Hello everybody, I plan on starting a garden in the spring. I have been looking at some garden tillers, since I will probably have to buy one soon. I just wanted to see if anybody had any suggestions on some smaller garden tillers. I don't have a very large yard, so I think a smaller tiller should work for me. Any suggestions on brands, features, or anything else is appreciated.

This may be too little...too late, but what the heck. I have two tillers and I like them both. My first tiller is an early 80's 8HP Troybilt Horse that is an awesome machine, but likely too big for your situation (although there are smaller models (e.g. Pony's) that may be right for you. The Troybilt's are great at breaking new ground and power composting (tilling in green manures and leaves, etc.).
My other tiller is a Mantis and especially for it's size, it's a scrappy machine. It's especially good for raised beds, small confined areas and cultivating, but not so much for breaking new ground. I use the Mantis too with straight tines for mixing and chewing up my working compost heaps.

Ideas are like children, there are none so wonderful as your own.
