Don’t have a tractor on site yet. How do the pull behind tillers work on 4-wheelers.
We are going to try to get something going for the fall plant.
I found one that you can add weight onto to break the soil better. Just wondering if they are effective.

Rent a tractor, unless the grounds been worked heavily in the past the small tillers take FOREVER to get anything done. I have one behind the shop that I used once and it’s worthless IMO. You can rent a 50 horse tractor and tiller or disc and get done In a day what would take the ATV tiller a month. Had a spot I couldn't get the tractor into so I bought one and it wasn’t a wise decision, I’ve let a few friends borrow it and it’s always the same response, that thing sucks roflmao

Haha. Thanks Thumper. Ground has never been worked. I imagine it’s like busting concrete.
Just saved me some beer $$$

4 wheelers aren't geared to work like a tractor. Trying to do so can get expensive.

agree with the others unless you are in very sandy soil ... then would need to shred/mow, the plow. one of our lease members had one in east TX that worked pretty good but that is deep sandy soil where he used it.

Might call the local ag. teacher at the high school and see if he has any students you could hire with a tractor and equipment to get the work done. Might come out cheaper and help a local out.

Yep, rent a tractor. Much easier and faster to get what you want done. Plus it will do a much better job resulting in a much better food plot.

Talk to the neighbors, one of them will have a high school kid that will borrow daddy's tractor and equipment, for a $100 plus a nice tip, the job will be done right. If not that route, check with the local high school ag teacher, he will know a kid that could use the money and will do a good job.

Those are 1998 prices, not 2021 prices. $600 an acre is a good figure for a turn-key operation. IF you buy the seed, fertilizer and plant it yourself it can be cheaper.
