Item Information

Cub Cadet's powerful rear-tine tillers help you break new ground, turn over an existing garden in early spring or maintain a garden during the growing season.

  • SUPERIOR GROUND BREAKING - with 13 in. dual-direction, self-sharpening tines, the RT65 provides exceptional cultivating and seedbed preparation in any soil.
  • COVERS MORE GROUND - The RT65 features an 18 in. tilling width for a full garden. You'll be able to get the job done as fast as you need to, no matter the size.
  • EASY TO USE - Single-hand operation lets you stand to the side and steer the tiller with one hand so you don't have to walk in your freshly tilled soil. And an adjustable, vertical handle is a simple way to set your height.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tiller I bought it used right away was ok at best carburetors needs adjustments but is not adjustable and some of the safety covers were loose drives a little too fast for tine speed ok for small gardeners

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best tiller I have ever owned! This tiller does an outstanding job! It made the soil preparation a pleasure!
Date published: 2019-05-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the drive to pick it up preassembled! I risked it and purchased a Troy Bilt Mustang 18" through another vendor and both arrived damaged still crated in the box. So I decided to find something locally and found Tractor Supply had this Cub Cadet in stock, I did some YouTubing and watched a few reviews of this machine and I decided to give it a go. After finishing up some of the assembly, tightending up a few bolts that were loose and zip tieing a couple of wires tighter to the frame I fueled it up and put some oil in. It cranked up on first try. This machine very nicely broke into my compacted soil, even finding a few large stones, and after a few passes left that dark earth fluffier than dow feather. I'm very happy with my purchase.
