- Expectations Well Met Review by Cal
Price Value Quality
I'd been wanting a middle buster for a couple years to plow spuds, clean out ditches, break new ground for the tiller, etc. Been keeping an eye on Craig's List, ebay, local want ads, etc. but very little available for a good price...or at least a price much lower than what Rural King had on this unit. The fact that their unit also included a subsoiler chisel just made thier deal even sweeter. When RK advertised free shipping, I couldn't resist and promptly ordered one.
The only problem I experienced in the process was that the plow came without the bolts required to affix the moldboard/sub-soiler chisel to the vertical shaft. When I called RK however, the customer service rep with whom I spoke immediately contacted the folks at King Kutter who in turn promptly shipped the bolts to me in two days...no arguements from anyone.
Upon assembly, I immediately set out to dig two rows of potatos. The plow worked perfectly and was very controllable for depth with the hydraulic controls on my BX24.
I'm sure you can find a competitor's middle buster with slightly prettier welds but the ones on this unit all appear strong and didn't break even when I sank the plow full depth to the horizontal 3pt hitch shaft...just to test it; pretty is as pretty does!
KK/RK's BX sub-compact middle buster appears to be a well-made product, a good value for the person who needs to use one a couple times a year on small acreages and mid-sized gardens.
