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 3.6 out of 5 by 207.
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 2 out of 5 by from Powermate 10 in. 43 cc Gas 2-Cycle Cultivator I'VE HAD THIS PRODUCT FOR ABOUT A MONTH NOW. I USED TWO WEEKS AGO AFTER A SIMPLE ASSEMBLY. I USE ONLY PREMIXED FUEL WITHOUT ETHANOL AS IT ELIMINATES THE MIXING. THE UNIT STARTED RIGHT UP AND DID A DECENT JOB OF PREPARING THE SOIL FOR THE UPCOMING PLANTING SEASON AND IT DISPLAYED ENOUGH POWER FOR MY NEEDS. WHEN THE WIFE WANTED ME TO PREPARE ANOTHER AREA LAST WEEKEND THE MACHINE GAVE ME A REAL HARD TIME STARTING AND I WOUND UP USING MY OLD FAITHFUL PITCHFORK INSTEAD. AFTER RESEARCHING THIS UNIT I FOUND THAT THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS ITEM SO I AM VERY DISSAPPOINTED WITH THIS PRODUCT. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS UNIT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powermate 43cc Cultivator First plus is the ease of assembly. Simply take cultivator out of the box, attach the four bolts and it is assembled. Included in the box is a bottle of 2-cycle engine oil which gets added to one gallon of gas and you're good to go. I followed the choke and priming instructions and the pulled the starter cord and it started right up. Cultivator has a good weight and can easily be lifted into the garden area to be tilled. I have two small garden patches and it worked great in them both preparing my soil for this years' tomato season. Dug a depth of about 4-5 inches and 9-10 inches wide very easily.

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 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money This thing was nearly impossible to start from the first use. Since it was my first tiller & brand new, I thought maybe I was just being a girl and though I dreaded attempting to start it, I was usually able to start it on the 5th or 6th try and several unlady like curse words later. Six months and a handful of uses later, and I can't get it started at all. Probably related to the fact that last use, any time I pulled the trigger to till it would die. But hey, IF I could get it started it would till great, until last time. I guess tillers are meant to last less than 10 uses... NOT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Cultivator This is a great little cultivator for small or light/medium duty cultivator. Would not use for my garden as is to large and living on side of a mountain that seems to grow rocks have to use my large power rototiller. But this is great and not hear as heavy as the rototiller so can carry around and is great for flower beds and such, sure will be great for touchup duty after garden in growing. Is 50/1 fuel mix, I use premixed 50/1 fuel because it keeps longer than the stuff I mix myself. Cultivator holds one can of premix and starts and runs great. Was going to take more pictures of flower bed but it rained again and over a inch so will be wet and more rain to come so only the two pictures of one flower bed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont buy this or any powermate product. its a one season product. and there are no replacement ... Dont buy this or any powermate product. its a one season product. and there are no replacement parts available for this. the cultivator's air-filter housing fell apart as the threads holding filter cover on stripped during the first season. the carb got gummed up at the start of the second season, and the fuel lines rotted/cracked, cleaned carb, went to re-prime the bulb and the bulb broke open. never had an issue like this with a upper end 2-cycle product (like Echo). PARTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR THIS, BUYER BEWARE.
