DR Roto-Hog™ Rototiller
Pro Model, Tow-Behind (Manual-Start)
Tilling has never been this easy! The DR® Roto-Hog™ tiller lets you cultivate a 3' wide path and even make precise changes to tine depth – all from the comfort of your towing vehicle.
Till while you ride, 3-feet wide!
Tow the Roto-Hog Power Tiller behind your ATV, riding mower, or tractor and you'll break ground and turn soil faster and easier than you ever thought possible! The DR does the hard work while you ride in comfort and adjust the tilling depth by remote control.
Unlike walk-behind tillers, the DR® Roto-Hog Power Tiller doesn't divide its engine power between moving the machine forward and turning the tines. The full power of its overhead valve Briggs & Stratton engine (9.00 ft/lbs torque) is dedicated to the real task at hand, tilling the soil. Your tow vehicle takes care of the propulsion, and with its weight, actually holds the tiller back to create maximum churn (and prevents the tiller from lurching forward as walk-behinds often do).
The result is the DR® Roto-Hog Power Tiller will till unbroken ground, including tough sod, in a fraction of the time required by any walk-behind tiller. Even better, it is twice as wide as most ordinary tillers and applies twice the tine coverage. That means faster, more thorough tilling, with none of the strain associated with tillers that require sheer strength to control them. Instead, you just ride and relax.

DR Rototillers - Tow-Behind Series
Thanks to tow-behind convenience, auto-depth adjustment, and dedicated power, tilling is easy with the DR ROTO-HOG Power Tiller. And thanks to rugged engineering and proven technology, that performance will deliver a great garden year after year.
Exclusive Features of DR Roto-Hog Rototillers
The Actuator raises and lowers the wheels, which in turn raise and lower the tines. A holding force of 250 pounds assures the tilling depth remains where you set it. The Actuator is powered by a 12-volt, 17-amp battery that will raise/lower the machine over 100 times on a single charge.
The Remote Control allows you to make precise adjustments to your tilling depth, turn the Spreader Attachment on and off, and raise/lower the Culti-packer Attachment without leaving your towing vehicle. And, on the Electric-Starting model, you can start and stop the engine with the Remote Control.
24 Bolo Tines
Forged of tough tempered steel, these tines spin at over 230 rpm to dig up to 7-1/2" deep and mix soil completely. The intricately designed sweeps and curves of each tine minimize the wrapping of vegetation.
Transfers full power from the engine to the tines. Shear pins on the tine shaft are designed to break if the tines hit an immovable object, to protect the engine and engine shaft from damage. (Four extra shear pins are included and they are simple to install. No tools required.)
Our unique hitch absorbs shocks and jolts so that minimal forward motion from the tiller is transmitted to the towing vehicle for smoother and easier operation.
Extra Heavy-Duty Steel Frame
This frame is built to last under punishing conditions. Made of 1-1/2" square tubing and 12-gauge steel. Baked on powder coat finish resists corrosion.
The tires are 14" in diameter and 5-1/2" wide for easy rolling during transport.
