Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

This Powermate tiller uses a gear-drive system that provides maximum fuel and engine efficiency, allowing the unit to run on less power input than when operated manually and the gasoline-powered engine allows the user to till a large area in little time. The tilling width can be adjusted from 11 in., 16 in. or 21 in. for maximum versatility. The 11 in. front-rotating tines reach up to 8 in. deep into the ground to turn up fresh soil. The 8 in. wheels help stabilize the tiller when operating on rough terrain. This tiller is equipped with front-rotating tines to help to move the tiller forward and a swing tail with drag stake allows for an easy change from till to transporting mode. This machine makes easy, comfortable work of any garden task.

  • Powerful 139cc, 5.0 ft. lbs. OHV engine powers through the toughest soil conditions

Is this gear or belt driven? Manual states there's a belt and would need to adjust tension after use.

Answer: 
I should clarify my answer - I was thinking about the transmission, which is all gears. Yes there is a belt that connects the engine to the transmission. I've never had a need to adjust mine, and as other users have stated, it is not a routine maintenance item. However as with all belts, it will eventually stretch and need adjustment.

Answer: 
Keen: my tiller is belt-driven. According to the owner's manual you are to check the belt after every ten hours of use and at the beginning of each new season of use. After reading the instructions regarding how to check and replace the belt it appears this process is not real simple. I have not accumulated ten hours of use so I will not worry about this until next spring.

Answer: 
The quick answer is YES.
The tines are driven by a gear driven transmission. The engine drives a belt that runs between two pulleys (one on the engine shaft and one on the transmission shaft). An idler pulley tensions the belt and engages the transmission. As stated in the Operator's Manual, the belt tension may need to be adjusted after some use as the belt will stretch and wear over time. I hope this

Answer: 
Yes , I've had them bend and brake on another tiller, because of rocky soil. Tonight I used this tiller with LOTS of medium to big size rocks and so on. This tiller was a killer. I was tilling parts that hadn't been tilled for a few years. Just take it slow and do a little at a time. I hope this helps.

I haven't encountered any in moderate soils, but I doubt they will cut through very rocky areas with ease. Tines warranty is for two months - and only for defects - not wear or damage.

Answer: 
Before tilling, all operators should walk and inspect the plot area in advance and remove any visible rocks, vines or tall weeds before tilling.The key to successful tilling is to begin with a shallow cut on the first pass, and then work an inch or two deeper on each successive pass.
Tilling depth will vary with ground conditions. When beginning to till in unbroken ground or in extremely hard soil, set

Before tilling, all operators should walk and inspect the plot area in advance and remove any visible rocks, vines or tall weeds before tilling.The key to successful tilling is to begin with a shallow cut on the first pass, and then work an inch or two deeper on each successive pass.
Tilling depth will vary with ground conditions. When beginning to till in unbroken ground or in extremely hard soil, set the pin in the highest hole of the drag bar (follow instructions under Tilling section in Owner's Manual). This will allow for shallow tilling. With the drag stake in this position, make several light passes over the area to be tilled. Reset for deeper depths with successive passes.
Regarding warranty on tines, the warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship. This warranty does not cover commercial, industrial, or rental usage, nor does it apply to parts that are not in original condition because of normal wear and tear, or parts that fail or become damaged as a result of misuse, accident, lack of proper maintenance, tampering, or alteration. We suggest you contact the manufacture of your Powermate Tiller by dialing @ (800) 737-2112.

Tilling areas with rocky areas is never a good thing to do with a tiller, regardless of how powerful the tiller is.
If you're attempting to till areas with softball size boulders and you break, or bend your tines, this would not be a defect in materials, as tillers are not designed to till rocks and boulders.

Answer: 
If the tiller is new take it back to Home Depot and trade it for another one. They will also help with repairs if it is more than 90 days old. Probably not much wrong from your question.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by So so tiller The rototiller was easy to assemble and worked well for the first two years. Starting the third has not been so good. We replace the spark plug, new fuel and we still can't get it to continue to run. It starts ok but after just a few seconds it quits! Not what I want from my rototiller!! There is absolutely NOTHING in the manual that comes with the tiller that shows all the parts with the names. We are now attempting to get into the fuel line and oil line to see if that is the problem (clogged). It's a shame that this was not made better, there should be NO issues for 10 years!! I see a new rototiller, one with a better working engine in our future. April 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Failed rather quickly After less than 10 hours of use, the tensioner that engages the drive belt melted. Other than that, it's done what it was advertised to do. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tiller! It was easy to set up. It started up with little effort, and was easy to use. Made quick work of my garden area. April 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor ( Not Worth the Money ) Bought this Tiller thinking iswas a good buy. But I was sadly wrong. With in 2 hrs of buying it I had to return it. Wasnt very happy at all. I went to use it one I got home and that's it began to give me some issues. It seemed to be running really rough. Then it would continue to die on me. My final string was when I was tilling and the blade fell off. April 8, 2016
