You need a rear tine tiller
About Me Do-It-Yourself
Comments about CRT900:
This is not a cheap mid-tine or front tine piece of equipment, the rear tine tiller can dispatch a gardenbed in short order.People may run into trouble with shifting gears. Here's how you avoid that: ALWAYS shift to neutral BEFORE moving the tiller in any other direction than: FORWARD if you are in FORWARD gear; or BACKWARDS if you are in REVERSE. If you move the wheels in other directions while in gear, you may knock the drive belt out of place.When you want to move the tiller in any other direction, FIRST shift to NEUTRAL.When you want to shift from FORWARD gear to REVERSE, shift to NEUTRAL for a moment and properly position the tiller; don't just crank straight through.Hope this helps.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good Choice -- Best Value for the Money
By d@niel / cowcreekgeek

Let's start by saying I really did my research, and that I gave this purchase a great deal of thought, even though it's a no-brainer:Higher torque and faster rotation, but in an even narrower path (14 v. 17), gives a greater ability to tear through our compacted clay.Smaller wheels would prove useless here.Anything even close to this thing costs nearly twice as much, and although I really need a walk-behind tractor? This gets me by 'til I can find a bargain on one, and will still prove useful once I do ... on paths and around slopes, between beds, inside greenhouses, where the other'd be entirely too big to fit.Not perfect, now that I've been using mine, but still very happy with my choice:It DOES cut dense sod, and it CAN break clay.It COULD run a bit faster, and operate more smoothly, but ... how much you gonna ask for under six hundred bucks?As an added benefit, for those concerned, the engine bolts right up to many other tools (e.g. the tazz chpper I just ordered), allowing for greater flexibility when repairs are required. I think this 950 Series will outlast Kohler's 2000 Series, so my later larger replacement will probably go onto this tiller instead (swapping motors is relatively simple ~;-)I do find the 14" width to be an advantage, and the counter rotating tines are ideal here. It is well-balanced, and easy to handle.
Just finished my 4th spring season.i work an over half acre garden.Fires right up and never bogs down.
Better than doing it by hand!

WORKS VERY WELL! I've had my tiller for over a week now and have tilled my garden and my mother's garden. It really gets in there deep if you know what I mean!

I like the engine... it starts easy, runs smooth, has good power, and is easy on the ears. It tills well and handles well. Shifting gears (fwd, rev, neutral, engage) most times is good but occasionally the gears don't mesh together and grind. The shifter shaft is keyed with a flimsy aluminum rivet that fell out leaving the shifter lever inoperative after about 6 hours of use. I had to drive it back in. The control trigger on the handle engages the idler pulley just fine, but every so often releasing the control trigger does not completely disengage resulting in the tines continuing to turn... there is not a spring to pull back on the idler pulley. The design appears to rely on the idler pulley to disengage on its own. The main problem for me is that after about 8 hours of use the handle broke right off in my hands. It is welded to a single shaft that bolts to the tiller's frame. The weld failed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

You buy a roto tiller so you don't have to work so hard. Don't get this one. You will have to push and fight with it every inch. As much effort as if I had dug it by hand. What a piece of (well, you know). Counter rotating tines are self defeating. Don't even try it on sod. Even in powdered dirt it just sits and spins. I really, really miss my old troybuilt.
