Bring some tools!
I don't know if my tiller was assembled at the factory or the dealer, but pieces started to fall of on the first use. The handle lock was striped so I had to bolt it in place, the plastic plate on the top of the handle was only held on by a tie strap, and the right side inside tiller didn't have a shear pin. After I repaired every thing it works fine.

Very reliable roto-tiller
This is one of the best pieces of equipment I have ever owned. Has been reliable and trouble-free for many years.
I bought this unit over fifteen years ago and have never been sorry for one minute. Purchased to use in the family garden and is normally the only piece of equipment used. Works well to prepare the soil each year and then with a small adjustment, performs just as well while cultivating.
Each spring the tiller is still easy to start after sitting over the winter. I will be heartbroken when it actually fails, though I realize nothing can last forever.

I bought the machine because I needed it to be functional in a smaller yard with tight spaces in and around out buildings and the garden. I also needed a machine that could break new ground without problems. This machine is everything I needed and more. Compared to other brands, this tiller is priced very reasonable.

Great first tiller
I got this tiller to break up clay and till up the garden. This tiller has been easy to operate, start and maneuver. I used it on my front lanscape to break up the clay. I also used it to stir in peat and sand mixture to make a new bed and it did a great job. I am well pleased with this machine.

No customer support
My tiller was shipped with a hole in the bag that contains the manuals and the hardware pack. Almost all the assembly hardware was missing. Their customer support people are rude. They couldn't even find the model number of my tiller in their parts catelog and asked me if it was new. Then they told to fax in what was missing. After repeated attempts to contact them and leaving my number, I received no phone calls back. Why they are still using fax is so outdated and there is no way of tellling if they received it. So my tiller sits unassembled...never again

My First Husqvarna
The CRT900 is perfect, almost. It was purchased to replace another brand that could not work this Arkansas (rock) soil. We have a 32'x24' veg. garden with a 8'x24' fruit garden. The tiller works great in the garden and has helped out with redirecting my rock shelf water problem. The counter rotating tines are super. Having a forward/reverse is unbelievable. The only problem I have found so far is that it takes 'forever' for me to get the tiller from my equipment shed to the garden due to the speed limit. Fix that very simple issue and you have a 5 out of 5 winner.

CRT900 Tiller, power easily controlled
Have used the CRT900 for about a month now and am very impressed. Starts very easily (on the first pull out of the box!) and is very easy to control. My wife is on the tiny side, but she runs the tiller without problem. We have about a half acre garden in northern Arkansas so you know we got the rocks! This tiller just spits 'em out and keeps on truckin! The counter wieght on the tiller's front is perfect, makes balance great. Sips gas like a debutante at a tea party. Quiet operation without bad vibration, I actually LIKE to till with this thing!
