    Just what I expected from STIHL
    Picked up my tiller today and put it straight to work. I love this tool. Keep in mind it's not for huge areas. For what it's built for it does an outstanding job. I was very surprised at how much power it has. It doesn't bog down at all and I was working in some hard dirt with lots of roots. It doesn't want to jump all around like other tillers. Keep the gas can close by though because the tank is small. I will not buy anything but STIHL from here on out. I highly recommend it.

    Glad I bought it.
    I bought the MM 55 Stihl Yard Boss several years ago. It works very well as a cultivator and as an edger for the lawn. It works reasonably well as a tiller in areas where my large rear-tine tiller won't reach, although it takes some work to get it into hard, compacted soil. The only problem I have is that the transmission assembly tends to twist some in relation to the head. I have tried tightening it, but to no avail. This is not a serious problem, but it is an annoyance.

    Well crafted and durable
    Very well crafted tool. I love the light weight and maneuver ability. A little pricey but would be fine if it had the option of accessories as a base price. I had to order the heavier tines for what I wanted. Stihl was timely with getting the out of stock product to me. My dad trusted stihl and I do too.

    Just what I needed!
    I bought the yard boss to till up some bare spots in the yard to plant grass. I was skeptical that it would have enough power and weight to get the job done. But with the standard tines it was able to do what I needed it to do. I was pleasantly surprised with the Yard Boss and what it can do. Also bought the edging attachment which worked well for flower beds. Almost forgot that it works well for weeding the garden.

    Excellent on my mulch pile of leaves and grass clipping
    Light weight and easy to wheel around with the wheel kit. Great setup and delivery by Hingham Lumber. I also purchased the Bollo tines which were installed. The machine was easy to start with the easy start system. At first I thought the tine revolutions were slow when free wheeling but it powered through my compost pile, shredding the materials into fine pieces. I would recommend it.

    great for small gardens
    the yard boss is a life saver for weeding your gardens, at first I did not like the pick tines that came with it, so I upgraded to the bo lo tines they work much better in clay soil, not saying that the pick tines are junk but bo lo tines work better for me pick tines will dig ok if I pull the tiller back ward to make it dig in , all jokes aside it is a great small tiller for a flower bed or small garden
