Welcome to Rototiller
In 1912 Arthur Clifford Howard invented the rototiller in Australia. His
earliest designs threw the tilled soil sideways, until he improved his invention by designing an L-shaped blade
mounted on widely spaced flanges fixed to a small-diameter rotor. With fellow apprentice Everard McCleary, he
established a company to make his machine, but plans were interrupted by World War I. In 1919 Howard returned
to Australia and resumed his design work, patenting a design with 5 rotary hoe cultivator blades and an internal
combustion engine, in 1920.
A rototiller is a motorized cultivator that works the soil by means of
rotating tines or blades. The slower the rototiller moves forward the more soil tilth can be
Rototillers makes possible the chore of cultivating the ground without doing it
manually. Today we do not have to break our backs doing this job and creating blisters all over our
hands. And of coarse a rototiller can do the job in short order compared to doing it manually and taking
hours and hours.
Before purchasing a rototiller, you should ask yourself how often will you be
using it. If you only need it one time a year, it would probably be more cost effective to rent one each
year. But with renting a rototiller you will be locked into a certain day and certain time of day to use it
which will press you to get the job done quickly. If you need a rototiller year after year, you would
save money if you just purchased one now. If you decide next year to expand your garden, you will have the
equipment to get the job done. Another ideal you may want to think about is going in with a neighbor and
purchase one together, this will hold down the cost of purchasing a rototiller.
