 Woods GTC52 tiller

I bought one myself over the weekend and they picked up my BX 2200 today to size the PTO shaft. I don't think they have been on the market all that long. It looks to be well engineered to last for a while. I also got the Woods box blade, which seems to be fairly heavy duty.

 Woods GTC52 tiller

ohiocountry:
If you don't mind my asking, how much did you pay?
Also, did you get the 52"?
The woods web site lists the 40" for use with the 'limited' cat 1 hitch; the 52" for use with a cat 1. But it also lists the 40" for hp ranges of 15-20 and the 52" for use with 20-30 hp.
My dealer has recommended this tiller (the 40"Wink yeah right, and says they have some coming in the end of march that I can take a look at. He gave a rough quote of 1100$.

I got the 52 inch for $1150. My dealer said the BX could even run the 60 inch, but all I wanted was to make sure I was covering my tracks. All three Kubota dealers I have talked to says Kubota is being overly conservative by recommending the B40C tiller. I had my tractor with mounted tiller delivered this afternoon and it fits the limited category 1 hitch just fine.

 Woods GTC52 tiller

I got a quote in Central WI twoo weeks ago on a GTC 40 at $1195 and a GTC 52 at $1295. I want to use it on my JD 2210. Sounds like you guys are a bit lower than my quote.

I haven't bought mine because I'm still looking at Frontier and Rhino. But I was really impressed with the Woods product.

 Woods GTC52 tiller

I just made the purchase of a GTC52 last night. It will arrive in 1-2 weeks. Prices are up due to steel increases. I wound up pay $1325 (up $35 from Feb.) However, my other choice, a JD/Frontier RT1150 was up $150 in the same period and was now going to cost $1650! I decided to save $325!

I'll be using the Woods on my JD2210. Is it likely I'll need to resize the PTO shaft that is supplied with the unit? Is that easy to do?

Any advice about initial use or break-in period for this tiller? I've never owned one before and don't want to do something dumb with it!

You may not have to cut it. Are you using quick hitch /Pats easy change or anything? You shouldn't have any problem cutting the shaft with a hacksaw but would be faster with power band saw. Measure twice so you don't cut too short.

DJLX, I've got the I-Match hitch on the back so maybe that adds enough that I won't need to break out the Sawsall.

BTW, what is the size of the trailer in your picture? I'm looking at a 14ft model but yours looks like it might be 12ft. Am I close?

You're right. I added another pic to the pics! This home built trailer made out of 2x3, 3x3 box frame with 2-3500 lb axles measures 62" between the fenders and is a little over 12' long. As you can see the tractor, tiller, loader actually just fits but I move it forward a little to add more tongue weight. Pulling a narrow trailer is great but it would be nicer about a foot bigger in each dimension.
