Buying guide for Cultivators and Tillers

Whether you need to break up a lawn or prepare a garden patch for sowing, Husqvarna has a cultivator or tiller for you. Our range comprises two different types of cultivators: rear-tine and front-tine. The rear-tine models are designed for use on densely packed earth and lawns. With powered wheels and counter-rotating tines these machines break up soil very effectively.

The front-tine cultivators are suitable for smaller landscaping work, such as preparing flower beds and garden patches. These cultivators are driven by the tines and are available with working widths from 6" to 18.5". These models are perfect for tighter garden spaces and can also be fitted with accessories for various garden tasks.

Things to keep in mind when buying a cultivator or tiller:

  • For large and open areas a rear-tine counter-rotating cultivator is the most suitable.
  • For quiet and environmentally responsible operation choose the Husqvarna TB 1000 battery cultivator.
  • For versatile garden tasks you might consider buying a front-tine cultivator with accessories for dethatching, edging, aerating and plowing.
  • For optimum versatility choose a tiller equipped to both counter rotate for tilling and forward rotate for cultivating.
