If I were you, would look at and consider a cub cadet. I bought one a couple of years ago and have been extemely satisfied. One wonderful feature of the cub cadet is that it comes with dual rotation tines. They either run forward or reverse by simply shifting a lever. Reverse tines are best for breaking new ground and forward running tines are best for tilling already loose soil. The cub cadet is reasonably priced as well at under $900. Mine performed wonderfully over the past two seasons, with never more than one or two pulls before cranking. What ever tiller you get, be sure and ALWAYS use fuel stablizer in the gasoline that is added to the tank.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.
