Product information

Description

This high-specification garden tiller from long-established British manufacturers MTD is characterised by its 66cm tilling-width, a feature that combines with an adjustable depth-bar to make it exceptionally flexible in use.

It's been fitted a premium-grade power-unit from MTD themselves, the overhead-valve ThorX 55. Thanks to its OHV configuration, this 173cc four-stroke motor will prove quiet and smooth in operation; ultra-dependable; and surprisingly cheap to run. A cast-iron crankshaft and a dual-stage air-filter work to maximise the engine’s service-life.

The MTD T245 Front-Tine Tiller incorporates a worm-gear type transmission, which not only ensures rock-solid dependability, but also ensures the maximum amount of torque is delivered to the tine-shaft for superior tilling-performance.

A heavy-duty steel guard prevents stones flying-up into the operator’s face; while the inclusion of a front transport-wheel makes moving the tiller from place to place a simple, hassle-free operation.

The handlebar can be folded-down if space is at a premium in your storage area.

Fabulous Tiller! After much deliberation, we settled on the MTD T245 hoping it would be big enough for larger areas, adjustable to smaller areas, manageable by my wife and easy to transport to and from the allotment - it does them all! Assembly was straightforward, my wife and I lifted it easily up the garden steps, it started 1st pull and easily and then rotavated deep and to a fine tilth - perfect.

Up at the allotment, it did larger areas with ease: once the rear spike is dug in, I can manage the machine with two fingers, you just lift the handles a bit to allow it to move forward a little and on you go. None of that desperately holding on to runaway rotavators. My wife can start it (no faffing about with primer bulbs etc) and use it easily. It goes up the ramps into my van easily (but see comment about wheels).

Only criticism is that the transport wheels would be better if they were larger and on a longer axle - moving the machine around over rougher ground at the allotment is a a bit awkward as it topples over fairly easily. Would I buy another? Definitely!

Good Powerful Machine This replaces my Mantis tiller so it takes a bit of getting used to. Overall, first impressions are excellent. It starts easily every time.

With its power and weight it cultivates even the heavy clays at home with ease, whilst on the lighter soils at the allotment it cultivated very weedy abandoned ground in one pass, with only minimal tangling of weeds round the tines. A very effective tool. My only gripe is that I find it awkward to release the drive quickly when I am gripping tightly with both hands to hold the machine back

Replacing an Old Friend Ordered on Sunday received on Tuesday! Replaced a 50 year old "Norlett" cultivator. Took a little time to assemble - found it easier to use common sense than try to follow the wordless diagrams.

Seems well built, not as solid or heavy as the old one so makes it easier to handle. Plenty of power to cultivate deeply in our heavy clay soil - liked the discs.

The engine started first pull, every time. Garden planted: very pleased!

Early days This seems a robust machine. Not easy to release the clutch lever whilst still maintaining full control of steering it. Starts very easily. This was a replacement for Einhell model. The service from team at MowDirect was A1. Thank-you Mow Direct.
