I know nothing about that particular brand but have seen that style used. They work fairly well. The pulling tractor can idle down to go slow enough for the pull tiller to work. Plus not a lot of brackets and mounting to switch when you want to till. Some fellows use them behind ATVs for deer food plots.

Sears and Briny built them for garden tractors,work pretty good. The ones I have are picked up by the garden tractor lift one is a sleeve hitch the other a Cat 0 3pt.With the one pictured guess it has to be knocked into to neutral or raised to turn around and transport.

Never used one...

Under ideal conditions, soft well prepared soil, level and plenty of room to turn around, it probably would work.

But in the real world... How will it react with no one controlling it when it snags a root or rock? If it were a 3 point, maybe a different story.

If your garden is smooth enough to let a walk behind tiller go, let it run without help, it would probably work. I've never experienced that situation!

Here's their video. Note they do not show it in action...

Looks nice but I think it would take a lot of veggies to pay for it.

Any garden tractor tiller is really for cultivating or finish work not for ground breaking but for what they are designed they work good.

Just understand, that is a 6.5hp engine. If the soil is NOT tilled and is low on mulch you need to dig an inch or so per pass. Also a tractor with a hydrostatic tranny will make life so much easier. If you have the bucks the price isn't toooo bad. The most amazing machine is my Gravely with a Roto Plow on it. Fantastic set up. Goes from a dirt field to a puffy fluffy seed bed 9 inches deep and 12 inches wide in one pass. But you can go non stop. Here in SJ the soil is sand so easy to dig. If you have hard soil your first pass should be 4 inches. Wait a couple of days and then set the plow deeper and till again. I have one and it is built like a tank! This is a pretty good video.
