Agri-Fab Universal Tow-Behind Tiller - 36in. Width, Model# 45-0308
One heck of a machine!
I uncrated and assembled the tiller as the manual showed; hooked it up to my yard tractor, filled the gas tank, and within two hours had a half-acre garden ready for planting. Excellent Machine- definitely worth every penny I paid.

Not Worth The Money
I bought this tiller to start a new garden. I live in upstate New York where we grow more rocks than anything else, so I knew it would be slow going it when I started. Well, today was my third time turning the garden over and the mechanism that lifts and lowers the wheels broke. This machine is also not built very well. I am also not impressed with the forward rotating tines. I had to go over the garden numerous times to break it up well enough to plant. I would hope the agrifab company would be able to do better than this. Not impressed.

This product worked great. Tilled 4000 sq ft quickly. I had it attached to an atv. The trick is going at just the right speed. Also, multiple passes are required just so you don't bog it down by chewing through too thick of soil. Worth the money.

This has been a good solid machine I have put about 100 hrs on it and had a very positive experience. This machine starts every time and has withstood some abuse including very rocky soil.

I’ve used the tiller on both my garden and food plots. It worked great on everything I’ve used it on so far. Before with the small walk behind tiller it would take about 6 hours to till up the ¼ acre food plot and with this it took 2 hours. My garden was even expanded this year. The only problem I’ve had was when I hit an underground rock that messed up the alignment in the transmission that caused a tine to start hitting the lift rod and eventually bent it to so that I could not use it. I had to order a new lift rod assembly and I received the parts quick without any problems. I had to grind the tine back a little so that it wouldn’t hit the new lift bar. I ‘m still not sure positive on the quality of the tiller the motor works great, I guess I’ll find out how reliable it is after more use. I wish I had bought the extended warranty.

Agri-Fab Universal Tow-Behind Tiller
After reading some of the negatives and positive, and looking at other tow behind tillers I decided to give it a try. I am glad I did. I have a Troy Horse walk behind but a recent knee replacement limited my use of it, so I had to find something not as hard on my legs. The Agri-Fab outperformed the Troy in former tilled areas and in new ground. I used weight on each side and made three passes over the ground adjusting the depth lower each time. It did a great job and I have planted more garden this year than in previous years.

tiller for 4 wheelers
I bought your 36 inch tiller and made some modifications. I added two more tines to it's lenth to cover a 4 foot wide 4 wheeler. It works GREAT, and you guys should be thinking about making one for just such a purpose. The motor is plenty stroung enough to handle it.
Just something for you to think about.

Does The Job Well
I enjoyed using this tiller on my Cub Cadet 2550 Garden Tractor. I have rented tillers in the past and have an 8hp Troy Bilt. The soil here is tough and full of rocks. This tiller transformed my garden into a nice powder and never hesitated or stalled--it just kept on working and did a great job. I previously read the bad review, even before buying the tiller and I was hesitant about buying it. I'm glad I bought it and I look forward to using it for many years. I will probably add weights.

agri-fab tow behind 36"tiller
Even in my previously tilled garden this tiller did not do as good a job as my old walk behind 17" tiller, (which has counter rotating tines).
This year I wanted to put in a much larger garden and needed a larger tiller.
I called the manufacturer asking if the tines could be made to counter rotate.
I don't think anyone from the manufacturer has tested this product or they could easily see that unless the tines counter rotate, this tiller is useless.
