I had a used rear tine Troy Bilt. Used it one year and sold it. The saying of "one handed operation" is funny to say the least. Try to turn one around. Without a differential, it will want to continue forward fighting you the whole way as you WORK to turn it.

The shape of the tines on a front tine tiller makes a big difference as to how much it will or will not "jump around" in hard tilling. I have a front tine Ariens 30 years old and it has curved tines and is fairly easy to handle compared to most other front tine brands. The tine curvature makes for a more gentle soil entry. By curvature, I mean they are "swept back" when you look at them from the side. Most other brands have tines that come straight out from the rotation axle.

I run my Troy built all the time one hand and some times no hands. Ya at the end of the row you have to pull hard but still far better then a front tine machine. Now if you want a real hard machine to run buy a Frazier those things where a monster I know I have one

Never found anything easier to run than my Frazer. It's heavy enough to run one handed, or no handed in worked ground. Turning it isn't easy though. Best tiller I've ever used. Just wish parts weren't so dear and hard to come by.

I have used this Frazer a couple time but found the troy built easier on the body over all. The Frazer is a bear to start and I also hate 2 cycle engines so that is another one of its problems
