Rated 3 out of 5 by from ? even though the first one we brought home didn't work, the second one did and so far is working really good. We have very rocky soil and ever though it hangs up some it is doing a good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very heavy duty and strong I bought this tiller used in 2017 and have used it to break 2400 square feet of new ground effortlessly. The follow up garden work was a breeze. The heavy duty transmission gives the modest 6.5 hp engine very adequate power and the engine starts in one or two pulls when cold. Runs quietly and economically. Changing gears requires learning its particular method, which works fine when not abused. Even M60 tanks will break if misused. It likes a new spark plug each season and fresh fuel. Leaving old fuel in the carburetor after the gardening season is guaranteed to cause you trouble. I’ve also used it to level out bumps and knolls in the landscape. Its been a pleasure to work with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the work by itself. This is my second RT 65. I bought the first one 10 years ago and the transmission did lock up this summer so I picked this one up with a two year service plan knowing that the transmission was a potential problem as reported here. I use this thing to till an entire acre. It is a work horse and does everything for me. I just walk beside it and hold the bar down while it does rips everything up. I am just a huge fan of these machines.
