Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 205 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lightweight, Compact, Powerful The lightweight feature makes this item easy to store, move around, and use. The tiller appears to be fairly tough to handle all small and medium tilling jobs. The handles come with wing nuts that allow you to move the handles for easy storage. The engine started right up when cold, and was ready to go within a few seconds. We gave the ease of use a "3" because it took several passes to learn the machine. We followed the recommendations but had issues with the machine digging in and not tilling the soil. Once we figured out the best setting, it tilled the soil fairly easy. The video shows the tiller in action. The ground was fairly moist. November 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cultivating made easy Very satisfied with this Powermate cultivator from the moment I opened the box. Assembly was extremely easy, just 4 bolts and Tee nuts. From there a couple easy steps, just add the included oil to 1 gallon of gasoline, pour into tank. Make sure red power switch is on, then pump primer bulb 6 times, and pull cord a few times. Cultivator started right up, ran smooth. Then with very little pressure on the throttle the engine revs up nicely, and the tines begin to spin. Continued pulling throttle and engine responded coming up to operating speed, runs smooth at high speed. I tried cultivating a small patch of dirt behind my house, and this cultivator worked as expected, turned up the soil, too bad it's freezing here now, or I could have started planting my spring flowers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Feed it well and it will serve you well Out of the box, 2 minute assembly. Just connect the middle and top handle with provided four bolts. Pour the gas (mixed with provided oil) and you are ready to start this machine. You need to somehow hold the machine in place before you pull the cord to start it. The machine weighs so light that if you pull it without firmly gripping it against the ground, the whole machine gets pulled toward you. Its handling and control is very easy, in fact, at times it felt like a toy to me. Once started, it does what it’s made for. It worked hand in hand with me preparing 10X10 feet area that we had been planning for our vegetable garden since ages. If you are planning to buy it, keep in mind that it’s a cultivator, not a tiller. Even though the concept is a bit similar but not exactly same. This cultivator does a great job if your soil is not rocky. All you should be expecting from it is to break the surface’s crust to improve water, air, and nutrient penetration and absorption. At full throttle, it gets real loud so you do need ear protection. Many consumers had issues starting it after storing it for a season or so. I am not there yet but I have learned something over the years and I know it has always worked. STOP putting the lowest grade gas with ethanol in these tiny engines. I’ve always put highest grade gas and I never had issues starting any of my machines I have in my garage. Gas with ethanol works ok in the cars but with these small engines it’s a different story. For few extra cents, you get a peace of mind. Feed this machine well and it will serve you well. June 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A lot of power from a small package It is impressive how much power came from the 43 cc 2 cycle engine Assembly was easy and required no tools. Just tighten 4 handles and it's fully assembled. Handles loosen and fold in for easy storage and transportation. Add 2 stroke gas 50:1 and it will start on the first pull The engine is unassuming when it is idling but as soon as you squeeze the trigger it screams It turned medium hardness dirt with small roots into power in seconds. Please see video December 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fires right up! Needed to use this guy for a couple reasons. Just came away from a home expansion which left compacted uneven dirt around part of our backyard. This worked great in breaking up that soil and getting a lot of the rocks up to be removed prior to seeding. Not really a fault of the tiller, but be on the lookout as big rocks will jam in the tines. I wish there was a "reverse" function so you could un-jam the rocks when this happens. I also needed to break up some soil that was full of plenty of bermuda thatch prior to winter seeding. The tiller worked pretty good for this, but when against heavy thatch and dense soil there was a little bit of bogging down. Still I ended up tilling almost 2000 sq ft when the day was over. Probably a little more than you'd want to do with a tool this size but it worked pretty well. Overall a welcome addition to the tool shed. October 25, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrating Manufacturer Customer Service The shaft on one of the tines sheered off after less than 8 hours of use in compacted soil. Called manufacturer for Warranty support. Product must be taken to an authorized service center (15 miles to nearest). They will determine if the part is broken due to manufacturer defect. Was told this was likely to do hitting a rock. I would expect a tiller to hit a few rocks along the way. Only a single tine failed in this way. To purchase a new part was $78 shipped in 7-10 business days. Parts for tiller portion of this product are discontinued and not available from 3rd party parts houses. September 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Light, compact cultivator that is easy to manuever and does the job Light weight cultivator that assembles quickly, with only four easy release bolts that mount the handle and allows the handle to be collapsed for easy storage. This unit does not take much room in your shed - which is a big plus in my crowed shed. Adjustable depth of cut and adjustable width of cut from 6-10 inch, achieved by removing the outer tines. Adjusting the depth takes trial and error, and is done by loosing a quick handled bolt and changing the setting. Unit has four tines total. Rear wheels provide good maneuverability, as does the overall light weight of the unit. Two cycle engines requires a 50:1 oil gas mix (although the product overview says 40:1, a tag on the cap indicated 50:1). Push the priming bulb a few times, engage the manual choke, and after a few pulls and the engine starts (make sure you have the on/off switch turned on!) Blades will not engage until you rev the engine by pulling the throttle located on the handle. When engaged, unit walks through moist soil with ease, and cultivated the soil as well as any unit I have used before. This is not a large machine, and when I tried to walk though some thicker brush areas, it takes some effort to get the job done. It is best suited for general garden work, but does have flexibility and other applications. I used it as a bed edger by removing two tines and it worked great for that application. I no longer have to hand dig the edges. Overall, a nice compact and lightweight unit. Well built. December 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WORKS GREAT IN HIGH DESERT GROUND We live in the Southwest high desert country. Our soil tends to be sandy. The garden bed we tested this Powermate Cultivator in had been worked for several years adding compost and mulch. The bed has not been planted for the last couple of years but we did keep the weeds down. This mid-sized cultivator worked it's way through the ground with no problem at all. My husband was very pleased with the ease of handling especially after he was able to adjust it just the way he liked it. The Powermate Cultivator was easy to assemble and came with clear pictured instructions. I think this cultivator would handle breaking untouched soil in our area. For us it is well worth the money.
