FAQs About Tillers

Will a tiller remove grass? 

  • Yes, a heavier-duty rear tine tiller, such as a walk-behind gas-powered tiller, can remove grass easily. A walk-behind tiller can also aerate the soil underneath. 

How far down does a tiller dig? 

  • Tilling depth depends on the machine, but typically small tillers — also known as garden cultivators — dig up to 4 inches, and heavy-duty rear tine tillers can dig 8 inches or more. For more information on specifications like digging depth, consult the owners manual. 

Can a tiller cut through roots? 

  • Rotary tillers have the ability to cut through most small- to medium-sized roots that you may encounter. However, larger roots should be avoided as they may cause the tiller to jump, which can prove dangerous to operators.
