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.

How difficult is the assembly?

I am slightly handy and so is my spouse.
Asked by: Mellowcheddar
The assembly for this unit is not very difficult. You should be able to assemble the tiller in less than 30 minutes. You can also go to this link for the Powermate web site to see an assembly video. http://www.powermateoutdoor.com/soil_preparation/PRTT196.htm

18 in. 196cc Gas 4-Cycle Rear-Tine Tiller is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 255.
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.

The reason I’m not giving it a 5 rating is. Cant buy a plow attachment that fits this tiller. Had to modify before I could install plow. Now it’s a 5 star after installing a plow.

After starting it and tilling two feet, one of the wheels completely separated from the bead and was useless. For the price, I would expect a product that lasts more than 20 seconds before breaking. Might work fine for soft ground, but certainly doesn't work well for soil that truly needs to tilling.

Tiller was easy but heavy for 1 person to assemble so make sure you have an extra hand. Machine started right up after I put oil in and ran smooth requiring only two pulls. I trenched the side of my house to drain water away from foundation. This machine with two passes went through existing grass and dug deep easily. The only flaws were a washer on axle was misplaced during manufacturer's assembly so I just went and bought another that was inexpensive and rear tine cover was dented most likely from stocking at store which did not bother me. I was trying to rent a tiller from the store but they were out, this tiller worked as well as their rental.

I give it 0 stars.

We purchased this tiller after returning a high end name brand machine for a refund, because that machine went through shear pins like candy, which has never before happened in this garden in 40 years of tilling the same ground. We have only used it once so far, but this Powermate does beautifully. The ONLY reason I did not give it a 5 star is because it goes a bit slower than I am used to, and it has no speed adjustment. But I can live with that quite well. It only waits to be seen how durable it is, but judging from other reviews, I am confident. Oh, and this was over $200 less expensive than the one it replaced!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great tiller I had a Honda front tiller that I loved. Unfortunately, someone stole it over winter which I found out when getting ready to prep garden. my garden was about 15 × 20 and wall i loved my Honda, the first till of season meant breaking soil with a shovel first.I reviewed many rear tone tiller and decided to go with the Poeermate. WOW, this is a beast. No need to break packed soil it dug down to max depth with ease. It was so easy I decided to expand garden to 30 X 30. Even though this was virgin ground, this beast ate it up.I have used it a couple times for weeding between toes and it starts with a single pull each time.

Then my first run thru previously tiled ground I heard a loud bang, I let go of the clutch handle then depressed it again and while the blades were trying to turn I could hear a lot of grinding from the rear of the machine. I tried it again but as soon as the clutch was engaged same thing. I returned it to the store for a refund and will purchase something else.
