    Default What a tiller

    The 48" First Choice Tiller is fantastic! I just tilled my garden its still to wet to plant, but im hoping it dries up some after tilling it. After it drys a bit ill till it one more time to fix my ruts where i got stuck a couple times. She is a ripper thats for sure. Any one else got this tiller? If so has it held up good over time? Thanks,
    Larry

    I have a 4ft yanmar tiller and I love to use it. I can almost bury it in my garden if I am not careful.
    After a couple of passes the ground is so fine you sink in when you walk across it. I have a couple of neighbors with gardens so I get to use it a few times a year.

    A tiller Also works good to turn over large compost piles. Between my FEL and tiller I can turn over a compost pile pretty quick.

    I have the 57" version and it is fantastic. H-e-a-v-y D-u-t-y. I've used it once, but neighbors have seen the results. I expect I'll get to use it several times again this Spring. Like Gary's Yanmar, the FC makes very fine, aerated, soft dirt. Congratulations on your purchase!

    In the winter, I use a butterfly plow to rip my garden area deep....then let it sit until early spring, where I hit it with the cultivator and then the disk harrow. If you go over it enough with the disk harrow, it will be pretty fine........then I just lay out my rows with my walk-behind tiller to achieve the fine-soil effect......

    Using this method, I haven't been able to justify a PTO tiller for my tractor....though i'm dying to own one <smile>. Could have used it when I was putting in my new yard a couple years ago......
