Cub Cadet RT65 Specifications
Strengths Easy Starting, Tough, Well Built, Amazingly Easy To Control, Shift Between Forward And Reverse Tines. Easily breaks up sod and hard soils.
Weaknesses Only average belt life.
Overall Great machine used in a rental fleet past 4 months. Two tillers total with no major problems as to date. Outperforms our Troy-Bilt at half the price.
Strengths The choice of forward and reverse tines,
Weaknesses For the long list:
Eats belts like grazy at least 1 a year
Does not break hard ground (clay) have to use reverse tines and push for all your worth to make it move,
After three years of service have to put $300.00 into new parts in gear box because they use a heavy grease for lube in stead of a heavy oil, set up tine shaft bearings and tore up case half.
Overall Don't waist your money!!!!!
BUY A TROYBILT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Strengths Starts easy with Hona engine
Weaknesses $32 belt broke after about two hours use
Overall Would never buy another Cub Cadet product. I should have known better when Home Depot said they no longer sell these tillers.
Strengths power, very strong for short periods of time
Weaknesses belts break to easy
Overall as long as you can afford new belts every use this tiller works like no other
