Quick Hitch Compatible
Hi, I'm Ted from Everything Attachments, and we're here today to show you the Phoenix brand of rotary tiller made by Sicma in Italy. This is one of the finest tillers made. I've sold most of them over the days. This one has a high quality E-Cardan drive-shaft on it, PTO shaft with the slip clutch. This could come with a sheer bolt. A lot of tillers do, but if you hit something in the ground it's going to sheer a bolt, and you're going to have to get off and repair it. This way, it just slips the clutches and will let you continue to work instead of having to repair it. It also protects your tractor and protects the tiller when you hit something. This has six blades per rotor with a very wide tine here so it gives you a lot of wearing room. This S-shaped tine does a really good job in the tilling job. I tried another tiller that had a very sharp bind L-shaped tine, and it took about two passes to come up with the same result as one pass with this tiller. I like the shape of the tine, and I like the six blades per rotor.
On this particular tiller, on the T5 and up, you're able to take out the bolts on each side around here and remove this complete assembly. This has really large toque tubes to keep all the flecks out of it. This is my favorite brand of tiller. It also is fully adjustable hitch, top and bottom, so you can offset this to clear one side of your tracks if you use it on a larger tractor, or if you've got a smaller tractor you can narrow these up and still makes a good fit.
This has a really good powder coated finish. They do come in other colors, but orange is what we get almost 90% of them in. Both of these gear boxes are supposed to come full of oil, but you should still check it.
This has a grease-able side over here for your main torque tube, underneath there, where your tines are. The other side is running in oil with a size 80 chain. This has three different settings for your slide here on how deep or the depth you want for your tines to be going.
Turn it around to the back here, Kev.
It has a heavy-duty tailgate on the back, and really it does more than just protect objects from coming out of it, because the rotor's not really moving that fast in there, like a bush hog or something would be. This chain is important on how you set that and how high you leave your tailgate so it makes the consistency of your dirt the way you want it. You don't want to pulverize your dirt, because if you do, if you turn it into pure dust, when it rains it's going to become very solid. The higher you raise this the more it will allow the dirt to come out without being fully pulverized and come out in smaller chunks. But you still want it to be small and where you can work it easy to do your planting.
Come on around this way.
Here you'll notice that it does have a vent, and that's where your air comes out when your oils expands, and it has a sight glass for your oil. As long as you can see oil in that sight glass, you're good to go. It has a nice kick stand on it here because the rotor assembly is basically a big wheel under there, and it would want to fall one way or the other if you didn't have a kickstand here, and that makes it real easy to hook up to.
The Sicma is my favorite of all of the tillers. We sell a couple other brands, but if you want the deluxe, best tiller, this is it. They come in a lot of different sizes, a lot of different series, but this is a T5-60 what we're looking at right now. This is the T5 series that comes all the way from 44 inches to 60 inches in about every 2-inch increments, and we have all of them for sale.
If you'll give us a call or email at Everything Attachments, we'll be happy to make sure you get the right one for your size of tractor. Just remember, if you want to get a larger tiller and you're a little bit worried about how much power your tractor has, if it's pulling too hard on your tractor, you can always remove just a couple tines, and if you get a bigger tractor then you can just put them back on and keep on going.
