JD 30inch mechanical tiller VS. 42 inch hydraulic tiller ??
I have read and posted different threads on these two tillers and am looking for more feed back.
I plan to purchase one of these tillers for a garden I plan to put in soon. The garden will be of virgin soil and it is primarily clay but not too rocky. The garden is for my own use therefore not too large. I have a garden tractor that can take either tiller. My preference between the two tillers would be the mechanical tiller. Simply since I assume it would be far less maintenance and any repairs far less costly. On the other hand, I would not later regret purchassing the 42inch hydraulic tiller if the 30inch is really not up to the job! Other uses I have for a tiller will be to improve some of the lawn and prepare flower beds.
I guess my question here is, can the 30inch tiller do the job as well as the 42" hydraulic in difficult soil? I expect use of the 30inch one would have to make an additional path...
