Quick Hitch Compatible
Hi. I'm Ted from Everyday Attachments, and we're here today with the Phoenix brand of rotary tiller. This is made by the Sicma Corporation in Italy. This is what I've found to be the finest tiller in the world, that I know of. This is a 20 series. This is going to be for a large tractor of 60 horse power and up. It comes in different widths. It starts at an 80 inch, I believe. It goes up to 120 inches, which is ten feet. This is a 90-inch. This has a really large rotor assembly with a huge torque tube, giving you the full for less flexibility all the way across with the long widths that it makes. Even the side bearing over here, which is not on the drive side, which runs in oil. This side does run in oil, and I'm going to show you that in a minute as we spin it around. It has a really thick bar all the way across the front where these clevis units can be adjusted to fit your tractor. This will work with a category two or a category one. You simply put your hitch on either side, depending on what size balls you have in your tractor.
Typically, this size of tiller will be used with a category two tractor. But you can switch this top-link pin to the category one side also. This also is on a U-bolt on the back of this; it will slide back and forth to give you some offset. So if you had a row crop tractor that was set really wide, you could still offset it about a foot and let it be able to clear out your tracks. So, what gives you a lot of wear time on your tines is how wide the blade from the front to the back. These are really thick, really wide, and with six of them you get a lot of really good tilling action with just one pass and you're going to get a lot of wear with a tine like that. Now, I've tried other tillers that have an L-shape tine which would come straight out and straight over, and they just don't till as well as this S-
shaped tine. This is my favorite tiller. It's a 540rpm shaft, comes with a huge E-Cardan shaft with a big slip-clutch on it. So, if it was to catch a big rock, or a stump, or root, or whatever, within the field. It would stop the rotor for a minute, slip the clutch, instead of sheering a bolt. Then, you can go back to work with the clutch without having to change the bolt. So, some of the other advantages of this...
Turn me around over here to the side, Peanut.
If you see right where it says oil? This is the case here. This has regular gear oil, or like 90 weight in it, where that bearing is running in oil, instead of just a greased bearing.
Come on around.
Because of the width and how heavy the rear till gate is, and the way this works, because it's so wide, it needs to have two independent tilgates on it. Tilgates do a lot on the back of a tiller. They really can, between the speed of your tractor, the type of ground you have and these adjustments on these tilgates determine how much you're pulverizing the ground. You don't really want to mix it too much, because if you get totally like sand, especially with our red clay around here, you're going to end up, when it rains, with some really hard dirt. So, you want to leave it just a little bit chunky, but leave a good till job. So these tilgates and the speed of your tractor are what are going to control the consistency of what you end up with. It has a really large gear box on it, supported from both sides...
Come on around this way Kev.
This is a fully powder coated unit. This one is red. Most of the ones we get from the supplier come in orange. It has three big gears right here, which are running in oil. There's a sight glass right here that would let you know if there's oil in there. As long as it shows oil in there you're good.
You've got four different slide adjustments that's half-inch steel. So, this tiller is a full commercial built for long term use. And hat proves it by showing that they're running that other bearing in oil instead of just a sealed bearing there. You've got a nice kick stand here because you've got a big heavy unit that basically on wheel there, with a rotor assembly. Without that, it could make it very difficult or dangerous to hook up because it could rotate forward. But we've sold the sicma brand for over 20 years, and it's definitely, for a tiller, it's my favorite that goes on the back of a tractor. Especially when you get to this size of a tiller, give us a call or email and let us know what tractor you have. We'll probably ask you what type of dirt you have and make sure that we get the right size tiller for your tractor and for your needs. Just remember, give us a call or email at Everything Attachments and we'll get you fixed with the right unit.
