First Tilling
After 37 years and two motor replacements, our old Ariens front tine tiller finally needed replacement. We ordered a now one from Tillers Direct with a trouble free, very smooth experience. I was very sceptical since the new tiller was much lighter with puny looking tines. And, after tilling about a half acre of gardens, the lighter model tends to leap and buck more than the old one. But the tines seem to really dig in and get the job done after a fashion. One bad feature is the clip that... more

Best Front Tine Tiller I Have Ever Used
Great front tine tiller, the Subaru engine starts easy and cant be stopped, great power and handles well for front tine. Just crank it up and hold on. I have had mine for over 2 years and I change the oil and cleaned the air filter and it runs great.

Better Packaging
I had to take offf time from my job to recieve my tiller. There was no bottom on the crate and so the tines were bent so I had to straighten them out. For me the hassle not worth it.
Cons: Packaging

No Complaints.
The tiller arrived timely and easy to handcart from street to house. Putting together-since I am 74 w/ bad knees, it took one hour. When I was 40, it would have been half that.

The instructions on the clutch cable were weird-just looking at the pix before attaching the handle. The depth stake was a short problem, the point is to the front, so that was a short puzzle. The right hole for clip and pin for the wheels requires sliding the wheel up and down to align the hole wanted. I used the... more

Great Tiller For The Price
Tiller works great, but the small wheels and top heavy design make it difficult to move any distances up and down hills to get to the garden. But once in the garden, I have no complaints.
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight, Fast, Reliable
Cons: Difficult To Use, Wheels Are Small Tiller Is Top Heavydifficult To Move To Site

Totally Satisfied
I'm satisfied with the prompt delivery and the quality of the Ariens front tine tiller. The old Ariens I had used (a rear tine) finally became too hard to keep running. The rear tine, when it was running was easy to use, but too large to get between the rows. For this reason I decided to try a front tine tiller. I knew it would not be quite as smooth, but more versatile in the long run. So after tilling my garden, I'm satisfied I made the right decision. Depending upon the dirt conditions... more

Tiller That Works For Both Me And My Wife
Our tiller was delivered in perfect shape. I filled it up and it started in 3 pulls and only takes 2 pulls, cold start now that it is broken in. The weather has been cold so we haven't used it much yet, but it seems well made and functional. So far we are very happy with our purchase.
