Customer Questions & Answers

I have this cultivator for less than a year and it will no longer start. Suggestions?

I have tried using new gas/oil and have replaced the spark plug without success. The troubleshooting suggestions in the manual are useless. Do you have any other suggestions to try? Otherwise I will be stuck with a warranty claim and I suspect that will take more time than I've actually been able to use the cultivator...!

why does the powermate pcv43 pull so hard?

Asked by: Anonymous
My dirt is very hard and the cultivator bounces around like crazy. I just let the unit sit on the dirt and it slowly eats into the hard soil. If you lower the wheels, you may get it to slow down. I noticed that my unit slows down when the tires are set low.

10 in. 43cc Gas 2-Cycle Cultivator is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 196.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice cultivator. This is the second cultivator I own. My other one is a 4 cycle, and costs almost exactly double. I noticed a lot of reviews complain this cultivator doesn't do the job as expected. This is a cultivator, not a rototiller so getting the proper equipment for the job at hand is essential. This cultivator will do the job it is designed for and more. Like others, I use it when I should be using a rototiller, but am extremely impressed by what it can do for a small machine. Also, when done for the season follow the manufacturers recommendation for storing equipment. Generally you run fuel stabilizer through the system, and drain or run the fuel out. Some of the complaints on the equipment not starting since last year is because the equipment isn't stored correctly. This PowerMate comes with 2 cycle oil, enough for 1 gallon of fuel. Assembly out of the box takes about 5 minutes. You put the handles on, put the fuel in, and start according to instructions. The instructions are easy to follow. The cultivator started on the second pull. I like the 2 cycle over my 4 cycle because of the RPM's the 2 cycle creates. Also the drag bar and wheel adjustment are a much nicer set up than my 4 cycle cultivator. I've attached some pictures, one being cultivating hard unprepared surface. This is a highly recommended cultivator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine This is a great little machine for its size. It is lite wait has easy handles with great grips and are easy to fold up for easy storage. The gas tank is large for its size so you will spend less time adding fuel. It has adjustable wheels so you can set the depth that you want cultivate. The 43cc engine has plenty of power to get the job done. It is easy to move around and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Cultivator Does the Job The Powermate 10 inch 43 cc Gas 2-Cycle Cultivator arrived quickly. Assembly was fast and simple and didn’t require the use of tools. Everything about this cultivator is well thought out. The handles neatly fold for compact storage. The tines adjust for narrow or wide cultivating. The transport wheels and the digger bar have sturdy, handy mechanisms making adjustment simple yet secure. The right handlebar is even fitted with clips to secure the throttle cable. The engine is two-cycle and a container of pre-measured fuel lubricant mix is included with the cultivator. Once the cultivator was assembled and fueled I switched the engine to on, pumped the primer bulb 10 times as directed, and engaged the choke. After a couple of pulls the engine started and I was ready for cultivating. The Powermate is a bit loud, but not excessive. Pulling the throttle control engages the centrifugal clutch and spins the tines. I tried the cultivator out in some compacted clay around a fence that I recently constructed. It was very impressive and took the packed soil in stride. The test run took place in the middle of February near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the fence area was the best I could do. I did not raise the transport wheels or lower the digger bar for the test. Still, the cultivator was easy to control and loosened the compacted clay with ease. I plan on using this cultivator in the garden, in flowerbeds, and around shrubbery to prep for planting, till in fertilizer, and control weed growth. The Powermate 10 in. 43 cc Gas 2-Cycle Cultivator is both handy and impressive. It is perfect for small space gardening and managing plant beds. The Cultivator is good enough for my tomatoes and I’m very happy with it. I have no problem recommending this Cultivator to a friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Encouragement for Urban Gardening. Easy to start, easy to use, idea for small spaces. Very surprised how powerful this tiny tiller was. I expected it to just bounce off the ground but it dug right in and tilled the soil into a nice power. It was easy to start, and had a choke position, primer bulb, and pull start. It started on the first pull. It requires an oil/gas mixture of 50:1. The options include removing tines to narrow the tilling area even smaller. The lever which engages the tines is either on or off, there is no variable speed. Pretty impressive for such a small engine. It is also very light weight. The tines dig down about 6 inches maximum, could probably go deeper if you stayed in the same spot for a minute or two longer. It is not very loud even when engaged, more quiet than a gas mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small jobs This cultivator is great for small jobs around the yard and garden. Lightweight and easy to use to weed in between rows in the garden or weeding the flower beds. Easy to assemble and starts right up. Tines are adjustable, just remove the outer ones and just use the inside ones for very small areas. Worked very well in the wet spring soil. Surprising amount of power to dig deep. Wheels are a little wobbly where the connect. Wheels are adjustable in height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't I get one of these sooner First with the exception of the handle this comes pre-built and the handle goes on without tools. I added some fresh mix gas and followed the starting instructions, three pulls later it was running. I started and stopped it several times through out the day and it started with one pull each time after that whether a few minutes later or over an hour and needing to use the choke again. The 8 inch width is plenty for my garden and keeps it from being too hard to control. I was able to easily go down 2 or 3 inches with each pass in some heavy clay with just a bit of sand. After a pass to loosen the soil I added organic matter from my compost pile and was able to easily incorporate it the full depth. I spent less time and opened more area than past years when I did this by hand. I can't wait to put seeds in the ground and watch them grow.
