Description

The Land Pride RTR20 Series Rotary Tillers are just right for home gardening, landscape work, vegetable farming, food plot maintenance, and light commercial use. Available in 64" and 72" widths, the RTR20 turns up hard packed ground, leaving a perfect seedbed for gardens and grass. The RTR20 Series Rotary Tillers feature a reverse tilling action for tough ground conditions. The reverse action “sucks” the tiller into the ground, which prohibits the tiller from “walking” on hard ground. It also incorporates spring loaded “sifting” rods behind the tines to help bury large rocks and debris. The reverse action of the rotor brings material up and over the top. Rocks and vegetation cannot get through the sifting rods so they fall first. Soil continues to get sifted before it falls, building a layer of large to small dirt clods burying the rocks and vegetation.

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.
