The Bertolini BT190 benefits from top-notch Italian engineering solutions, and as such is the obvious choice for the more exacting domestic gardener or allotment enthusiast.
Driving this high-performance, high-specification tiller is a powerful 5.4hp (182cc) four-stroke overhead-valve engine from Emak; the K700H. Overhead-valve engines have become hugely popular in recent years, as they run cleaner, cooler and quieter than traditional side-valve units, as well as being significantly cheaper to run.
Power from the engine is delivered to the tines through an oil-bathed chain-drive; a premium feature that not only optimises torque-transfer, but also works to greatly extend the machine’s service-life. Bertolini have included a reverse gear, so you’ll have no trouble freeing the tiller in the event it becomes dug-in.
