Sometimes I am a sucker for bargains and last fall I bought a used Yan-Mar grey market rototiller. It's a big tiller, between 5 and 6 feet wide. It's also kind of neat because the instructions are all on decals on the tiller and all in Japanese. But, each instruction has a little diagram and you do not need to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to operate a rototiller.

If you have never mounted one, they are designed to mount up very close to the rear wheels. It's the shortest PTO shaft that I have ever cut to fit.

Now I understand how the Japanese use these compact tractors in Japan. I got rave reviews from my wife and daughter after I prepared the vegetable garden this year. No plowing and then renting a portable rototiller for $35.00 - this thing did it all and left a seed bed that just had to be raked smooth. I also just used it to till about 2 or 3 acres of bottomland that we cleared out last fall with a dozer. I almost got stuck a couple of times with the 'bota in 4WD and the tiller roaring but just letting up a bit on the tiller was all it took. I may just go back lightly with a York rake and then will ready for seed.

I am seeing some pretty attractive prices for new tillers on the web. If I had it to do over again I might go the whole 9 yards and buy a new one rather than the rather beat up and rusty one that I got. But, it still works fine.

Depending on what you are tilling and where you store it you might find a new tiller looking used in a short amount of time! ....
