  • 3400 RPM motor with 5.75 ft. lbs. gross torque rating
The Powermate tiller uses a gear-drive system that 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 larger areas in less time. The tilling width can be adjusted to 11 in., 16 in. or 21 in. for maximum versatility. The 11 in. front-rotating tines rack up to 8 in. deep into the ground to turn up fresh soil. The 6.5 in. wheels help stabilize the tiller when operating on rough terrain. The front-rotating tines help to move the tiller forward while in operation and the swing tail with drag stake allow for an easy change from till to transport mode. This machine makes easy, comfortable work of any garden task.

Just bought from home depot and it keeps dying while tilling have even tilled 4x12 area

Asked by: Jtaylor
Had this problem also. The gasket that it comes with under the gas cap is cheap. Replace it with a heavier duty one from any parts store and this will fix the problem

turn over but doesn’t run

Purchased last year, stored with no gas in it, new gas this year, oil level is good, will fire with starter fluid but doesn’t run. What do I do next?
Asked by: John
Please try to use a fuel additive or cleaner such as Ethanol Shield. Even if you ran the fuel out of the unit before winter storage, it could have still contained some residual fuel in the lines and carb. Ethanol Shield or a similar product will clean out the lines and carb. If you still have trouble after using the fuel cleaner, please contact Powermate customer service at 1-800-737-2112

11 in. 150cc Gas Front Tine Tiller is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 206.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tiller The tiller took about 30 minutes to assemble, add oil and gas. A set of metric wrenches and sockets make it an easy task. Once assembled it started on the second pull and has started on the first pull since then. The tiller has an impressive engine that has plenty of power. I cut through some good size tree roots when trying it out with no hesitation at all. The wheels are on a frame that is hinged making the frame longer when tilling. This adds to stability and downward force when operating allowing you to till without getting beat to death. A good choice for a medium size garden. The only negative I have seen so far is the gas cap can be a little difficult to get started and screwed on without crossing the threads. Takes a little patience. Other that that its awesome!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got off to a rocky start, but OK once I got it put together. Not sure if this is the fault of the manufacturer, Home Depot, or the shipper, but when I picked it up from HD, it looked like it had fallen out of the truck on the freeway. The box was destroyed and taped back together. The HD employee said he checked it before he taped it and everything was fine. When I got it home, the unit was bent in a few places (I straightened them out), and a plastic piece that helps hold the air filter cover was broken. I would have returned it to the store but it's extremely heavy and awkward to get in and out of the car, so I just went with it. The instructions are not very well written and the parts don't always match the assembly instructions exactly (I think they get parts from different suppliers but always keep the same manual), but I'm handy so I figured it out by process of elimination. Once it was done, it started right up and did a good job on my compacted, dead lawn, chewing up hard dirt, rock, and tree roots. In other words, everything went well once it was assembled; not so much before that.

First the good: Easy assembly, good fit and finish, started with two pulls of the cord. Soil conditions: Top soil that was tilled last season, slightly damp with a dry crust. No rocks or roots. Now the bad: poor design features. The engine spins fast and so do the tines. The drag stake is ineffective regardless of the adjustment. In fact, at the deepest setting, the tip of the stake will hit the gearbox when the tiller is sitting on its wheels. The swinging rear axle is a nice feature, but the geometry is not quite right. Tip the tiller up and you have to reach down with the toe of your foot to give the axle a nudge either forward or reverse. Now probably the worse defect. On untilled ground, the gearbox prevents the tiller from digging down into the dirt or moving forward without great effort on the part of the operator. There is a dead "zone" where the tines do not dig into the soil, so the tiller essentially rests on this spot and the tines just spin. I hope my photos help show this. This machine will beat you up. I'm 6'4",250+ lbs., I cannot imagine someone lighter using this machine.

I was looking for a low priced gas-powered model after trying a 13.5 amp electric that I also bought from Home Depot. But the electric just could not work its way through the tough soil and small rocks in my new garden spot. The tiller took about half an hour to assemble (there's a great Youtube video that shows you how and the written instructions were easy to follow. This thing is powerful for its size. I tilled up a 20x20 space in about one hour. I did find that getting the heavy grass roots out of the way on the first pass was best, then went back over the ground to the full depth. Some idiot buried a bunch of rocks about 6-8 inches below the ground surface but that hardly slowed down this tiller. I'm working on removing the rocks as I find them. Even without the rocks this was some pretty tough soil. I think for the price this was a great buy. It started up on the third pull and since then has started on the first pull every time. The tines and transmission look solidly made and the 150 cc motor is very quiet. I'm good at maintaining small engines and I think this tiller should last for years. TIP: Before you store the tiller away run all of the fuel out of the gas tank. The tank is small enough that it should not take long to do that. It will prevent gunk from building up in the fuel system that is a pain to clean out later. Also, to prevent rust wash all of the dirt, roots and grass off the tines and transmission housing before storing away. It wouldn't hurt to coat the tines in a light coat of petroleum jelly or light oil to seal them from moisture, too. I did use the tiller to re-work some flower beds that had been tilled by hand last year. It cut through that soil like it was hot butter. It also handled small roots with ease. Even if you have a larger garden area I think this tiller would do fine as long as you have the time.
