From The Manufacturer
Agri-fab (36") Multi-fit Tow-behind Tiller
This very versatile tiller is one of only a few on the market. What makes this tiller so unique is that it can be used behind any size lawn and garden tractor or ATV. The forward rotating tines do not put stress or wear and tear on the transmission allowing it to be pulled behind versus a PTO driven tiller. The 11 inch tines can be adjusted to depths of 5.5 inches deep. When tilling soil that has not been broken Agri-Fab recommends taking 1 or 2 inches at a time for best results.

Quicker Than A Shovel!
Hey! I scoped this machinery out last fall on line, saved up over the winter and had it delivered this spring (not quite to my house because I live remotely and it was a third party livery). Clear manual and once gassed up and with oil in the crankcase the engine turned over on second pull. Warmed it up as instructed then tilled 100 meters and she quit!

Could not re-start. Had to be electrical. Brought it into local shop (Agri-Fab warranty folks were very efficient) and they deduced safety... more

Agri-fab Tiller
I have had my tiller for several weeks and have held off sending a review so as to not let my first impressions color my opinion. As advertised it "stirs" just fine (At least at 2". See below ) but as for breaking up new ground it's like saying you can race your minivan. Sure you can, but you will not be happy with the results. Do NOT buy this tiller to breakup a new garden or seed bed of any size, unless you have a huge amount of patience or are tilling beach sand. It is... more

Agri-fab Follow Up
This is a follow up to my review of June 18th. This afternoon at about hour 12, the engine stalled. (Again) After two pulls on the starter rope it stopped solid. The crankshaft will rotate only about a quarter turn in either direction. I have just e-mailed Agri-Fab about the problem. I'll let you know if I get satisfaction or something else.
Cons: Unreliable

Hello.

The tiller did it's job, but had quite a lot of bounce due to dry ground. I did not know when I ordered it that a helpful accessory would have been weights so I didn't order them. I probably will order some for future.

A tine snapped off at the weld after a couple of hours. This diminished the effectiveness somewhat, but I was able to finish the job, which was to prepare four 100' long beds for blue berry plants. I called Agri Fab and they sent me a replacement at no charge. ... more

Tiller Works Great.
I can't believe how big of rocks the tiller will flip out of the ground. The tiller works in any kind of soil. Very good product and easy to use. The only complaint I have is that the lift handle could be longer. It is a long reach to pull back to raise the tiller, other than that the tiller is a very good quality product.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations

My Agri-fab Pull Behind Tiller
I was finally able to use my new Agri-Fab tiller today. It attached to my riding mower easily. I only needed to put oil and gas in it and attach a few parts and if fired right up. I was a little unsure if my riding mower would be OK with the stresses put on it from the tiller trying to break into the ground, but it worked like a champ. I followed the directions and started the depth setting at 1 inch and increased the depth by 1 inch at a time until I got down to the 4 inches that I had... more

Review
Well, when I got your tiller, I could not use it to break up the sod where I wanted my garden, even when that area had been plowed a year ago. As an Engineer, I assessed the problem, and came up with a safe solution. I made an adapter that allowed me to use the tiller to break up the sod. As I previously mentioned, I would be happy to sell you the design for a small fee, or royalty.

Also, since there is no oil dip stick in order to check the oil level, it is hard to determine if the right... more

One Problem After The Other
I realize now I was a bit hasty when I decided to purchase an AGRI-FAB TOW BEHIND TILLER.
I bought the tiller Thursday afternoon and got two hours of tilling in Friday morning before it broke down. It took two hours Saturday morning to remove and straighten the rod that raises and lowers the wheels after it got bent and beat up by the tiller teeth. Half an hour in the field and it broke down again due to the same problem. I have now spent as much time repairing the tiller as I've spent... more

The Mankiller Runs Again
There should be a gorilla included in the price. You need one to raise the unit at the end of the garden. The lift handle should be at least two feet longer, to give an advantage for lifting the unit. It is impossible for an 83 year old man to raise the unit from the tractor seat. It is necessary to get off of the tractor and use both hands to raise the unit.
Pros: High Quality
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Bad Instructions

I am 70 years old and have copd, bad knees and back problems, so it would be impossible to use a walk behind tiller. My wife enjoys her garden each year but had given up having one this year. I was able to till her garden space plus even more area. We both thank you for our tow behind tiller

Follow-up Review From David
I just wanted to let you know how this tiller has performed. I have a garden that I regularly till up each year, and this unit has never skipped a beat. Employ it within its capabilities. You can't go ripping through untilled ground without bogging down. That being said, it steadily goes through worked ground at slow speed. The results are very nicely, plant ready soil. This is excellent for tilling in your compost, manure, and fertilizers/lime. Not a single thing has broken or bent;... more

This has been a good solid machine I have put about 100 hrs on it and had a very positive experience. This machine starts every time and has withstood some abuse including very rocky soil.

It's The Best For The Money
It's a good product. It is a little hard to raise in soft soil. I think it could use an apron behind the tines to recirculate the tilled earth. (it throws the dirt behind) It's better then the last pull behind I've owned. The depth setting instructions are a little vague.
Pros: Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Difficult To Use, Bad Instructions

Needed Some Alterations
I have the large 26HP garden tractor so it is no problem to pull however hooking and un-hooking the tiller was a different story. It isn't counter balanced therefore it is front heavy. I had to weld a boat trailer wheel/jack on the front in order to attach the tiller and move it for storage when I detached the tiller. Other than that the tiller works just fine. However I'm working in a large garden which has good loose soil that has been worked prior to my trying this tiller. I really think it... more

Good Grief
This tiller came to my house with no fluids. I expect that, but the sealed trasmission case had no transmission oil in it....Really, come on guys. Then hitch would not secure properly and is too short for my quad. The tiller keeps bucking against the crank case of my quad and has torn it apart as well as the rear brake light on my quad. After all of this the pin came out of the connecting rod underneath the tiller and the tiller dropped while I was pulling it to my garage and bent it. Now it... more

My new tiller performs far beyond my expectations. It turns over new ground with exceptional power, even churning up rocks 8-10 inches in diameter. I am very pleased. The only issue I had was with the shipping. Apparently the delivery truck could not travel on the country road on which I live. I had to meet him and transfer the tiller to my pickup truck.

Easy to assemble
Easy to setup and use. Added oil and gas and it started on the first pull. Good power from the Briggs and Stratton motor.
Seems to be well built..time will tell
Tilled two plots 30x60 in no time.
Very good seed bed preparation

I expect many years of service from this tiller

Thanks Tillers Direct and Agri Fab

Good Product
This product worked great. Tilled 4,000 sq ft quickly. I had it attached to an atv. The trick is going at just the right speed. Also, multiple passes are required just so you don't bog it down by chewing through too thick of soil. Worth the money.

1997 And Still Going Strong
I bought mine used when it was mfg. by Haban of Racine Wi. Please don't change the design, it does a great job. I've had to replace tines, and the engine finally died, but Briggs still makes one that fits perfectly with no modification needed.

Pulled mine with JD 112 from the 70's. I think the previous owner modified the hitch, so looking at replacing it. This little machine has tilled up the ground for new lawns, gardens, made rows in over-grown raspberry patches, and made new flower beds... more

Good Uint, Needs Something
I have a very large area to get ready for the year's gardening needs. This has done a good job, 1 pass at a time until depth is reached. I would like to see the weights shipped withe the unit as standard as they are somewhat hard to find. This would eliminate the side to side wobble it gets in a harder soil. Second issue i have is i ordered lift gate service for and extra 50 bucks.

But ABF moves unit to Panama transfer because ABF doesn't service my area. So I had to climb in the back of... more

Texas Tiller
I live in the Blackland Prarie of East Texas and the soil is either soggy clay or when it drys, bricks. I used the tiller to rip into an existing Bermuda Grass lawn to use for garden space. I'd never used this type of tiller or tilled this type of soil, the soil is quite a challenge, but the machine dug right into it. Bogged down once, when I tried to till too deeply in the wet clay but otherwise is doing a pretty decent job of pounding it into useable garden soil. I've had to retill... more

Nice Piece Of Equipment
Works great. Easy to follow directions. Had it going within an hour of delivery. Only down part about it is the bracket it comes with takes a beating as the tiller is operating and will need to be replaced in the future. The spring in the tongue really takes most of the shock out the rest gets absorbed be the bracket so you don't feel hardly anything (using an atv). I broke tine (operator error) but it was easy to repair.
