Questions & Answers

i purchased the powermate prtt196e last week. queston, what grade of fuel should i buy? low, medium, or high?

Asked by: jn
I highly recommend that everyone use fuel w/out ethanol in it for all gas operated equipment like lawn mowers, power equipment, chain saws. They will last much longer and have less issues using this fuel. This is what they sell on the lakes for boats to use. It may be more expensive, but it what you should be using in your boats & power equipment.

Do you have to push it or does it move by itself when you push foward switch?

Do you have to push it or does it move by itself when you push foward switch?
Asked by: Brooklyn
It moves by itself but you have to steer it and , depending on the ground conditions, requires some assistance in moving forward. It does take some effort.

18 in. 196cc 4-Cycle Rear-Tine Gas Tiller is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 157.

The soil hadn't been worked for 5+ years and is really tough as it is full of clay. This thing went through it like butter! It is very easy to maneuver, my wife can handle it just as well as I. We have owned it for 3 weeks, are very pleased with this tiller and would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. It's got an easy start, and adjustable handles to fit whoever is using it. So far there is nothing we have found that we dislike. If anyone is looking for a affordable, quality machine, this is the one for you!

Great value for money, cuts thru my clay soil like butter. Single forward speed is sufficient, adjusting throttle speed does the trick for how quickly you till. Design and quality appear to be very good. Only strange thing is you have to alter pins on both drive wheels to get into freewheel mode and then again to get into drive mode. For the price, I can live with that funny aspect. I suspect it is a cost thing. Very pleased overall

After using this tiller to break up a garden spot that had never been used before I am amazed. It is easy to start, digs fairly deep (will dig deeper if it's swung side to side while tilling), digs up rocks the size of a saucer, and will dig up small stumps if you take the time to till around the stump. If there is a drawback to this machine, it is that it only weighs about 200 pounds so it will buck a bit as it is dislodging rocks and bringing them to the surface. I really like the gearbox drive on it. Time will tell how it holds up to rough usage, but so far, so good. I wish every purchase I made was this good, I'm extremely pleased with this tiller.

I hated the construction of several of the higher priced models (belt driven to the tines). This little guy is gear-driven and I love her. I bought it after seeing a YouTube video a fellow posted of his being assembled and used for the first time. No, she doesn't have "features" aside from its counter-revolving tines and reverse drive. But she tears up ground as good as any BCS or hydraulic Berreto I've ever used (seriously); just not as wide. The soil I turned over was red clay. Deeply compacted, with a fresh, thick layer of grass on it. But she cut through it like a hot knife through butter. My only "complaint" is that I'm 6'3" and the handles are a bit lower for my reach. My back gets tired, but that is also likely attributed to the gut I developed NOT gardening!!!LOL That's what I get for not eating healthy. I definitely recommend this product.

Other than a few bolts not put in proper,. and the directions for putting the handles together don't match instructions. It's a very good product. We live on old farm land and this tiller did a great job tilling for our new garden. Had no issues at all. Just add oil and fuel and tiller started on first pull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tiller - Air Up the Tires Works great and handles easy. Starts on first pull. Tires were not aired up when I put together from the box. Remember to air up the tires or you'll have to replace the inner tubes because they will slide on the rims and tear the valve stem.
