Your tiller will perform best if you adjust it to match the soil conditions. To optimize your tilling, we recommend following ESTER:
- Evaluate your soil conditions. Is the ground hard, or are you working in loose soil?
- Set the tiller according to the conditions. Depending on your model of tiller, you can adjust the depth bar, the tine configuration, throttle, or gear selection.
- Till the area briefly.
- Evaluate the tiller’s performance.
- Reset the depth bar or other controls as necessary, and continue tilling.
Setting your tiller properly depends on the model. Mini-tillers and mid-tine tillers behave very differently than rear-tine tillers. Always refer to the owner’s manual for your specific model before using your tiller.
