The Stihl MH585 tiller at Masseys in Swadlincote. The MH585 is a versatile multi-purpose tiller that is ideal for medium-sized plots of land and larger garden patches. The engine is powerful enough to turn over firm ground efficiently. This tiller is perfect for creating new gardens and flower beds as well as preparing seed beds for vegetable crops. In order to tend crops positioned more closely together with greater efficiency and care, you can divide the hoe set on the MH 585. This reduces the working width to 60 cm. Equipment features such as the integrated anti-vibration system, central handlebar adjustment feature for adapting the machine to your body height and reverse gear make working much easier. The equipment allows the tiller to effortlessly manoeuvre, change direction or navigate around obstacles. The low centre of gravity also contributes to effortless handling of the machine. The machine features folding wheels and an adjustable handlebar that allow effortless and space-saving storage of the tiller.

Stihl MH585 features
In the cleaning position, the blades on the STIHL tiller are easy to clean, assemble and disassemble.
Simple throttle actuation
The STIHL tiller can be steered using both handles. The throttle is within reach of the handles and so the speed controller on the handlebar can be operated with the thumb while steering. As a result, the power of the tiller can be controlled precisely when tilling.
Anti-vibration system Anti-vibration system
The anti-vibration system is integrated in the handlebar mount on the STIHL tiller. It reduces the vibrations at the handlebar, which also reduces the effort required to operate the machine for extended periods.
The blades on the STIHL tiller have a special shape that turns the soil over extremely efficiently with an optimised burrowing action.
Dividable hoe set
The dividable hoe set accompanying this STIHL tiller allows the variable adjustment of the working width. As a result, crops can be planted in rows close to one another. The lateral discs protect existing plants from sustaining damage during tilling.
Swivelling brake spur
The brake spur can be used to adjust the blade entry depth. The 180° swivelling spur makes it easier to work with the STIHL tiller in narrow passages and bends. It is also easily accessible, can be set to 3 different heights and is captive.
This STIHL tiller is fitted with a wheel axle at the rear for smooth transportation. The pair of wheels can be folded up during operation.
Kohler OHV engine with SmartChoke
This STIHL tiller is powered by a Kohler four-stroke engine that incorporates OHV technology. Overhead valves ensure that the petrol/air mixture burns especially cleanly and efficiently. The SmartChoke system makes sure that the tiller starts up easily and reliably. The forged crankshaft and cast iron cylinder liner were developed to guarantee a long service life.
The handlebar on the STIHL tiller can be adjusted laterally and longitudinally without using tools. The handlebar on the tiller can be folded over to allow simple transportation and space-saving storage.
