If you are serious about gardening then you will want to have the right tools for the job. But if you have spent any time looking at gardening tools recently, you will know that there is a wide degree of variance in not only tools themselves but within the types of tools as well. Take rototillers for example; it is quite impossible to simply walk into a store and pick up a rototiller without knowing some of the basics about rototillers. And because having a good rototiller is such an integral part of gardening, it is critical that you have an understanding of rototillers. Take a few minutes to read this page and learn about one of the major differences between rototillers — whether the rototiller is front tine or rear tine makes a huge difference in how the rototiller operates.

If you were to break rototillers down into two distinct categories, it would be easiest to divide them according to where the tine is located. This means that the rototillers basically come in two types — front tine rototillers and rear tine rototillers. Depending on the kind of jobs you need your rototiller for, one of these types may be better suited for your needs. Until you understand the differences between front tine and rear tine rototillers, you would be foolish to purchase a rototiller for yourself.

Front tine rototillers are named as such because the tine, or the blades which break up the soil, move in a forward rotation when the rototiller is being operated. One of the drawbacks to front tine rototillers is that they oftentimes require you to go over the soil several times to ensure that the soil is fully prepared for planting. Another drawback is that they are typically more difficult to operate because they require you to exert more force in order to control them. However, many people find that front tine rototillers are sufficient for their needs. This is mainly a function of price, as front tine rototillers are generally cheaper than rear tine rototillers. In short, front tine rototillers are well suited for smaller gardening jobs but are impractical for large chores.

Rear tine rototillers get their name because the tine moves in reverse when the rototiller is being operated. Generally speaking, the rear tine rototiller is easier to operate than a front tine rototiller. Rear tine rototillers have a broader utility because they can be used on small jobs but are also great for large jobs. Generally speaking, they are more powerful and are easier to use for extended periods of time. Another great advantage to the rear tine rototiller is that it can be used on hard soil. The main drawback to a rear tine rototiller is that it is usually more expensive than a front tine rototiller. If you have big jobs to do or if the soil you are working with is particularly hard, a rear tine rototiller is the way to go. Do not make the mistake of saving money to buy a front tine rototiller if what you require is a rear tine rototiller.
