Is 1st gear on a IH140 too fast for a tiller?

Way too fast.

Yes, too fast. You need something that moves at a modest shuffle with the tractor at full throttle in order to effectively till.

If you've ever run a walk-behind tiller, that's about the speed the tractor would need to go at wide open.

A 140 in 1st moves at what I'd consider a moderate walking speed.

Thanks, I kind of figured it was but needed to hear it from someone else.
