    I already have the Stihl kombi system with tiller attachment. That is way too small for 1/4 acre Garden. I'm looking more for a full size self-propelled. Rear tine

    I just looked up your recommendation. Wow. Those look amazing. Definitely the real deal with a price tag to boot.

    With a 1/4 acre, it is right on the bubble of renting vs buying. I would rent a rear tine from a few different places over the next few years. Then if you find something that you like, look to buy a used or new one of a similar model as the rental. Essentially you are using the rental to "test drive" several tillers.

    Looking to pick one up for my company also. What do you recommend for a larger walk behind and also a smaller handheld version? Is BCS the only way to go? Totally new to the tiller market.

    Yeah I know,It was more of a suggestion if you work on it little by little or between crop

    Not sure they are the only way but they have a nice offering. Barreto makes a nice machine as well. I'm a firm believer in buy once cry once as these machines will hurt upfront.
