Tilling has evolved far beyond the use of shovels, hoes and horse-drawn plows.

You can get powerful tillers in numerous shapes and sizes, including front or rear tines that rotate forward, backward, or both!

But now, Cub Cadet has stepped outside the norm to create an innovative new style of rear tine tiller.



Instead of forward and reverse, Cub Cadet split the tine shaft in half and turned it upright, creating a vertical tine tiller.

Like a kitchen mixer, these new vertical tines spin in opposite directions and overlap to actually churn the soil.

This change in direction means the tines are cutting through the soil rather than hammering down on it, reducing vibration and improving efficiency.

One Pass Conquers All

This simultaneous breaking and mixing means half the time, half the gas, and half the wear & tear on your tiller.

Smooth Operation
The spinning action of the vertical tines allows for smoother operation, because there's less impact with the soil as it utilizes more of a stirring motion that cuts into the soil from from the side. smooth tillerTraditional garden tillers cut in at a downward motion, which packs some of the deeper soil down.

This new design helps eliminate bucking and minimize vibration.

This smooth tilling enables you to take advantage of easy one-hand operation from either the right or left side of the tiller, so you don't have to walk over your freshly churned soil.

Easy to Roll Away

This vertical tine model has a neutral position so you can easily roll your tiller away without the need to unlock any pins.


Reverse Mode
