Wanted to throw in my 2 cents worth earlier
Had a 14 week old Malmute puppy pulg the plug on the water bed.

I own my own tiller only paid $25 for it. but

If one goes out a buys a new tiller just for the spring till
and knows nothing about small engine repair and maintaince.

1. Most folks don't drain the gas, the gas does not keep
    ergo spring trip to shop to get carb cleaned about $50
    around here. Most folks don't do oil changes.
2. The motor gets used so little it rust's out. Current replacement motor
3. The average rental cost around here is the same as having some one
    do it for you. Plus you don't have the pain.
4. The cost of tiller, motors and maintaince over a 30 year period   
    is greater than having it done.
5. If you rent or have it done, you don't have to loose storage space.

A rear tine tiller is easier to operate but it doesn't get down
as deep. My front one gets down 10 in deep. Better for most

Just a few thoughts to pass on
