Whatever you get make sure the tractor moves slow enough. I had a tiller on a gear drive Simplicity that was just too fast. Put the tiller on a hydro and it worked fine. I find the heavier the tiller the better on our clay. Light tillers tend to bounce around a lot.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see Ihave a 112 john deere that is 35years old and the kohler motor is rough but when it was 2 to 5 years old I went over to my granddads place to roto-till his garden plot not thinking about the clay soil. I put it in the creeper gear [it is a standard trans.] and it started tilling ok until I hit a very solid patch of soil, the rear wheels of the tractor came off the ground andpropeled me along until I had the smarts to pull the tractor pto lever out of gear. My granddad was laughing so hard he had tears on his face and this is still a funny thought for me yet today. Buy a heavy enough tractor like a JD420 or at least a 318 with a heavy tiller, if you have clay soil.
