Pros:Tempered steel tines, handy remote control, and easy to use.

Cons:Mounting to the ATV and pneumatic tires.

The Bottom Line: This is a great tiller for someone with a large garden. It's particularly useful for those with disablitiles or infirmities.


I bought the DR Roto-Hog power tiller to make my life as a gardener with a large garden (3,000 sq ft) a bit easier. With the cost of this tiller around $2,500 it seemed a bit out of my price range, so I purchased a used one.

The pros of this tiller are the tough tines, remote control, and the fact that it’s easy to start and check fluids. I’m paralyzed and use a wheelchair so accessibility and ease of use was very important to me. After effortlessly hooking the tiller to the ATV I put it to the test. With a 9hp engine on board, this tiller sailed through the dirt and rocks. I was a bit nervous that I had damaged the tines from the amount of rocks that I have in my garden, but the tough tempered steel tines didn’t even have a blemish in them. I liked how the remote control reached to the front of the ATV so the driver could control the tiller’s height and start/stop it without getting off of the ATV. I was also glad to see that the engine started easily each time and the fluids were easy to monitor.

On the other hand, the cons of this tiller are the mounting to the ATV and pneumatic tires. The way that the tiller attached to the ATV could use some improvement. Perhaps a ball would be better than a pin. The pin allowed a lot of lateral movement that caused the tiller to bounce more than it should. The pneumatic tires are susceptible to flats whereas solid tires would probably be a better choice for this application.

Overall, I think this tiller is a good machine, but fairly expensive. I would recommend this tiller for serious gardeners with fairly large plots. One thing to consider is the capability of the machine you choose to pull this with. I have a 660 4wd Yamaha Grizzly and with the tiller set to the lowest position it really made the engine work on my ATV.
