Does anybody know of a ride on tiller?

Everybody is used to a riding mower, why not a riding tiller?

Anybody know of a commercially available unit or would this have to be a home build piece of gear?

I haven't seen anything like that.  Might be something like that across the pond in England but here in the western hemisphere the only thing available would be an attachment to a riding garden tractor.

What about a sulky behind a big Troybuilt. Attach it where the hiller/furrower goes.

I thought about something like that. Was really thinking about a ride on tiller.

We have the need for a 24 inch wide riding tiller. just might have to make one.

Its usually easier to fix an existing machine than to build a machine from scratch. A good GT with a tiller attachment may be your easiest option. Good Luck with the project. I'll be looking forward to pics of what you do. Rick

One of those might be a little hard on the kidneys.

Something big like this Howard Rotovator would be good to mount a seat on.  It certainly has the size and power.
