Tine is important

First of all, tillers are mainly divided into three categories: field cultivators, front forks or middle forks and rear forks.

The field cultivator is light in weight, easy to operate, and suitable for light work. Anne Fisackerly, Marketing Director at Maxim Manufacturing, explained: “Usually the field cultivator has a two-stroke engine that is powerful enough to cultivate or cultivate elevated gardens or small flower beds.” “The field cultivator is not suitable for opening up new ground or large-scale gardening.”

Fork or mid-fork tillers are the most common in rental inventory. This type of tiller has tines at the front of the machine, a set of wheels and a tow bar at the rear of the operator position. "With the middle tooth tiller, the teeth are more directly under the engine," Mike Smollock and MacKissic pointed out. "This provides better balance and control, and also makes steering easier...The wheels on this tiller are only used to transport the tiller to work; once ready, it is important to turn the wheel upwards and Reduce the resistance to a comfortable height. This allows the operator to control the forward movement of the tiller by applying more or less downward pressure on the tow bar."

Rear fork cultivators are usually used for large-scale operations or to break hard ground that has never been worked before. It has a set of power wheels at the front and tines at the rear, so it is more stable and easier to operate because the wheels provide power to the tiller, rather than the tines pulling it forward.

There are different types of rear fork cultivators. They include belt drive, hydraulic and full gear drive. Each has its advantages. For example, the belt drive is easy to operate, the hydraulic tiller is flexible to use, and the all-gear drive machine is very durable. In addition, the tiller can provide standard rotation, where the wheels and tines rotate in the same direction, or they can rotate in opposite directions, with the wheels rotating in the opposite direction to the tines.

The reverse rotation is designed to provide maximum depth during the first pass, indicating that this is due to the uppercut movement of the tines. Disadvantageously, when making the second pass, wheel traction is an issue.

This is not a problem for standard rotating tines, which have the additional advantage of being able to chop up organic matter without the tines being wrapped in plant material.

The back teeth will not be dug as deep as the middle teeth, 7 to 8 inches compared to 10 to 12 inches, but it is sufficient for most applications.


Durability is another important consideration. It is recommended to look for an all-steel tiller, a commercial engine with an engine guard and a supporting frame.


The static pressure tiller is really bulky, so a trailer may be required for transportation. Although the hydrostatic machine does have a larger volume, it may be an advantage. The heavier the machine, the more work it has to do instead of the operator

Take care of your tillers


In general, some of the main service points to remember include:

Check the tiller for any loose bolts and screws after each lease.
Check the condition of the belt after each rental (if it is belt driven). Replace as needed. The belt tension can be changed by adjusting the idler cable chain on the hand clutch and moving the engine backward or forward.
Check the transmission fluid once a week by removing the check plug located directly above the gear shaft. If there is no fluid flowing out, add 00 Gear Lube to the filling plug located on the top of the gearbox until the fluid flows out of the non-return plug. After completion, make sure that both plugs are secure.
Repair the engine according to the engine user manual.
After each rental, please remove the dirt, roots, ropes and other foreign objects from the tines.
Safety first
Make sure that the customer knows how to stop and start the tiller.
All safety decals should be visible. Replace if necessary.
Instruct customers to perform the following actions:

Don't try to finish this job in one go; make a few passes.
Check the area for debris before starting farming.
If debris is entangled around the tines during operation, turn off the engine and check for obstacles in the tines.
Keep pets and children away from farming areas. Wear suitable shoes and safety glasses.
Nowadays, many tillers are equipped with an online operator system, which shuts down the machine when the operator releases the handle. This is a useful security feature, especially important for novice users.

Regardless of experience, all tenants should receive the direction of their rented tiller before leaving the rented yard.

In the actual use process, you may use more than just a cultivator, or you may also need to use a multifunctional brush cutter. If you are interested in it, you are welcome to come to Aote for a detailed consultation. We will give you the most detailed quotation.
