Product Overview

The Powermate Rear Tine Tiller is the perfect tool for any job from gardening and light tilling to hard groundbreaking work. The 9.6 ft. per lb. 4-Stroke OHV engine is both powerful and efficient. The gear-drive system 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. This powerful tiller works to complete the job quickly and effectively while still being easy to maneuver. The 11 in. counter-rotating tines dig deep into the earth to remove weeds and allow for fresh soil to be upturned and the 13 in. heavy duty, pneumatic tires stabilize the tiller over rough terrain. This machine boasts an 18 in. tilling width which allows the tiller to cover a large amount of space in one pass while still being easy to maneuver and capable of making sharp turns. This tiller makes easy work of any garden or groundbreaking project.

  • 4-cycle, 196cc OHV engine provides the necessary strength for tilling your soil
  • 18 in. tilling width covers more ground in less time
  • 13 in. heavy duty agricultural tires easily maneuver through tough landscapes
  • Self-sharpening steel tines plow dirt while maintaining the blade edge

Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Anonymous
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 155.
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

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.

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.

Tiller functioned great and pulled up many small to medium rocks no problems and no complaints. Great machine for lower cost tiller

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.

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.
