Grillo G85D
Grillo Motor Hoe

Starting in 2014, we are introducing another Grillo product to North America…the Motor Hoe.  These handy machines are essentially a professional-quality mid-tine tiller, and they are commonly used in Europe for tight-quarters gardening, such as in greenhouses, in courtyards, in permanent beds, etc., and they differ in several ways from the typical front-tine tiller you would find in this country.  Among these differences are: 1. All-hardened-steel gear drive; 2. Automotive-type clutch; 3. NO belts or chains; 4. Commercial engine; 5. Far superior balance and weight distribution; 6. Multiple speeds forward PLUS reverse; 7. Instantly adjustable and off-settable handlebars, and 8. The ability to detach the tiller tines and attach wheels to the axle, allowing the machine to operate some pull-type implements.

For anyone who has “beat their brains out” using a typical American front-tine tiller, using this machine is a whole new ball game; the handling of this well-engineered tiller is far superior.  Applications in North America abound, from tilling inside high tunnels to tilling in close-spaced urban garden plots, from Landscaping use to Rental use.  The maneuverability of this machine is amazing, as the design allows the operator to essentially turn it around within the space of its length.  We feel it is a great compliment to the walk-behind tractor selection we offer, perfect for those cramped spaces that are too tight for even walk-behind tractors to be maneuvered comfortably, and built with the same “agricultural-duty” quality.
