    I purchased the Yard Boss to save myself more pain.
    I was suffered a head & back injury a number of years ago, when I tried to use a regular weed eater it caused me extra pain. While on vacation I found the yard Boss while walking through a store taking a break (stretching my legs). It has been a life saver, not too mention to tiller attachment. Since the wife & I retired and moved to the country I've needed something to help me get a little garden started. The Yard Boss allows me to complete my yard work and gardening without killing myself or ... read more causing me extra pain. Thanks STHIL!!!

    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.

    Small tiller for weeding and defining beds
    I've owned a MM55C for a few years and it's good for weeding beds, enlarging small beds, cutting curves and getting into tight spaces. Pro: Lighweight Removable tines Easy to clean Decent power Starts easily IF you do the proper post season maintenance Versatile - can be run with 2,3 or 4 tines Folds up neatly and fits into most car trunks with ease Con: NEEDS A MUD FLAP! I added one because this unit throws dirt all over your feet at full power without a mud flap. Be SURE to run ... read more the fuel tank dry before storage and avoid gas/ethanol mixtures. Even 10% ethanol in gas will cause the carb on this unit to foul. I replaced the carb and it ran like new. Took the old one apart and it was totally green inside even with the use of Stabil ethanol stabilizer.

    Replaced 3 tools in my shed
    Have had this about a month now. I bought it to replace a string trimmer mower and 2 another brands tillers. Purchased the trimmer head and a cutting blade at the same time. The videos show tilling in the forward direction on You Tube but that is WRONG. You have to pull the tiller back just like the the other brands tillers so it was not a big deal. The best part for me is being able to replace 3 tools taking up space in one package.

    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.

    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
