I have not explored much about Greaves. My experince is with VST-mitsubishi Tiller. There is an authorised dealer here and service is good. 1.5/hr ltrs of  diesel consumption.  Handling wise also it is good.

You can also think of Kubota 2420 mini tractor and VST mitsubishi MT180D mini tractors.

Yes. You are right you can go for cultivator with 5 chisels.

whats the price range ??? for vst any subsidy?

Subsidy is there in agri department in karnataka. Check with your local office, I think some months later you can get the subsidy when the budget is announced.

2 years back, it was approx. 50% subsidy, I paid Rs. 87000 for my tiller.

we are using it for last two years and it is very good at puddling and inter cultivation of orchids though hard to find operator/Driver and it is a main problem. I recommend it but, it is more specific to usage requirements.

You can think of Mahindra Yuvraj 215 or VST Mitsubishi MT180D or Sonalika Gardentrac 20di
