I am getting old enough that using a front tine tiller is too hard on my back. I am looking at a rear tine tiller or possibly a pull behind tiller for my lawn/garden tractor.
Rear tine tillers come in 4 flavors - Counter rotating, Front rotating, Dual Rotating and Vertical Tine (not axis). Anyone have preferences or like to share there experience with rear tine tillers? I really can’t tell what type of rear tine tiller I should get (CR, FR, DR, or Vertical).
I am using the tiller on a plowed garden spot that is roughly 35 ft x 90 ft. I will use it periodically to break up new ground to plant fruit trees.
My garden tractor is a high end Husqvarna with a Kawasaki 24HP engine (maybe 25?). I paid to get the model with the better transmission (not the Lowes low end models) so I believe it is capable of pulling a powered rototiller, something like agrifab offers. Anyone have experience or recommendations they would like to share.
My current front tine tiller is a 5.5 hp that came from Sears 16 years ago. It was not perfect but it still runs fun. Only fix was to replace a cracked gas tank. Would like to find something similar.
