Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cub Cadet Tiller I bought this machine before I had read any of the reviews. I read the reviews before I used it and I was concerned about the transmission. Looking back a month later, I've broken and tilled about one and a quarter acres. The motor is great. The only time it's bogged down is when I buried the tines and when I hit a piece of buried conduit. I even hit one half of a set of tire chains. Stopped the machine, unwound the chains from the tines and set the chain aside. The motor started right up and away I went. The transmission can be balky. In the beginning, the shifter was sticky and hard to move. It has seemed to "wear in" as time has passed. It is easy to move between settings I use the most often. But I have spent a lot of time operating this tiller and another person might not see the same results as quickly. I just had to show some patience. On flat ground, this is an easy machine to use. But on the hillsides, it can be a handful. You can't forget that it weighs 250 pounds. A tank of fuel lasts over 3 hours for me. I think this motor is a gem. If you have large areas to do or lots of clayey soils (like me), this tiller will do a good job for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best tiller I have ever owned I bought this tiller in 2009 with great expectations for a summer garden in a spot that had never been cultivated. I was not dissapointed. The tiller started very easily and ran smooth. As I started down the first pass, I could tell this was going to be fun. This beast ate up the ground like one of those asphalt eaters. With my old yard machine,a front tine, I would have been there all day. I tilled up a 30x50 ft area in just under 2 hours.Most of the time I could hold the machine with one hand. The reverse gear makes turning around much easier as this is a pretty heavy tiller with plenty of brute strength for even the toughest ground. All in all I am very, very happy with this machine. I would reccomend it to anyone who needs a tough machine at a reasonable price. Good job Cub Cadet and thanks to TS for carrying it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from These Reviews are for a different model The RT 65 Club Cadet tiller is powered by a Honda engine. The Kohler engine featured here appears to have been introduced for 2014. Consequently, I don't believe that these reviews are for the model shown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rear Tine Tiller I have used one of these tillers for a complete season. In many ways it is a good tiller. I have had no breakdowns and it starts easy enough even after sitting extended periods of time. The ONLY thing I would like to see done differently with this tiller is for there to be more weight on it or different tires. When tilling at maximum depth it does not have sufficent traction. I have to continously lift the handlebars slightly to get it to move forward. When using the forward tine rotation I have to be on a constant watchout for it taking off and running too fast because the front end is not heavy enough to make the tires bite and hold it back. I have a large garden and other than that probem it works great. I would definately reccomend it to a friend.
