Finding a better way using machinery has been the rural property owners friend since time began. If you want to stir up the soil in order to prepare a new seed bed or in order to kill the weeds, the rotary tiller is the perfect tool. Attach this tool to a tractor with tractor rotary tillers and you have a great tool that is easy to use.
Some rotary tillers that are used with tractors use the PTO for power while others have their own motor that spins the tines in order to dig through the soil and to lift up the earth. Those working tines are attached to a horizontal shaft which is turned using a transmission that gives the torque needed to dig even when soil is dried and hardened.
Any type of tiller is an excellent way to aerate the soil and combine fertilizers or composts into the soil. They have been shown to be very effective at this type of work. The smaller tillers can be used to mix components before adding to the garden or can even be used for mixing your own blend of potting soil.
While tractor mounted rotary tillers are an excellent tool in many cases, in other cases, the gardener is better served using a smaller tiller. These smaller tillers are typically less expensive to purchase and do not require use of a tractor. They are still very effective at tilling the soil and work much better for beds that are small or near your house.
For the smaller jobs, you will want to use the smaller tillers that are operated as walk behind machines. Larger jobs are better accomplished using the commercial grad heavy weight tillers which are made to attach to the tractor and use its power take off.
Some of these smaller machines have the tines attached at the rear while others have them attached at the front of the machine. Rear tine tillers are typically more expensive, but are much easier to use. You will also find small inexpensive models that have a gasoline engine much like those used by a weed trimmer.
Owners of small to mid-sized tractors will be well served with the three point mounted tiller. The power of the PTO and the hydraulic adjustment of the depth gives precise control of the tiller. The disadvantage of this setup is that it requires an open area to work in. If your particular tractor is not equipped with the PTO, then you will need to get a tiller that is powered by its own engine. This type tiller may even be pulled by an ATV.
Persons that are serious about their crops and garden will find that a tiller is one of the essentials. If you have a larger garden, the tractor rotary tiller will cut the amount of work that you must do in order to have successful crops. It will make easy work of preparing beds for planting and getting rid of weeds.
