The Husqvarna FT900 front tine garden tiller is a perfect choice for homeowners who want to prepare gardens and flower beds without the back-breaking labor needed to do this with a shovel or spade. If you are working in soil that has been tilled previously, or you want to start a new garden in an area with soft soil, this is the machine for you.

The weight and size of Husqvarna FT900 front tine garden tiller makes it extremely easy to handle, maneuver, transport and store. The Husqvarna... more

Husqvarna Ft900 Rototiller
Works great. My only problem was that after 35 min. of use a little white smoke came out of right side of upper transmission shaft, which was too hot to touch, I oiled it and after running it 45 min. later there was no smoke and the shaft was less hot, so evidently the smoke was some gas burning off during break-in.

The manual says to run it with tillers upraised and running for 5 minutes before use, and oil the shaft where the chain goes down to the tillers inside the transmission. It has... more

"The internet notification of purchase should include date of purchase, so that any trouble later can use a dated receipt to establish ownership date for purposes of warranty use when the product is taken to dealer for repair/replacement. I had to download the shipping file from the shipper to get a piece of paper with PED order number and shipper and date of shipment and product name, to get that piece of paper for future warranty use."

Transmission Is Junk
after going through two different tillers and 3 transmissions, this model tiller is nothing but junk....as the above critical post says, the transmission is the weak link and will not last past the warranty period if it is used in any serious tilling situation....save your money because it will tear up not long after purchsing it

Seems To Get My Work Done Just Fine
So far amazingly easy to start. Actually starts on first compression stroke when I get all correct on my end.

Wish the main controls were easier to see /understand (on/off, choke etc.).

Surprised that the handles are so high, and cannot be set at a lower height.

The belt squeals more than I'd like.

Overall, runs well, gets job done. Meets my expectations--good buy.
Pros: Reliable, Price, I'd Buy It Again, Easy to start
Cons: Squeals too much (belt)

Had some hard ground in my back yard. This tiller ate it up for lunch. This is a great tiller for the money. You can't beat it - "awesome."

Very Solid Tiller!!
I purchased a new tiller after my old one died after 26 years. I'm very impressed with the Husqvarna. The power it shows is shocking. I wish this was around sooner. I hope this last as long as my last tiller!!

Reasonable Tiller
They're not as heavy as I'd like. Fine for previously tiled ground, not a good sod buster. Starts easy, runs nice, easy on gas. No fault other than it is what it is so there's limitations.
It's a 7 out of 10 overall. They're just not built like they once were, same as with anything else.
