I bought a gt16 with rototiller but it seems to not have the power to cut threw a heavy grass area. I was hoping it would. I believe its belt driven to the tiller then another belt inside the tiller itself. But I damn near had the thing in flames as it started to smoke pretty good after an hour. Then it stopped spinning all together. Maybe will fix it tomorrow and try again or perhaos I should sell it and try something different or bigger??

Welcome to GTTalk!

 

Its hard to find a belt drive tiller that can really do a good job at cutting turf.  Do you have a plow or disc to loosen things up a bit first?

Thanks for the welcome. I guess a blow or disk isnt a part of the gt16? You think its better to upgrade to something a bit bigger? Id like to get something used that would do the job, and not too expensive.

I can attest to the Kubot doing the job. I've got a B5100 (12hp) with a 36" tiller and it will cut through sod really well. About 3 passes and you can turn turf into 6"-8" of nice tilled up dirt... That tractor has a three speed PTO... use the lower speed for breaking through the sod then use the higher speed to really churn it up.

The Kubota with that many attatchments looks to be a good package.  Prices vary a lot from region to region(based on availability) so I hesitate to comment on the price. But it would be a good price in Iowa.

 

Nothing wrong with that Case either, but I would want the Kubota over it.

 

The implements can run into money very quickly!  I bought a new 48" tiller for my Ford and it cost me $1400 which was a good deal.
