The tiller comes handy if you want to level the ground in area of ur yard. Just till it up and take a dozer blade if you have one and scrap it off.

One of the added benefits of the WH tiller is rather than fight a walk behind tiller,you can enjoy a cold beverage and get more done.

The Wheel Horse tiller  takes a while to install -no denying.  That's why some own a "dedicated"   tractor for the tiller  attachment!  

 

Once installed it does the job just like you showed on your lawn Tonyp!

I agree with Lane.The tiller is a bear to put on and take off.I have one horse just for that duty.Makes getting more horses almost a necessity.Who knows maybe a garden is in your future after all.Luck,JAinVA

I had a dedicated Wheel Horse tractor for tilling, that is until my friend Bruce borrowed my tiller......... He says I can borrow it back anytime I need it :laughing-rolling:

I'm glad he didn't want to borrow the tractor too !

Uhmmm...Well, ok,  I do have 3 Wheel Horse Tractors and only 1 Tiller., but the Tractor with the  Cup Holder has a mower deck on it ? Now what do I do ? It's all so very confusing :(

For the hard Missouri clay (with rocks), I use a Brinly 10 inch single moldboard plow and a Brinly disc to work the ground.  I do need to get a cultivator soon, though.  A tiller would work okay, but not for virgin ground here in my part of Missouri.

It's funny how different people have different experiences...

 

i always thought the tillers were pretty easy to mount and dismount.  But I also think they don't work as well as a dedicated walk-behind rear tine. 

 

I've never had loose enough soil for them to do much more than bounce...even with brand new tines.  

 

i always thought if someone who was enterprising and creative would reverse the tines and make the tiller spin the other direction that we'd really have something.  

 

Gauntlet thrown.

Steve,

As to the performance of a tiller, it depends on the soil.  Our Missouri ground, unless it's in the Missouri River bottoms and a few other places, is too hard and rocky for a tiller, unless it's been broken up already.  Especially in my area, which is called the Lead Belt area, and for good reason.  We have a county aptly named Iron County, and towns named Ironton, Irondale, Leadwood, Leadington, etc.  Get the drift?

Hey TonyP, how are you with regards to Hurricane Matthew?

 I am in Charlotte NC, rain fairly heavy at times on and off, but no big deal. We are good, thanks for asking !

Here in Chapel Hill it has rained all day with off and on wind. Tony you should have less chance for damages than here where I live and further East
