After extensive research, my husband and I settled on the CRT900. Reasons? 1-taller wheels, so less likely to 'bog' in dirt; 2-rear tine action means no "bouncing" on soil surface; 3-unit seemed solidly built. First, there was no bogging. We have clay and the tiller wasn't even bothered. Worked our garden wonderfully with absolutely no problems. The only problem we had was figuring how to put the handle lock into the handle. #newbies here# Once we figured that silly little thing out, we followed the steps given in a short YouTube video online, powered it up, and went to work. Both of us got behind the "wheel", maneuvering the tiller through tight spots with little problems. Shifting sometimes was difficult #wouldn't go into forward, but would go into forward w/ tines#. All in all a good machine. We will be installing grass later this year/early next, so will be tilling about 1500 sq. ft. worth of area. I look forward to using this tiller, since our 26 x 10 ft. garden tilled with such ease! Only problem was the Husqvarna manufacturing location that wasn't paying attention to our order. Fortunately Lowe's interceded for us so we could get our tiller after waiting over 3 weeks.

When I received the tiller, I found that the "drive/engage" control lever was installed ABOVE the handle (and not BELOW the handle). I thought that was weird and I immediately questioned the quality control at Husqvarna. Then, the 2nd time I used the tiller it suddenly stopped moving forward, though the engine was running fine. I found that the drive pulley had fallen off the drive shaft! After remounting the pulley it of course worked fine again. But who put this particular machine together? While I was reinstalling the pulley, I noticed the frame nearest the front counter-balance weight was missing some metal! It was as if the factory had purposely ground off a crack in the frame rather than scrapping the whole frame and starting anew. Had I bought this machine from a local dealer, I would have returned it as defective. But I bought it online and didn't want to deal with the hassle of returning it. I'll be watching the frame and if a crack develops, I'll just weld something over it I suppose. The other troublesome thing about this machine is the way that it is difficult to get the transmission into gear. Others have reported the same problem, so that is not specific to my particular machine (I can deal with it but I don't like it).

It worked last year...
Well, it worked one season. That's good right? It wasn't that easy to start last year but this year it tried to fire 5 times out of the 150 times I've tried to start it in the last two days... but will not start or run. I even put a new plug in it and adjusted the fuel, choke, and throttle every which way except apparently the right way. I never thought I'd have to worry about a warranty or repair on a Husqvarna but I guess I will. All I have to do now is figure out how I'm going to get a repair or get this thing to a repair shop. I'm sorry, but I just can't recommend this product to anyone. Year two of ownership has been nothing but a headache.

Easy assembly took 30 minutes. Easy to operate, but difficult to shift gears. The engine started the first time. Tines broke up compacted dirt easily. After two passes, broke up into fine dirt with a depth of six inches. I was planting tomatoes and needed a depth of eight inches, so made a total of four passes which gave me that depth.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Had the first one home & used for about 15 minutes before the tines stopped turning. Contacted the seller who had me bring it in. They gave me a new one saying they have had trouble with these being returned for the same issue. Worry that this will not last. Hoped buying a brand name would help ensure a trouble free product. Growing season in Montana is very short. Could have had garden planted by now but for this problem. Disappointed to say the least. Handle needs to be longer as well. Have to stoop to use- even with adjustment still not long enough.

great tiller for smaller gardens
from Idaho Falls, ID
Purchased to till our 25' by 40' garden. The 14" tiller is perfect and we can easily handle the tiller. Both my husband and I used the tiller - and both got great results. Had used an old 17" rear-tine tiller in the past and tilling was a huge challenge for my husband in our smaller sized garden which is bounded on all sides by concrete walks. I would strongly recommend this tiller for those with smaller gardens and especially for operators who want to be in control of their tiller. Both my husband and I LOVE this tiller.

"out of Luck"
from Hillsboro oregon
My tiller was purchased brand new from Pacific tractor in Hillsboro Oregon. It never shifted easily and after 8 uses (8hrs) i took it back to the dealer for a check up. They told me the transmission is forever broke and there are no parts to fix it!!!!Guess i'll not go back there, unless it's to throw the thing in the parking lot!!!

from Red Ranger
Had my last tiller 20 years, decided it was time for a new one. Did much research and the CRT900 seemed to have best value for required capabilities. Well-made, powerful, neutral and reverse gears. Great tiller, recommend.

Husqvarna CRT900 tiller
from Puget Sound
After ~5 hrs of use, very pleased with the tiller. Assembly out of very sturdy shipping box was easy. Tiller did well in hard, pebble-laden soil as well as in sodded area. Relatively easy to control after a couple hours of use. Doing several passes with increasing tilling depth rather than attempting to do everything in one pass makes it easier on man (or woman) and machine. Shifting transmission is a little balky, annoying sometimes. Engine stopped right away when big pebbles/rocks blocked tines, without breaking anything or cutting shear pins - which is good IMHO. Engine is easy to start so far. Changing oil is somewhat messy as there's no extension of the drain to put a container under. Engine came WITH oil (B&S engine manual says otherwise). Mechanical impression: weakest part is transmission - feels insubstantial compared to the rest of the machine.Not so pleased with dealer (L) where tiller was bought - unreliable delivery.
It is a beast
I have had this tiller now for 12 years and still going strong. had only one issue and that was a bad gear from the factory but customer service took care of me and my tiller. What can you say bad about a company that stands behind what they sell. I have also hit a couple of bricks in the yard where I wanted the garden and BROKE them with no problem. (I would not recommend trying it) this says something about how durable it is and tilling I placed it in the yard on grass that had been there for years and tilled it up as deep as it would go on the first pass. Try that anyone else. looked like there was no grass to start. I'll put this tiller against any tiller out there. hands down it is one of the best.
My favorite yard tool
from Johnson City
I've been using my tiller for about a month. It was the 4th one I got after returning 3. I love it! It starts first pull every time and has good power. I am reshaping my mountainous yard a little at a time and haven't heard the engine struggle. It does stop when a rock jams it up but I consider that good. With my yard it will find plenty of rocks and will get a real test. I hesitated about paying $599 but I am so glad I did.
