I HAVE A 860 FORD AND I PLAN TO BUY A 72 IN. ROTOTILLER FOR IT. AM I OVER LOOKING POSSIBLE ISSUES WITH USING A 72 IN.? CAN A SHORTER ROTOTILLER BE SHIFTED FROM ONE SIDE TO THE OTHER SIDE TO WORK EITHER TIRE TRACK? WHAT WOULD BE BEST?

dave i bought a 6 ft tiller from rural king to do garden plots and food and pollinator patches. a 5 ft would barely clear the rear tire foot print so i went with
the 6 ft. i am pulling it with an ih 240 utility with a fast hitch to 3 point conversion. my tractor does not have a live pto, but the hitch hydraulics are live. if
the ground is really hard, i make a few passes with a single shank chisel to loosen up the ground. and go over a couple times with the tiller. your 860
should have a live pto and about 40 hp or so so i dont see a problem. heres a pic of the rig and some ground it it worked up.

<img src="/cvphotos/cvphoto1920.jpg"> GLENNSTER, THANK YOU FOR THE INFO. AND THE PICS. I LOOKED UP THE RURAL KING 6 FT. TILLER. DO YOU THINK THERE WOULD BE ANY ADVANTAGE IN THE TILLER TURNING IN REVERSE FOR GARDEN PLOT FINISHED RESULTS?

mine is standard rotation. it is the hd gear driven tiller with the slip clutch. if i recall it was about 2 k for the unit. it does a nice job for seedbed prep. i
have no complaints.

No reason you can't use the 6' like TSC sells with 54 self sharpening L shaped, HD blades. I have one and run it on my 2000 or 3000 depending on which
is handier at the time. Piece of cake.
