Transport to garden

How difficult would it be to transport it to my garden without tilling up my lawn?( I am five foot all woman in my 70's.)
Asked by: MomfromMichigan
Not sure if you can do it with your short stature. Can you teenager in the neighborhood to help move it? If you tilt the machine far forward so the tines are off the grass, you can start it, and drive it to your garden - it's just goes really sloooow. Alternatively, If you pull the pins in both wheels to the free-wheel position, then you (or your designated pusher) can push the machine to the garden without turning it on. Put the pins back in the drive spots, and start tilling.

I called tech support and after about 45 minutes on the phone was told they would call me back the next day. They did not. When I called them again they gave me phone #'s for service shops in my area. One of these shops said they were not a service shop for that item and the otjer shop told me it would be at least 2 weeks before they could get to my tiller. I then drove the 80+ miles to a home depot and returned the tiller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, as a tiller, this is a very good purchase for the price. I bought this last month and us... Overall, as a tiller, this is a very good purchase for the price. I bought this last month and used it to till two virgin garden plots: one being a 40 x 30 ft. plot. It performed admirably, only requiring two passes to finely till virgin ground. Very happy with the tilling performance! The only issue I have with this machine, which prevented me from giving it 5 stars, was the quality control in the factory assembly..... 1st: One of the wheels were installed inside out - with the air valve on the interior instead of exterior. This was easily fixable, the wheels come right off and back on with no problem, just flipped the tire and fixed. 2nd: The machine came shipped to me surrounded by two wooden pallets inside of a large cardboard box. The pallets caused the handlebars to get scuffed and scraped, with paint completely missing in a chip on one small area. The foam handle covers have been scratched up as well. It literally looked like it had been used for several years and I would have returned it thinking such, except that everything else was squeaky clean and new. It was just the condition of the handle bars. 3rd: The factory installed spark plug burned out within 30 minutes of use, had to replace it with a better quality spark plug. 4th: Whoever assembled the machine at the factory (it actually was here in the U.S., not China) put the WRONG reverse line on. The reverse line was a good 10 INCHES TOO SHORT! I even compared the model number printed on the line and the model number listed in the replacement parts guide and surprise, surprise - didn't match. Now, I have to wait on the only authorized warranty repair center in my city to have an opening available in order to have it replaced with the correct reverse line. Such a headache, but a minor inconvenience overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best for the buck bought this as a refurbished unit they bought it to remove cane roots and it didnt so they returned it to store.i paid 250 for it in2012 got it home and it wouldnt till unless i forced it.stopped it and looked at the tines they were installed backwards,i turned them around and presto.works like a tiller should done my garden in have the time my front tine used to do.only thing i have had to do is tighten belt pully once in 5 yrs.this thing is a work horse.they had 2 returned units when i got this bet the other 1 was assembled wrong also.so at least 2 people got great deals.just glad they didnt have a good assembly man.so if you get one and it doesnt till good check tine placement.hehe

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed This new tiller was purchased to replace the same model which is 13 years old. I loved the old one so figured I couldn't go wrong with a new one of the same model. I HATE this one. Its awfully pricey to be something I hate. The tines ALWAYS spin. The reverse handle is too bulky and since you have to hold the machine up to reverse, it is very awkward. There are no side shields, even though the photo on manual shows there are and tells how to adjust them for debth. Because no side shields, all the ground soil pushes out the side. And the center tines don't seem to dig at all. Haven't decided if I will return or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love our Yard Machine tiller Our Yard Machine tiller is wonderful, there is no way we could manage a garden this size without it. It is big enough to get the job done and compact enough to be easy to handle.
