Whether you’ve got an allotment or a garden with a medium to large sized vegetable patch, there comes a point where hand tilling the soil becomes a waste of your time and energy. At that point, a machine like the Honda FG315 is ideal.
This tiller is designed to be robust, yet easy to use. Its 160cc four-stroke Honda OHC petrol engine means that it can be used anywhere; you’re not going to be tied to the house by easily tangled extension cords. The engine boasts the kind of solid design that Honda is famous for, providing a reliably high performance whatever the season. What’s more, it runs on unleaded petrol, so it’s better for the environment as well. The tiller’s working width is an impressive 800mm,making it ideal for cultivating large areas of soil quickly and easily, allowing you get round to the more essential and rewarding parts of tending your patch. The tiller’s working depth of 325mm ensures that you know the job is being done properly. If you run into any hard ground the tiller’s slasher-rotors will make short work of it, while crop protection discs are also installed on all models as standard. The FG315 makes easy work of one of the more frustrating parts of tending your vegetable patch.
It can handle tough soil conditions whatever the weather, and is reliable enough to give you years of excellent service, which is why the machine comes with a 5 year domestic warranty as standard. But as well as being an extremely robust piece of machinery the FG315 tiller is also easy and comfortable to use.
The conveniently shaped Y-style handlebars can be adjusted to whatever height you feel comfortable with while pushing the tiller across your patch, however you can also turn the handle from side to side. This gives you an ingenious get out from the awkward Catch-22 so many other tillers leave you with- the realisation that you will have to walk over your freshly tilled soil while pushing the tiller, ruining your own work.
If you’ve got a garden patch that’s a real task to till, the FG315 is the perfect in reliable, easy to use gardening equipment.
