Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AmateurLandscaper Digging Tines
I bought the digging times to dig up a mostly dead back lawn. Details of the tunes suggested it would be good for this type of job. I bought them specifically because it indicated somewhere that they would be better and quicker for this job. While I waited for the tunes to arrive I started the job with the tunes that came with the tiller. They did the job but we're having quite a time at it. When the digging times arrived I switched over and found only one real advantage. They seemed to make the job for the tiller a bit easier. This makes me think that the digging in hard clay soil with tons of rocks is not going to kill my tiller. It really bounced and jumped with the regular tines and did so less with the digging tines. They are the right tool but not as quick as I had hoped.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lawlady These cut the work in half
I absolutely love my FG 110 tiller. I bought these tines but I could never have imagined how wonderful using them would be. It was really easy to swotch the tines out to install these and then... Having the tiller inspired me to really expand my backyard garden. These times made breaking the ground so easy. I was able to till the garden so much easier and faster. These digging tines really cut through hard ground and weeds and dug down deep. I then was able to use the original tines for cultivating the tilled soil and mixing the soil with my compost.
Well worth every penny I paid.
I kept the heavy cardboard box they came in so I have a storage box for the tines and their spacers.

This little tiller is amazing. It seems to do a better job than some of the full size tillers I've used in the past. It has well surpassed any expectations I had. I used the digging tines to till an are of 12' x 70'. It handled it with ease.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BigSmoove Better than cultivating tines that come with product, but not great
Works a little better than cultivating tines, but I'm not sure they are worth the additional cost. Very easy to install and remove.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TRetz Just Amazing digging power
I am very impressed by the ability of these tines to dig through weeds and hard soil.
Last week, I dug about 100 yards of rows for winter peas in my wildlife food plot. I applied Round-Up 10 days before to kill the weeds, which were at least a foot tall. These tines sliced right through the weeds, roots and soil and dug rows about 4" deep. Unfortunately, they plugged with weeds after digging 15 feet of row. After that, I cleared the dead weeds from the rows with a string trimmer and the tines didn't plug up.
I tried various combinations of tines: 4 digging tines, 2 digging tines on one side with and without the wheel from my edger kit on the other side, one digging tine and one edger tine, one digging tine and one standard tine, etc. The best solution for me was two digging tines on one side and no wheel on the other. This combination dug a nice furrow into which I could plant the peas with my planter.
I've repeatedly failed to be able to dig any kind of furrow in these weeds with the regular tines that are shipped with the Honda FG110, so I am very pleased with these digging tines.
I also used them to till up my empty garden spaces after onions were harvested. Wow! They really pulverize the soil. I'm wondering what purpose the original tines will serve after this.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HomeOwner First set did not fit cultivator
The product is necessary and works great in hard soil as others have described. However the set I received from Home Depot did not fit. They caught on an indent and would not slide up to the transmission as they needed to do.
I took them to the Home Depot service desk. They sent me to tool rental. The guy there could not make them fit either. I returned the product for refund and bought a set from a local garden store. That set fit perfectly.
One of the four tines in the first set fit. The other three did not. I would bet Honda has other bad ones out there. Someone needs to inform Honda of this problem, but I doubt that happened through my return.
You will know you have this problem if the tines do not slide in to the transmission far enough to use the spacer. The spacer fits just fine when the tines slide in correctly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Harpster outstanding digging addition!
The addition of these digging tines makes the Honda Mini tiller even more versatile. My soil has a lot of rock under the 4 inches of top soil and these tines just tore right into them!

If you need to break-up ground with grass or weeds, the tines are the answer. These are for digging - not tilling.
