    O I tried one a Dealer demo it long time ago. Think when they first came out and they still look the same

    I know its different, But Im looking at the final product a tiller will do a better job. I don't use my tiller for a final I use my Turf Shaper. It like a tiller but it stirs the soil and levels at the same time and final product is a smooth lawn.



    Guys around here try to seed behind it. All they have is a lumpy lawn and a uneven lawn .
    They are a cheap to buy that is why they are so popular.
    If that's all you ever had you wouldnt know difference.
    If I never seen the Turf Shaper work I say I would be a owner of a Harley Rake but I would have the one with the seed box on the back

    My Turf Shaper was 12k in 1981.

    I use a tiller to open ground up to grade it before the final step
    Its easier and fast to grade 6'' of loose soil vs 1'' maybe 2''of soil that a Harley Rake tilled up.

    When I seed I seed behind the Turf Shaper so there no need be riding a spreader across it. I'll cross it with a hand spreader.
