Reply with quote

We are doing some severe space clearing and leveling to move a storehouse unit (aluminum skeleton and dense coated tarp roof/sides). My tiller died of a broken transmission (mini - but got lots of years of use). It was great, but I remember holding many times to stop and get a stone out that would be jammed between tines. Can anybody suggest me the best one?

And bear in mind that you only have until Brexit Day/InBG Demise to get a reply... Wink

You might want to ask on one of the FB Groups or try Moscow Wolf, either by PM here or via his FB channel.

I don't know about the 'best one' - it very much depends on how much you want to pay. I bought this one My motofreza 3 or 4 years ago and it's given me sterling service with no breakdowns. My set-up has a maximum working width of 1.4 and goes down to 1.0m or even less if you have a tight spot and don't mind unbolting some of the tines. The salesman also threw in a heavier duty set of drive axles with stronger tines. It's done everything I've asked of it so far and as is common nowadays, is a generic Chinese rebranded model, no matter which country the seller may claim it's from.

There are many places which sell tillers/rotavators or 'motofrezi' (the Bulgarian name and larger, more powerful models are called 'motobloki') - the large DIY stores such as Praktiker and M. Bricolage usually have a selection - but I'd definitely go for one that has a good Power-Take-Off (PTO) system instead of the awful squealing belt-drive arrangement that many of the cheaper models usually have. I haven't bought them but I can fit and power attachments such as a flail mower or a water pump to my model. I can also hook up a reasonable-sized trailer which I have for hauling wood and such-like.

There are lots of more specialist garden/farm equipment stores dotted around Bulgaria and some of them have websites so you can window-shop online to help you decide what you want.

Feel free to ask if you have any more questions.

I've got a Honda, its powerful and came with extra wide tines, plough and another attachment that makes ridges (never used it). It can tow a trailer easily. It's so reliable. After no use for six months over winter it starts on the first pull.

I don't buy Chinese copies or cheap local kit if I can afford the better kit. The old maxim often applies "buy cheap, buy twice".

I think mine is a Gardena or similar name, but got it via the STIHL Dealer in Karnobat as the company is a part of the STIHL Group and thereby, I am guaranteed service and spare parts. Something one should be aware of before buying certain makes in Praktiker type sheds.

One can interchange the rubber tyres/wheels for metal contraptions that will grip in the mud. It is basically a Rotavator, but you can attach numerous gardening implements at the back. You can also buy a trailer to sit on and travel around the village at old fashioned dial up Internet speeds or use it to carry the drunks home from the Bar.

One Important TIP - Drain down the fuel from the carburettor before winter storage to avoid Spring time problems. I hardly ever use mine as the Mini Tractor is far easier on my back that standing behind this beast as it goes off like a team of Huskies pulling a sledge. Wink

These are the kind of reviews that they don't allow me to post on Amazon just like they laughed and wouldn't post my review of a rather large Ferrocerium Rod which I nicknamed the Donkey Dick Fire Stick - Oh well, win some, lose some. Wink Rolling Eyes

'Thanks to all those who have kindly taken time and effort to contribute so far with advice and help' would be nice, maybe...?

That link has numerous tillers listed. I'm out of this thread now anyway.

Out of this forum in just 4 days too... Confused
Thanks to MOD for having been here... occasion5
