Cultivators & Tillers
Garden cultivators, tillers, and rotavators are used to turn over ground in spring and autumn to improve soil for planting or prepare for landscaping projects.
Cultivators use special spiked or hollow tines that break up to 8 inches of topsoil, so they are ideal for allotment gardening or for breaking up the ground for new build DIY. Front-tine tillers are smaller in size and easier to manoeuvre. They are typically electric or battery operated, and they are ideal for medium gardens or allotments where the ground is not completely solid. Rear-tine tillers are a more professional tool for breaking up hard or rocky earth over a larger area. The petrol models are heavier and more powerful, and this extra weight provides the best value when you need to loosen harder ground.
