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 am going to go this route. Use a good Regular, non ethanol added product. Small gas engines are not made to run on any ethanol mix, and you will be cleaning out the carb and fuel system if you use any ethanol blend. Just pay for it, and use a regular, non leaded 100% gasoline product. Or you will wish you did in a couple of years.

18 in. 196cc Gas 4-Cycle Rear-Tine Tiller is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 266.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great running tiller, started right up every pull first time. ran great while tilling up a 10 x 3... great running tiller, started right up every pull first time. ran great while tilling up a 10 x 30 foot garden, only thing is being a powered driven wheel unit and a reverse tine operation, the two created enough resistance to break the tire to rim bead which in turns pulls the valve stem from the tube into the tire, These tires are of a higher quality than most so taking them off the rim to fix the tubes is pretty much out of the question. A tubeless tire would probably fix this problem. tubes and installation could run into a few dollars if this continues to happen. I would recommend this if they have a solution for the tires.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Starting and trying to keep it running is nearly impossible. I pulled and pulled and pulled and pulled and pulled and could not get this unit started. Finally, after trying everything else, I pulled the spark plug. The gapping was way off so I reset the gap...still no luck starting it. Only after injecting some starter fluid did it actually run...for a whole 7 seconds. I repeated this step about 10 times and finally got is running. I let it warm up for about 5 minutes and began tilling...I went about 5 yards and it died. I repeated this process about 20 times...five yards and it would die..over and over and over. I finally gave up for the day and will try it again tomorrow. If I have the same problem tomorrow I will return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful but needs a feature This tiller tore thru the ground with ease. As far as its performance in the dirt goes it makes quick work of whatever you need tilled. Not much assembly is required, but the instructions could be a little more detailed. (It does come with the wrenches you need to assemble it) After I assemble it put oil (included) and gas in it. It started very easy on the 3rd pull. I think my only complaint would be that there is no neutral gear, when you just want to take if from one place to the other. Your options are to either start it up and run it to where you are going (the tines will be turning), or you have to tilt it take the pins out of the wheels, push the wheels in and then reinsert the pin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Didn't have to assemble. They had two models available. Started on first pull. Great traction, great power, and handles well. Only issue is that your right hand has to squeeze the handle to engage forward or reverse. That got me tired after tilling a 20'x60' section. It would be great if it had trigger for both hands. The other downside is that it only has one speed. You can adjust the throttle from turtle to hare, but even so the fastest speed is slower than a brisk walk. The power is superb. My soil was mixture of clay and hard mud with some gravel. Not as strong as the hydraulic rear tine tiller that can till through river rock, but strong enough. 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!... JUST WOW. When i received my tiller, it took me just one look at the box and knew this was the one. Tiller is very easy to assemble. Has 3 height positions, pull start, on/off switch and a nice size gas tank..Separate forward and reverse handles are easy to operate. Keep in mind that tiller is shipped with an oil bottle that MUST be put into the engine case as directed. After putting it together, adding oil and gasoline she was ready to be fired up. She started on the first pull, very impressive. I used this on my back yard to till for grass seed and i was very impressed on how fast we got it done. This is one machine that is a must to have if you have a nice size backyard and need to till from time to time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine! Went together pretty easily. For me, the hardest thing was getting the tiller out of the frame in the box. It was heavier than I thought it would be, but then I have never used one of these before. For me, the best way to get it to the other side of the house was to start it up and let it crawl under it's own power, with the blades lifted. After clearing the yard, my wife wanted to run the tiller. I adjusted the blade depth, showed her the forward/reverse and she took it from there. Other than discovering unknown sprinkler lines and a couple of tree roots it was a great experience. After adding the oil and the gas, and figuring out the controls, it only took a couple of pulls to start. It runs great, and did a great job. So easy, all I had to do was stay hydrated, and my wife did the rest. If you're a weekend warrior like us, You'll love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from backtine tiller For the money this tiller is a champ it cut right thru grass and tall weeds.. tilled the dirt wonderfully. Right now I'm using it daily and have not had a problem . Started with the first pull and buzzed right along so nice to have a back tine! Being older it was really worth the extra money to have the tiller more stable
