Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome tiller! There were very few things to assemble when it arrived put the oil and gas in and it started on the first pull! Everything works great on it used it right away with no issues! Awesome tiller! July 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garden helper This has saved my garden. It was really easy to use and is well worth the investment June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A top of the line product I read several of the other reviews listed both positive and negative. I have had mine for 3 months and am glad I did not follow the Negatives. The forward and reverse tine rotatation is one of the greatest assets. Starts 1st time everytime and cuts through everything. Reading the reviews helped me to watch for the errors that were made by assemblers. Check the book for proper assembly before and if you are having problems with the operation. If you are considering by a new tiller I highly recommend the cub cadet. You won't go wrong. October 5, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Difficult to handle The engine is a powerful beast, very impressive. Overall quality is fine. Our problem was that the machine is top-heavy. When I bought the tiller I noted the heavy block mounted on the front, obviously to lower the center of gravity. However, the tiller still tended to roll over when used, which was understandable when using on rough terrain, but it rolled even when used on flat ground. And the tiller was very heavy to return upright. So I will stay with the small, high-speed tillers that we have used for years. I like Cub, but this tiller just did not fill our needs. June 10, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor bearing design I purchased this model and it ran fine for the first couple of years. But then the rear bearing spun in the housing and ruined the entire case. It would cost almost as much as a new machine just for parts. Very poor design - I will never buy another because the main case contains everything, and if something happens to it you have to throw away the machine. The engine ran great, but for the hours I got out of it, it could have been a cheaper engine. May 27, 2014
