Grillo Model 3500 motor hoe
Starting in 2014, we introduced another Grillo product to North America…the Motor Hoe. This handy machine is essentially a professional-quality mid-tine tiller. 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:
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 to last a lifetime.
