Default Skidsteer Tiller Opinion

Has anyone used a high flow tiller on a Skidsteer before? Iím thinking about buying an 84Ē one for a couple places I canít get the big tractor into for food plots this year but Iíve never heard of anyone using one so Iím not sure how well they work or donít work. Iím only looking for maybe an acre or two each at the max so they wonít be very big. Any insight would be appreciated

The one we have works good. It'll definitely turn the soil!! The only down side is roots and little sticks/limbs. They can get wrapped around the shaft and you have to get them out. But it's not hard, just lift it up and spin in reverse.

Bought a cheap one from Richie bros last year. Decent rig. All I had to do was swap all the bolts and lock nuts on the tines. Very pleased with it. Seems a lot more efficient than the 3pt rig I have for the tractor

What size skid steer are you using and were you using a high or low flow model? Iíve got a couple 299D3 XEís but Iím curious if the high flow works very much better, I know the high flow stuff sucks a lot more fuel as well so Iím thinking about a low flow tiller but on the fence.

299 cat as well and I donít run it with high flow pinned out. Too fast. The drive motor for this cheap thing is sized for 12-16gpm low flow is honestly getting it high flow is way too sketchy.
