One of the few dual rotating tillers on the market, the Husqvarna DRT900 offers the advantages of both a forward rotating cultivator and counter rotating deep soil tiller. The 9.0 gross torque engine is powerful and able to handle the conditions a homeowner might experience. The DRT900 has a sealed transmission for long life and a sturdy frame.

I ordered this tiller through Lowe's as opposed to purchasing the DRT900H, which has the smaller Honda engine. The engine on the DRT900 is a Briggs & Stratton.This tiller is a real workhorse and will till deep if the ground has been softened with water or rain.Although I disliked the old-style handle bar design at first, the handles make it possible to turn the tiller very quickly in order to avoid plants while tilling between rows. When re-tilling rows, it is possible to walk beside the tiller and control it with one hand.The clutch control causes hand fatigue if long rows are being tilled, but I adapted by using a loose fitting ziptie to engage the clutch for long runs.I have had no problem shifting gears as long as I lift up on the handlebars and rock the machine slightly before shifting.Turning the DRT900 on a dime is easy if the proper technique is used. As soon as the end of the row has been reached, back the tiller up into the hole created by the tines. After shifting into forward gear, push sideways on the handlebars while using the clutch to cause the tires to rotate slightly; with some practice, the tiller will turn in a 180 degree semi-circle in space as wide as the tiller.The only technical issue is a problem with the aluminum bracket that holds the throttle cable in place. If the throttle control is used to power down the tiller, the stiffness from the cable will bend the bracket and cause the cable to come loose. I bent the bracket back twice, but realized that that it will eventually break if bent repeatedly; as a workaround, I leave the throttle engaged at full, and kill the engine using the choke.Husqvarna is superior in most areas to other tillers in the same price range, and for that reason it's the only tiller I will buy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

6 Foot Tall

My only problem is I am 6 Foot Tall and the handlebars do not adjust to my height while tilling. MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT THIS THING IS A BEAST and will chew through the ground with ease. (ROOTS) no problem
