Customer Questions & Answers

What type of gas is best?

I don't see anything that mentions the preferred fuel. Is ethanol-free better for this engine?

Reversible tines?

One of the features listed under product overview is "reversible tines for cultivating or aggressive digging" . I know this may sound crazy, but I have researched many tillers/cultivators recently to consider which one I should buy. What is the feature of the tines that already come on the tiller if it is not to cultivate or dig into the dirt? Why do they need to be reversed?
Asked by: cookingjoe1
I reversed the tines on mine and could not tell much difference. I was only able to run mine for a total of about 4 hours. I went to use it again and the motor is locked up. It was running fine last time i used it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Earthquake 4 cycle I have a 15 by 30 Garden I love the four cycle earthquake it is everything that I expected of it and more! it is easy to control... I would recommend this highly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! We bought this to cultivate our garden between rows. Chews up the weeds like it needs to. Now we only have to hand-weed in the rows of vegetables. First year in a while that the garden didn't look like a weed patch with vegetables scattered about. This is not a tiller, but a cultivator. It grinds up already tilled dirt to keep down the weeds. Wish we had bought this years ago. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely pleased with my MC440 Earthquake cultivator! Very powerful, and lightweight, and it is very easy starting. I am able to start this with ease, usually on the first or second pull. I like that it does not require 2 cycle mixed gas... it runs on regular gasoline. This thing does a great job, even in the harder dirt, and around trees and so on. I am really very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect tool for an old lady! I'm a 60 year old lady and I love this tiller! I put it together, easy! I start it up, easy each time! If you need a tiller that will do the job yet is easy to handle this is the one you want. My flower beds really needed some work and I also am preparing my front yard for sod. All by myself! I started with just a shovel and rake but decided to invest in this tiller. Now I'm almost done. Really worth the money! Great investment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with purchase! The cultivator is very easy to assemble, and use! We did make a mistake when assembling and the pull rope was wrapped around the bar but it was an easy fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've had good luck with this so far Easy to assemble, had no problems starting. Really nice to have a small motor without having to mix oil with fuel. Have approx 25 hrs run time now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good little tiller. This cultivator did exactly what we wanted it to do, which was dig up the flower beds that are too big to do by shovel, but too small to use the full size roto-tiller. I really like the 4 cycle engine, because there is no mixing of gas and oil. It is light weight and easy to move from one space to another with just one hand. I haven't been able to use it yet because my husband has laid claim to it, so it is out of my reach until the new wears off for him, but no matter. The beds are ready for fall planting and I didn't have to lift a finger to get it done. LOL. The only reason I gave it only a good rating on the features, was because I thought it had a fold down handle for storage, but I compared so many cultivators before I chose this one, I may have gotten mixed up on that feature. But it really is not a big deal and definitely not a deal breaker. Over all, I am very, very happy with this machine.
