If you’ve ever used a rear tine tiller before you know they are the best way to break up sod and till soil. But if you’ve ever put a rear tine tiller in a garden and tried to control it around fences and precious rows, it may feel like holding onto a bucking bronco or a taking a bear cub for a walk. From breaking ground to creating a smooth seed-bed, the Earthquake Pioneer is designed to give you more control while still providing all of the benefits that dual-directions are known for. The arrangement of the transmission in the middle of the tiller creates a low center of gravity that is the key to a balanced and stable tilling experience. The transmission design also offers incredible efficiency allowing you accomplish the same amount of work as other tillers while taking advantage of an engine that is a lot lighter and a lot quieter than a typical rear-tine tiller. Featuring instant reverse, a simple pull of a handle allows you to back up without shifting gears. Dual control handlebars and a compact footprint make maneuvering in tight spaces a breeze and allow for one handed operation. Our super-wide airless tires never go flat and provide incredible traction. No matter what your garden challenge, Pioneer is designed to deliver from sod to seed.
