Easy to use!
Customer review from troybilt.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We are very happy with this tiller. We recently used it to get the ground ready for our pool. It was very easy to use and it worked up the ground nicely. We will be using it to work up our garden next year. I highly recommend this tiller!

Works wonders for my garden!!
Customer review from troybilt.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Must have if you have a garden, I love planting tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, jalapeños and much more year around. It cuts into the ground very easy, doesn’t take long to make your own spot. Very easy to use, very easy to clean. We used ours twice so far those year, wonderful product to have in your shed. Very easy to keep it up, comes with instructions on how to use. It’s compact so it doesn’t take up too much room, we love it and will replace if we need another one.

Customer review from troybilt.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed to develop a new garden so this Troybilt Gas powered cultivator was like a magic lamp...only made for right handed long armed people. I'm a lefty and had some difficulty with the pull start due to the positioning of the cord. Other than that, the process went rather smoothly once I got the hang of it. The machine is rather easy to control. The vibration wasn't excessively intense nor was the sound. The weight of the unit is deceiving. It's mildly heavier than it looks.

Easy to Handle
Customer review from troybilt.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This cultivator worked well digging up our garden that has been dormant for the past three years.  Assembly was easy out of the box.  All you had to do was snap the handle up into place.  It can also be stored with the handle folded down to save some space in a shed.  The wheels on the back of the cultivator helped tremendously because I could tip it back and roll it to where I needed it next. It was easy to maneuver and very lightweight.  Since the ground in my garden had been previously tilled, it worked well to be pushed forward or pulled backward.  I felt that is was still fairly noisy as it ran but I would equate it to less than that of a gas powered lawn mower.  As for starting the cultivator the pull string was a one quick pull to start the engine and than a quick grab of a handle to start the tines and it started right away.  I liked that the speed adjust was easy to get to by the handle and I could keep it slow at the beginning of breaking ground and then speed up as I adjust to that six inch depth.

Does a meticulous job!
Customer review from troybilt.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Let me start off by saying That my husband and I are very particular about the way we do our garden and would only use the best of the best products on it. Now this season we were overcome by weeds and brush that had been laying around on the garden all Fall Winter and Spring. So when we went to try and pull weeds it was a complete no go. As soon as we got this cultivator and began tilling it was night and day in the ease of getting those weeds out and flipping the dirt that was so hard over. I couldn't believe how easy it was to handle this machine as I am a small petite Woman and somewhat weak I guess you would say. But I was able to run it and handle it all on my own and get the job done while my husband stood by and made sure I did everything correctly. We have had one cultivator or tiller is what I called it before and it did OK in comparison to this new cultivator. Our new Cultivator is the Mack daddy of all others and if you have not tried out a newer model then I suggest you do so right away. I love how the blades are bent to really get down in there and flipped the dirt around for you that is pretty cool in my opinion. Now when I say we are very particular about our garden and the tools we use on it I will tell you we clean this cultivator after each use to make sure it will have a long lasting life and be used to the best of its capability. I couldn't be more proud to call this machine my own.

Name we trust
Customer review from troybilt.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Troybuilt is a name we have trusted for years. This cultivator stands up to its name 100%. It was super easy to put together and came with pre-mix as a added bonus! The cultivator was smooth to start, even for me! We used it to turn our ground for the 2020 garden and it saved us hours instead of doing it by hand. I would reccomend this product and brand!

Followed the starting instructions and the tiller is harder to start than it should. Not a good buy for the price. Received this tiller as a Christmas present and living in the North the ground has not been favorable to do any tilling, sometime this spring I will get a chance to see what it can do, hopefully it will till better than how it starts. I have not found any feature that stands out for me over any tiller I have used over the years. This tiller has not come close to meet my expectations and maybe this spring when I put in the garden it may change my mind, right now I do not think it well.
