Stihl MH585 Tiller
The MH585 'wide working width' Tiller from Stihl is an excellent, easy to operate machine with lots of features to make the job easier and leave you with a great area to work with. There's also a variety of add-ons to create the finish you're looking for.
Capable of digging to a depth of 10". This replenishes air pockets and allows water to soak to a greater depth, improving root growth and therefore giving you healthier plants.
It uses a quality, very powerful Kohler OHV engine, which is centrally positioned to keep the machine nicely balanced.
The fully adjustable handlebars allow you to position them for comfort and to off-set them left or right to prevent treading on the freshly cultivated soil. They also have an integrated anti-vibration system for added comfort and protection.
The 6 sets of Ø32cm tines are removable, this allows you to take off the outer ones and reduce the working width from the standard 85cm to 59cm. The MH585 also has plant protection discs to keep the current plants safe from harm.
There's a 3 position brake spur to help control the speed of the tiller and the depth it's digging.
The MH585 has transport wheels attached to make it simple to get the machine to the work area. Once there, the wheels easily flip up out of the way.
The MH585 comes with a reverse gear. This very handy feature makes it easy to back away from a wall or end of the row without disturbing the soil. It moves back slowly, so if there's plants around there's no danger of going over them.
For ground that's particularly tough and compact, add the AZG 030 additional weight kit. This kit increases the weight of the machine from 44kg to 62kg. This'll help prevent the Tiller from bouncing and skiding.
To create a furrow for planting, either purchase the AHK702 fixed Ridger or the AHK701 adjustable Ridger, The adjustable ridger is handy if you've got a variety of different sized plants to plant. It's worth also getting the AMR 031 Iron Wheel Set to drive the machine along easier.
