* Engine Options -- Tillers come in four- and two-stroke models. o Get a four-stroke engine if you can. + Easier to start up than two-stroke models. + Require less maintenance and are more convenient because they don't require any mixing of fuel and oil. + Produce less exhaust. o The more horsepower, the more powerful your tiller will be. + Rear-tine tillers generally have more horsepower than any other kind. + You'll appreciate that horsepower when you have hard soil to till.

What type of tiller

# Gas vs. Electric * Some smaller models are electric. o Limited range based on length of extension cord. o Electric doesn't have the same amount of power as a gas-powered motor. * Most of the larger models are gas-powered. o Gas-powered machines are more powerful. o Keep in mind that gas-powered machines require more maintenance, including refueling, engine fluid changes and refills, and winterizing in cold climates.
