First-of-its-Kind Garden Tool Converts from a Powerful Front Tine Rototiller into a Narrow, Nimble Cultivator
Earthquake has introduced the VERSA™, the versatile two-in-one garden tool that works both as a rototiller and cultivator. A 21-inch front tine tiller, VERSA quickly turns into an 11-inch cultivator with simple, tool-less removal of its outer tines and shields.
“As a 21-inch-wide front tine tiller, VERSA delivers the power to break new ground and prepare garden beds in the spring,” said Kirk Hyatt, product line manager, Earthquake, the lawn and garden division of Ardisam, Inc. “The poly Tufflex side shields and outer tines are easily removed without tools, converting VERSA from a full-size tiller into a narrow 11-inch-wide cultivator for controlling weeds, aerating soil between growing plants, and maintaining planting beds and crop rows in summer.”
In addition to quick and simple removal of side shields and adjustment of tine width from 21 to 16 or 11 inches, four unique features of the VERSA provide important advantages over other tillers:
First, its right-sized, energy-efficient Viper® 99cc engine gives VERSA plenty of power while saving gas and reducing operating costs.
Second, with the profile of its engine, combined with a bronze gear drive transmission arranged horizontally instead of vertically, the VERSA offers the lowest center-of-gravity of any front-tine tiller for ground-hugging stability and control.
Third, for optimal maneuverability, the VERSA has a tighter foot print than other tillers, allowing it to pivot and change direction within its own foot print.
Fourth, the Tufflex poly side shields are an industry first in front tine tilling. Not only easy to remove with no tools for converting the VERSA, the side shields are tough and durable. They can take a beating from thrown rocks, sticks and other hard objects without getting dented or bent like metal shields.. Also, the shape of the Tufflex side shields is designed to direct churned soil downward.
The VERSA carries a 5-year limited warranty. Detailed specifications are available online.
Earthquake will exhibit the VERSA Tiller Cultivator as part of its full line of outdoor power equipment at the National Hardware Show, May 8-10, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nev. Earthquake will be in the Ardisam booth #11047.
