Where Is It?
Sitting in a Trucking Company yard -----

It's been at their yard since Friday, so we missed the only day they come up our way ---

We are promised this Thursday for a PM delivery.

You need to use a better way to ship, like with another trucking Company ----

With all the good weather we are having I should have had the ground worked up several weeks ago ---

This tiller is slow and I had to push it to help it along.. It would spin rather then pull the tiller along.. It tilled fine but left a very rough finish.. It has a wide plastic wheel on each side under the shield and these left ruts in the tilled soil..

I needed to rake out the garden before planting.. I took the tiller back to the store for a refund.. The tiller was ordered online, in Feb, however the store took it back in June.. That says something for customer service..

Poor Design
The other reviews are correct about the slow speed. It is stable, but crawls along. The problem I encountered was one of poor design in the transmission. If you till in roots, tall grass, or weeds, the vegetation wraps around the tine drive shafts tightly.

This cuts the shaft seals at the transmission housing, causing oil leaks. I put my unit in the shop three times for this issue. The cub cadet people were unwilling to help. I finally gave up and bought a traditional horizontal shaft... more
Cons: Difficult To Use, Durability

Not For Everybody - "the Snail"
First, I have talked to the seller who said his Cub Cadet rep was willing to swap my new VT-100 out for a new 2014 R65 H. Obviously I didn't like the VT-100, but there are also some good things about it. It can be a very good tiller for some people, but I suspect not for many.

- It is very stable. It doesn't jump all over the place like the typical horizontal tine tiller. Some of that stability I'm sure is related to how slow it moves.
- Related to the stability and slowness - it's... more
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Very Slow, Underpowered For Full Depth Rating

We appreciate the review and are sorry about your experience you had with this tiller. With this being a new design, we do believe this would be something Cub Cadet would appreciate getting feedback on as well. You were extremely detailed in your review this should allow Cub Cadet to assess some possible problems with this machine. Cub Cadet can be reached at 1-877-282-8684 if you would like to follow up and give them a call as well.

The picture is appreciated, but has been removed due to being out of focus, it is difficult to see the shims you had placed in the unit. If you would like to resend us the picture in better focus, we would be happy to add this to the review.

Stay Away
My husband purchased this tiller and discovered that it was too slow, which hurts his back because he has back problems. When I called and spoke with customer service requesting a return or an exchange I was informed that if it had been used, with gas and oil in it they could not exchange or return it. Well, how are you suppose to know how it runs and works for you if you don't use it. Don't think we will be ordering from this company again. Don't you trade in a car that has been used with oil... more

Unfortunately we're not allowed to take returns in the mail once they've been gassed. It's federal law that regulates this for safety reasons. Since you don't mail a car to the dealership, this law would not apply.

We're sorry you feel mistreated. It was never our intention to make you feel that way. Our products all have specs listed, including weight and horsepower/cc. Our return policy also states that we cannot take returns on products that have been gassed.

If it's not running properly, we suggest you contact the manufacturer to determine if it can be repaired or replaced under warranty. Any further questions, please feel free to contact us back.

Slove Hard Turn
Based on what customer refers most problem of new vertical tine, the tuning. I believe it is a easy solution by braking wheel drive shaft to 2 pieces and have clutch at each side more like mini transporter transmission. To make a wheel differential. make turn to disengage one side of wheel .
