781 lbs. Tractor Rotary Tillers need to be heavy in order for the tines to penetrate the ground, and reduce bucking.
10″ to the right of center. The tiller is offset from the center of the PTO so that you don’t end up with compacted tire tracks in you finished bed.
Forward, same rotation as the tires of the tractor when traveling forward. This rotation requires less HP to operate; allows for a smoother bed of soil behind the tiller, and allows rocks to expel without recycling them through the tiller.
Adjustable side runners to 8″ deep. Adjustable and replaceable side runners allow for deep tilling.
NUMBER OF FLANGES
8 this is the total number of disc on the rotor that support the tines. These disc are precisely spaced to maximize tilling coverage while at the same time reduce jamming caused by rocks and debris.
TINES PER FLANGE
The 6 inner flanges use 6 tines. The 2 out flanges use 3 inward facing tines. This configuration reduces the impacting of dirt between the outside flanges and the side plate ultimately wearing on the bearing seals, at the same time redirecting the soil to the inside of the tiller instead of spilling it out the sides of the tiller. WoodMaxx exclusive design.
TOTAL # OF TINES
42 tines are precisely spaced to maximize down pressure on each tine as the rotor turns. They are also spaced to allow rocks and large debris to be easily expelled.
The Blade types of this PTO Tiller are Self-sharpening C-shaped. C compared to L- shaped, the C- shape is more efficient, and requires less HP to dig into the soil. The gradual c-shape is stronger than the sharp bend of the L-shaped blades.
BLADE (TINES) MATERIAL
.25″ 60SI2MN, spring steel, (American standard: A29M) formed, heat treated, and quenched in oil. These blades are self-sharpening and made to last.
3″ diameter 5/16″ wall tube. Large tube diameter adds strength and rigidity.
ROTOR SWING DIAMETER
19-1/2″ diameter. Large swing diameter allows for deep digging.
ROTOR SHAFT SPEED
540 RPM PTO input speed = 210 RPM rotor shaft speed. The rotor speed is matched with the number of tines to reach the ideal torque required to tear through the earth.
Shaped and formed 5/32″, .16″, 8 – gauge. Heavy formed Q-235 (American standard ASTM a-36) structural steel plate. Forming allows for additional strength and rigidity.
SIDE PLATE MATERIAL
5/16″, .32″. Heavy Q-235(American standard ASTM A-36) structural steel plate; think steel to ensure structural integrity of the unit during heavy use.
Keeps dirt in and maintains a level finish. The deflector is shaped and formed for additional strength. Adjustable deflector level allows for various finish results.
ASAE 1- 3/8″ – 6 spline shaft, proven cast iron, oil bath gearbox; ratio is 1.69:1.
Oil bath gear driven side gear drive mechanism; gear ratio is 1.52:1 gear drive is superior to chain drive in every way.
Standard 3-point hitch. Or category 1 quick hitch 14a, clevis type lower hitch make attaching to your tractor a breeze.
T5 driveline with slip clutch torque limiter. Competitors don’t use the heavy T5 type that we do. The slip clutch is a must when tilling. The slip clutch will slip a little during heavy tilling or when contacting an unmovable object.
Supports the tiller during storage to prevent it from tipping.
Baked-on powder coat, powder coat is superior to paint.
2 year parts warranty.

Purchased the RT-80 rotor tiller for our garden production. This unit is well build and I’m very pleased with the performance it does. I plan on using it for many years. Thank you WoodMaxx for a well built machine that’s priced right.
After a long winter, spring finally came and with it the opportunity to try the new tiller. We purchased the RT80 over the winter and when things finally dried out we mounted it to our 60 hp New Holland tractor. I must say we were very impressed with the job it did. It left us with a beautiful seedbed with just one pass in soil we had previously worked. In untilled sod it broke the ground up thoroughly and with a couple more passes left it quite manageable. Thanks for great engineering, rugged construction, and your excellent customer service. It’s a real pleasure doing business with you!
