Is a 2 wheel tractor right for me?

Howdy! My wife and I have a garden every year, and every year it gets away from us. This last season was worse because I took a new job that keeps me away alot. I usually cultivate as long as I can with my ford 3000 tractor but it doesn't take long before the crops are to tall and the grass and weeds begin to get out of hand. I looked onto getting some sort of high crop tractor, but even then you will reach a point where cultivating is no longer feasible.

This lead me to the discovery of two wheel tractors (which I previously thought were just tillers). Before i make a serious purchase I have a few questions because the closest thing I have used has been a few snapper and troy bilt tillers.

1. Can you use a sulky with a tiller or cultivator attachment?
(I think my wife would have trouble wrestling one of these things around and we plant a big garden.)

2. What is the biggest mower decks offered for 2 wheel tractors? (to supplement our aging cub cadet zero turn)


Thanks for the advice!

Probably can use a sulky with a tiller, at least on the gravelys. The tiller is front mounted on the ones I saw. But I dont know if you would want the sulky going over your freshly tilled soil. Not sure how big a concern that is though.

I have had several tillers, a TroyBilt Horse, big BCS, 5HP BCS, Craftsman. For safety and riding in a big garden I would suggest one you can tow behind your garden tractor for your wife. They make self powered ones that hitch to the garden tractor if your is not equipped to power one. Just make wide rows.
