Not Too Sure Yet.
I purchased my DRT900 on February 23, 2012 and it was delivered on March 1, 2012. So far so good. No issues putting it together. Followed instructions and everything went fine. Added oil and gas and it started on the third pull. Not bad for a brand new tiller. Walked it to the back yard, running just fine. Started to till the area for the new garden. I live in NC and the soil is red clay but not compacted and was easy to till.

New garden is 25 feet long. Tilled one row and then... more

Not Happy At All
Sold my old Troy-Bilt Horse tiller and bought a Husqvarna DRT-900 based on Husq name. I have a number of Husqvarna chainsaws I use regularly on the farm and have had no problems in the years I've used them - tiller's another matter.

In the almost 5 years I've had it, it's spent more time in the shop than in the garden. Within two months the tranny went out - repaired under warranty. Next Spring the shift mechanism went out (first of three times) and the repair shop caught a prospective... more

"Did not buy the Husq from Tillers Direct, bought direct from Husq dealer. That said, everything I have bought from 'Direct' has proven 100% satisfactory and followup service is better than I get from local dealers."

Husqvarna Drt900
I purchased my tiller on Monday 22 Aug 2011 it arrived on Friday 26 Aug. I had the lift gate service, the driver pallet jacked it into the garage. It took half an hour to assemble. Mine came with the front bumper, which I was not expecting? However It has no engine oil dipstick, supposedly its optional???

I used it for an hour on Friday evening, it performs very well breaking up new ground. If you follow the owners manual there is no problem with drive selection. Yes it is fairly... more

Great Machine
This is my first rototiller purchase. After many hours of researching I decided on this rototiller. It is a nice machine...starts FIRST pull every time. Easy to run. Shifter is clunky at times, but think this is because it is built strong. I just pull the handle lever in and it goes into gear easily. Really digs well and with the tines going in reverse, really goes deep. My soil is like sand. Thank you, Husqvarna!

Our New Tiller
We ordered the Husqvarna rototiller from mowers direct. The tiller arrived in two days and was easy to assemble and to use. The truck driver who delivered our tiller right out to the farm was very cordial and really seemed to me that he enjoyed delivering new equipment to people.

We have been truly happy with the tiller although we can't use it much now we look forward to using it quite a bit in the future. Thank you mowers direct for your business on the web.

Husqvarna Drt900
Received tiller from MowerDirect via R&L Carriers. After unpacking and fast assembly, added gas, first pull start up. Excellent. Took it to vegetable garden and tilled unused area per operation instructions. It worked like a champ. Would recommend the tiller and MowersDirect to a friend. I bought a snow blower last fall and had the same great experience.

Thanks!

Great Tiller, Lower Price Than Big Box Stores...
I looked for a tiller for our medium size garden. I settled on the DRT900 because of the features. Nowadays, you pay a premium for the name "Troy Bilt" and they aren't as good as they were. This DRT900 is awesome and has all the features, All the controls you need are at the handle, it has reverse, and the two tine modes depending on the job. I researched the DRT900, and saved almost $125 by buying from MowersDirect over the big box home improvement stores. Stores here wanted $63... more

Husky Drt900
I probably did not need this much tiller, but for a few decades I have always heard to get a rear tine if you get one. I did a lot of research to see which model got the best and most consistent rating, and read the bad reviews mainly to judge what similar problems may be.

I decided upon the DRT900 with the Briggs engine rather than the Honda due to a few better ratings. The added plus was the Briggs was slightly cheaper. I have used this tiller so far to uproot flower beds and till the... more

Great From Start To Finish!
This Husqvarna rototiller was my first purchase from Mowers Direct, and I couldn't be happier. After reading reviews, comparing with other brands & models, and shopping prices, I decided on this model from Mowers Direct. The freight service called me the day before scheduled delivery & gave me a one hour delivery window, and arrived right in the time frame - I've never experienced such great service! The driver unloaded the tiller & took it right to my garage door. Easy to... more

Not Bad
It's okay for what I paid for it, not like the old Troy-Bilt I had, but they make junk now. It's fine.

My New Tiller
Hello, just a note to let you know that i am very happy with my new tiller. It was delivered on time and in perfect condition. It was easy to setup and very easy to start. I am a 60 yr old women and this drt900 tiller is great. I tilled a 30x50 garden in 3 hours. So easy to operate, all i had to do was guide it, the tiller does all the work. This is a wonderful machine.

Also, the delivery man was great very pleasant and helpful.

Free and prompt shipping. So far this has been an excellent tiller. Starts on first pull and has been used several times to first till and then cultivate my 25x100 foot garden. I would recommend this tiller.

I'd Do It Over Again
Broke ground with this tiller....24 by 14 foot plot. The soil here is rocky and I did run into some 3 to 4lb rocks.
Tough job for any tiller. I had no problems with this machine. I did not break any shear pins - I was expecting that I would. The one pitfall with this machine is the transmission. Really, really sloppy. You must be perfectly in line with the shifter or it will stall out the engine. Other than that it starts on the first pull and did what I expected it to do. I did till... more

Review, Drt900
The machine starts easily and does a fine job tilling or cultivating and has plenty of power. However, the shifting of the transmission is less than smooth and could certainly be better. That said, it is good buy and a good machine.

Works Great
This Tiller Works Great. Using the Counter-Rotating Mode, It Will Till Up Just About Anything.

the Main Reason I Went For This Model Was the Briggs & Stratton Engine. It Has Lots of Power, and It Starts Really Easy.

Good Choice
I do not believe that I could have made a better choice than the machine that I bought.

It is so easy to handle, a child could master it as quickly as I did. What I am trying to say is it takes all of the work at getting your garden ready to plant.

My next project is to till up my yard in back of the house and plant about a half acre of Kentucky bluegrass. The area where I am using the machine has been cut out of the wilderness and is very inhospitable, but this machine can do whatever... more
