    I use a Stihl Yard Boss with cultivator pick tines for my 6'x12' raised beds. Works great and easy to use without having to walk in the beds and compact the freshly tilled soil.

    It's faded red and probably 30-40 years old. Handed down from dad. I actually have no idea what it is. Hard to start. Gas cap leaks so I can't leave it out in the rain. Have to shut off the fuel valve when it's not running or the gas just runs through the carb, out the overflow and onto the ground. But it has tons of power to really chew up the Earth.

    An older Troy-bilt Horse, complete with the indispensible hiller attachment that's made tilling and making potato rows a work of magic.

    The plow blade, on the other hand, seems to be the product of some poor soul's pipedream, wherein they thought they were designing a skid-steer or bulldozer of some sort, failing to understand that there needs to be adequate weight and horse-power to move -anything- of substantial girth with a fixed blade.... Some Research & Development types are simply eternal optimists I guess.

    My rototiller? Ha, that be me...roto and tilling with a shovel, rake and hoe.

    Good exercise, but a little hard on the back.
