...and it came with ZERO customer service... DROP DEAD was the return policy.
No sir, PTO shaft was fine. Tiller was designed inferior. tines didn't extend down more than 2 inches from the bottom of the tiller frame. (frame dictated depth) it was impossible for the tiller to till any deeper. I bought it from carter and carter up in Tennessee from a guy named mark carter, (if my memory serves me correctly) There was no customer service and no attempt to make it right. I wasted $1200.00
I posted pics on tractor bynet proving the flawed design but since that site endorsed the CCM brand they deleted my pics. Oh well, you screw folks and it comes back to bite you. I'm not saying they are all like that but mine certainly was. Hopefully no one else gets taken like I did.


I would of never sold that flawed tiller to anyone else. I got taken for a ride but that does not mean I'm gonna do someone else the same way. that's why I gave it away. I could not of sold that tiller in good conscience.
Now on the King Kutter tiller that replaced the CCM I get 6 inch's of tilth opposed to the 2-1/2 inch's of tilth from the CCM. the skids that came with the CCM didn't even work on the tiller, I had to modify them to fit. I cant remember the exact rubbish I got from carter and carter when I mentioned that to them.
