What are the differences between Garden Tillers and Cultivators?
Do you know the difference between a garden tiller and garden cultivator? Find out more now so you can choose the right petrol tiller or cultivator for the outdoor jobs you need to do.
To end the confusion, in this article we’ll explain the particular roles of garden tillers and cultivators, so you can decide which tool you really need for the outdoor task you have at hand.
What is a Tiller?
Put simply, a garden tiller is designed to break up hard, compact soil into loose, broken-up dirt that can then be used for planting. Two different types of garden tillers are available: front-tine, or rear-tine. Here’s how they differ.
If you have a small to medium-sized garden or allotment, and the ground you need to break is firm, but not completely solid, a front-tine tiller like the Husqvarna TF 324 petrol tiller may be the most suitable equipment.
As the wheels are behind the ‘tines’ on front-tine soil tillers, they are easier to maneuvre in more compact areas, whether you’re pushing, turning or reversing, and they make breaking fairly hard ground and loosening soil a breeze. As an added bonus, front-tine tillers tend to be smaller in size than their rear-tine counterparts, making storage and transportation much easier too.
When you need more power to break up very hard or rocky ground over a larger area, a rear-tine tiller like the Husqvarna TR 430 petrol tiller will be your ideal assistant.
They are larger, tougher and more powerful than front-tine tillers, and although they are heavier and more difficult to manoeuvre their weight provides an advantage when you need to loosen very hard ground in an extensive garden or allotment, or smaller piece of land.
What is a Cultivator?
The purpose of a lawn tiller is to break up hard and compact soil, whereas a garden cultivator like the Husqvarna T300RH petrol cultivator serves to mix up soil that is already loose and stir in compost or fertiliser so that it is ready for planting.
Garden cultivators aren’t suitable for breaking up firm ground but they can make your loose soil even finer, so that your garden or allotment will look better than ever.
