yardmax tiller
Tiller assembly - flimsy throttle - not easy to fill oil - need flexible tuble or funnel - machine would not start after over 200 pulls tried everything to get to start. Called support and they said to disconnect oil sensor - picture below - yellow - wait 30 minutes and keep the black connected. Why put a sensor on that does not work?? Will wait to see if that works. Not happy with purchasing a new unit not to have it start - will write another review if we ever get it started. Also was told need only fill one oil reservoir - they run together - inside one is difficult to reach. Hope this helps others with this situation.

    BEST TILLER EVER
    I have used Rear Tines Tillers since 1977 and the YT4565 YardMax is the best home tiller. Smooth. Easy to use. Multi Directional throttle. I really like it.

      Very nice tiller
      I bought this from Home Depot online and picked it up at the store. I went home and put it together easy enough. Oil comes seperate from engine and many people complained about the trouble if putting oil into the engine. I sumply used my flexible funnel, no problem. These funnels can be bought cheaply for about $2.00. Ive tilked my garden twice with it and used it to till up some sod for a couple of flower beds. It made short work out of them both. I also like when i till it doesn’t leave a strip-every but gets tilled.

        First of all, I recommend this tiller IF you're capable and comfortable of possibly having to do some wrenching (is there anyone who ISN'T?) Picked this up from HD 5/18/19 with the help of a friend with a truck. Unboxed and assembled. I didn't have a funnel with a flexible tube so I proceeded to remove the front bumper so I could add oil. To remove the bumper, you have to remove the weights- mine were already loose. Once removed I noticed cuts on what I will call the main lower frame that were jagged as if cut with an oxy acetylene torch. Won't effect use so I ignored (mainly because returning this 200 lb beast would be a PIA.) The tiller looked brand new with nice paint so my next observation was what's with these weights? Salvaged from a used return? Not clean like one would expect from new, and one of the weights is cracked where the bolt feeds through. At that point I WOULD have returned the tiller and spent the extra $350 for the Cub Cadet (as I was just gifted a brand new XT1 LT46), but as I mentioned, a PIA for me to return. Started right up and took for a test 'drive'. It's a tiller and it performed like I would expect from any rear tine tiller. Eventually (a few hours) the tiller drive became intermittent- to the point where I couldn't get it to move. Pushed it into the garage and removed the side plate covering the clutch and belt assembly Seriously? The main pulley attached to the crankshaft has 2 set screws- neither was tightened down correctly due to a poor tap job on the holes on the pulley. The pulley had slid outwards. Fixed that and put back together- mistake! Had to tear apart again. Turns out the clutch control cable which is held in place by a bracket and 2 screws weren't tightened down enough to keep the cable in place. Once all that was taken care of, with the exception of the occasional difficult shifting (not too bad at low speed), I have been able to get near 8 hours of heavy tilling done. At which time I noticed the tiller wasn't running as fast as in the beginning. Checked it out and sure enough, the screw holding the throttle cable to the carb was loose. Readjusted and everything seems to be running fine. My main initial purpose for buying a tiller was to fill in a 80' long X10' wide X5' deep drainage ditch by tilling down the berms and filling the ditch in. A tractor would have been the right and easiest way to do it, but to to CC&R's I opted for tilling a bit at a time vs getting permission through application to a design committee. So far, the tiller has managed to hold up for the first 30'. Conclusion: I'd rather have bought the Cub Cadet after dealing with the poor assembly work and the 4 or 5 hours of my time having to correct (though, once you KNOW, it should only take an hour or so). Unfortunately, the YardMax leaves a bad taste of the unknown in my mouth. What might be next and how long will this thing hold up?

          This is the first tiller I have ever purchased and used. We have an acre of property that was not well maintained by the previous owner who let the grass die and weeds take over. I researched the type of tiller and features needed to tackle my situation and decided on this one. It was within my price point and was easy to assemble. It started on the 4th pull and has done everything I had hoped for. I read other reviews that didn't like the oil fill location but with a flexible funnel I had no problem. While using it I found that throttle control was key to getting it to shift easy and not force it into forward or reverse. It is a little quirky going from neutral to reverse otherwise I would give it 5 stars. It has powered through hard packed soil, small rocks and roots and only stalled a few times. I am very happy with my purchase. Time to get back to work.

          For the money, you can’t beat this tiller. The dual rotating tillers enabled me to till through thick grass in rear and lighter dirt in front. I used it for preping mulch beds and grass soil prep. I did not provide it 5 stars, because the gears can be tricky, the transportation speeds are slow, and the throttle is cheap. Other reviews made me aware of these issues when purchasing. Giving the option I would make the same choice again and buy this tiller.

          So far I have about 4 hours (coming up on first oil change at 5 hour mark) using this tiller and overall am pretty pleased with the experience so far. I have used cheap front tine Masport tillers in the past, as well as a large and expensive BCS multi-speed fancy tiller and this one fits pretty squarely in the middle. I was looking for an inexpensive rear-tine tiller that had forward and reverse, as well as forward and counter-rotating tines and this was the only model I found that offered these features at this price point. Pros: Forward and reverse transport gears Counter rotating tine, or forward rotating tine self propelled tilling option Depth stake to adjust tilling depth Powerful and easy to start engine (don't even have to use the choke to start most of the time) Cons (all pretty minor): Clutch adjustment was loose out of the box and would slip in hard soil. It was easily adjusted using the manual and the barrel adjuster. Handlebar height adjustment screw is a bit finicky and tightening it down enough to hold tight rubs the paint off the adjustment slot, also the adjuster knob fell off on first use and is now long gone. Transmission is a bit tricky to shift like any other tiller at this price point and the shifter bar is a bit flimsy so it bends if you try to force it. The trick is to just roll it a bit forward or back (depending on what gears you can get into) and try again, if it doesn't go into gear easily don't force it, just roll it forward or back until it goes in easily. Engine speed adjuster is pretty cheap and either wobbles a bit, or if you tighten it enough to not wobble you won't be able to adjust the engine speed. I might try lubing the cable a bit to help, but its a pretty cheap little plastic adjuster so it probably won't make much difference. The oil filler on the front of the engine is hard to get to, make sure you have a funnel with a hose or a long thin funnel to add oil. The oil filler on the back of the engine is basically unreachable but both oil fillers go to the same reservoir (pay no heed to other confused reviewers that claim you have to fill both since they go to the same place). Briggs and Stratton added 2 fillers since this engine is used on lots of applications where one or the other may be blocked which is confusing some people. I haven't done an oil change yet (first change in 1 more hour according to engine manual) but I'm not looking forward to figuring out how to get the old oil drained out, I may need to use a siphon pump. Overall the tiller has been very good with just a couple small fit and finish issues (bar height adjuster, engine speed adjuster) and a difficult to get to oil filler. If those small issues were resolved I would give it 5 stars, but it would probably also increase the cost. Given the features, price, and the fact that it has been powerful and reliable and is no worse for the wear after 4 hours of tilling in non-ideal conditions I definitely recommend it.

            Awesome tiller. Easy to use & does an excellent job. Turned the soul into the finest dirt. I’m 68 & had no issues at sing it. (Although I have no plans on using it) but had to try. My husband & brother in law will do that work. For sure recommend this tiller.

                A very good tiller
                This is a well built and heavy piece of equipment. I appreciate it's ability to transport without the tines moving, I have used it on two different pieces of raw ground. The first ground was raw with heavily compacted soil. This tiler had great difficulty breaking up the ground and I was constantly stopping to unbind it from the ground or to remove a rock. The rocks I understand but the rest of the times was frustrating. I ran the tiller across the ground 6 times before it was sufficiently cultivated. The next area was raw but the ground was less compacted. The tiller performed well and it took a single pass for the ground to be ready for additions. I took the 1 star off because it had such difficulty with the deeply compacted soil (animals were kept in this area before).

                    Heavy well built. Used a youtube to assemble which was easy. The front plate is like at a 30 degree angle from the mfg. Should be parallel. If you get it in soft ground it will pull you with it. Doesn't seem to be a way to gear down that can be a workout. Since you can't spin it you must forward/reverse constantly guess that's just a rear tine. Sent a question via email to CS and it said 48 hour response time. This was over a week ago and still no response. It does seem to be durable. No gear issues yet as is commonly mentioned for this product. Even the youtube guy gave a tutorial on how to deal with such issues.

                      This tiller is awesome! Easy to put together, breaks the ground up and leaves a beautiful smooth bed of dirt to plant seeds or anything that one wants. I would definitely recommend. I love that I can move this tiller without having tines moving.

                            Biggest Joke Since A Clown Sliced Bread!
                            After much research online, I'd come to the conclusion this machine was a good value, and would do the job I needed done, with ease.... My conclusions were sadly mistaken. I'll explain how- Pick up at store was ok, got home ok, went to put it together noticed some major issues. Mostly, the oil fill cap on front of engine is partially covered over and inaccessible due to the drive belt cover not being fitted on correctly at factory. A few other things seemed less than precision, but for the price, I moved forward. The start up went just fine, and initially in forward and reverse it worked ok. ...Then came the work and with it the major trouble.... the ground I have to work is not hard, in fact half rich soil, half clay, but does have some dips and bumps which this thing was going to help me level out easier. This is where I found out that if the machine tilts more than a 10 degree angle while running, it will kill the engine. So I moved over to some flatter ground. I went to pivot the tiller on the first turn, and the drive belt popped off, so after removing cover, put back on, and noted that there is nothing to assist the belt in staying on the pulleys at all, there is practically no groove, or guides. so belt continued to pop off while just starting and stopping in a straight line... which was quite annoying.... still being the glutton for abuse I am I kept at it, giving it a fair chance, about the 5th time the belt got put back on, I went to move forward with tines engaged,,, and the machine SHOT forward about 8 feet. The force and violence with which it went forward was so powerful it left me standing there with a handful of foam hand wrap, which had ripped off. Now putting it into forward with no tines, it moved about 1foot per second on open ground,,,, i put it in middle of front yard just to make sure this was how it was going to act,,, put it in forward tines and engaged, once again it shot forward like a cannonball... I went over, put it in fwd no tines and took it on the slow crawl back to my trailer, and promptly returned it to home depot. I can say nothing positive of the purchase at all, and recommend you try your luck elsewhere if your shopping for a new tiller, because this one is a 100% joke!
