Rear Tine Tiller?
I'm in the market for a rear tine tiller. I've been searching on ebay + craigslist for about 3-4 months. I was hoping to find an old style troy build tiller but haven't had any luck. I've noticed that even when i found a descent used rear tine the asking price is to the point where you might as well go out and get a new one.
Anyways, pretty much what i have local is Sears & Lowes. It appears that almost all the tillers these days are made my MTD so no matter which brand you choose your looking at nearly the identical thing no matter if its a cub cadet, crafstman, Pollan, or Troy Built. So you might as well just look for the best price. Am i wrong?
I'm honestly looking at this tiller:
What scares me is the reports (seem all the way back to 2005) of transmission problems. I will probably only use this tiller about 2 times a year. My plot is only 20 x 12.
With this size of my garden should i just get something like this:
Just seens like the sears is much more heavy duty and not a lot more money.
