Overall great machine; easy to use by people of all ages--seniors, youth, weekend moms and of course dads. Able to get into narrow areas with ease. Transmission works flawlessly. Love the reverse when needed.

A great buy
In less than an hour had it assembled and running,but did not put it to test.When I did try it to break up some sod it surprised me at how well it worked.Tore through the sod like butter.For $600.00 it was a good buy and I would recommend it to a friend.My only problem with this product is it is supposed to be counter rotating tines,but the setting is the same for both operations,so I am trying to figure out how it works.This is just my 3rd week with the tiller so I may be missing something.

The CRT900 far surpassed any review expectations I had read.
I am not a very strong do-it-yourself person, but I was able to assemble the handle with no problems at all in just a few minutes.
The CRT900 is very powerful and easy to guide. I read a review that someone wished it had a faster gear for moving it from the garage to the garden. I do admit my land is quite level, but I was able to push it as fast as I could walk with no problems.
It ground the garden into fine dirt. The reverse was extremely helpful in maneuvering the tiller. It took only a fraction of the time I had expected. I plan to expand my garden next year.
I reviewed a lot of tillers before purchasing this one. For the value, I don't think you can find a better tiller for the $599 price.

I'm disabled and have a hard time with things as on oxygen.
We got this tiller because it is easy to operate and because it is also easy for my wife to use.. One other reason it has a Briggs and Stration engine.

Great Little Machine
Plows threw hard clay soil with ease. Low vibration, low noise. Levels out a good fine soil planting bed. 30`x100` garden done in quick time.
Be careful with choke as the little plastic cam on top looks a bit weak. Briggs should change it back to the metal type.
Overall this unit will last many years of hard work...

MAKE A GARDEN
I got tired of having to borrow my son-in-laws tiller every time I needed one. So I did some research and decided the CRT900 was the best value for the money. I WAS RIGHT. It breaks the hardest ground with ease and it has great maneuverability. Small enough to cultivate between rows but big enough and plenty of power to get the job done. I just love it.

A real work horse!
If in 5 years, the tiller performs as good as it does now, it will have been an excellent buy. The only complaint I have is that rocks can and do get lodged between the tines and the protective housing around the tines. My soil is clay and full of rocks, but it cuts through nicely except for the occassional large rock.
