Rear Tine Tillers Provide Consistent Depth and Control

Anyone who has ever tried to till a large patch of ground by hand knows how difficult the task can be. In fact, it is so exhausting that it can cause a would-be gardener to give up in discouragement before the first seed is ever planted. Working clay soil or soil that's full of stones can be just as frustrating, even in a small garden. Thankfully, there are machines that can help with these tasks. Rear-tine tillers can maintain a garden patch as large as 7,500 feet, and they have enough power to rip through even rock-hard ground. Because they have wheels in the front, they move forward at a steady speed and till at an even depth. These tillers work more quickly than front-tine tillers and are quite a bit more controllable.

Rear-tine tillers are generally categorized by the way that the tines rotate. Counter-rotating rear-tine tillers have tines that rotate in the opposite direction of the wheels. They have the most digging power and can till to depths of up to eight inches, making them ideal for virgin ground and tough soil conditions. Quick tilling is another advantage of these machines, but they do not always till at a consistent depth. Forward-rotating rear-tine tillers, on the other hand, till at a steady depth of about two inches. With tines that rotate in the same direction as the wheels, they are perfect for producing fine, well-aerated soil in preparation for planting. These tillers do not work as well on clay soil as counter-rotating tillers, however.

For the advantages of both a forward-rotating and a counter-rotating tiller, Sears offers the renowned Craftsman dual-rotating models. The tines on these tillers can be set to rotate in either a forward or a backward direction, so they can be used for breaking new ground as well as for cultivating. Adjustable depth settings mean that these pieces of equipment are customizable for a wide variety of purposes, and a wide tilling path makes them ideal for people who want to make quick work of large plots of ground. On some models, there is also an electric start for superior ease-of-use.

In addition to tilling and cultivating soil, a rear-tine tiller has many other uses. For example, this machine can rip out weeds and bury them deep underground or remove large swaths of turf. In fact, with the help of a furrower attachment, it can even be used for seeding. The furrower attaches to the depth stake on the tiller and can be adjusted to various depths, making it perfect for creating uniform rows in a matter of minutes.
