Best TIller Ever
After owning different tillers through the years, and literally being beat up, this tiller is the most comfortable easy using tiller I have owned. This model is very easy to start and tears up the hard clay of Arizona like is was running in sand.
I love this tiller and would recommend to everyone.

Do not buy this Tiller.
I purchased a Husqvarna DRT900 with a Briggs and Stratton 900 series engine. It is comfortable and it does a nice job. I am a mechanic so I made sure I greased it and did the oil changes. Only today as I was tilling and getting my garden in late at that . The engine locked up. The oil had silver metal fillings in it. It was only the third time I had ever used it. I have Husqvarna lawn mowers and chainsaws. I would never had imagined Husqvarna would put out a product like this. It looks like I am gonna have to change brands on my purchases.

Bought this tiller based on company ads. Had a Craftsman 17" tiller for years, always gave me dependable service never any problems. This tiller has been a disappointment. It bogs down and dies under load, had to pull back restart engine and restart row several times. Difficult to shift. This year upon initial start it froze up and would not function. Had to remove the cover from the drive belt, rotate pulley by hand and restart, worked OK for one day, next day had same problem this time belt came off and twisted. Not happy, wish I had kept my Craftsman.

Finally a tiller that works
The tiller meets expectations for our large garden in that it is easy to use at different depths and soil conditions.
The one drawback is the instruction manual where the information on installing the handle is unclear at a minimum. It took a trip to the dealership to figure out to install it.
Also it appears the lubrication chart is mislabeled. You don't put motor oil on wheel hub, you put grease

the tiller worked fine for the first few times I used it. May have put a total of 3 running hours on it. The only complaint up to the moment the engine failed was the shifter was hard to use and seemed poorly designed. The Honda engine started right up and provided plenty of power until it seized up. Lowes, where I bought it, told me it was a manufacture issue. Honda was hard to get ahold of and not very interested in fixing it but they did finally send me to the authorized repair folks who told me the engine model had a history of value problems. They did fix it so I was grudgingly ok with the whole thing. Took it home and used it once more for 30 minutes. it worked fine and put it away for winter. The other day I got it out for spring. The shifter was stuck in neutral but the engine started on the first pull. Fresh gas, turned the engine over a few times b4 starting to get the oil moved around inside. Ran great for 4 or 5 minutes while I tried to get the shifter free, then made a clanging noise and quit. It's in the repair shop, no warranty this time. I am will never trust it again. Now on my way to buy another tiller. Very disappointed. My Husqvarna chain saw has always been great so I was impressed with the brand, but this experience will make it hard for me to purchase another product. never did get the shifter to work.

Tiller does what it's told.
DRT900H is a decent unit. Love the ol' one pull Honda on it. Tills excellent in forward or reverse mode. Bunch of people complaining how it's tricky to shift. Well it wasn't made by Ford. Show me a tiller that shifts like butter then complain about this one.

Bought at a Lowe's. Pre assembled. Nothing was tight. Handle on left side was mounted so you have to hold it down. I turned it around and placed the lever under the handle so you could grip it safer. Very hard to hold it as the diagram on this web site shows. Belt guard design problem. Not enough clearance. Makes a rubbing noise any time unit runs. Some thing is not right. Have seen this posted before.
Runs ok. Started on 2nd pull. Before using check assembly this was unit was not correct.
