I've got 2 of them I've used for a long time and love 'em. When the ground's bare one will work a garden a lot faster than a walk behind rototiller. I make it a point to fall plow. Once I had one of mine at my dad's while my sister, an avid gardener and user of a rear tine tiller was there before I started on dad's large garden. She went to town and when she came back it was ready to plant. She said there's no way you could do that that quick. I made a 4' wide leveling blade I use before planting that smooths and levels the ground.
