The Honda FF500 is the big brother of the FF300 counter-rotating tiller, sharing many of its features but with the benefit of a more powerful engine.
The FF500 is equipped with Honda’s 160cc GCV160 four-stroke petrol engine, which delivers smooth power with excellent fuel economy. It is mated to a four-speed gearbox providing three forward and one reverse gear. The engine setup is completed by the inclusion of a high capacity 1.7 litre fuel tank and an easily accessible recoil starter ensuring ease of starting in all weather conditions.
The key to the FF500’s functionality of its four counter-rotating digging tines which are able to cut through the most compacted soil, offering a working width of between 36cm and 55cm and a depth of 20cm to tackle the heaviest cultivation work with ease. For added versatility you can remove one set of the tiller blades, reducing the working width and allowing greater precision where required. The FF500 can turn in its own length, which makes working up and down narrowly planted rows of crops much less tiring. The FF500’s practicality is further enhanced by the inclusion of an ingenious security loop handle with multiple grips allowing the tiller to be safely operated from any angle, while its large rear wheels with high-grip tyres ensure you never lose traction.
The handlebar folds away to facilitate storage, while a retractable front wheel ensures added stability when moving the FF500 from site to site. An optional Ridger tool adds to the FF500’s versatility by saving valuable time and effort when planting or earthing-up potatoes, tubers and other crops.
