Looking at buying a vertical tine tiller. What are the pros and cons of the vertical tine. I can not find any reviews on this tiller
Mark Smith 
from Iowa

Answer
Mark - the vertical tine technology is BRAND NEW to the market this year (2015). That's most likely why you aren't seeing any reviews yet. The big benefit of the vertical tine tillers is that they operate much more smoothly and with a lot less vibration than a traditional tiller does, so there's not near as much fatigue on the operator. The tines also seem to pulverize the soil more consistently with less "clumping". The one downside thus far seems to be that users don't feel you can till as fast as you can with a traditional tiller - the forward speed needs to be slower for the vertical tines to work most effectively.

I have been looking for reviews on this machine as I am quite excited about the new design. I am wondering how thick the tine steel is.

Answer
Jay,

The tines are 0.180" thick. The reviews should be coming in soon as we sell tillers with spring approaching.

For reference a quarter inch = 0.250" and an eighth inch = 0.125".

The vertical tine concept looks sensible. Is the design too new to make final determination? I want a tiller that will dig deep in relatively hard/clay soil, and also continue to do the job of cultivating throughout the growing season. Will the vertical tine deal with rocks as well as the rear tine design? Also, is Cub Cadet the only vertical tine available?

Answer
Robert,

This is a newly designed tiller so the reviews will be filtering in over these next couple of months. The tilling depth ranges from 1"-6.5" which you can set using the depth set pin. Standard rear tine tillers will handle rocks better than this vertical tine tiller. One tine spins clockwise and one tine spins counterclockwise. These tines meet in the middle as they spin which could make a pinch point trapping rocks where the tines meet. Right now this is the only vertical tine tiller we carry.
