JD X500 with 30 inch mechanical tiller for 3 acres?
I have a JD X500. I recently purchased a used 30 inch mechanical tiller blindly and as it turns out, it is en earlier model made for the GT & GX series tractors. I'm looking to sell it and get the one specific for the X500. Does anyone have an opinion as to whether this tiller will be sufficient to till a 3.5 acre field twice a year?
For a while, I was feeling like I should have spent the money on something bigger than the X500 for all that I want to do, but since my purchase in 2007, it seems like there are more attachments for it and I could really start to exploit all it can do. I have the 48" blade, front mounted thatcher, the big tow-behind spreader, and the 13 ft3 cart. If I can use the 30" tiller for my field, I will be elated. Any guidance is greatly appreciated!
