 Rototiller?

Need some advice. I have 3 acres of open land which is full of dead weeds that I want to tear up in preparation for a new lawn. Which implement is going to work best in tearing up the soil/weeds? Is a 3pt rototiller going to take forever to clear the whole area?

Chris, Use a bottom plow first, then a rototiller. Pick all the goonies that you can firts, cuz they raise hell with the tiller. Don't forget to do a soil analysis first, and put all your basics including lime on first. You have to get those down into the soil cuz they don't migrate well. It may take you about a week of steady work after work to get it done, depending on the tiller size. You will be very pleased with the results, and the new grass will love you. If you just use one of these rock rakes or Rock Hounds, you'll only loosen about 2 inches. Grass loves at least 6 inches to be moved. Helps the roots grow easily, and moisture to be sucked up. Worked great for me. Hope this helps.

I'm getting ready to do about the same thing to an old field about 40 yds by 100 yds and I'm going to plow first and then roto-till. I was wanting to know if I should spray the field first to kill all the weeds? Should I lime it first or after plowing and roto-tilling?

You really should get some assistance ID-ing the weeds and come up with a management plan based upon what you have. Most non-agressive annual weeds can be tilled under, but some perennial species have tuberous or fiberous roots which will resprout even worse after being tilled or cut up. If you do decide to spray, its safest to just go with a herbicide that is not activated or stored in the soil. Round-up works well and will kill most vegetation if sprayed when the vegetation is green. Then the Round-up will dissipate within a short time, and has no effect on the soil or seeds, so you can then plant right away

I just tilled 7 acres to plant coastal bermuda grass on this past weekend. It took about 14 hours with a 5 ft tiller. The tiller leaves the soil nice and level. A plow will not. Did a good job but broke 14 tines on rocks.

Next time I will probably use the scarfiers on a boxblade to rip the soil first before tilling. That will get the rocks out. Plowing sure makes a big mess to clean up.

The scarfiers just rip the soil without making big clods out of it like a plow does.
