 Howard tillers any good?

Hi fellas, My local tractor store only sells Howard tillers. I am thinking of getting a 60 inch for my kubota 3130. Can I go bigger? Are howard tillers any good or should I get a KK?

Thanks,
BC

 Howard tillers any good?

Howard is one of the first tiller companies that built for the US market being here probably well over 30 years at this point. They, like most companies build both upper end and lower end. Good tillers use slip clutches and with the side to side movement they have a sliding driveshaft to align the gearbox so it doesn't need to run sideways off the tractor to match up. The size of the tines do make a difference in tine life as well as the tillers ability. Small high tensile tines will go into the ground easier then larger tines and the high tensile steel that is often used on the smaller tines wears excellent or even better then the larger crude steel tines. The smaller tines do the same work with less horsepower loss and less vibration on the tractor in hard pack ground.
