Are you looking at doing some tilling using a rotary tiller? You may be asking yourself “What’s the difference between a rotary tiller with forward or reversing tines?” Well, we’re here to help you!

First, the mechanical difference may seem obvious but is worth stating. Forward rotary tillers, till in the direction of the tractor while reverse tines work in the opposite direction.

What does this mean for your tillage though? A rotary tiller with forward facing tines won’t reach as far into the ground as a reverse tiller, but It will have a finer texture. In contrast, a reverse tiller will take more horsepower, but it will reach further into the soil while making it a rougher texture.

The difference comes down to the job at hand and how you’ll be using it, but contact your local C & B Operations dealership today for assistance!
