RTR15 Series Rotary Tillers

Available Models

RTR1558, RTR1566, RTR1574


Land Pride's RTR15 Reverse-Till Rotary Tillers prepare soil seedbeds for gardening or lawns. The RTR15 has offset capabilities to get close to fences or buildings, a formed and reinforced rear deflector to leave a perfect finish, and a #80 drive chain to stand up to the most demanding applications. These Land Pride Tillers have uses in landscaping, nurseries, gardening and light commercial applications.

Land Pride reverse rotation tillers tend to achieve greater depth penetration resulting in moving and pulverizing more soil. Also, they bury more of the residue in the soil. They will typically pulverize your soil in fewer passes than the forward rotation and will tackle hard ground by being 'sucked' in and staying put!

Frequently Asked Questions About This Product

Why does my Tiller make a clacking noise when I raise it out of the ground?

This is most likely caused by putting the driveline in too much of an angle causing the u-joints to rub against one another. Raise the tiller while in operation just enough to clear the ground.

What type of oil is in the chain case and in the gearbox?

The chain case has 00 flowable grease (Corn head grease) and the gearbox has 80-90 wt. gear lube.

How fast can I run the tiller?

It depends on the conditions, but 2-3 mph is about the right speed. You may need to slow down if you start to notice material building in front of the machine.

How do I slip the clutch?

A step by step procedure is located in the Operator’s Manual (manual can be found on Related Products Page below). It is imperative that this be done prior to operation and any time the unit has set idle.

Can I run the unit in reverse?

It is not recommended.
