Backyard vegetable gardeners best tiller

For rare thinking individuals like you and me, growing fresh vegetables in our backyard garden is a darn good idea. However, that is not to say, we are willing to work our fool tails off unnecessarily just so we can enjoy the great taste and health benefits from eating fresh fruits, herbs and veggies from our garden.

Which is to say, I think you will agree, we need to find out which garden tools we should buy, rent, hire, or borrow that make tilling, cultivating, and weeding the garden take as little time and effort as is possible. As you continue reading this article, backyard vegetable gardeners simply, want to know which garden tiller is easy to use I think you will begin to see, a rear tine tiller is easy to use.

Why garden!

Let us be honest with ourselves for a moment, if it were not for superior taste and improved quality homegrown vegetables such as vine-ripened tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, zucchini and cucumbers picked at the peak of freshness reward us, we would not even give planting a garden a second thought.

The truth of the matter, we know and believe in our heart, homegrown vegetables ripening on the vine in our backyard garden, not only taste better, they provide our family with better quality food and nutrition. Especially when compared to the vegetables found in the local supermarket produce counter that came from only God knows where, when they were harvested, and what chemicals were use to grow them.

Selecting the best garden tiller

What makes a rear tine tiller easy to use?

● The new heavy-duty rear tine tillers designed for today’s backyard gardeners, are equipped with easy starting, powerful, fuel-efficient OHV 4-cycle engines. These backyard workhorses are complete with clearly laid out and easy to use controls for not only the tiller box, and transmission speed and direction. Also the 4-cycle OHV engine that include;

◦ run and off switch,

◦ throttle speed,

◦ engine choke for cold starting conditions,

◦ easy to use and locate dipstick for checking the engine oil level,

◦ easy to service OHV engine air cleaner assembly that is important to the engine operating at its peak efficiency.

Rear time tiller features that deliver

● forward and reverse multi speed transmissions make it easy to slow down when tilling heavy clay soils, or increasing travel speed when the need arises. Such is the case when moving the rear tine tiller from the garden shed to the garden and back again.

● rear safety shield and tiller box covers the rotating tines, protecting vegetable plants, tomato cages, cucumber trellises and let us not forget our feet. from the powerful tillers tines that rotate at high speed. All the while, keeping the soil, compost, or our other many soil amendments, contained with in the tiller box where it is perfectly tilled and mixed.

Benefits of tiller adjustments

● easily adjusted depth gauge / drag bar helps to keep the tiller tines from digging to aggressively in compacted heavy clay soils. Tilling one to two inches deep in hard soils per pass, makes the job of tilling the garden spot a hole lot more fun, and not so much as a fight, like when we are trying to tame, or should I say, hold back, a run-a-way troy Bilt horse tiller pulling us across the garden.

● large rubber pneumatic tires make moving rear tine tillers around the garden and tilling in rough plant beds where we pulled out all the tomato, sunflower, and other garden materials, we compost much easier.

Importance of tiller control

● the large, easily adjusted, up and down, and on the high and models, the side-to-side adjustment on the handles with handy controls intuitively located. Provide the advantage that makes controlling the heavy-duty rear tine tillers extremely easy to handle, when tilling and mixing Pete moss, manure, organic compost and fertilizers into our vegetable garden soil, makes creating the perfect planting beds not only, unbelievably easy, but a lot of fun and rewarding as well.

● High-end full featured rear tine tillers are not limited to tilling and cultivating our vegetable gardens. High-end tillers like the Troy Bilt Big Red and the larger BCS tiller/tractor offer the option of using a multitude of different useful attachments. These tiller attachments turn the ordinary rear tine garden tiller, into a complete set of lawn and garden maintenance tools, from tilling, cultivating, mowing, removing snow and a whole host of other jobs around the lawn and garden, summer, spring, winter and fall.
