You'll have to check your location area. It's in-stock where I live but I did buy it on-line and had it shipped to my house because of the Cova #19.

Maybe 20#, its fairly light and easy to move around. Keep in mind its just a cultivator, so power is a little weak, but nice to have for weeding.

I bought the Earthquake MC440 40 cc 4-Cycle Cultivator a few weeks ago from Home Depot. This tool is more like a toy cultivator and a waste of money. Yes, the manual and paperwork says it has the warranty, but the tool did not even meet 5% of my expectations.

I paid $210 at Home Depot. The price will vary depending on where you buy it anywhere from $210 to $269. I chose Home Depot because of two things. One price and two they have a service department.

Take the tines off and put them on in reverse order as described in the book. It will give you a more aggressive dig.

Review of my MC440 cultivator
I bought this cultivator about 4 months ago and have used it twice so far. When I first bought it I had a hard time starting it, however, the second time I used it it started on the second pull -- not too bad after sitting for 3-4 months. The engine is powerful and the unit is easy to move around or carry. The controls are excellent! I looked at several competitor machines and choose this one because of the 4 stroke engine and layout of the handlebar configuration. The only bad things about this cultivator are the tines. If you look at one of the pictures I attached, one of the tines cracked. The company replaced it free of charge. However, I mistakenly gave them the wrong side, so I ended up welding the cracked part. The tine metal is very thin. I believe the issue is related to my rocky soil. If you have just plain dirt, you probably won't experience any problems. I've looked at other manufacturers tines, but wasn't impressed with theirs either. This could be a very good cultivator with heavier duty tines. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase.

I used this for 4 hours on the weekend. There is a engine break in period where there will not be full power. It is great because it should work and last longer than most cultivators of this size. I do have a You tube video of un boxing and using the machine. If you want to just see it in action then got to 1.58 minute on the video. https://youtu.be/nwT2UpKdQYg I did not know about the reversing of the tines maybe the work i am doing will be a lot faster. I am trying to level out my backyard but there is a foot in difference, maybe more. Gas is very good, i filled up once and then after around 4 hours there was still a third left. https://youtu.be/nwT2UpKdQYg

Great little tiller for existing garden areas. If you have much grass or weeds in the area you are tilling it will get entangled in the tines. After initially getting rid it grass or weeds it does a great job of breaking up the soil. Lightweight, easy to use and not too rough on your back or arms.

Fix the STUPID pull handle
Started fine right out of the box. Used it for an hour a couple of days ago, does an okay job for its size. Went to use it a SECOND time last night, pulled the pull handle and the handle broke IN TWO. Obviously CHEAP CHINESE junk when it comes to the pull handle. Returning it to store, will buy a second one and see what happens.

Response from Ardisam, Inc.Jul 27, 2020
Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it. We are sorry to hear that the pull handle has failed. If within Warranty, you would want to call Customer Service at 800-345-6007 option 1, then option 1 for assistance. Typically, this is a wear item, however, often times if you have only had the machine for a couple months, we will replace one under Warranty. So, again, if you haven't returned to store, call Customer Service. Ardiasm
