Poor Quality, Cheap Transmission
I purchased this tiller today. I assembled it and it started on the first pull, good engine. The transmission broke after one minute in loose soil. I understand that I may have the only one that broke immediately, but as I looked at the warranty, it states that the transmission is not covered, You have been warned.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability

Nice Tiller
The only thing I can complain about is that the Briggs and Stratton engine on the tiller is Made In CHINA, I would have been happy to pay more for a Made in the USA engine! I'm so sick of all these sellouts, what do we make anymore?

Older Guy Needed Easier To Operate Tiller
I'm getting on in years and the old tiller I had finally gave out. It was difficult to maneuver and very weighty. I read the reviews on the Husqvarna rear tine and decided to try it. It is a great deal easier to maneuver, it's lighter in weight and has been operating like a charm. Even though I have some shoulder and leg problems, I can still do a 24' by 36' garden without too much problem. I can say that so far, this tiller is great for turning up the soil and cultivating.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Price, High Quality
Cons: Could Use A Shorter Gear Shifter

Good Product
Prompt Customer Service...No Damage Upon Delivery.
Briggs Ohv Engine Very Smooth/Easy to Start. Counter-Rotating Tines Make Machine Very Easy to Operate.
Transmission a Little Clunky At First...Then Smoothed Out...Machine Makes Short Work of Even Hard Compacted Soils..
If Machine Hold Up I Will Have to Give It An a+++++....Well Worth the Money.

Husqvarna Crt900
I bought this tiller because I needed to open up a new garden space in what had been lawn. My old Troy-Bilt Junior just was not up to the task. This tiller is unstoppable in chewing up sod and breaking new ground. The ground was a bit rocky, but the tiller had no trouble in pulling up fist sized rocks so I could pick them up. After breaking ground, I tilled in a huge amount of black dirt to the clay and sand that had supported the lawn. Not a problem for the new tiller. I now have a beautiful... more

I Did Not Believe It Would Start The First Pull
After I received the instructions I found that I had unpackaged it the wrong way however I had no problems. One part told me to put oil in the engine and the engine said it was full. I did add some oil which promptly ran out the overflow port . It did crank on the first pull my first project was a new garden spot with heavy grass which it promptly tilled the full depth. The only problems I have encountered is the gear shift sometimes is hard to move into the till mode and long grasses as... more
Pros: Price, Features, I'd Buy It Again, Durable

"I chose not to have the lift to unload and backed my pickup to the delivery truck and before I could get out and help the driver he had the tiller on the pickup. He even ask if he could help unload off the pickup. He was very helpful."

Great Tiller
I bought this tiller about three years ago and it's been completely reliable. I live in the Texas Hill Country just north of San Antonio and the ground here is very hard and rocky. We joke we have a quarter inch of topsoil and 5000 feet of limestone. Tiller does well even here. It's a heavy duty workhorse and I'm glad I bought it. Other than changing the oil and lubing it, I've done nothing but use it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Features, High Quality

Great Tiller
The assembly instructions for the handle were a bit confusing, but I figured it out. I was really impressed with how easy it started. I filled the tank with gas, moved the lever to the choke position and pulled the starter cord 1 time and it started immediately. I would reccomend this product.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Bad Instructions

Happy With The Tiller
The packaging on this is good and very difficult to get out if you are solo trying to get it out. So far the tiller has done a great job chewing through some tough soil that had many rocks in it. Didn't seem to lose any power. The only gripe I have is how wide the tilled area is. The shifter rod when I got it was on backwards, not sure how that happened. Took me a second to see that it kept rubbing on the drive assembly.
Pros: Price, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging

Mighty Husqvarna
Perfect for my 50x50 garden. Big enough, but small enough to get between rows. Makes quick work of tough soil.

I have not had any problems with the tiller it runs great. I would highly recommend this product.

The shipping crate could have been a little stronger, the pallet was busted, but no damage to tiller.

Good Deal
My Craftsman tiller's transmission quit and the cost was going to be about 500. So I bought this new Husqvarna. It arrived exactly when it was suppose to. With just a few minutes of putting the handles on, I was ready to go. The weird thing is that I believe this tiller was made by the same company that made the Craftsman. Almost every detail is the same except the color. The only draw backs are the throttle control is on the motor and not on the handle, and the lever to engage the tines is... more

Great Small Powerfull Tiller
This review is based on one month of ownership and two uses.

I recommend this 14" tiller for smaller areas, or hard soil. I tilled a 2,000 s.f. garden and it's nice to have the smaller tiller to turn around in a tight space and till hard packed soil without a big tine pulling you around. When I say small I don't mean weak or flimsy. It has plenty of power and a nice "heavy" weight to it, more like a bulldog compared to the Big Red tiller I used to use years ago that was more... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Store

Very Bad Choice On Our Part!
We purchased a new Husqvarna DRT900E rear tine rototiller within the last 2 wks. 1st use it stalled about 10 times just going around the outside edge of our garden. Then it picked up a small rock & bent the shroud so bad at the edge of the support bar underneath that it gouged the tire. HATE this machine! It's no more than a yard ornament as far as I'm concerned. Would NOT recommend this to my worst enemy.

TD RESPONDS: The tiller stalling is a problem that might be able to be solved by... more
