Toro Gas Trimmer - Tiller Attachment?

I have an 18" gas-powered Toro Trimmer, and they have a tiller attachment available.
Has anyone used the tiller attachment?
I think it's about $65 or so, and I was thinking of using it on a small area of lawn in my back yard that I want to till and plant some grass. The area is about 10x10 and than another area about 20x3 or so.
Thanks, Chris

Setup your 'favorites' on ebay and you'll get an email when one comes up for auction.

many different manufactures of the so called toy tool attachment you describe. all have the same problem. they do very very little on hard un cut ground. if the ground is first cut up with a REAL tiller, then you can scratch around in the lose dirt with the little toy tiller attachment. so, to me they are a waste of money.
get a real tiller or even better get a mattock and do some real work in your backyard burning off calories and improving your health while you accomplish the producing of something you want.

Thanks. I figured a 1 HP motor wouldn't help too much. I'll probably do it by hand, since the area is not too big.

Or rent a tiller for a day or half day. In most parts of the US, at least, tillers are easily available for rent at reasonable prices.

renting tools is one good way to determine if the tool would be useful as well as determining if you'll really like to own the thing.
good suggestion on renting you offered.

Actually it is a "cultivator" attachment. They work fairly well in loose soil but for breaking new ground that has not been tilled recently, forget it. Go rent a rear tine tiller.
