      Comments about Husqvarna FT900 205cc Gas 26 in. Front Tine Tiller:

      I bought this tiller expecting top of the line performance like my chainsaw but was terribly disapointed. After ten minutes of use in sandy soil the two little spot welds on the handlebar attaching it to the upright tube broke completely. I took it in and it was replaced. The following spring I started to work up my small garden and the same new replacment handle broke again. This is a very poor design and needs to be addressed. I expected more from Husqvarna. They are shipping me a new handle assembly but I am not confindent it will hold up ... looking forward to seeing if there are any improvements on the new one. Aside from this the unit has started easily and has plenty of power for the job it is intended for.

          Comments about Husqvarna FT900 205cc Gas 26 in. Front Tine Tiller:

          The machine is of a reasonable design. A throttle control on the handles would be advantageous, but is not overridingly needed. The drag bar retainer is a joke, but is easily overcome with a bungee cord (design engineer should have to use what he designs).

              I'm very pleased with the front tine tiller. It preformed very well on new untilled areas I was doing to expand my garden bed. Very easy to use and maneuver. I wish the wheels were metal with rubber tires, I'm concerened about the durability of the plastic ones it has.

                Comments about Husqvarna FT900 205cc Gas 26 in. Front Tine Tiller:

                Tills very well with limited jerking but reverse does not function well unless you raise the tines from the soil and then reverse drive the unit. I wish they had not changed the handle design from the single pole to two smaller diameter handles not as strong and quite a pain to assemble. Other issue was loose fasteners quite a few of them, if you buy check all bolts before operating. The reverse belt was mounted with a half twist so these units must not be tested prior to shipping or it would have tore up the belt and been corrected. My last Husky was bought in 1985 and lasted till this month, No Issues with older made products when quality was #1. One last Issue I can not find a tech help number on their web site as they do not have tech support. Customer service referred me to a local repair center and they were not very versed on the tillers. All and all it does till well.

                • poor detail design levers

                  Comments about Husqvarna FT900 205cc Gas 26 in. Front Tine Tiller:

                  Bought this machine last year and used it in spring and fall and found it did a good job. MY only complaint is there is no throttle control on handle very difficult to use, but I added a throttle control to handle,much better. next problem is the clutch levers,BAD design, the handles should be turned over, on the bottom. The reverse lever when tilling and machine bounces around will do some serious harm. No cost to fix remove clip in pin and turn handle over. no cost involved. Several other reviewers had the same comment..CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW????? Also the wheel support needs a bolt between the legs through exisisting holes to keep wheels from spreading out. After modifications were made the machine works good..The "engineers" that design these machines should have to read these reviews AND...USE THEM!!!!!! I guarantee it will make a better product.
