WEIGHT

667 lbs. Rotary Tillers need to be heavy in order for the tines to penetrate the ground, and reduce bucking.

WORKING WIDTH

53"

OVERALL WIDTH

58"

OFFSET

5" to the right of center. The tiller is offset from the center of the PTO so that you don't end up with compacted tire tracks in you finished bed.

ROTATION

Forward, same rotation as the tires of the tractor when traveling forward. This rotation requires less horsepower to operate; allows for a smoother bed of soil behind the tiller, and allows rocks to expel without recycling them through the tiller.

HP REQUIRED

20-45 HP

WORKING DEPTH

Adjustable side runners to 8" deep. Adjustable and replaceable side runners allow for deep tilling.

NUMBER OF FLANGES

Six is the total number of discs on the rotor that support the tines. These discs are precisely spaced to maximize tilling coverage while at the same time reduce jamming caused by rocks and debris.

TINES PER FLANGE

The 4 inner flanges use 6 tines. The 2 out flanges uses three inward facing tines. This configuration reduces the impacting of dirt between the outside flanges and the side plate ultimately wearing on the bearing seals, at the same time redirecting the soil to the inside of the tiller instead of spilling it out the sides of the tiller. WoodMaxx exclusive design.

TOTAL # OF TINES

30 tines are precisely spaced to maximize down pressure on each tine as the rotor turns. They are also spaced to allow rocks and large debris to be easily expelled.

BLADE TYPE

Self-sharpening C-shaped. Compared to L- shaped, the C- shape is more efficient, and requires less HP to dig into the soil. The gradual C-shape is stronger than the sharp bend of the L-shaped blades.

BLADE (TINES) MATERIAL

.25" 60SI2MN, spring steel, (American standard: A29M) formed, heat treated, and quenched in oil. These blades are self-sharpening and made to last.

ROTOR DIAMETER

3" diameter 5/16" wall tube. Large tube diameter adds strength and rigidity.

ROTOR SWING DIAMETER

19-1/2" diameter. Large swing diameter allows for deep digging.

ROTOR SHAFT SPEED

540 RPM PTO input speed = 210 RPM rotor shaft speed. The rotor speed is matched with the number of tines to reach the ideal torque required to tear through the earth.

DECK MATERIAL

Shaped and formed 5/32", .16", 8 gauge. Heavy formed Q-235 (American standard ASTM A-36) structural steel plate. Forming allows for additional strength and rigidity.

SIDE PLATE MATERIAL

5/16", .32". Heavy Q-235(American standard ASTM a-36) structural steel plate; think steel to ensure structural integrity of the unit during heavy use.

REAR DEFLECTOR

Keeps dirt in and maintains a level finish. The deflector is shaped and formed for additional strength. Adjustable deflector level allows for various finish results.

MAIN GEARBOX

ASAE 1- 3/8" - 6 spline shaft, proven cast iron, oil bath gearbox; ratio is 1.69:1.

GEAR DRIVE

Oil bath gear driven side gear drive mechanism; gear ratio is 1.52:1 gear drive is superior to chain drive in every way.

HITCH TYPE

Standard 3-point hitch 14. Or category 1 quick hitch. Clevis type lower hitch make attaching to your tractor a breeze.

PTO SHAFT

T5 driveline with slip clutch torque limiter. Competitors don't use the heavy T5 type that we do. The slip clutch is a must when tilling. The slip clutch will slip a little during heavy tilling or when contacting an unmovable object.

PARKING STAND

Supports the tiller during storage to prevent it from tipping.

FINISH

Baked on powder coat, powder coat is superior to paint.

WARRANTY

2 year parts warranty

5 of 5 Update: RT-58 Performance November 11, 2020
Reviewer: Larry Skaines from Goliad, TX United States  
Breaking ground that has not been plowed for 10+ years with a maximum depth setting, behind a 2019 John Deere 3025E tractor.  WoodMaxx
thought I should not buy the RT-58 because my tractor was a little short of their specifications. But, John Deere said my 3025E would handle the RT-58 as Deere's comparable tiller has the same specifications as the RT-58. My 3025E Engine/Power Take Off has a little more power than earlier versions of the 3025E.  
 Verdict:  Tilled 2 acres just fine.  Tilling should never be rushed, especially on virgin ground, so I set the PTO at 540 rpm, and used PTO rpm's to control my forward speed.  My tractor & tiller did their jobs very well.  I had a few jams with unexpected roots and one buried rock, but the slip clutch did its job.  No harm to equipment. Thanks, WoodMax! That thicker steel does give the extra strength and weight, as promised. Also, thank you for your honest feedback!
Semper Fi!

5 of 5 Built like a Mack truck April 16, 2020
Reviewer: Norman from West Baldwin, ME United States  
The RT-58 tiller arrived and took a leisurely hour and a half to assemble. The extra dough for lift gate service took the drama out of unloading.   It weighs well over 100 pounds more than its similar sized competition, important for long term durability and ground penetration.  Note that some of the other guys list their weight as shipping weight, not field weight.  It's what a tiller should be.  If I could teach it to weed the taters, it would be near perfect.

Tiller came well packaged and in excellent condition. Appears very rugged and assembly was minimal.

5 of 5 RT-58 tiller rocks! September 28, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from williamsburg, VA United States  
Have used this machine to create food plots on my property. Once you have adjusted the slip clutch to your tractors PTO this baby goes to town. I'm working in the woods so you can imagine the roots. This machine chews them up and spits them out well as long as you are reasonable in your approach to the process. Have re-tilled several areas previously cleaned up,limed and fertilized and the end product was a thing of beauty and smooth due the weight and easy rear gate adjustment. As my 2nd piece of equipment from Woodmaxx I will tell you that you will NOT be disappointed and can buy with confidence! The quality and service are top shelf, the way it used to be!
