    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

    As a "broom", this is a great product.
    I purchased the Yard Boss primarily for its broom feature. Having the cultivator blades is an added bonus, but my reason for the purchase was the broom feature. I have a large paving stone patio that was overgrown with moss in the cracks since I was unable to do any maintenance for a year due to an injury. The Yard Boss with the easy start feature works great. My left arm is still less that 100% but I have no trouble starting the Boss. The bristle brush attachment worked very well cleaning up my ... read more patio. So a decided to clear the garage. Once again, the Boss did the job with excellent results. I have yet to try the cultivator, but I bought the Boss expressly for the broom feature.

    My wife loves it
    This is a great cultivator. We've only used it as a cultivator and it is so easy to use that my wife won't let me use it. She loves it and I do too. We have 5 above ground vegetable garden boxes and she's able to lift it in and out without any problems. It starts very easily even after sitting out the winter in our shed through the Minnesota winters with fuel in the tank. I run only non-oxy fuel in it and would never use oxyginated fuel in any 2-stroke.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.
