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 191.
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 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 Handy, well built cultivator I had the opportunity to evaluate this handy little cultivator. At first I thought I would have to wrestle with it like some others I have owned. Not so. The 2 cycle engine is strong enough to charge right between my rows with ease.. This time of year the darn weeds grow faster than the plantings and this cultivator chews them up very well. When I cultivate a garden my yield is always better tan if I let it go.. making cultivating well worth the minimal effort. This unit is best for medium to large home gardens. Easy to start and easy to use.. My kind of tool. Stores well as it does not take up much room.The 10" wide cut is perfect .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked well until it stopped after 1 & 1/2 hours operating Upon receipt the trailing wheel support was bend it appears during shipping. Started fine and would shut off OK, then after running for an hour & a half it just stop running. I first thought that it was just too hot. I let it cool off & not able to restart. Stopped project & check the following day with no ability to restart. And yes my fuel mixture was fresh. Tried direct prime to the carburetor, nothing toggled On/Off switch several times while attempting to start, not even a slight hint of combustion. Tried starting with various choke positions & throttle positions. Took it back to Home Depot where they could only give me in store credit since it was more than 30 days, I have had it for 45 days before I could actually use it. One would think a piece of yard equipment should be much more durable than this. Also Home Depots policy for gasoline equipment doesn't seem customer friendly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good little machin This was a great tiler for my needs (suburban gardening). We are really putting some work on expanding the flower beds this year. I needed a lightweight cultivator that wasn't going to drag me all over the yard, and that it will not use too much of my storage space. This POWERMATE unit is exactly what I needed. It required some assembly out of the box, but was not bad at all 4 bolts and 4 wing nuts. It easily started up which was a relief as so many pull start engines can be temperamental, and it will be so many stop and go as we do our landscapings. So far it has run great and we were able to till up a 5 foot by 32ft bed. I'm hoping that this tiller will work next year when we decide to do other side of our backyard I will definitely follow the manufacturer's recommendation as for storage which are as follow: if storing for more than 1 month empty the fuel tank, run the engine until it stop, take off spark plug and drop in cylinder 3 drop of 2 cycle oil, pull the starting cord 7 to 8 time to spread the oil evenly through the cylinder, clean spark plug and put it back on engine. Then next year we should not have to have problems to start (I HOPE)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good little machine as long as you don't hit any rock its easy for rocks to lodge between ... very good little machine as long as you don't hit any rock its easy for rocks to lodge between the tines and the shield and lock down the tines then u have to fish the rocks out . i am thinking about removing the top shield if that possible not sure if that would stop the rock problem once i get my garden free of any small rock then it should work like a champ .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUNK tiller I bought one used it once all was good. the second time it started running bad. Took it back and they reluctantly replaced it. The replacement acted exactly the same as the 1st one. I pulled the cylinder and found a burned piston and cylinder. I only used the supplied oil. this thing is junk dont buy one. you will be wasting your money and time.
