Tiller - 20" Rear Tine

Tiller - 20" Rear Tine

Tilling is the process of preparing soil for planting. Good and thorough tilling is very important for good lawn growth, or in fact growth of anything you plant. The soil quality is also a big factor, so often your tilling will also involve adding topsoil, compost, or fertilizer. 

The main thing with tilling is to get to the right depth and to crush the dirt up as evenly as possible. This is harder with clayish soils, and easier with sand or loamy ones, but regardless do the best you can to get the soil reasonably well pulverized. If it seems to need more tilling, you can go back over it a second or third time. When you’re done the earth should be relatively free of chunks. After this you’re ready to mix in your planting soil (top soil), compost, or fertilizer and plant your grass seed or garden plants.
Tillers will make the job significantly quicker and easier. The way they work is by spinning blades that churn up the ground when they make contact with it. You can set the rough depth these blades dig down to beforehand. The machine self propels as it digs rather than rolling on wheels, so it’s a bit more of a bumpy ride than a lawn mower.
Rear tine tillers have powered wheels with the engine mass forward and the tine assembly aft of the powered axle. This means that the machine does nearly all the work and the operator only has to keep a light hand on the machine to guide it. Rear tine tillers work better than other tine locations on "new ground" and hard surfaces.



The Operator's/Safety Manual for this machine will be provided to the customer during the rental period. The operator of the machine should read and understand the Operator's/Safety Manual before using the machine.
