Description

The Land Pride RTR05 Series Rotary Tillers are sized right for subcompact tractors and are designed to till soil for seedbed preparation. They are ideal for homeowner landscaping, small nurseries, gardens, small hobby farms, or medium-duty residential use.

The RTR05, and all reverse rotation tillers, tends to achieve greater depth of penetration, moving and pulverizing more soil in the process, while burying residue as opposed to leaving it on top. Available in 42" and 50" widths, the rotor features four "C" shaped heat-treated tines per flange that require less horsepower to move through the ground. Standard equipment includes adjustable skid shoes, park stand, and rear deflector shield.

Frequently Asked Questions About This Product

Why does my Tiller make a clacking noise when I raise it out of the ground?
Answer

This is most likely caused by putting the driveline in too much of an angle causing the u-joints to rub against one another. Raise the tiller while in operation just enough to clear the ground.

What type of oil is in the chain case and in the gearbox?
Answer

The chain case has 00 flowable grease (Corn head grease) and the gearbox has 80-90 wt. gear lube.

How fast can I run the tiller?
Answer

It depends on the conditions, but 2-3 mph is about the right speed. You may need to slow down if you start to notice material building in front of the machine.

How do I slip the clutch?
Answer

A step by step procedure is located in the Operator’s Manual (manual can be found on Related Products Page below). It is imperative that this be done prior to operation and any time the unit has set idle.

Can I run the unit in reverse?
Answer

It is not recommended.
