Q: Is the reverse gear on this FT900 tiller belt driven or chain driven?
by John Liptak from Illinois on February 08, 2013

A: John,

The transmission is chain driven. The chain is internal and isn't depicted on parts diagrams so it can be confusing.

Manual Chain Drive Transmission
•One gear forward and one reverse

Great Tiller
Shipping was fast and easy. Tiller started on first pull, and it tills tough soil easy. The wheels leave a little to be desired, aren't much good in soft dirt. Tiller is better than I expected.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

Unfortunately Disappointed
I own several Husqvarna equipment and have relied on their quality performance. I purchased a tiller in January 2012......used it in March 2012 for the first time. My project was small....clearing area for wildflowers etc. On or about the 5th time I used it, the clutch apparently went out on the transmission part of the motor. I could not figure out what was wrong and had assumed (hoped) that something had simply become detached etc. After several hours I gave up. It is rather heavy but I was... more
Cons: Unreliable, Bad Instructions

Gary,
Gary,

We are very sorry you had the issue you did with this machine. While it may not make much of a difference now something like this should have been covered under warranty and it would have been something we can help out with in terms of getting fixed.

Runs Very Good
I think the angle of the piston with relation to the crankshaft gives it more torque at a lower rpm.
Pros: Price, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Ft900 Tiller Good Machine But
Bought this machine because it has the B/S engine which I thought was made in USA...Wrong..Its made in CHINA like all other entry level engines. I found this out after buying this machine. It is easy starting and runs good. The service I received from Tillers Direct was great, no complaints. Once I started using the machine several design flaws surfaced. No Throttle control on the handle, it's on the engine. Bad idea. So I spent $5.00 and bought a throttle cable and installed one. It's way... more

Junk Tiller
I bought this tiller new last summer 2012. Had 10 hours on it and the transmission bearings went bad. Sent it out and it came back with bolts missing and a new transmission was installed. Just used it for two hours and the same problem happened again. Now it's off for another transmission install. This thing is junk. When the third transmission goes I get my money back. I wanted Sears to take this piece of junk back now, but they won't till it comes back three times for the same issue. They had... more

Husgvarna Tiller
I am a produce farmer, and sell in local farmer's markets in Houston, TX. Needed a heavy duty tiller for 3 acre truck farm. Have used it now for a month, and it has performed well. I particularly like the gas line turn-off switch so as not to build up as much 'gunk' in the lines or carburetor. I do notice that the belts squeal at times. All in all I am very satisfied with the tiller.

No Disappointments Here
Did a lot of research and window shopping before buying this tiller. Local equipment seller had it on sale for over $700 plus tax. I was a bit nervous about buying a tiller on-line due to shipping considerations should there be a problem. Decided for the price it was worth it and without a doubt it certainly was. Arrived in good time in good order. Some oil leakage on box so I took picture and noted it on receipt. Apparently some leakage from laying box on side, as no leaks in unit. Be sure... more

Mr.christoher M Austin
Just to add to my first review. I also took the tiller into the back yard to make a food plot for the wild animals here. It cut the soil perfectly, like I said before I live in Pennsylvania and its one big rock. The tiller at times jumped all over. Mind you I should have never done this. Rocks the size of the tops of garbage cans came up. Now the animals have a nice green plot started. I don't recommend anyone to do this but it worked for me. The tiller is a front tine for only light duty, but... more

Me And My Large Garden
I love it and the price is half of what most retailers charge. One problem though, two of the bolts included were supposed to be 2 3/4 inches long and they were, all six, 1 1/2 inches. I had to go to a hardware store to get the correct length bolts. The machine runs like a champ and the reverse handle works miracles when getting around 90 degree corners.

Husqvarna Ft900
This is by far the worst piece of equipment I have ever owned. It only had maybe 1 hour on it and transmission started leaking oil. I brought it to a Husqvarna service center and they replaced the transmission. I used it about 15 minutes and transmission started leaking again. Brought it back to service center and they got with Husqvarna and they said it can leak because it has enough oil to last a lifetime, which is impossible. Husqvarna said the only way they would fix it or give me my... more
