Been looking at this tiller, and it really looks overbuilt.Will be useing it on a TC35DA. How much does this monster weigh? I thought about leaving it on for a fel counterweight as well.

The King Kutter 72" tiller weighs around 780 LBS.

Thats what I wanted to hear.Do you think added weight would benifit this tiller? I'd like 1000# or so on the rear,and 300# more would be easy to add.

If you want more weight added for rear ballest maybe you could add more weight.
But for tilling extra weight is not needed.
I tilled a couple gardens for co-workers of mine yesterday evening and had forgotten just how well my KK tiller works.
Gave it a fresh coat of paint today.

(Or anyone else)
I will buy a KK soon. Should of bought the darn thing last year!!!!Was playing the game hopeing steel would come down but looks like I lost that one! Oh well?
Question for all?
I have the TC40 (35 pto) Would really like to get the 72" model but could live with a 60". I see the hp ratings for these two are spit right at the mid section of my hp
25-40 and 35-50. Any suggestions? Do you think the 72" would be a bit much for the tc40? It would be nice to have it cover my tracks. Personelly from my experiance with the tc40 it is more than beefy and probably has the poer to do the larger of the two but I have NO PRACTICAL experiance with this tiller nor do I know anyone that has one. Any help would be appreciated!
I can say this. I bought the woods 6ft mower last year and was cutting 4' tall timothy and weeds with it. Absolutely NO problem at all infact I was getting a good cut in mid range but 2nd gear. I had heard from many that I may be pushing it with that cutter but my dealer talked me into the larger. He was right! Fact is that the boys in our test and training center told me that it would be too large for the tc40! Boy it sure pays to ask the right guys cause I told my dealer that and he laughed. Infact to tell you the truth (and dont rip on the dealer cause he is the best IMO) When he delivered the cutter with the tractor I was floored! I had been waffleing between the two sizes 72" and 60". I had told him to bring the 60" (which has a pin and not a slip clutch) This guy (my dealer) pulled up after a 90 mile drive with the 72". He told me that he could not in good faith sell me the 60". He said that I would not be happy with it. I know he made more money on the larger but I really do feel he did it because of the fact that he knew what I was planning to use it for, he knew my operations and the size of land I have, he knew it would not cover my tracks and he knew my tractor had the guts for this cutter. After the initial shock that I was in because he had the guts to make that decision for me, I was real glad! ( I really wanted the bigger better cutter but was cheaping out) After I ran it! I was totally happy and 100% glad he made that executing decision for me Laughing out loud>
SO here I am asking you guys for some more help. Any ideas or opinions?
Thanks alot

In my opinion with 35 PTO HP you should be fine with the 72" tiller.
With a gear tractor the size of tiller it will run depends on HP, and gearing (how slow is your lowest gears).
With 35 PTO HP, if your lowest gearing is less than 1 MPH you should fine. The slower the tractor is geared, the less HP you will need to run the tiller.

The TC40 has a 12x12 gear box andthe ranges are awesome. From highway speeds to the slowest of slow (actually way to slow is the lowest gear. I can't believe I was so stupid as to NOT buy that tiller last year when I knew I was needing one! Last time I checked the standard sale price was $1300 ($1295) and the normal price is around $1400. I could of bought this tiller last Feb. for $1095 on sale but have seen it for less so I was waiting for the steel market to stabalize. If you remember last year I had a post about steel prices in march! Asking if any thought the price would drop again Laughing out loud. DAHH!! I did not live by my old moddo of buy what you can today because tomarroo you may not afford it. Guess tomarroo has finally come for me and I am with out that tiller. Laughing out loud

You will like those really slow gears for tilling. It will till better and the slower speeds will take less power to run the tiller at full depth.

Sounds like a GOOD job for the kid? Laughing out loud After mowing about 2 acres last year I handed the controll to him. Fun for awhile but gets old fast. Is there a depth controll on the tillers? The deeper I go the more rocks that need to be picked. I only need 5-6"

Guys,
Last fall I was looking at a LandPride 60" I think and the price tage was around 2600.

The KK 72" is around 1400??????
And this is a nice built tiller not some kind of cheapo?

Sounds too good to be true!
