How to Choose between a Tiller and a Cultivator
HOW TO CHOOSE
Standard Rotating Time (SRT)
Standard rotating tine tillers see the tines rotate forward "pulling" the tiller forward. This feature can be used with or without self-propelled wheels.
Dual Rotating Tines (DRT)
Dual rotating tine tillers vary widely depending upon the specific type of tillers being discussed. The Champion DRT tiller see the tines rotate forward under standard operation but can also rotate in reverse for short periods of non-tilling activity. (E.g. moving the tiller out of a difficult location.)
Counter Rotating Tines (CRT)
Counter rotating tine tillers see the tines rotate "counter" or opposite the direction the self-propelled wheels are turning. If the wheels are moving forward, the tines are rotating backward. If the wheels are moving backward, the tines are rotating forward.
