Look for a Howard rototiller. My brother has a 50 inch one that he runs on a Case VAC. It does a GREAT job

Yes, Howard Rotavator is good. I have a 42" and my brother has a 60" both of which I run with my 25HP tractor. On new ground the 60" is a little too much but on tilled ground it does good. The 42" does good on both new and tilled ground. Howard are heavy enough to hold up for a real long time. I bought my 42" about 20 years ago at auction for $225 because the shaft wouldn't turn. I applied oil to the outer input shaft daily for a few days and then hooked it up and tried it. It worked and I have never needed a new bearing. All I have done is 2 or 3 sets of new tines which are available easily from any farm supply thru JS Woodhouse. I used so many tines because I tilled for about 15 years doing gardens in the spring for folks and tines are a common wear item. But you do get several hundred if not thousand hours on a set. Rocks seem to wear them the fastest and eventually break them after worn too much. I'm talking rocks that throw the several hundred pound tiller jumping up and down as you till over them.

We had a 13 footer at the sod farm when I was kid. John Deere would sell us tractor but wouldn't warrenty it if where going to use it. Ended up with a 1570 Case. We chisel plowed everything first but it still made the old case snort once in a while
