Eats dirt for luch
For a smaller tiller, this thing has some power! The first thing that I noticed was the size of the engine on this tiller. It has a 5.0 and helps the tines chew threw our hard Ohio clay like it enjoys it. I needed something that would till a couple of garden boxes, flower beds and still be able to store in the garage without taking up to much space. One I put it together (took about an hour) I put n the oil and gas, primed the engine, gave two pulls on the cord, and it started purring like a

kitten. I really could not believe how quiet this tiller was, so that's a major plus in my book. As soon as I pulled back the handle, it started ripping that dirt up like it was angry at it. The other thing that I really like is that the engine won't shut off after you disengage the lever, only the tunes stop. As far as shipping, I did not see one scratch on this when it arrived, and it was actually packaged very well. All in all, if you ar looking to till an acre, this may not be for you, but for the backyard garden I would recommend it 100%

They really hit that sweet spot of power and maneuverability for yard work
I got this product for free in exchange for an honest review. After assembling and experimenting with it, I can definitely recommend this. It’s a great sweet spot between a lighter duty (useless) electric unit and a heavier duty (beast to use) unit, like you’d get as a rental.
I had tried a smaller, electric tiller in the past and hated it, even for my very infrequent and small scale needs. Now THIS tiller … works great! I’m not fibbing when I say that it started up on the first pull. The

unit’s not nearly as heavy and difficult to navigate as one I had borrowed from a neighbor in the past. In fact, it’s quite easy to maneuver. It dug through my soil effortlessly and pulled itself through without even a hint of difficulty. In the photo you can see that I made three passes on the deep setting and this took well under 60 seconds. I did find that I needed to hold it back and down a bit to let it do the work, as it wants to pull quickly through, without churning it up as much as I wanted. It’s very easy to switch between churning mode and transport mode by simply flipping the rear wheels, which requires no tools. Simply lift it up and flip them. There’s a depth bar that’s also adjustable without tools.
Installation was a bit of a challenge because of poor instructions. I’d say that the French and English pages were somewhat randomly placed. I did not notice a pattern. It was frustrating to find all of the English pages scattered throughout. It was also frustrating not to have pictures that were clearer, wherein I could see detail. The instructions were flat out wrong in several areas, presumably due to design changes. What appeared to be a throttle cable support arm was not shown in any of the pictures. Well, it might be, but I couldn’t make it out due to poor resolution. There was no place that I could figure out to install it. The single hole that I had was above the cable mount, which made zero sense. So I ended up drilling a hole through the handle, installing it in a location that felt right to me. This eliminated the severe angle out of the cable, leaving a nice, gradual transition. See my photo.
