Q: 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
by Mike from Pennsylvania on July 14, 2011

A: 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

Q: Can this be delivered to my home? Does it run on regular gas? What does 4 cycle mean? My questions refer to the 900E Electric start Huskavara garden tiller. Do they make one with front end tines? Will they be on sale soon?
by Anonymous on June 10, 2011

A: Hello - yes, if you order this tiller from us, delivery is included in the price and delivery would be right to your home. This tiller uses regular grade (87 octane) gasoline. 4-cycle means that the engine has a separate gas tank and oil tank - just like a car. You do NOT have to mix the oil and gas together each time you use this tiller. There is one front tine model, but it is not as heavy duty as this model. It's the Husqvarna FT900 FT900 This model does not electric start.

Q: what is the Honda motor size?
Is the Honda unit also with electric starter? At age 71 I do not care to pull a starter cord!

by Nick from Georgia on May 09, 2011

A: This unit is going to be about a 6HP. This unit would have electric start, but it is not a Honda engine. The unit with electric start would be a Briggs and Stratton engine.

Q: Is the only difference between the Husqvarna DRT 900 and Drt 900E the electric start feature?
by Don Miller from Maryland on March 22, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. You are correct, the only difference between these two is the electric start.

by Richard from Nevada on March 19, 2011

Excellent Tiller
Tiller arrived within one week of order, well pleased with doing business with Mowers Direct. Tiller works great and did an excellent job, especially like the electric start. Would recommend to anyone considering a tiller.

Easy To Use
Love this tiller. The counter rotating tines really break up the ground and it's pretty easy to handle for all its power.

Accessory Model 960 93 00-14 (husqvarna Drt900e Tiller)
The Husqvarna came on a pallet, in a box. It was pretty simple to put the handles on and get it ready to till. I've only used it once since it was delivered but it worked very good the time it was used. It's not as sturdy, and well built as the older, Troy-Bilt tiller I own. No other tiller is. That's why the new Troy-Bilt's cost $2000. However, I've had some trouble keeping the Troy running. That's why I purchased the Husqvarna. I've found the Husqvarna to be easier to till between... more

Husqvarna Tiller Is Very Good
I have only had the Husqvarna DRT900E for a short time. There are a few changes I would like. The main problem I have found with this tiller is the gears are hard to change. Overall I think this is a very good tiller.

Easy To Use Tiller
We love the tiller! I'm only 5'3" tall and weigh 108 and I can till my garden with no problem. My husband really likes the electric start and reverse gear. It has a very nice balance to it. Only thing we noticed is a little play in the handle when you adjust for the users height.

I have a big garden area and this makes quick work of the job. We had a Troy Bilt Pony, and that thing drug me all over the garden, I couldn't control it.

Love It
I ordered this in January, received it from backorder in February, then had to sit out the snow and rain until last weekend (March 7,2011).

I got it out, fired it up and went to town. I have all hard-clay soil here, and it was soaked from a rain dump the day before so it was a challenge.

This tiller met it with ease and didn't wear me out too much. Hitting rocks slowed it down, but then, no tiller likes rocks.

My petite wife got behind it and she was able to handle it with... more
