Big motor but shifts hard at times.
The DRT900 is a awesome tiller to break ground or larger tilling jobs. It had no problems on hard packed clay when using the tines in reverse direction regardless of depth selected. It is a big tiller to to do small jobs but then again you didn't buy this for your flower garden. The only issue I have is sometimes it will hang in gear and wont shift without a little bit of extra force. Then only question I had prior to purchase is whether to spend the extra money on the Honda engine which I didn't. Hope it continues to work as well as it does now.

Starts on one pull
The tiller starts on the first pull and is economical to operate. On my first use I was amazed at the small amout of fuel I had used. Operates good and easy to control.
Only complaint is having to hold the lever to operate. My hand gets kind of tired. Also the exhaust should exit the front instead of the back of the tiller.

My rear yard is over 1 acer. The tiller only take about 1/2 gal to tilling 1 time. Super gas saver.

Excellent for the price,and features
Had it all put togather in less than a half hour. check it all out and gave it a try, my 90 year mother also gave it a try she liked it very much. Very easy to use on her close to 1/4 acher lot. It is well worth the price of $749.00

AMAZING machine !
Now you have to use it as a machine and get used to how to use it . We have TOMBSTONE clay around here . No Problem .
It powers thru the toughest "soil" If it is wet then it will work different than if it is dry soil.
I think the tines are what makes the machine work so well . Other similar tillers don't have the design to make the poorest soil into better than screened top soil that I have purchased .
I have a steep hill and it still does a great job , up or down.
A lesser Machine would not do what this tiller does...
It is not a toy and Wife can operate it . With a few minutes of careful instructions she was away and happy in her garden.
One has to be careful operating the gear selector , and be sure that is is where you want it to be .
Of course you need to be paying Full attention ...
Our neighbours and the members of the local Horticultural Society are interested in using it.
So looks like I willl be busy .
Makes FAST work out of a hard job, and does it VERY well.
I am Really Impressed with the great job it does ...
Easy starting .

Couldn't be happier
In this price range, I haven't seen anything come close to what Husqvarna offers with the DRT900. We broke new ground for a garden and the tiller performed just how I expected. Granted, no tiller will eat through a rock, and I am aware of that. Excellent performance.
The one downside is that the depth adjustment bar catches on the rear guard when you are lowering it from the "transport" position. Minor inconvenience.
I can't comment on the overall durability as we have only had it for one season. No issues so far though, my wife can even start it with one pull.

The DRT900 is a great tiller
Tiller has plenty of power. Easy to use. Tills the soil in a manner that I appreciate. I would buy the tiller I have again. I have owned two tillers before my DRT900 and the DRT900 is the best by far.
