Built-in manual side shift

BEFCO tillers feature a built-in manual side shift system that allows operator to either keep the tiller center mounted behind the tractor, like a traditional unit, or offset the tiller to the right of the tractor. This is particularly beneficial when trying to till over the right tractor tire and closer to obstacles.

Forward or reverse tilling rotation

BEFCO tillers may be set up with either a forward or reverse rotating rotor. When the rotor rotates forward the tiller will have a tendency to bury the rocks while when the tiller rotates backwards it will have a tendency to bring any rocks to the surface.

Gearbox manufactured by BEFCO

Unlike other manufacturers who purchase gearboxes from outside suppliers, BEFCO utilizes a gearbox built in-house using high strength steel for its gears and top of the line bearings and seals.

ASA 80  Chain drive

Lateral ASA 80 chain drive transmission in oil bath. Our chain transmissions are oversized specifically to avoid any downtime due to maintenance. Our Chain transmissions also offer over 180° gear coverage resulting in a smoother and better distributed power transmission.

Reversible sprockets

Model T40 tillers are equipped with reversible sprockets that allow you obtain two tillage speeds: Standards speed is 231 rpm, Increased speed is 375 rpm.

Rotor supports

Rotor supports are made out of stamped steel.

Flanged rotor shaft

The flanged rotor shaft allows operator to quickly disassemble the rotor from the tiller for easy and comfortable blade service and replacement.

Side skids with Infinite adjustments

Side skids allow for tiller depth adjustment to be set anywhere from 0″ to 7 1/4″.

Reverse rotation (factory installed)

RVRXXT40 reverse rotation.
With this option ordered, unit will arrive from the factory assembled with a reverse rotating tiller rotor.
