Thinking about buying a tiller for your tractor?
Let's talk ....
What beginners want to know.
The tractor's three point hitch serves to connect and raise-lowered a tiller.
The tractor's rear PTO ( power take off) powers the tillers after they are connected by the PTO shaft.
The tiller must be properly sized to the tractor for proper operation and to avoid damages and repairs to both units. Important considerations will include tiller weight, width, lubrication, gear box HP capacity and the length of the PTO shaft.
What if my ground is really hard?
Your tractor tiller blades spin around and though the dirt to pulverize it to the degree you need for leveling or planting seeds. If the ground area has not been tilled before or recently, it will be very hard for a tiller's blades to penetrate the surface very deeply and several pass overs may be required to complete the your tillage goals.
If the soil top surfaced has been tilled with a moldboard plow, sub-soiler shank, by the ripper/scafiers on a box blade by to tilling, the tillers performance will be enhanced and you'll be able to complete the work quicker and easier.
The ground area will probably be much easier to till next time if it has not been compacted by traffic.
What comes with a new tiller?
Every new Phoenix tiller includes: 3 pt hitch, Quick hitch compatible, Jack stand, PTO shaft with slip clutch assy. , Adjustable side skids to determine working depth, Six each "Curved" blades per flange, Long-life seal for rotor, operator-parts manual.
