[Market-farming] dream tiller

I'm with you, "TxBeeFarmer"!  I have a Woods 3 point tiller that I used for 
a couple years before I just got sick of it.  All it took was one big rock 
to put the thing out of commission for a while until I could come up with 
the money to take it in for repair...then there's the maintenance (oil, 
etc.).  Everytime I used it, I just kept saying under my breath "please 
don't break, please don't break"...:)  Also, I didn't have good luck using 
it to till in leftover stalks, etc.  Things like vines, bean plants, etc. 
just get wound up in the tines.  So, I've completely retired my tiller in 
lieu of a Gearmore offset disc (which is 3 point).   It tears through 
anything, digs down as deep as the tiller ever did, and after several passes 
it smooths out the soil well enough for me to use my bedshaper.

Just my opinion...
