Models: 918H, 918B
Designed and Manufactured to Meet the Most Demanding Needs
Built for the rental and professional user markets; demanded and acclaimed by homeowners, contractors and nurserymen.
The BARRETO 918 tiller has all the performance of our larger tillers, but it’s designed specifically for smaller projects. That means narrower tires and a tine width of just 18 inches, allowing the 918 to work effectively in smaller areas. By mounting the wheel drive motor inside the tiller body with a gear reduction to the axle, the sprocket housing from underneath the tiller body is eliminated, resulting in greater clearance.
On the 918, the tines are redesigned so that they work either conventionally or in counter rotating mode. Fingertip controls offer infinitely variable ground speeds both forward and reverse, for incredibly easy operation. By keeping wheels operating independently of tines, you can easily match wheel speed to soil conditions.
Durability & Simplicity
The frame is constructed with heavy 3/16 steel plate with double welded seams, just like our larger tillers. By moving the wheel drive valve and mounting it directly to the wheel drive motor, we have developed the 918 tiller with fewer hoses. The control valve for the tine drive operation has been moved to the tiller body, thus eliminating hoses on the handlebar. We have added a bearing and seal to the tine shaft on the drive side, so that the motor has no radial load associated with it, and it is easily removed for service without removal of tine shaft assembly. Shafts and bearings are protected by seals and shields, and there are only two grease fittings on the entire machine.
