I rented a Husqvarna rear reversing tine self propelled unit twice last year. I was impressed with it. I tilled the entire thing in under two hours. It is about $600. I had been contemplating buying that but figured I research first. I agree with its borderline just renting however I'd like to use it all season long in between rows and around perimeter for weeding. I like the idea of renting a couple more to try out.
