Heavy-duty rear-tine tillers such as this one from Apache have the extra digging-power you’ll need when tackling very heavy soil-conditions.
They can be used for both primary and secondary tillage, and are also suitable for turning in garden-waste at the end of the growing season, where it can decompose over the winter.
The Apache RTT3 is fitted with a high-powered 6.5hp Briggs & Stratton Intek four-stroke engine. These premium-quality motors utilise an overhead-valve layout that works to reduce noise and vibration, and helps to keep fuel-consumption and exhaust emissions at an impressively low level.
The steel tines on the Apache RTT3 have been heat-treated, so they’ll stay sharp for longer and won’t break should you accidentally guide the tiller into a solid object. Power is sent to the tines via a V-belt for optimum torque-transfer.
Thanks to its three-speed transmission (2 + 1), the Apache RTT3 Rear-Tine Garden Tiller couldn’t be easier to control and manoeuvre. The chain-drive to the wheels is housed in an oil-bath for reduced wear and therefore an extended working-life.
An adjustable depth-gauge means you get set the machine up to suit the soil conditions and the nature of the task you’re undertaking.
