What to think about when buying a tiller

Tillers are great for breaking up a lawn or prepare a garden patch for sowing. We have gathered some advice to think about before you are looking to buy a new tiller.

Our range comprises two different types of tillers: rear-tine and front-tine.

Will you be doing heavier work? Get a rear-tine!

For large and open areas a rear-tine counter-rotating tiller and generous working width is the most suitable.

The rear-tine tillers are designed for use on densely packed earth and lawns. With powered wheels and counter-rotating tines these machines break up soil very effectively. 

Doing some minor gardening? Get a front-tine!

The front-tine tillers are suitable for smaller landscaping work, such as preparing flowerbeds and garden patches. These tillers are driven by the tines and are available with working widths from 24 cm to 85 cm. The smaller models are perfect for tighter garden spaces and can also be fitted with accessories for various garden tasks.

General advice when buying a tiller

For versatile garden tasks you might consider buying a front-tine tiller with accessories for moss raking, edging, scarifying and ploughing. If you have many small patches and flower beds in your garden you should make sure that the tiller you choose has carrying handles or transport wheels. For optimum manoeuvrability and control our tillers have a reverse gear.
