- Very Sturdy Machine Review by Leon Cook
Value Quality Price
The tiller is well built. The steel frame is very solid and the gear drive is rugged. The paint job shows some overspray on the label, which is a very minor issue. A couple 3/16" bolts were missing from the plastic shield on the front of the tiller. This was easy to remedy but should have been installed during final assembly.
The tiller has done a very good job in a wide range of conditions. It can take more power than my 40 hp tractor can supply in difficult tilling. In sticky clay, the teeth can become tightly clogged with dirt so avoid operation in sticky ground.
The manual could have provided a few more instructions. My son who is a mechanical engineer showed me how the support leg was to operate. I have been experimenting with different operating settings.
I am very pleased with this machine and look forward to using it for years to come. My 5 acre garden has never been this well cared for!
