Hello all, thinking about Tiller purchase, L3901 HST w NT quick hitch, have all implements adapted . What Tillers do you guys run with QH ? And want to buy one and not have to modify PTO shaft. Looked through search topics most are for B series tractors. 60 to 66 inch width, tractor has R1 tires 55inch tire width. Just want to make good choice. Buy once, cry once. Thanks in advance,and good luck on all your projects.

I have a 60" County Line tiller I picked up at Tractor Supply a couple of years ago. My tractor is a L3901 with a quick hitch and R4 tires. No customization was required on the PTO shafts and it covers my tire tracks so I would not change anything.

Just parked my B2650 with a LP QH-10 and RTA-1558 on it. Worked like a charm for a new lawn space...

not sure I’d be without a quick hitch...

The QH pushes your implement further away so there is a good chance you may need longer PTO shafts. I have a 40 year old Kubota tiller - I only use it once a season and store it indoors - still looks and runs like new with no issues. You might have luck buying a used low hour tiller.

Been looking Craigslist, FB marketplace, everyone wants nearly new price for whatever they have. Looked at TSC Countryline 6ft today,they didn't have 5ft. Putting on PHD today so will take QH when I go back to TSC to be sure will work. Just under 2k for the 5ft. TSC in another location 30 min away says they have 5ft in stock. Thanks Outnumbered, good info,just for my info,what brand QH do you have? Thanks to all who replied, good luck on all your projects.

Unfortunately I have no idea, I can't find any identification on it and it came with the tractor when I bought it used a few years ago. I love it and have all my attachments setup for it. It can be a smidge tight to get in the to hook up the pto but not too bad as only use the pto for the rotary cutter and the tiller. The box blade and carry all are what I use the most on the rear.

The Tillovator I just got today from agrisupply seems to be fine with the quick hitch. L3301, 60" tiller. Agrisupply item 77710 if you want details.

1 Speeco, 1 from Harbor Freight, 1 from Rural King. The QH's are more standardized than implements - they are getting better.

My local Horror Fright had a returned QH for $99, no returns. Told me that it was sold to someone with a Kubota BX, and that it didn't fit correctly. Don't know if it was operator error, or just too large to work on the smaller tractor.
