My favorite is the Howard GEM. I 've never seen on in person but they look like beasts in the pictures I've seen. My second favorite is the Frazer Rototiller, their two stroke engine have a great sound under a load.

I have a hard time choosing between my 1967 Cub 123/#1 Tiller, or my 1974 Troy-Bilt Horse. If push comes to shove, I'd probably go with the Cub. It's in pieces at the moment, but will be resurrected soon.

I have been lucky to have exposure to several different tillers, but they are all GT attachments.

Each tiller seems to have its own particular strong suit.
The tiller on the B112 was beefed up substantially and is a great ground breaker. I also does a good job tilling out the garden for prep planting.

The smaller 24" Massey works great as a weeder with the depth bar on it, the wider one does OK as a tiller (it could spin faster, IMHO)

The Sears Rotospader is the narrow one and the depth wheels allow you to really tune the action. It fluffs the dirt and throws rocks like nothing else I own. I wish they had a better drive tho, the extra engine is that much more maintenance & the belt has been a bit of a PITA a few times. I think I got it adjusted now tho.

I hope to have a rear tine walker by next year., then I can play with it too.

I'm not sure if it's my favorite, but I've been quite pleased with our Huskee Supreme tiller. The original engine had problems, so we did put a different one on it. Other than that, quite pleased.

My favorite tiller is a International Cub Cadet #2 tiller which I use on my 782 cub cadet I found a rare cat 0 option and installed on the tiller now it tills deeper and raises higher . I usually till 25-35 garden every spring in my area.  It does a very nice job.  I will post pics of tractor and tiller later today.
