Tilling the garden in prep for planting green beans, 1/3 of my sweet corn, and transplanting some pepper, tomato, and eggplants tonight.  The tiller has an apron on the back that has hung into the blades before when backing up & not realizing I didn't raise it high enough, or hit tall grass at the ends.  It hung again tonight, so I just took it off, and I'm leaving it off.  I will repair it, but just put it away in case I ever sold it, but it does just as smooth at leveling without the apron anyway.  

  I am so glad I put rear pto on Hogzilla, as it does a super job with the tiller.

Good to hear someone can get into their garden. All of ours are swamps.
Hearing the Hog is doing as designed is :thumbs: news.

I ran the 50" on my Legacy again yesterday.  I sure love 3pt attachments.  Easy on and off.  Our ground is pretty damp, but it tilled well enough.  I just couldn't wait...the folks wanted their plants in the ground by the 17th, so I showed up on the 17th  =]  Even had some light loader work for me to do!
