 Rotary tiller

I have been searching for a rotary tiller for my L1501 diesel, new or used in the greater Kansas City area to no avail. Any help?

What do you mean by a rotary tiller? A "rototiller" as they're more commonly called perhaps?

Or are you referring to a "power box blade" or "power rake" which is sort of like a high-speed rototiller and box blade that can angle---more commonly known by the brand as a "Harley rake" or sometimes as a "soil preparator"?

errrrr? The smartest? I've been called a lot of things...

Anywho, they mount like any other 3-pt implement with a PTO drive, and they are also made for skid steers. Though, there are guys who use them on skid steers they are not the machine of choice (mine is 3-pt on a NH TC-33D) reason being, to use it properly you have to drive the skidsteer backward, which is like painting yourself into a corner. With the 3-pt version and the (caster) depth wheels removed you can back right up to a wall or obstacle, drop it, and go forward. They are pricey for what it is---a rotating 6" x 6' tube with 1-1/2" tall carbide bullet-shaped teeth in holders welded to it in a spiral pattern so that only a few teeth are engaged in the ground at any given time. (Picture a Dremel tool or die-grinder with a rotary rasp tip). I use mine to rejuvenate our mile-long private gravel road. I also use it like a rototiller, which it's not really designed for but it works. Since the tube can power-angle as you draw it over the soil, it can windrow either way. If you leave it straight and adjust the side wings it won't windrow but will throw the ground up material ahead of the rotating tube like a rolling ocean wave. I was using a Galion road (motor) grader to maintain the road, but I found that took a lot of time, was hard to turn around and negotiate turns (but the 3-cyl, 2-stroke, supercharged Detroit diesel sounds so cool). Plus it would only scrape off the crushed stone in a windrow that I would have throw back. And since it only could take down a few inches at a time pot holes took many passes to loosen the area around it enough to obliterate the hole. The power rake will literally grind in place partially frozen, hardpacked, crushed stone to a depth of 0-6 inches in a single pass. As it grinds it, it also mixes it and throws it back down to be ground again. The result is fluffy, homogeneous material. I then use a regular box scraper to level it out. The old timers on the road were beside themselves when they saw me using the grader since that was what they used when they put it it 30 years ago. But when I used the power rake they were like awestruck children, even telling me that the road had never been so level and dip-free. One told me he would watch the tailights of the neighbor's car at night to see if they bounced---and didn't Smile . Mine was made by Piranha in Wis. but there are many mfg's; Harley is another. Mine was bought used from a local rental yard with about 10 hours on it for $4800 3 years ago, new was over $7000. They are heavy too--if I lift the hitch too fast it will lift the front tires even with front weights.

It is to much machine for me for some reason I was under the assumption that it was a smaller unit than a roto-tiller. Thanks for the info you are the best.
