Your experience would be the opposite of mine. I've had a couple of front tine tillers and would hate to have to go back to one.


Ditto - those front tine tillers will give you a real workout compared to a quality rear tine. These days I use a 6' tiller behind my tractor for my garden and food plots, so my only workout is hooking it up to my tractor!

I would get an older model heavy duty rear tine. One with a sturdy frame and stout gear box with two fwd gears and reverse gear. Also 7-10 hp. Easily replaceable belts from motor to gearbox the rest shaft driven.
Dealers(repair shops) will fix this kind up and put then on the lot for sell. It is possible to get a real machine for a fraction of its worth to a person.
I have had several kinds but now have an old 1984 model airens that will be good for many years to come.

I got a Craftsman front tine. It serves it's purpose but I'm always looking for a deal on a rear tine.

If you are using raised beds or a garden with something around it, you do not want a rear tine. I thought the same thing till I rented one and realize with the railroad ties around my old garden, I could not till real close with the rear tine tiller.

Use a tiller in raised beds?
I have a large garden where I use the tiller. I also have a few 3'x12' raised beds which I've never even considered using the tiller in.
