Lawn tillers are becoming the need of the day. Whether you have a small garden or a big one, you would definitely need a tiller if you plan to plant anything on it. If you have a one-off project, you could always rent one, but if you are one with a green thumb and are looking to spend some time gardening, you should definitely look at a tiller. There are several tillers in the market, and the Husqvarna CRT900 14 CRT Tiller is one of them. Husqvarna is well known in the lawn market, and here is a complete review of the CRT900.
The CRT900 has a powerful 205cc Briggs & Stratton, powered by Honda, and this is by far the unique selling point of this tiller. With this amount of power available, cutting through the roots, weeds and other unwanted parts in the soil to toil becomes a literal walk in the park. With the strong engine, you do not feel the stress of tilling, and your back, hands and legs will thank you for buying this high powered tilling machine. It does not come with the oil needed, so you would need to make arrangements for it. The unique Y shaped handle provides extra comfort when it comes to tilling, and people will have better rested fingers, forearms and elbows at the end of their tilling day, as compared to the other tillers that are available in the market in the price range.
The assembly is easy, and with the step-by-step directions given, it should not bother the typical lawn carer. It is lighter than the other tillers available in the price range, which makes it simpler to manoeuver around, and people of all ages and heights should not have any problems moving and operating the tiller. This tiller is a rear tine tiller, and has dual rotating tines, which allows for specific farming concepts like top soil loading. It is perfect for tilling even hard surfaces, but you will need to run it over a couple of times.
The shape of the tines makes them quite proficient when it comes to tilling very hard areas too, and makes short work of several of the hard soil areas. The compact design makes it easier for one to move this tiller through the garden and lawn. The construction is strong and dependant and it will take quite a few knocks through its lifetime. This tiller benefits from the reduced noise technology, so you do not have to worry too much about your tilling disturbing the neighbours, and you can choose any time you want to till the land. It also has low vibration, which basically enhances the tilling experience for a person. While it is very good for soil, the tiller will stop automatically if it comes across big rocks and stones, which is actually an advantage, because rocks and stones will make the blades misshapen, and you might end up paying a pretty penny to replace the blades in such a situation.
What we liked
- Forward-rotating and counter-rotating cultivators.
- Smooth working in muddy and loose soil due to agricultural tires having heavy threads.
- Sealed transmission of the tiller which ensures longer lasting life of the mower.
What we disliked
- Transportation is slightly a hectic job.
