“We want to provide a solution for all of our customers, whether they’re new to gardening or a seasoned grower,” said YARDMAX Vice President Shad Shafer. “Our new tillers provide an unmatched user experience through the products’ special features and benefits, as well as our commitment to provide the best customer support possible.”

More specifics about the YARDMAX rear- and front-tine tillers are as follows:

YARDMAX rear-tine tiller

The new YARDMAX rear-tine tiller offers a versatile solution for yard maintenance throughout the season. The machine provides 1-handed control for safe operation, while counter-rotating tines quickly and efficiently break up hard ground and deeply till soil, ideal for garden preparation. For ultimate versatility, this rear-tine tiller also offers forward-rotating tines for ongoing cultivation and row maintenance. Features and benefits include:

  • 208-cc Briggs & Stratton engine with 9.50 foot-pounds gross torque and 190-rpm rotational speed
  • 18-inch-wide rear-tine design with 7 depth adjustments and a 6.5-inch working depth
  • Single-hand operation
  • 13-inch, self-sharpening tines
  • Adjustable side shield and serrated rear shield

YARDMAX front-tine tiller

For operators who need a smaller option to cultivate soil in already-developed gardens, YARDMAX offers its front-tine tiller. This machine’s compact size allows it to quickly and easily fit between garden rows, while offering an adjustable tilling width to match the size of the operator’s outdoor space. Heavier duty and more powerful than a cultivator, this front-tine tiller uses a powerful 97-cc engine to deliver 180-rpm rotational speed, decreasing laborious time and work for growers looking to improve their garden area. Additional features include:
