The Land Pride RTR1242, RTR1250, RTR1258, RTR1266, RTR1274 & RTR1282 Reverse-Till Rotary Tillers turn the soil to prepare a seedbed for gardening or lawn seeding. With uses in landscaping, gardening, and other residential applications, the RTR12 Series offers an economical tilling solution.
The RTR12, and all Land Pride reverse rotation tillers, tends to achieve greater depth of penetration, moving and pulverizing more soil in the process, while burying residue as opposed to leaving it on top. NOTE: Quick-Hitch may require a longer driveline, which is available through Land Pride Parts.
Available Models: RTR1242, RTR1250, RTR1258, RTR1266, RTR1274, RTR1282

Stamped Chain Case
Stamped forming gIves the chain cover strength.
Cast iron gearbox provides durability.
4 ‘C’ shaped heat-treated tines per flange. “C” Shaped tines require less hp to move through the ground. Four tines requires less horsepower than 6 tine
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.
