Tiller rentals in the 5 HP range don't have the power to be sod busters like the next big step up, the 13 HP tiller, but they can be a tremendous asset when turning over bare soil or an existing garden or bed. This tiller rental tills a 26-inch swath up to 12 inches deep, or you can reverse the tines for a surface till of 2 to 4 inches.
|Tilling Width:||26 inches|
|Tilling depth:||Up to 12 inches|
|Weight :||130 - 160 pounds|
|Engine:||5 HP gas engine|
To save wear and tear on the machine and yourself, water the area to soften the ground you'll be tilling the day or evening before you plan to rent a tiller.
This tiller is very handy and can be used in closer areas than larger tillers. However, it can't till through a surface layer of lawn. If you are going to be working in areas that may be too narrow for a larger tiller, plan on removing the existing layer of lawn with a sod cutter rental.
