you know, i did mine for the first time by hand with the little 36 inch troy-bilt this year rather than bringing in the big three point. I was really happy with the result, it turned in the manure just fine and the soil was really clear. Im happy with how ive augmented the soil. I did need the big 3point for the first couple years to loosen up the soil and get it evenly mixed a foot or so down and level it all out, but the soil is good enough now that getting down 4-6 inches with the walkbehind is good enoughYup.
On the plus side, our friend did a fabulous job tilling our garden.
Fucking gorgeous dirt.
