PRODUCT FOCUS

Tillers

Tillers are definitely worth their weight, as they are ideal tools for initial ground breaking of soil for flowerbeds and more. Whether hand-held or pulled/pushed by a tractor, this equipment helps provide a loose soil that drains well and breaks up materials, allowing for better root growth in even the most uninhabitable soil.

The six-tine tiller features 13-inch-wide self-sharpening tines and a Honda GX-25 engine. Safety features include a removable blade cover with side skirts and an interlock trigger.
