Garden tiller is used to plow the garden. Tiller means lifting up the soil, breaking apart the clods of dirt. This study is aimed at design of tiller blades using reverse engineering, fabrication of garden tiller and Analysis of tiller blade using ANSYS. The reverse engineering process is used to get the dimension of existing products, it’s nothing but reproduction of manufactured product. Co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) is used to extract point data of the surface of the model generated by measuring it surface. The main work of CMM it to acquire data acquisition system, data preprocessing, surface fitting and finally developing a CAD model. Tiller blades with different dimension were developed by using co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM).  Appropriate blade tip and length, the main dimension of blade is designed which reduce the energy requirement for tiller blade. Based on the dimension of tiller blades are fabricated and static analysis is done by using ANSYS software to get optimum results. In the present work static analysis evaluate the effect of steady loading (i.e., initial torque) on a blade whose dimensions were modified. By applying initial torque static analysis is used to evaluate the stresses, deflection and reaction force on a blade
