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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hardtofit Product does the job
I bought the digging tines because I have some clay soil that requires more effort than the regular tines can provide. I have used it once and it worked as advertised.
