Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TheBigShow2016 Had for 2 years.
I bought this unit 2 years ago and have used it a dozen times. My problems started with a completly smoked reverse belt. Next came a stripped wheel drive gear. This unit has only one speed forward and one speed backward. It has proven to be built of inferior qualty parts. Cost of parts are over $400. I would strongly recomend doing your homework before buying this unit. If you do buy it, make sure you purchase the extended warrenty, you'll need it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dmthegreat2001 Good Tiller
I bought this tiller earlier in the year to plant a garden. Tilled up an area about 40' X 50' that had never been tilled up before (had lots of grass). This tiller is a beast - tilled through the virgin ground very well and made quick work of our small plot. I've used it 3 or 4 times so far this year (garden maintenance) and I've had zero trouble getting it to start or stay running. The only complaint I have is that it only has 2 speeds - stop and go - and go isn't very fast if you are moving the tiller from one place to another (like from the garage to the garden area) it is VERY slow. Would be nice to have a couple of different speeds and also be able to move the tiller without having ti engage the tines. Overall it's a great tiller (we'll see how it performs for the fall garden and for spring next year).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by won58 Good product, horrible reliability and customer service
Bought a reconditioned model for almost half off, great deal so I thought. Brought home and worked great for the first year of use. Fired it up this year and it would go forward and backward and then you would start and the tines would move like a champ but no tire movement. Tore it down to the bare pieces, found a worm gear had a nice 4" flat spot worn down. Call up customer service give them the part number off the data sheet and was told no we don't sell that part but will sell you the full transmission for the price I paid for the tiller in the first place.
Have spoken to several people that fix tillers and they don't think it can be fixed as no parts are available. Guess it will be a 1 product purchase for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigbuckleRon great tiller
I see a lot of people don't follow what it says to do with tiller. like the wheels they do move back and roll the tiller with it not running easy to do. This tiller do work great digs right down no problem at all..The top hole in the depth bar is not the same size because that is not a guild hole it so you can pick up the depth bar love how easy you can move to site with wheel moved up to engine. and really love how it dig I dug 12 inches down by just pulling tiller back and going over same area. and that area had never be touched with a tiller. This will be great in all 3 gardens I have a 30 x 60 a 45 x 60 and a 15 x 30 this tiller has great power when tilling. yes if you run motor to get it to garden for where you store it. It runs SLOW but shift wheel like it said and you can walk any pace with it. and then put wheels back in tilling holes before tilling .just bought this today 8-20-15 so don't know about long haul how it will hold up. one thing I did not like is the pin that goes to hold tires on. can come off why using. I fixed that drilled a hole in pin and but a pin to hole the wheel lock pin on not just the ring they give you.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hotshot Overall good
After a week, store finally located one and got it for me. It was put together already, I think floor model from other store. Pins fell out of the drive gears on the tires and I was wondering why it didn't go very good. Bolt that secures the depth rod is too short, had to replace it with one I h ad. Don't like the counter rotating blades. Seems to pile up the tilled dirt in front of the machine not smoothe
behind like others I've used, ie; the red machine. I'll probably take it back. Pretty unwieldy to use. Motor runs great. Don't like the way it leaves the dirt you've tilled. Seems like I'll have to hand rake the whole garden. Not too happy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Datachick Season 1 great, then transmission blew
First season the machine worked great. Followed the instruction manual regarding how to prepare it for winter storage. It sat in my storage shed throughout the winter. April 2015 - the engine started up just fine but would not go forward or backward. Followed all instructions exactly, no change. Called the 800 # in the manual and spoke with an extremely condescending individual who talked to me like I was a 5 year old and said the wheels were not in the proper position. Clearly, the concept that I used the tiller for an entire season with the wheels in the correct position escaped him. Got the tiller to the local implement and they found metal shavings in the transmission fluid. The closest repair shop that could honor the warranty is over 200 miles away. DO NOT WASTE YOUR $$! Bought a new tiller elsewhere.
