Whether you need to break up a lawn or prepare a garden patch for sowing, Husqvarna has a tiller for every job. Its range comprises two different models – rear-tine and front-tine. The rear-tine models are designed for use on densely packed earth and lawns.
The front-tine tillers are suitable for smaller landscaping work, such as preparing flowerbeds and garden patches.
Easy starting and handling
Thanks to the easy-start and powerful overhead-valve engine, the Husqvarna range of tillers delivers precision and more. Moreover, they are simple to handle, manoeuvre, transport and store. The comfortable handle system and well-grouped controls also make work easy, even in the toughest soil. The large driving wheels also provide good traction on all surfaces.
Easy to manoeuvre in any weather
Husqvarna’s tillers are also designed with safety, comfortably and stability in mind. The counterweight increases weight on the wheels improving the balance. Thanks to the tine shield, debris spray from the rotating tines the debris gets diverted away from the user.
Components for tough treatment
All Husqvarna Tillers are designed to take tough treatment. Engines and transmissions are built for intense operation over many years.
What to think about when buying a tiller
Tillers are great for breaking up a lawn or prepare a garden patch for sowing. What follows are some of the considerations that might help anyone looking to buy a new tiller:
Will you be doing heavier work? Get a rear-tine!
For large and open areas a rear-tine counter-rotating tiller and generous working width is the most suitable.
The rear-tine tillers are designed for use on densely packed earth and lawns. With powered wheels and counter-rotating tines these machines break up soil very effectively.
Doing some minor gardening? Get a front-tine!
The front-tine tillers are suitable for smaller landscaping work, such as preparing flowerbeds and garden patches. These tillers are driven by the tines and are available with working widths from 24 cm to 85 cm. The smaller models are perfect for tighter garden spaces and can also be fitted with accessories for various garden tasks.
General advice when buying a tiller
For versatile garden tasks you might consider buying a front-tine tiller with accessories for moss raking, edging, scarifying and ploughing. If you have many small patches and flower beds in your garden you should make sure that the tiller you choose has carrying handles or transport wheels. For optimum manoeuvrability and control our tillers have a reverse gear.
