Customer Questions & Answers

Do the drive wheels have reverse gear

Asked by: 1313
yes
Answered by: ptasap
Date published: 2017-03-24

Can the tines counter rotate or go in reverse while the wheels go forwards? Most RT 65 models can do that.

I would like to order this tiller, but I want to make sure the tines can be reversed for deep tilling. Tines that only go forwards will run away on my hard clay soil.

Yes, that's its best feature.

18 in. 208cc Rear-Tine Dual-Direction Gas Tiller is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought the Cub Cadet 18in rear tiller because I had a small front Tine that would just not cut it... Bought the Cub Cadet 18in rear tiller because I had a small front Tine that would just not cut it for me, it would just bounce a lot even when the ground was soft. I put this machine together and started on the first pull. "I like It" I would say I love it but I have one small problem. switching gears is a bit hard and the rod that connects the shift handle to the gearbox is very flimsy and not strong enough. I have to fight it to be able to get it to go. So much that the rod got bent, I have not used it since the very first day I bought it. I ran it and did my whole front and back yard, it has been stored in my shed ever since. Did I spend too much money? Maybe for a one time use. I could have gone to my local tool rental place and rent one for $70 a day and forget about it. But I figured someone in the family would need it sometime. Other than the shift rod, the machine runs and performs very well.

One of the lock nuts to mount the handle was missing entirely, so a trip to town to retrieve that. The right wheel was installed with the valve stem to the inside as others have written. I have not changed mine yet. The tiller started the first pull; impressive. After I figured out where to put the indicator for the transmission, it tore up the 3000 sq foot field in less than hour. I ran over it several times, then again to till in horse manure and peat moss. It took more than a tank of gas to do one pass over the field. I changed the oil after 5 hours of use, and went to 30W. The reversing tines feature works better than I expected. It is heavy to do a ninety degree turn, but touching the clutch just right can help make it easier. It is slow in its transmission mode, but what's the hurry? I did lots of research before buying this, and it's just what I needed.

I have only had mine for a short time I used it only once so far to till my Garden. I like the way it handled. I have a 38 year old Troy Built that sill works mostly, It is just to hard for me to handle. I will soon be 90 & the way this machine handles, I will be able to handle it as long as I can still garden. PS-- I don't have the knowledge or the equipment to send you a picture, Bill

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watch the Choke Adjustment So for my third season I started my RT 65 only to have it not work. I went back to the reviews and decided it was me and not the machine. I quickly found the problem: I allowed the clutch adjustment to get loose and therefore not engage. I tightened it and it took off like new! I cannot say enough good things about this tiller!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a beast. I have used the machine for about 12 hours so far. It is awesome but you do have to get used to it. I have used it to make grass areas back into beds, 3 in deep setting and turn the 10x100ft garden soil at 6 inches deep without any problems. It can yank and toss you around some if you are not careful or dont have your footing. It works its way thru most roots and smaller rocks, as well as can take out your buried cable tv service or sprinkler pipes, so use it carefully. It is a mechanical shift so you do have to get used to rocking the wheels and jamming gears sometimes when it doesn't want to listen. I think I am going to have to build my new toy its own storage shed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad news Bought one from local farm store.Got it home fired right up but tines would never engage took it back they said it was fixed. It would till about 10 feet and quit keep checking tines but nothing binding them. Then all of a sudden it started working great. Shut it off to refuel, rest ared and it wouldn't dig. Took it back and got my money. I want a heavy duty tiller buy mtd makes all three that are on the market Sears, cub cadet and mtd gold ar r exactly the same just different colors. Now what??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tiller While using the tiller on hard rocky ground that has not been worked for years, it cut into the ground with ease, didn't bounce me around like other tillers that we have had before. It starts easy with one pull and goes easily into gear, runs smoothly and all I have to do is walk behind it as it does the work in breaking up the soil

We had... the blade bolts were not tight and we have not been able to use until we can tighten them. We had our son graduate from Basic training which took our personal time. I checked yes to would recommend and only good on overall rating because we haven't been able to use it yet.
