Dingo soil cultivator vs tiller

Hi Guys,
Is the toro cultivator just a tiller with the mesh wheel ? I can't find any good pics of the bottom but one looked like it could be a combo of tiller and power rake tines underneath,
TIA
Steve

It is a tiller with screening rods. Roller does not do too much. Have one, works pretty well. Wouldn't give it up, it is the right tool for the right job(s). It can be a slow process and it can be seed prep in one pass with a light raking. Here is a link to all the info on it.

The soil cultivator is pretty awesome. It works much like a tiller, but buries any old plant material leaving clean soil on top. I've only used it for seeding a few jobs…does anyone use it for anything else?

I have used it to prep landscape beds. Chop up clay chunks. If you take off the roller out front, which is easy, you can get in much tighter spots. If you can find one used for under $4000 assuming good shape you should buy it.

Same model. I think mine is a little newer. Regardless that was a heck of a deal.
