Brand: CountyLine
Manufacturer Part Number RT5
CountyLine Rotary Tiller, 5 ft. is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tiller works as expected. This is a pretty good tiller, in researching "what to look for" three things always came up. 1. Gear drive - This unit has gear drive, if properly maintained, should last forever. 2. Weight - Get the heaviest unit you can fine, this one says it is just over 600 lbs. 3. Slip clutch - Helps to prevent damage to tiller and your tractor. Once assembled, this unit works really well, cuts thru hard soil and clay (just go slow!) rocks, bricks and large sticks don't seem to bother it but any roots or stumps you find it will NOT like. The big label that says the unit does not contain oil should state what type and quantity of oil is required. Instead it is buried in the assembly instructions, 1 gallon of 90 weight (1.5q for the PTO box, 2.5q for the gear drive). You will also need a suitable grease/grease gun for the pto u-joints, pto guard and the side hub. PTO sizing is a real bear, while you can cut it with a hacksaw, I recommend an angle grinder with a cut off wheel. There are instructions on how to size the length, but here is my suggestion. Do NOT install the pto shaft to the tiller, instead get everything assembled and attach it to your tractor. Set the tiller in such a position as to make the distance between the pto's the shortest. Separate the halves and remove the plastic guards, attach the tractor side ensuring it is locked on. Then install the tiller side and set the bolt in (no need to tighten). You can now align the halves to mark them as described in the manual. Remove both halves and cut them about 1" shorter than your mark. Re-install the plastic guards and trim using a hacksaw so you have about 1" of the shaft showing on each. Install the tiller side as directed. Note that you will not be able to install the PTO on the tractor side after attaching the tiller to your tractor unless you cut the pto really short. Remember there is a minimum overlap required on the shaft halves! Now, for the bad. As is probably typical, this unit was warehoused outside, though the instructions clearly state that if being stored there are steps to take, those steps are not taken by the manufacturer. My unit had some "pto manual" on the outside that was unusable after getting rained on for probably months. At least the instruction manual was in the tube holder, on which the bottom mount was broken. "Parts box" was also soaked and coming apart, even though it was wrapped in plastic but at least the hardware inside was not corroded. The top A arm was bent, I managed to straighten it enough to assemble it. Two bolts were missing. Fortunately I did not discard the packing bolts as instructed and was able to use those to complete the assembly. The plates that hold the top link pin were not welded on correctly and I had to use a dremel to grind away enough to insert the pin. Slipper clutch is fused/rusted together The bolts for the PTO guard must be pot metal, as one broke trying to get it into the rusted threads. Skid plates are definitely not angled as much as in the photo, and tend to want to dig in. Speaking of rust, everything that wasn't painted was rusted, such as the insides of the PTO fittings and all thread holes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tiller but read below I bought my tiller at my local tractor supply. Within one month the pto shaft split up the middle. No modifications or trimming needed to make it fit proper. Went to TSC with broken part and they Needed to call County Line to see how to handle it. First off, County Line customer service stinks. They were blaming me. Said it must have bound, or was too short, and my tractor was too small for the tiller. No to all. I'm an engineer by trade so measurement and tolerances to me are huge. I made darn sure there were no issues. Second tiller is rated for 25 to 50hp tractors. I've got 35 PTOhp on mine. Safe again I say to County Line. After getting now where, I left. TSC store manager calls me back and says she's giving me a new shaft off a new tiller because I paid good money and someone needs to step up. Thanks TSC you earned a customer for life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good... It really pleases me to be able to write a positive review for a TSC product. First, the con: the PTO shaft. To be fair, I'm a complete n00b when it comes to PTO equipment, so setting it up was... difficult ...to say the least. I finally said "screw it" and cut 4" off each side. No, I probably don't have enough overlap, but it was cold and raining and I didn't care at that point. There should be some sort of "magical math formula" that a person can measure from the tip of the tractor PTO to the tip of the implement PTO and it spits out how many inches should be cut off the shaft. But... I'll see how long it lasts. Gear oil. I have NO CLUE how much actually went in. I'd made a mental note to remember how much to put in, because know one knows until they do it, but I can't remember... I do recall a bottle and a half went in the top gearbox. So let's talk HP. I have a 2011 John Deere 2720. Engine HP is listed at 31.4 HP, and PTO is listed at 23.5 HP. The rear hitch lists a lift capacity in excess of 1200 pounds. I imagine all these stats are "best case, brand new tractor", so my numbers are probably actually a bit lower. A customer representative had indicated the smaller orange tiller was more suited for my tractor, but it turns out that my store couldn't even order one for "ship to store", and freight was going to cost a small fortune. Plus, I wanted a tiller that would till up the tire tracks. Honestly, I rather wish I'd gone with the 6' tiller now, because my little JD handles the 5-footer just fine. (The final decision to buy this tiller was based primarily on another JD 2720 owner's review that said his tractor handles it just fine. So now there are two concurring opinions.) Overall, I really like this tiller. Time will tell how good of a long-term investment it will be, but I figure if I take care of it, keep it out of the rain, and not try to till up the road, that is should last awhile. Granted, it took forever to figure out the PTO length, and another few hours figuring out how to connect it to the tractor (PTO n00b, remember?), but once it was on, it took me no time at all to till up quite a bit of ground. Took off one star for the PTO shaft complexity, and the fact the company can't actually tell us how much gear oil we should plan on putting in the crankcases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Unit - Purchased from Tractor Supply after looking at other around the area. Easy to put together. When you buy you will need to put oil in the Gear boxes. In saying that pick up one gal of the oil that you be using 1 1/2 Qt goes in the top and 2 1/2 goes in the side gear box. Sales people could not help me out with that. Other than that I am happy with the tiller. I am ready to plant
