Good buy
I live in North Carolina where the soil is somewhat sandy and this tiller does a really good job. Overall I'm pretty pleased with this machine. The engine has plenty of power, depending on how deep you're digging, you can get a good hour and half on a tank of fuel. The tiller breaks the soil up just fine. There are a couple things I don't really care for however they're not anything major. One of the things I don't like is how the drag bar and wheels dig trenches behind the tiller. I was able to reduce these trenches by repositioning the drag bar to fit behind the axle. Not only did this eliminate the deep trench but it also reduced the drag on the tiller which reduced the strain on the engine. The wheels don't dig as deep as they did before. The adjustment on the lifting bar has to be chaged but thats nothing, a 3/4 inch wrench is all you'll need. I wish the wheels were wider, I'll probably replace those before to long. An electronic lift would be a nice touch, it takes a bit of muscle to raise and lower the tiller with the lifting bar. I'll be experimenting with a 3 point hitch setup before too long, if it works then the issue of the trenches will be resolved alltogether. The issue I've just spoken of is really a cosmetic thing, it has no real impact on the performance of the tiller. I truelly believe this is money well spent. If you take your time and don't try to get to the max depth on one pass this tiller should last a long time.

Piece of junk.
This tiller is a piece of junk. It breaks down all the time and it takes Sears 3-4 weeks to repair. I've had the Sears repairman out three times already this year to fix it. Today the tiller tongue weld broke. I know somebody else who has this tiller and the same thing happened to his. If you are looking for a pull behind garden tiller I would keep looking and avoid this lemon, however if you must have this one, be sure to get the maintenance agreement. You'll need it.

Excellent

This tiller is excellent. Will till @ whatever depth you set. The reviews about bouncing could probably be resolved by placing the tines on the right side. When my tiller was delivered they were backward. The cutting side has to engage the soil first. They are marked LH and RH. It was probably assembled in a hurry. After this minor correction everything was fine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Garden Tiller

I've had this tiller for 2 years now. We have a very large garden with a clay and rocky base. I swear those rocks propagate yearly! Anyway, I have not had any problems with this tiller. I like it much better than the bigger 3PT one I had on my old Kubota. It actually broke the soil up and brought up the rocks much better. And of course it's easier to manage than the PTO model because of it's size. I plow at least 3 times in the spring before I plant and again in the fall after the garden is done. It is well taken care of, kept clean and all parts are checked often for any problems. I feel items are as good as they are taken care of. I've had service techs out for other things and they have always been professional and courteous.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman Universal Tiller

I have two gardens. One I have been tilling for years and a new one. I have had nothing but probelms with this tiller since I purchased it. I have a Sears garden tractor 18hp that I am pulling it with. In two years I have broke; tines, shaft and the entire casing that houses the chain that turns the shaft/times. It is two years old and I can't fix it anymore - the motor has maybe 10 hours on it and all this has happened. Stay away from this and get a real plow and disc.

Craftsman Universal Rear Tiller: So far, so good.

I purchased the tillar last week to do some major yard renovation and to use for future work. It was expensive, but if I use it more than 10 times it should pay for itself as I got it on sale. 9 more times to go.

I tilled about 9000sq ft, some of it going up a 30-35 incline. It handled the work like a champ. I live in NH there are rocks that caused the machine to buck a little. But it always pulled through. With a 3' swatch, it made short work of the 9k sqft.

The engine is a briggs and straton and ran very well. It only bogged down a few times in dense soils that had deep growth in it. If you listen to the engine it should perform for you. My one complaint was there is no dip stick for the oil. The fills are found at the lower base of the engine block where it connects to the tillar. You are suppose to look into the fill and eyeball the oils line. I didn't like this. They have a spot to install a dip stick but it didn't come with one. Why not? Maybe over time I'll get use to this.

I plan on tilling about 2 arces worth of land with this machine. So I think I'll really find out it's strengths and weaknesses in the coming years. Maybe I'll do a repost when I get more than 4 hours of work on the machine. But for now...I can't complain. It does a nice job and I think most people would be very satisfied with the work when complete. The size and ease of use are a big bonus. Being able to pull it and not have to kill your body is an extra bonus.

I'm giving this 5 stars because compared to other tillars I used on other jobs this was a breeze. Take your time, let the machine do the work and I expect this machine to do it's job with ease.

I own the Craftsman GT6000 Garden tractor and was pulling the tillar with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Requires larger wheels to work correctly, but, Tills Well

We bought this Tiller to pull behind our Craftsman riding lawn mower tractor. Right away we noticed there is no position that the drag stake could be set at to keep it from sitting too low down into the dirt. In the highest setting, it actually drags lower than the cultivating tines creating a huge drag on the mower and a lot of lurching. The drag stake also plows a big groove down the center of the path. After some research, we found that the Tiller is made by the company called Agri-Fab and Sears buys them and slaps the Craftsman name on. Agri-Fab shows the Tiller with 15 inch wheels in their ad. Due to some design changes, or, more likely cost reductions, they changed the 15 inch wheels to 10 inch wheels. The 10 inch wheel now comes with the Tiller. This makes the whole unit ride way too low. We bought replacement 15 inch wheel barrel wheels that fit the 3/4 inch axle shaft, and cut some 3/4 inch PVC to adjust for the axle width difference in tire types, now the Tiller works great on all settings as it should have. Buying new wheels cost $50.00. When you pay over $1200 for a Tiller, it should work out of the box. No one at Sears was able to help with this issue, so you are on your own solving the problem. The only other choice is to cut the drag stake off 3 or 4 inches. And yes, the lift handle is hard to lift from sitting on the tractor, but we manage and we are in our 50's. The wheels and lift handle are two big drawbacks, but it does till the soil well, and we have used it for 20 hours on our half acre with no breaking parts, so I will give it a 3 star, instead of 1 star rating.

Pull Behind Tiller

I purchased 4 years ago. Really great tool for large garden such as mine. Last year the transmission froze. I looked and the transmission fluid leaked out at the bottom and probably got hot and broke the shaft. Sears only sells the whole transmission, no parts. Wanted $750 to replace transmission. Charged me $100 to come to my house to tell me the transmission needs replacing, which I already knew. I assumed they could replace the shaft. I am a 50 year customer of Sears. They ain't what they used to be.

Rear mount tiller made short work of my very rocky garden soil

I have a 53'x26' vegetable garden area that we created last year.  The soil that was used for fill was rocky and a pain to till (had a small walk behind tiller that was constantly jammed with stones).  It took 2 solid days and many tears to get the job done, poorly.  This year we decided to have compost delivered and till it in with the help of a service.  The compost was delivered but the rototilling service didn't show. I purchased this tiller today and within 1.5 hours the job was done!  I could not have been happier!  I am still floating on air about it.

The assembly was easy.  Connecting it to the tractor was a breeze.  Starting it up and running it was a piece of cake!  I didn't have any difficulty at all using the "engage/disengage" lever.  The only thing that I found difficult was the cotter pin for the depth bar...but even that wasn't much.  I think if anyone had been struggling with a walk behind tiller they would coo over this tractor pulled version.  Love it!

 

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman Rear Mount Tiller

The Sears pull-behind tiller is ok as far as tilling but an ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE to manipulate.  The bar that raises and lowers the tiller would make a body builder sweat.  It about tears your arm out of the socket.  Do your homework before buying.
