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.

Love this tiller. Easy to use with great power. Usually starts on first try. Used to prepare a garden spot for the first time. Had no problems preparing the hard ground. Just wish it had a speed control on the handle. This is the third Husqvarna product I own. Great Products

Although I've had this machine for a short time, I'm very pleased with it. It starts easily, very good depth control. Very easy to handle, does a great job.

I've had a tiller for about 22 years and needed to replace it. After purchasing the CRT900 and checking it over I put it right to work. It's main job is cultivating the garden, it worked excellent. Never had a tiller with reverse but I wouldn't have one without now. I used it to make a couple of flower gardens for my wife, a shallow cut to remove the sod and then set it as deep as I needed.

Great product great service
I purchased this tiller after pricing similar models to rent. I have since put around 20 hrs on the machine. Not all easy ones either. It starts easy and runs great. The fuel economy has suprised me with how long a tank of fuel lasts. I did break one tine with a rock while expanding the garden. I figured that is what happens sometimes. I went in to purchase a replacement tine and found out that they are warrentied for life. The service techs had not seen a broken tiller tine before and it was replaced at no charge. I have nothing but good things to say so far about the machine, and I expect it to be running for years to come.

This tiller is perfect for small gardens.
This tiller is great for small gardens. It starts on the first pull every time. I only have a small garden but need to make ity just a little larger. I first tilled the first inch or two to get the grass loose so I could rake it up with ease. I then raised the depth stake all the way just to see how it would handle and dig. It suprised me how good it tilled up the ground. I would recommend this tiller to other persons looking to put in a small garden.

I'm glad I;m a retired mechcanic.
Removed from crate, installed the handle, checked the oil, and there was no oil in it. I even tilted it up to see if any oil ran out, but there was none. Gased it up, and started on first pull, but there was no forward, or reverse. Removed side cover, and saw that the belt was off the idler pulley.Fixed that, and it ran for about 5 minuted, and the belt came off the pully. I found out that the steel plate was bent that holds the pully on. Fixed that. The belt needs to be replaced because the belt was riding on the side of the pully. The belt is shreaded on the one side, because the plate was bent. Disabled Vet from Pa.
