    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.

    Amazing yard tool
    I bought the MM 55 over five years ago after renting a mantis for two weekends. I have only changed the spark plug and cleaned the filter a couple times and finally had to take it in for service ... but only because of the ethanol eating away at some of the carburetor parts. My yard has that tough Texas black clay, and Boss grinds right through it. A few of my neighbors have enjoyed my purchase also. I am so pleased with this product, that when it came time to fix my Craftsman trimmer, I just ... read more headed to the Stihl dealer and have not regretted it.

    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.

    Easy to start and use.
    The Easy2Start system is great! I purchased the optional wheels and find that the placement of the wheels help me control the depth of cultivation. Without the wheels touching the ground at all I do have trouble controlling the speed, as you squeeze the throttle with your right hand and I am unable to squeeze partially and still maintain enough grip to control the machine. I also wish it wasn't so loud! My husband tells me that is normal and I am too sensitive to noise, haha

    A very suprising Tool!
    My wife talked me into buying this tool and I must admit I was very skeptical at first. The local dealer suggested the wheel attachment. So we made the purchase. I'm so very glad my wife talked me into this and thanks to my local dealer for the Wheel kit. I found the yard Boss to be very easy to start and use with plenty of power.As with my other STILH tools this one is a keeper. If you have small jobs maintaining your yard, the Yard Boss is a very versatile tool for all ready established yards. ... read more I now own almost all of the attachments and am very pleased. I would highly reccomd this for maintaing your yard. Makes maintaing my yard fun and easy.

    Perfect size and power for my application
    I an quite pleased with the performance of the Yard Boss. It starts easy and runs smooth. I have an acre lot so lots of beds to maintain and the Yard Boss is just perfect in size to maneuver tight spots. Wide handles make control of the machine very easy. I have had a Stihl chain saw for several years and it is as dependable today as the day I brought it. Hoping the Yard Boss will live up to the Stihl reputation.
