Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mm88 Choke position not right
Let me say I am happy with the performance for the price. The only thing I don't like is that it stalls when you turn the choke off no matter how long it has warmed up. I had followed the directions for starting (full choke, then half choke until warm then no choke). All goes well until you turn the choke off. It does However run fine at half choke. I tilled my entire garden (about 30 minute running time) on half choke (definitely warm) then turned choke off. Even at full throttle it stalls.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paula Great tool to have in the yard
I have Loved this handy little hard working yard machine! It has gone everywhere with me through out my yard and has performed many, many tasks perfectly for 2 years.
I have a large garden area that I till every year, almost 900 sq. ft. This last summer I xeriscaped my yard, and the yard machine was there to help perpare all of the garden beds.
The yard machine is Now acting up! :( Thank you Home Depot for providing the Manual on line. It has been helpful to figure out my problem with out having to search my house for the manual.
I think that it needs new gas and a tune up and it will be good as new! (I didn't baby it like the manual said to!)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jwayne Product is as described
Had no issue using the product. Though I did have to use it on almost all of my property, so about 3/4 acre, so my arms we sore and "asleep" from the vibration of the machine. Product never bogged down or turned off, and we had pretty big rocks, we moved into a home that was vacant for 2 years and no yard work had been done for 5 years. Had no issues cranking it or keeping it on. We had purchased a tiller that after 2 hours of use it caught fire and was broken, this tiller was ran for about 5 hours at a time, 2 times on the same day, never smoked or anything else. Worth the money, gets the job done

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Johnny WARNING! DO NOT BUY! DIFFICULT TO START
We have been using so many different machines, this one we followed directions from A to Z and it keeps shutting off every 2 to 3 minutes. Starting is extremely hard, you have to pull the cord from the front area, very hard to pull. Pull cords should be assembled on the side so you can easily start the machine. I was going to use it for a very small garden, 10x16 for vegetables, did not work at all and I ended up doing the garden by hand after picking up a digger axe from the store. This machine is worthless.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RoninLenoirCity Pretty good for the money
As usual I tried using it before reading instructions. Found it hard to start until reading the steps to go through then it was fairly easy. Like all little tillers, it is not like on TV. They like previously tilled ground, but it is major work to till in ground that is in grass or bare hard soil. Sooo, if you have a garden that is already established you will probably like this thing, but if you are starting from scratch you need to call some one with a tractor and plow.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DKumpula Died after 2 years of light use
This item worked reasonably well at first, although it is quite loud. After two years the gas line running into the tank became brittle and the fuel filter came off. There is no easy way to repair / replace the fuel filter, so it wasn't long before it started clogging up. After tearing it apart and cleaning it every hour or so of use, it finally stopped working one day and I haven't been able to get it running at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by redhd62 Good but could be better
this tiller has worked very well with relatively easy start-up even after hibernating alll winter in my storage shed. The only thing I would have different is the weight. You really have to apply muscle into it if you have hard or clay soil otherwise it will just walk across it. It also is quite noisy so I recommend hearing protection and wear gloves as the grips make your hands quite irritated after a short while of vibrating.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Magi Works pretty good, But
This product works pretty good but it is very hard to start and I have to leave it in the #2 choke position even after it is warmed up. I bought this to replace a different brand that I had a lot of problems with over the last 4 years that I had it. I am hoping this one will be better in the long run.
