4.0 out of 5 stars Good Tiller but has limited abilities, July 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Troy-Bilt Bronco 208cc 4-Cycle Gas Powered Rear Bolo Tine Tiller (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Lawn & Patio)
This is a great tiller for my use which is tilling between garden rows and around trees to eliminate weeds. I have tilled quite a bit of ground getting ready for tree planting.

The 1st thing I noticed is that you can't till at full depth on the first pass with this tiller. The tires don't have enough grip. 2-3" is tops. On the second pass you can get down to full depth. The engine has plenty of power and will work as well at idle speed as full speed - just a little slower. The tilling speed could be faster and combined with the 14" width, tilling a 20x20' piece of ground takes about 15 min.

It seems to be well built and I expect it to last for many years. One thing that could be stronger is the handle. It is very easy to manouver for a tiller, but the handle tends to flex when turning and has even bent a little in one direction or the other.

If you have a big garden and need to do a lot of tilling, I would recommend getting a bigger tiller with larger tines. I think Yard Machines makes one for about the same price that is bigger.

If you have a small garden or just need to till between rows, this is perfect and the engine, tines and transmission look like they will last quite a while.
