When Breaking hard new ground your supposed to run the tines in reverse while you run the tiller forward. Does the blades and tines run just backwards and/or forwards or is there a setting to run half the tines one way and the rest the opposite simultaniously?
Tim Tuttle 
from Tennessee 
May 11, 2015
Answer
Tim,

Using counter (reverse) rotating tines is the most aggressive approach and is best when breaking new ground. This tiller is "Dual Rotating". At anyone time the tines are all rotating in the same direction either all forward or all counter (reverse). Dual rotating allows you to select either forward or counter rotating tine directions.

Can you get this tiller with an electric start?
B Rutherford 
from Louisiana

Answer
The Cub Cadet RT65 tiller is not available with an electric start if you want the Honda engine. The RT65 only comes with an electric start with the Cub Cadet 208cc engine: RT65E

Hi - I'm building a fence around my garden and am interested in the width of the Cub Cadet RT65 and Husqvarna DRT900/DRT900H so I know how wide I need to make the gate. Don't want to build a fence and find I can't get the tiller into the garden!
Roger 
from Colorado

Answer
Roger,

We are looking at a max width of about 23" when the RT65 is fully assembled, and the DRT900/900H are the same size with a max width of about 20.5".

If you have any further questions, always feel free to contact me directly at 800-710-7499 Ext. 133.

I'm always happy to help!

Hello, Are there other attachments that can be used with this tiller? Perhaps a hiller/furrower? Thank you!
Katie

Answer
Katie - sorry, but Cub Cadet no longer offers a hiller/furrower for their rear tine tillers. They did, but they dropped it from their offering a year or two ago.
