If you’re working in the garden, on your lawn or doing any job that requires you to turn over soil, a tiller can save you time and effort. Choose from tillers in a wide range of sizes to match the scope of your project.
Select Your Power Source
Tillers are available in gas, electric and battery-powered models.
• Gas tillers range from small, lightweight units to large self-propelled models that can break new ground almost anywhere.
• Corded electric rototillers offer lightweight convenience and enough power to aerate and prepare seedbeds for planting.
• Battery-powered tillers are also light, and give the added freedom to move anywhere without a cord.
Find Just the Tiller You Need
Small tillers are ideal for working in tight spaces, like between existing plantings or along fences. A small front-tine tiller won’t generally have wheels, but they’re still easy to maneuver.
Slightly larger tillers with tines mounted in the middle have wheels to aid mobility. These are a good choice if you’re creating flower beds or vegetable gardens.
For bigger jobs, like breaking up ground that has not been previously tilled, consider a large rear-tine tiller. Look for a self-propelled model with counter-rotating tines for maximum digging power and ease of use.
If you’re digging up dead grass to help your lawn grow, look for a dethatcher. And if you just need a garden tiller for a one-off project, The Home Depot has a full range of tillers available for rent.
