Q: My backyard is more like gravel than dirt, I call is shale, but I'm not sure if that is accurate. Just digging holes for plants and trenching I use a pick-ax to loosen the dirt first and then scoop it out with a shovel. Will this tiller work well in this situation?
by Mike from Georgia on September 21, 2013

A: Mike,

These tillers were designed for more of a compacted dirt application. You might find yourself with too much resistance with a heavily rocky soil bed. The DRT900E would offer some success, but I think you would be looking at premature wearing of the transmission and the belts. You would probably lose a shear bolt or two.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: What advantage is there to the dual rotation on the tines?
by Troy Johnston from Colorado on May 09, 2013

A: Troy-

Like the counter-rotating tiller, the dual-rotating machine has one extra feature: It can work in both forward and reverse tine motions. Considered a higher-end tiller, this heavy-duty machine choice gives you the most versatility. For example, you may be tilling some very softer ground using the forward motion but then move on to an area that is extremely compacted. You can automatically switch into reverse gear so that the tiller's tines cut deeply into the soil without much effort from you.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: How many horse power is this tiller?
by Jeff from Alabama on May 03, 2013

A: Jeff - There is no true conversion from HP to cc's. A 205cc engine is roughly equal to 6 or 6.5 hp.

I'm Old
I needed a tiller that would make my gardening a lot easier i have oxygen problems so I cannot pull corks multiple times. This tiller started on first pull and every time there after.

Has a electric start which I thought i would need to use but this tiller starts so easy i'm in dream land. Works great and is making my life much easier.

I Think I Am Done With Husqvarna
Leave it to Husqvarna to make things more difficult than they should be. Instructions have pictures to some other tiller and definitely not this one. Able to figure out where the front protection bar goes by looking online, and hope I have the handle bar on correctly...time will tell. Secondly, because they added the electric start they added a oil plug that has no dipstick on it....useless...think it has oil but who knows how much. Will have to order one before I can even use. Go with... more

I Am Impressed And I Am Not Easily Impressed
I have a big 90 x 50 garden. It had been 3 years since last tilled. This machine made the job easy. The wide tines pulverized the soil and sod. The rear rotating action kept the tiller in the ground rather than bouncing out and rushing forward as did my previous Troybuilt. To turn the whole garden took me almost exactly three hours and exactly one tank of gasoline. (I ran out transporting it back to the barn.)

The operation is quite simple: one lever chooses forward or reverse or... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Tines do not operate in transport gear
Cons: Had to run tap through handle nuts to clean out paint for bolts

Nice Tiller, Poor Instructions
It is a nice tiller.

Assembly instructions were lacking any details about the front bumper, which was not attached. Ended up having to take the front counter weights off to install the bumper.

And the engine manual says that there should be a dipstick for the oil level, but there isn't one. I put in exactly the amount of oil specified in the instructions, but that was too much. On first use had a lot of smoke from oil in the combustion chamber.

One thing I do miss from my old MTD is... more

Awesome Deal
First off I was amazed at how fast my Tiller arrived from Tillers Direct. The tiller itself is a workhorse as I used it to till new ground that has never been tilled before. I started a 25x50 foot plot and it took me about 2 hours to learn my tiller, all the ins and outs. I was using the fwd rotating function at first but then realized for new ground you want the reverse direction. It did its job.

Now a few things I discovered: Assembly was pretty easy. Even at full speed this tiller is... more

Disappointed
I live on the Texas Gulf Coast in heavy clay soil.This machine just wont handle it. It is advertised to handle it...but it does not. It takes a long time to achieve any depth and shears pins constantly. The pins are $9-10 bucks a piece. It starts good and runs good, but just isn't enough machine for this soil.

I'm sorry I bought it and wish I had paid the extra money for the Honda (which I know from rentals will do the job).

I have bought a generator, trash pump, tiller, and pole saw from... more

It's Heavy! The selector lever for putting it in gear is sloppy and takes some effort to get it where you want it. Compared to the quality, and usability of a Troy-Bilt, the Troy is a mile ahead of this machine. If I could return it I would. Know anyone in the market?
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use

Henry,
I'm sorry that you are not pleased with the performance of your machine. I would recommend going through the owners manual to make sure the unit is set-up correctly, all bolts are tightened and all settings have been adjusted. If you have any questions you can always give us a call and we will do what we can to help. You are correct that the tiller is somewhat heavy (200lbs), however it needs that weight to generate power to be able to work through your soil.

Unfortunately once a machine has been gassed, oiled and run, it can no longer be return shipped due to Federal regulations. If you truly are looking to get rid of your machine I would recommend selling it locally through Craigslist or something similar.

Thank you for your business and I hope you will give us a try in the future. Have a great day.

Have Not Used My New Husqvara Drt900e(17") 205 Cc Tiller Yet .
We still have some live plants in the garden producing tomatoes, beans, peas, peppers and okra, also the part that's out of production needs a good rain before tilling. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTREST!

Love It!
I LOVE the electric start - our garden is near an outlet, but I can actually restart with the pull thingy if I have to.
Also, compared to the Pony I've been using for the past ten years, this tiller is much easier to control.

The only bad things were that the control thing to make it go was mounted upside down on the handle - we were able to fix that easily - and the instructions didn't mention the guard that goes on the front so it took us a while to figure out what that was!
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Incomplete Instructions
