Hi - I'm building a fence around my garden and am interested in the width of the Cub Cadet RT65 and Husqvarna DRT900/DRT900H so I know how wide I need to make the gate. Don't want to build a fence and find I can't get the tiller into the garden!
Roger 
from Colorado 
September 02, 2013
Answer
Roger,

We are looking at a max width of about 23" when the RT65 is fully assembled, and the DRT900/900H are the same size with a max width of about 20.5".

If you have any further questions, always feel free to contact me directly at 800-710-7499 Ext. 133.

I'm always happy to help!

Is there a tiller available or modifiable to be key start. 40 years of line work have left my shoulders unable to pull start ropes. Thanks Morris
Morris Grayson 
from Texas 
March 05, 2012
Answer
Morris - we do not carry a key start tiller model, but how about a push button starter? The Husqvarna DRT900E has an electric start feature that allows you to start the engine by pushing a button instead of pulling on the starter cord. You would plug in the starter box to any household electrical outlet using a standard extension cord. Push the starter button and when the engine fires, you unplug the extension cord and start tilling. Click on this link to see the tiller: Husqvarna DRT900E

Hi. Will you explain the 'dual rotating' tines verses the 'counter rotating' tines. I am perplexed in buying between these two features. Thank you! Mike

Answer
Mike - you may want to take a look at our buyer's guide for rear tine tillers. This will answer your question in detail, and give you some other things to think about and look for when choosing the right tiller. Just click on this link: Pick the perfect tiller

Where are the Husqvarna tillers mmanufactured. It seems as though the Briggs engines are made in the USA but what about the rest of the product. Also, In reference to the tube bumper on the front of the DRT 900. If a product doesnt come with something why on earth would you portray it as such? Kind of deceptive if you ask me.
Robert Cape 
from Pennsylvania 
May 23, 2011
Answer
Robert - these tillers are manufactured in Orangeburg, SC and in Troy, NY. As for the image of the tiller showing the bumper, this is the "approved" product image that comes from Husqvarna. If you go the Husqvarna web site, or look at their 2010 or 2011 product catalogs, you will see the exact same image that appears on our web site.
+
thanks very much for answering the previous question. Is the difference between the CRT900 and DRT900 the counter rotating tines on the CRT and the bumper being the main difference? The description in the Husqvarna product book seems to say they both have dual rotation tines. thank you very much for your reply.
Jason Crook 
from New Hampshire 
May 18, 2011
Answer
Jason - A CRT model would have counter rotating tines only. A counter rotating tine model is suited for digging deeper into the soil and for tilling tightly compacted soil or clay-like soils. A DRT model is a dual rotating tine tiller. On a dual rotating model, the tines will either turn forward for cultivator-like tasks, or in a counter rotating fashion as described above. The CRT models are less expensive - the DRT models cost more, but are more versatile. NONE of the Husqvarna CRT or DRT model tillers include the front bumper as a standard feature.
+
the husqvarna dealer here in NH gave me a book w/all the Husq products. They show the DRT900 without the bumper as you show it, but the picture of the CRT900 or the CRT900LS (B&S and Honda engines respectively) in their book shows the models with the bumper and the exact photo that you show for the DRT. I was trying to find the difference between the two. Can you comment or straighten out my confusion? thank you.
Jason Crook 
from New Hampshire 
May 17, 2011
Answer
Jason - the DRT900 does not have a front bumper. We clearly state that in our description of this product on our web site that the front bumper is pictured but NOT included. None of the Husqvarna CRT or DRT tiller models include the front bumper as a standard feature.
+
I have two questions. 1) Do these Husqvarna tillers have a free wheeling or neutral position ? 2) Do the models that say they are equiped with a Briggs & Stratton actually come with a Briggs or do they actually come with one of the chinese knock offs that I have seen on some of their other products out there on the show room floors ?
Bob Cape 
from Pennsylvania 
May 15, 2011
Answer
Bob - yes, this tiller does have a neutral position that would allow you to push the tiller without the wheels being turned by the drive system. The Briggs engine on this tiller is a Briggs engine - manufactured by Briggs and Stratton.

Is the Husqvarna DRT900 17" dual rotating rear tine tiller self propelled?
Sharon 
from Maryland 
April 30, 2011
Answer
Hi Sharon - yes, this tiller has a chain gear drive system with one forward speed and one reverse speed, so the tiller does propel itself - it does not have to be pushed.

Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. You take your tiller to a local Husqvarna servicing dealer where they would take care of any warranty work.

Todd, as far as reliability and lasting for years, would you personally buy a Husqvarna CRT 900, a Troy Bilt bronco 14 " (both the same price), or an Earthquake for around the same price?. Or some other brand you carry? Thanks, George
George Gutknecht

Thanks for your inquiry. This Husqvarna DRT900 would be your best choice. It is durable and will give you years of long lasting performance. It is our best selling model and we have seen no issues with them whatsoever.

Hi Todd, i've not gardened in some yrs. I no longer work so gonna try it this yr. I've not used many tillers, and currently have a Troybilt Pony 5hp old model,rear tine, foward rotating. This thing will kill you to use it. when it hits a hard spot, it will leap to the end of the garden. Does all forward rotating do this ?? I am interested in the Husqvarna drt900. Is this shipped to my home ? What type of warranty ? Thanks Dave
Dave

We can ship this model directly to your home and the tiller has a two year warranty through Husqvarna.
