Cub Cadet RT 75 250cc 18 in. Rear-Tine Tiller is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE advertised as "counter rotating rear tine tiller" The tines rotate FORWARD, even though the tines were mounted with the cutting edges positioned for counter rotating. Tractor supply refused to take it back because it was past the 30 day period, even though I was unable to use the tiller when first delivered due to damaged wheels (had to have new ones shipped) Called cub cadet and after 2-3 weeks of emails and phone calls I have yet to reach a resolution to this issue. I will NEVER order another Cub Cadet piece of junk. HORRIBLE customer service!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheaply made Cheaply made, i've had my tiller back or repair three times since I bought it in less than two months. The shifting lever still does not operate properly. The tines on the tiller are cheaply made they break and been very easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far I'm loving it. After spending the last decade bio-intensive digging garden beds by hand or using a puny mini-cultivator this tiller is a dream come true. I have tilled up my entire fenced in garden space and the family garden in about a day and a half regular working hours. All I can say is this thing is POWERFUL as I'll say. Best to cut down grass and sod as low as you can get it with a mower first because it rips through the soil but the grass seems to clump up under the tines. You will easily have your entire garden area and more under control in no time with this thing and be able to focus on the more enjoyable aspects of your garden. Shipping was prompt they said 5-7 days and I got it in town in 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from power and quality w/a couple misses Other reviews I've read grade it down based on the lack of a front counterbalance weight, and that is justified. But... while it is a no brainer, to me that is small because it is so easily compensated for and it has so many other great features not found in others for this price. What confuses me is that the great features of this model are not even listed on the TCS website so other than a larger engine, it does not stand out. Like a cast iron drive frame with bronze gears. This thing is built like a tank. With the larger engine (250cc compared to 190 or 205 on all others) this thing goes right through roots 1.5 inches thick. Another feature I like is the swivel handle so you can run it from either side to avoid walking in the fresh tilled dirt. It is not perfect though as there are only two drive modes - forward with backward rotating tines or backward with forward rotating tines. There is no way to disengage the tines while walking it forward to get to where you are going to plow without totally disengaging everything and just pushing it or lifting the back high enough to clear the ground while the tines continue to turn. This also makes it difficult to turn at the end of a row and go the other direction because it requires lifting the rear very high while making a sharp turn. The counterweight would be very helpful here. The directions specifically say do not till while in reverse, so having the tines spinning forward while the wheels are moving in reverse does not make sense to me but it may help if the tines wedge into a larger root or gets something tangled around them... The one other thing I would wish for is that they would put the same tires as on the RT 65 version that TSC sells as those tires have much larger lugs on them which I presume would make a huge difference in traction once the soil is loose. These are minor to me because I have a rock solid powerhouse of a tiller for a moderately good price that should last me a very long time. Just tie on a little weight in the front at it is good to go. Be aware though that because of these inconveniences one does have to muscle this tiller a little more than one which has the front weight and can disengage the tines.
