Clean the area first
If you have huge weeds, debris, metal, rocks, stones, or other things that can harm the blades and need to clean it, inspect the area first. Even if you have a heavy-duty tiller, it won't cut through rocks and metal and may damage the machine. So clean up before starting the tiller to make sure the ground is suitable for it.
Tillers are available with different depths. You don't want to go too deep as it will damage the roots of your plants. As a general rule, use half the height of the grass for the proper tilling depth. For example, if your grass is four inches high, then you should set the tiller to two inches.
Make the land semi-dry
If your land is dry and hard for the tiller, you must water it and make it somewhat damp. The blades will cut more easily and roll more swiftly if the earth is semi-dry. However, don't water the soil so much that it becomes muddy after tillage. It's not necessary to turn mud into solid in order to use a tiller effectively. You can get started working with the tiller as soon as the solid has a good texture.
Cut any long grasses or weed
If long grasses and weeds obstruct the tines of a machine, it may be damaged. Cut off the long grasses and weeds as short as possible to avoid this from happening. This will make tilling more efficient and quicker while also reducing wear on your equipment.
Remove the brush from its natural habitat and use a mower or a sharp panga to trim it away from the turf you’re tilling. After that, clear out the area so that the tiller can work effectively when tilling for optimum results.
