Tillers are mounted on the rear of a grooming tractor and is driven hydrostatically.

A tiller typically requires deep snow conditions and is used to break up compacted snow surface, to reduce snow and ice chunks, and to mix old and new snow.

The tiller itself is similar to a garden roto-tiller and consists of a rotating shaft (cutter bar), which has multiple tines that are typically three to five inches (7.6 to 12.7 cm) in length that condition the snow when operated at a high RPM, and a plastic comb or “snow finisher”

The tractor’s horsepower must be sufficiently large to operate the tiller.
