If You Yearn To Till, This Fills The Bill!

Pros:Built to outlast your lifetime and the lifetimes of several subsequent owners.
Cons:If you let it get away from you, your neighborhood is in peril...
The Bottom Line: Buy this baby, gas it up, jack up Cat Steven's "Tea For The Tillerman" on yer iPod, and tear part of your homestead a new one!
The last couple of decades have produced a veritable plethora of home tiller products, ranging from the well-advertised Mantis to machines like this one. Almost all of them are improvements in one way or another over the ill-designed rear-tined bucking broncos of yesteryear, all of which pretty much guaranteed the need for several visits to the chiropractor following a brutal session of busting sod.
Recommend this product?
That said, if you want to accomplish some serious tillage and don't mind spending mucho dinero (or maxing out one of your credit cards) to do it, this is your tiller. Lightweights like the Mantis and its many imitators pretend to be up to the task (although sometimes the televised task involves shredding a sheet of plywood(!) or some other esoteric exercise similarly removed from real tilling), but using one of them vs using the Troy Bilt Pro Line is like parting someone's hair vs giving them a killer (gore could be involved) mohawk.
If you doubt the need for a heavy-duty machine that looks like it could survive a first nuclear strike, ask yourself why the very first tillers required one or more horses/mules/oxen for motive power and employed a plowshare that could cleave rocky or clay soil like a knife through butter. An additional bennie is that any operator of the Pro Line looks a lot more manly than your Tiny Tim type tiptoeing through the tulips with his/her gas- or electric- (electric!) powered micro-tiller, with very little effect.
