Searching the best mini gas tiller
« on: August 19, 2019, 12:08 AM »
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?

I have over the last few years converted everything over to Stihl.  I don't own the mini-tiller, but my neighbor does and I use it pretty regularly.  It's at least 15 years old and runs great.  It has tremendous power for a small unit.  I know Stihl stuff is expensive, but in the long run, you get what you pay for and I am totally happy with my: string trimmer, backpack blower, blower/vacuum, chain saw, and pruning saw.

I have a honda fg110, it is very nice. I also have the dethatcher for it. If I had to do it over again I may get the mantis XP for the wider dethatcher. I have no complaints with it though, I see 4 cycle as a big positive.
