Top Customer Reviews
I had previously had my new garden plot broken up, but a few passes back and forth had it looking like a powder puff...smooth, no clods, and really ready for planting.
All in all, I am pleased with my choice of tiller, even though it was a bit more expensive than some others I could have bought.
1.) Honda GX engine lives up to the hype. Very easy to start, quiet, and fuel efficient.
2.) Tills already cultivated soil into fine powder.
3.) Reverse option is a great feature.
4.) Perfect size for fitting between rows, but still big enough to tackle large jobs.
1.) A bit too light for easily busting new sod (but I knew that before I bought it). Just a word of warning. It can be done, but takes time.
The trick to using this machine, I got from another person's review - run the tiller at low throttle, especially when first breaking new ground. Even after the ground is tilled it still needs to be run at low throttle; otherwise, it will take off faster than you can run!
The free delivery I got through Amazon was really nice, and the tiller came on a pallet almost completely assembled. It even came with the required motor oil.
I was amazed that it started on the first pull, and the engine is the best Honda makes.
I noticed that the transmission oil was starting to overflow from under the filler cap a little, but I'm not sure if there is a real problem or not.
The tiller is a forward rotating tine model. It works great on already tilled soil. On soil that has not been tilled, it is hard-pressed to breakup even the surface. I felt I was mislead by the reviews on the Amazon page. I would not recommend this tiller for anything other than already tilled seed-beds. If I had to do over I would not buy a tiller with forward rotating tines.
The Honda motor runs great,as usual..Starts first pull every time..
Be advise to follow the proper procedure with tilling as trying to do too much at one pass will cause you to loose control, albeit once you have started correctly this machine prepares the ground fabulously and justifies it elevated price.
I suggest while assembling to apply anti-seize to bolts that you will disassemble in the future for ease but this is your choice as the manufacture does not suggest this.
Starts easily with one or two pulls
Fluffs the soil to a powder like consistency
Once the soil is softened, the tiller is operable with one hand
The only drawback that I have noted so far is that the wheels are spaced wider than the tilling width. As noted by a previous reviewer, this leads to the tiller listing to one side when making the next pass as the wheel traveling over the newly tilled soil will sink in.
Overall, a great machine for the small to medium sized garden.
