Earthquake 20015 Versa Front Tine Tiller Cultivator
A garden is simply one of the best ways to provide your own food and not have to worry about trying to find produce, but if you can the vegetables you are producing you will find that you do not have to worry about anything all winter if you plan your meals properly. The garden all starts with one of the hardest parts and that is getting the garden planted in a timely manner that you need to have each spring. If you do not get the garden planted in time it could easily lead to you having some problems later on with fall frost. To avoid this you may need to get a front tine tiller and that is what we are going to review here in the Earthquake 20015 Versa Front Tine Tiller Cultivator to help you make a buying choice.
Features Of The Earthquake 20015 Versa Front Tine Tiller Cultivator
- The outer tines are going to be able to be removed without having to get a ton of tools to get the tines off. So this is a plus because you do not have to get a ton of extra tools to use the tiller and this makes it easier for you to have a tool that is converted to a different tool almost without any effort.
- The lightweight of this tiller makes it easier for you to maneuver around your garden. Since this is going to be easier you will not have to be concerned about the garden not getting completely tilled or have to worry about trying to figure out how you will be able to make some of the turns you have to do with the tiller.
- This is a tiller that does have a low center of gravity. This type of gravity will help to keep the bouncing you get with some of the tillers down to a minimum. So you will not have to worry about your tiller getting bounced all over the place on you when you are getting the ground prepared for the garden in the spring.
What I Like About The Front Tine Tiller
This is a feature that I really like because it makes it easier for me to move around the yard and know that it is going to work for what I need to have done. However, at the same time the weight is going to be heavy enough that it will help get the dirt tilled up, but it is not really as heavy as what you would like if you are planning on breaking the ground with the tiller for the first time of the season.
Easy To Maneuver Around
Since this tiller is not that large you will find it is easy to move around. This makes it easier for you to get the corners to be a little bit more crisp than what you would see with some of the bulkier front tine tillers that may not have the same ease of moving around in the yard. So if you are a lover of the precise look then you will like this tiller because it can definitely help in getting this done.
Motor Is Small, But Mighty
This is something that I never really considered, but this is a 3.3 horse motor which is a little bit on the low side. However, for the compact size of this motor it is going to get quite a bit of the tilling done in the yard. This will make it easier for you to have a fuel efficient motor that is going to make it quite a bit easier for you to get some great gas mileage out of your tiller.
What I Dislike With The Tiller
Tines Do Not Require Tools
Yes, I know this should be seen as a good thing, but I think it is a bad concept. Without some type of tools required to take the tines off you could have some problems of the holding pin shearing off. Then you are going to have a tine that can easily slide off on its own. At the same time you could have some problems with the tiller not working for what you need if the tines start to loosen up and work themselves free.
My Final Thoughts On The Earthquake 20015 Versa Front Tine Tiller Cultivator
I have to say this is a great front tine tiller that does have quite a bit of weight to help hold the tines in the ground sometimes and that really depends on your dirt that you have. However, I will also say this is an item that is lightweight, which makes it bounce a little bit. The good news is you can remove the outer tines to turn this into a cultivator rather quickly. Overall, I would have to say if you want to break up hard dirt that is almost clay this model may not work for you. If you have some softer dirt or dirt that has already been worked over several times then the Earthquake 20015 Versa Front Tine Tiller Cultivator could be the best option for you.
