I don't know anything about the modern ones. I use a fifty some-odd model 5' Dearborn Ford.

From what I've seen at the dealers around here you get what you pay for. If you are gonna use it much I would'nt recommend a International, Modern or Howse brand. They all use Chinese steel and gear boxes.

If you can find a old IHC or Dearborn with a good gearbox you can put new tines on it. They get around $850 to $1250 for a new tiller around here.

PCC is right they do a whole lot better if you turn the garden 1st.

Then after you start using a tiller don't forget to shank or subsoil the garden spot every year or 2 or you will build a hardpan below the tilling that holds water and floods your garden ever time it rains. Then when it don't rain the hardpan won't let water come from below either.
