 Dumb Tiller Question

Most tillers specify a working depth of 6 inches or so. But as they sit on the display floor or lot, the tines only stick down 2 or 3 inches at most below the shoes, even when the shoes are adjusted for maximum depth. Does the tiller have to be rolled forward to get 6 inches of depth? Or what?

 Dumb Tiller Question

Most tillers sit forward when on the floor. The tiller sits between the tines. The max depth is difficult to determine in static position as it is the max arc of the curve made by the tine when rotating. When sitting on the floor the machine is resting on 2 tines which are maybe 30 degrees from perpandicular to the floor.
Think of measuring the cut depth on a saw.

No, I think it is something else. I know what you are describing, but some of the tines are straight down and they are not 6" below the shoe. I have checked out several models and they are all the same. I am still thinking the unit has to be tipped forward, maybe?

Don, my tiller manual says maximum 4" on a single pass and up to 7" on multiple passes. If you've ever used one, you've probably noticed that the skid shoes actually sink into the ground if it's soft ground (and it will be on subsequent passes). I also assume you could take those skid shoes off and go even deeper, but I've never had any need to do so myself. As was already mentioned, you can get deeper and do a better job if you tear up the ground first. My personal preference would be a moldboard, or turning plow, but since I don't currently have a good one, I find that my middle buster does a good job.

When I use my tiller in my garden, I make multiple passes to get as deep as possible. This garden bed is well tilled from use over the years and after the first pass, the tiller sinks itself right down to the tine shaft.
