    We've got a good amount of money to purchase a rototiller. Looking for any and all information/experience you have with one.
    Thanks, Annette

    For a large area chose a rear tine model, they are much easier to handle, self propelled driven by wheels rather than by the tines is also superior. Check for dealer support before purchasing.

    Annette,
    My Father in Law has an older Troy-Built Rototiller for sale for $350. It runs good, has good tires and decent paint.
    It is old and uses a little oil, but he has kept it in good condition.
    I am in Houlton. PM or answer me here for more information.
    Chas
