What features make the perfect garden tiller? Some gardeners prefer a light, maneuverable machine, while others favor one that is heavy and stable. Some believe that chain drives are the most efficient, while others argue for the sturdy performance of gears. Indeed, it's unlikely that you'll get many people to agree on much of anything about rotary tillers, except that the right one can save you a lot of work in an ambitious gardening project ... and that there are a lot of different types available.

Our chart of tiller specifications reviews some of the major features that characterize walk-behind or handheld cultivation devices. Happy window-shopping!
