My backyard is more like gravel than dirt, I call is shale, but I'm not sure if that is accurate. Just digging holes for plants and trenching I use a pick-ax to loosen the dirt first and then scoop it out with a shovel. Will this tiller work well in this situation?

Answer
Mike,

These tillers were designed for more of a compacted dirt application. You might find yourself with too much resistance with a heavily rocky soil bed. The DRT900E would offer some success, but I think you would be looking at premature wearing of the transmission and the belts. You would probably lose a shear bolt or two.

I am interesting in ordering a rear tine tiller and would like to know what is the difference in counter rotation and dual rotation
Daryll Amberg

Answer
Daryll,

Dual rotation allows you to till with your tines moving forward away from you and backwards towards you. The reverse rotation is called counter rotation, and that is best for a deeper till. Forward rotation is mainly for cultivating.

Tillers that are labeled counter rotating only have the reverse function.

What advantage is there to the dual rotation on the tines?
Troy Johnston

Answer
Troy-

Like the counter-rotating tiller, the dual-rotating machine has one extra feature: It can work in both forward and reverse tine motions. Considered a higher-end tiller, this heavy-duty machine choice gives you the most versatility. For example, you may be tilling some very softer ground using the forward motion but then move on to an area that is extremely compacted. You can automatically switch into reverse gear so that the tiller's tines cut deeply into the soil without much effort from you.

How many horse power is this tiller?

Answer
Jeff - There is no true conversion from HP to cc's. A 205cc engine is roughly equal to 6 or 6.5 hp.
