Plan on using a middle buster first to loosen soil.

If you go slow. Is it a geared tractor? Hydro should allow you to go as slow as you'd like

Ran a 5' tiller on my used and abused l2850 gear drive had to monitor operating temps religiously and was slow going occasionally going over tilled area multiple times. Completely different story using same tiller with my l4150. Usually tilled after I ran a 2 bottom plow (also an interesting adventure with a smaller 2850) or subsoiler to start the process.

What's your soil? I've had to be careful with my 5' and M4700 in dense marine clay (the type of clay one can cut blocks out of).

I Would be quite apprehensive to run a 5' tiller reverse tine on a hydrostatic 2501 kubota though. Anyways Interested about any and all things in the l2500 series as an eventual upgrade for my 2850.

My L2501 HSD has no problem with the land pride RTA 1258 (forward tine rotation). Like others stated, going slow and allowing the tiller to work is key to success. I have heavy soil and have no problems. If new ground, start shallow and increase depth once the soil is broken.
