Excellent Tiller, Very Well Made
I have about 50-60 hours usage on this tiller. Not one bolt has loosened. Starts on the 1st 1/2 pull every time so far. Digs nice and deep, really "fluffs" up the soil. This is an extremely well made tiller. It does not break new ground quite as well as my other tiller but it does so acceptably well. For the money and considering they offer a 5 year warranty on the complete machine, you really can't go wrong with this one. I am very impressed with it. I use it on three... more
Pros: High Quality, Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: not one

Earthquake Tiller Review
Just purchased the Earthquake 16" Victory. This was assembled by the dealer. So it was just a matter of filling it with gas and oil. My soil is on the sandy side, I have always used a front tine tiller, My experience with this rear tine tiller is that it struggles to move forward in my soil, I have to push it to get it to move. Tires could have been a little taller and with deeper traction bars. There isn't enough room between the rear of the tire and the front side of the tine guard to... more
Pros: Quiet, Price, Light Weight, High Quality
Cons: Difficult To Use, free wheel option sucks

Just A Tiller
I did buy this "Earthquake Victory (16") 212cc Counter Rotating Rear Tine Tiller", with my hope that I'll be able to use it on my 610 sq. ft. garden, to furrow my potatoes... Finally I did that, repeating two times hard work…! My check-up of the manufacturer’s constructional solutions, I found improper set-up of the hiller device, on the back of this tiller machine (perpendicular position)… Also the hiller should be constructed with a sharp (or sharper) angle to the ground, for... more
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Bad Instructions, Wheels to small

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
The Victory tiller is a CRT tiller. Hillers are best used with SRT designed tillers. This is standard through out the industry and here is why. CRT tillers are designed so that the tines rotate the opposite direction of the wheels. This is to assist with breaking new ground. As you till the tines act like a brake against the wheels. When the hiller furrower is attached to a CRT tiller it will act as if there is a second brake system and make it extremely difficult for the wheels to overcome both.

SRT tillers are tillers designed to have the tines and wheels drive the tiller forward and designed to pull the hiller. As of right now we do not offer a rear tine tiller that with a SRT design.

The design of the hiller has not changed since 2004. If the soil is building up between the tines and the hiller I would suggest removing the drag stake from the tiller when using the hiller.

I hope this was helpful.
