Poulan Pro PRRT900
Runs great , does a good job. The only problem with it is it breaks the right shear pin all the time. I had to take it to the service center to get that fixed. I hope to have it back soon. If they get that fixed my rating would be excellent.

Get a Handle On It / Mud KillsTiller !!!!
Bought a new tiller around 1st of Apr 2014, weld on handle broke after about 3rd time of using tiller. Poulan sent out replacement handle first part of May 2014. Replaced handle, replacement handle began coming apart after 2nd use, had machine shop weld and re-enforce handle have now used tiller several times with no further problems with handle. Poulan should recall and re-enforce all handles on tillers that use this type of handle to insure customer satisfaction. Also, this tiller does not work well when working in damp/wet clay soil. Mud sticks to tines and tine shield which then builds up until it begins rubbing on tires, which eventually binds up the tires making the tiller inoperative until cleaned. Tiller needs to have more clearance between tires and tines to help prevent clay/mud problem.

The tiller is great! Very easy to operate. The only problem that I have is, that the shear pins on the tines shear off way too easy. I used the 2 extra that came with it and I still had to go buy several more.

Reat Tined Tiller
Easy to start. Easy to use. Does an excellent job working the soil. Depth is easy to adjust and has more than enough range. The only con I see is the shift lever is sometimes hard to engage in the gear you want. Also the letters do not line up properly on the shift marker.

Misleading add from lowes
Got my poulan which was advertised with having dual rotating tines from lowes. One of the main reasons i bought it. It does not by no means it has reverse neutral forward and forward with tines counter rotating period. I do not know how much assembling is required so i cannot place the blame but the belt cover was bolted on without the spacers by the large belt pulley to hold the cover away from rotating parts. the nut was tightened down till it stopped unfortunately the was the pulley that stopped it as i ran it it burnt the paint off and started to crease the cover also the motor pulley was not tightened down and it came off while in operation,advertised as a chain drive tranny, I was surprised it was belt driven from the motor to the tranny. But after all that it did and still does what i bought it for well. I broke virgin ground with it and it had plenty of power to handle the job. Garden looks great now.

great till be sure to double check though
this till works great, very manueverable, strong, and makes short work of packed ground.
that being said make sure you double check the pulley alignment between the engine, idler, and drive before starting the unit for the first time. i did not and the engine pulley was out of alignment by half an inch causing the belt to skip off the idler and jam engaged. this caused the tiller to just start driving away even though the handle was released and damaged the belt.
once i removed the cover and found the root of the problme and correced it tiller worked great. not sure how much belt life i have now ...

Love my Poulan Pro PRRT900
I checked out and researched a lot of tillers before buying the Poulan pro PRRT900.
I wanted a tiller that could breakup some old packed ground, not be to big and not beat me up in the process.
A big Plus is the tiller has all the controls right at the handle where I want them.
I have had the tiller for 2 years now and it works great.
Starting the tiller has always been easy even after sitting over the winter in the garage.
