18 in. 196cc 4-Cycle Rear-Tine Gas Tiller is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powermate rear time tiller Had it for a couple of weeks and used it for some yard work and will use it more this spring. It did a good job on the work so far, but since the area I used it on was red clay, it needed 2 passes. Pro's - easy to assemble, started on second try and is easy to handle Con's - no switch on handle to adjust engine speed Jury still out on long term use but seems to be a good tiller for my needs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble, although the instructions are a bit wonky on how the handles go together... Cha... Easy to assemble, although the instructions are a bit wonky on how the handles go together... Changing from 'transport mode' to 'till mode' is a bit difficult for one person, but with one person tilting the tiller to one side and the other inserting the pin for the wheel, it's fine. Engine starts easily. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd Tiller This is my second tiller. 1st one bought in WI. Used 6 years, went thru everything. Sold it, bought a new one in MO. Tough machine, 2-3 pulls, fired right up. This is why I bought the 2nd one. Cannot say anything bad about this machine. I would buy a 3rd, highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good tiller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful Tiller! When you first receive this, cut the sides of the box and fold down all 4 sides. This tiller weighs a couple hundred pounds, and you will not lift it out of the box. In fact, the instructions say to cut the sides of the box, but unfortunately the instructions are in the box. This is my 3rd Powermate yard tool, and I have yet to be disappointed. I also have their edger and their cultivator. This tiller came much more assembled than the instructions say. The clear instructions lead you step by step, and fortunately some of the steps are already done, so you need not do them. This is a HUGE plus, but Powermate needs to update their instructions to lessen any confusion. It comes with the oil, but you MUST fill the crankcase before starting. It does take the entire bottle of oil which was shipped with it. This is a direct drive tiller, so there is NO neutral per say. The tiller does NOT roll when not started. Eliminating the typical gear box is how many yard equipment manufacturers are going, to give the option of owning powerful machines at a lesser price point. Just keep this is mind when choosing your equipment. To "roll" this equipment, there are quick disconnect pins on the rims, so the rims are not locked to the axle. Once rolled when not started, you must put the pins back into the rim/axle. This machine started on the second pull, which was impressive. Some reviews say how hard equipment is to start after sitting for months. Do yourself a favor if any machine is going to sit for months on end. They are proper storing techniques for everything, and usually involves an additive to the fuel. I've yet to have a problem starting anything when properly stored. What I feel would be an improvement on this machine is quick disconnect pins for adjusting the handles. As it is currently, it's 2 bolts with nuts. I found when tilling, I had to move the handles to another position since the tiller was lower. It's a little bit of a nuisance to unbolt and re-bolt for adjustment. This machine does have reverse! A huge plus. I attached some pictures of tilling HARD soil ii a 20' x25' area. I tilled it each way, and took about an hour total. Impressive to say the least. This is a highly recommended product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so great love the reverse funtion. makes for easier use. good power and tills great. easy starter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful tiller - moderate cost This tiller arrived ahead of the shipping schedule and was easy to assemble with simple hand tools and adding the motor oil provided. The single speed transmission and counter rotating tines made controlling the tiller almost effortless. Hard soil took 2 passes to break through the crust but subsequent blending of amendments and moisture took no time at all. I added rubber side skirts to enhance tilling and blending and a front skirt to keep dirt off the rear deck. Drive mode to transport mode is easy to accomplish by changing the drive pins on the wheels. I also McGivered an auto-pilot to avoid continued holding of the forward control lever. This tiller makes less noise than my mower due to the effective exhaust muffler. The controls are easy to reach and use and it started on first pull, first time. Half throttle provides enough power for most tilling operations. I'm very happy with the quality and performance of this machine and would recommend it to anyone needing a compact yet powerful roto-tiller.
