So versatile, it's hard to call them just tillers.
More like multi-functional powered garden tools. With so many options and attachments to choose from, Honda Compact tillers can manage and prepare any type of working plot or flower bed, even your lawn.
Perfect power to work ratio
The Compact tiller is heavy and strong enough to turn the soil without skipping over the top.
At the same time, it has to be comfortable to use and easy to move around while doing the work. To maintain handling and maneuverability there are different wheels to choose from – pneumatic or steel – to suit different conditions and attachments. There’s even a handy, folding and detachable wheel you can fix to the front for easy transportation over different and sometimes difficult terrain.
The transport wheel
This is attached to the front and locked down, so you can move the machine like a wheelbarrow.
Detachable side discs increase the Compact tiller's versatility and stability.
A firm grip means better control
With different handles and controls designed specially to suit you and the machine, these tillers will be entirely at your command.
To make a job more comfortable the handles are adjustable. You get the perfect height that works for you, so you’re not constantly bending and arching your back every time you engage or change gear.
Walking through uneven, freshly tilled soil can be uncomfortable and hard on your feet and legs. So on selected models we’ve added a swing handle feature, which allows you to walk to the side on flat, uncultivated terrain.
Handy throttle control
Keeping a secure hold on to a Compact tiller as it digs in and moves across the soil is important for safety. So we’ve placed a sensitive throttle lever near the handgrip, which can be operated with your thumb to control the tiller’s speed while retaining a firm grip on the handle.
We also incorporate a stop safety feature known as a ‘Deadman’s handle’. It stops the tines from turning, without cutting the engine, the second you let it go.
The tines they are a changing
Different soil conditions demand different tines.
You can add different attachments to tackle the job in hand. There are standard digging tines, which lift and break up large amounts of earth, and slasher tines which will prepare and loosen soil ready for planting.
Sometimes a tiller will tend to wander while it works the soil, so we have supplied some handy side discs as standard. They improve the Compact tiller's straight-line stability so you don’t end up straying into your vegetables and digging them up before they’re ready to eat!
Welcome to the engine room
Focused 4-stroke power.
These Compact tillers use two types of 4-stroke: A powerful GC160 Over-Head Valve engine and a heavy-duty GX160 Over-Head Cam spec engine. Both engines are the lightest – for better handling – and the most compact of their type. They’re incredibly easy to start because of a light flywheel and decompression system so you'll be working in seconds.
Our low-maintenance, 4-stroke engines avoid the messy business of mixing oil and fuel usually associated with a 2-stroke. They run clean right from the start – even from cold – just like our cars and motorbikes, so fuel economy is much better too.
A machine for all seasons
The perfect year-round, multi-purpose garden tool.
On certain Compact tillers you can use a plough attachment for heavy allotment work or preparing large plots of land for growing vegetables. Other optional attachments feature a ridger tool for creating neat rows between plants and vegetables, and a potato lifter that gently lifts out potatoes without making chips of them too early.
The versatile digging tool
There are up to six different tine and rotor options on selected Compact tillers for you to use. The type of soil you're working in will influence your choice, but you can be certain we'll have the right one for the job.
Just right for picking after the potato lifter has done its job.
Attach a ridger tool to make neat rows between vegetables and flowers.
Did you know that a cubic metre of snow weighs a ton? Well before it gets too deep and too much of a handful, there’s an optional snow-blade attachment for this versatile machine. With the larger wheels fitted to the Compact tiller – shown below – you can power through and clear that snow.
No need to shovel away snow, the Compact tiller will do for you.
Taking care of your lawn
Say goodbye to the aches and pains of using a lawn rake.
As a scarifier, the Compact tiller will lift and loosen any moss from your lawn allowing more air to the grassroots. This will encourage new growth when you re-seed and produce a much greener lawn. There's also a less aggressive lawn de-thatching attachment for raking out loose debris, dead leaves and moss without damaging the roots.
If you need to scarify your lawn, the attachments are easy to switch from the cultivator to the optional scarifier.
Your lawn will start to look so much better soon after using a de-thatcher.
