 reverse tine tilling

Land Pride makes a big deal about their reverse direction tiller -- the tines move opposite to the forward motion of the tractor. Anyone use one of these? Any real experience that would corroborate their marketing?

 reverse tine tilling

I can't really comment on three point tiller, but I used to have a walk behind Huskee rear tine tiller with reverse rotation tines. It was by far in my opinion, superior to a troybilt with forward rotating tines. It worked smoother, handled easier, and did a much better job of creating a good seed bed in one pass. The only drawback was if you were trying to incorporate a heavy layer of manure or compost, I think forward rotating tines do a little better. The trick is in the design of the tines. After retiring the Huskee after many years, I got a Kubota that the tines could turn in either direction. They didn't have enough angle on them and they did a poor job in both directions. If it is designed for reverse I don't think you will be disappointed.

 reverse tine tilling

Maybe some you old timers can help me remember this. Back in the late 50's or early 60's a company that I think was called the"Howard Rotovator company" mad a tiller that wss wide enough to cover four rows of corn but only tilled where the row would be then had a planter unit mounted on it behind each strip of tilled ground to be sort of a one pass planting system. One of our neighbors got one and as I remember it ran in reverse. They never caught on, I think for several reasons, they were pittiful slow, they would wrap with trash, and rocks were a real killer on them. Far as the Landpride reverse model, I've saw a couple on dealer lots, but never knew anyone who has one. Enough rambling from me, Frank.

 reverse tine tilling

I have a walk behind tiller that can operate in either direction. Running the tines in reverse on this type of machine is essential in breaking new ground or very hard packed clay. With forward rotating tines it won't penetrate and just pulls the machine forward. With reverse tine rotation it holds the tiller back while the drive tires are driving forward. The tires spin sometimes and the power is more than a person can hold back. That is on a small tiller operated by hand. Yes, stuff wraps around the tines and it picks up stones like crazy and they jam often. After the drive belt slips, you have to change to forward rotation or bang out the trapped stone.

In my opinion, non of these features are needed on a tractor mounted unit. You can as slow as you want if you have a hydro. Landpride makes excellent equipment, but would just go with the normal forward rotation if it were me. If you have a tight budget, I'd go with King Kutter, and get the slip clutch and give it a decent paint job as soon as I got it home.

JD, I had a Troybilt and would have said it was reverse rotation but that was too many years ago. Guess the tines being BEHIND the tires was the reverse I remembering.

Hardwood, never seen machine you mentioned but rotary hoes used here were a lot like that. Not sure they were ever used with planters.

 reverse tine tilling

Frank, there is still a couple of machines built that just till the rows or designated area. They use small(20 to 30" heads that drive from an upper shaft down to the unit. The reverse tine tillers were first used in walk behind and tthey are great for holding a tiller in place to till when you have stones. With the larger tractors it is not a problem to hold them in place to do a good job of tilling. What was found with farmers for tillers in many applications they were to slow and the tine wear was more expensive then plow parts and disc repairs. There are different types of steel used in the tines, some are large and a softer steel that will wear faster but take a larger amount of abuse from stones without breaking, the others are a harder steel wear better are smaller in size and penetrate the soil easier but might break in basic gravel beds. The smaller tines normally do the job faster and require less horsepower to run as well as run the machine with less vibration in stones.

 reverse tine tilling

I purchased a Landpride reverse tine tiller last summer. No problems with it. It does a great job with no jumping around. I have it offset to cover the right rear tire. I'm using it on a Kubota L245DT.
