Lightweight, powerful and versatile are just a few of the words that describe this new yard care system from STIHL. Using a universal power train, this machine easily changes from a cultivator to other useful tools. This is a must-have for around home.

Summary:
I've used this way more than I thought I would. I've tilled new flower beds and our small 6x20 garden. I got the edger tine for a bit more, like $20. Thats well worth the cost given that it can do another chore. It does a nice job edging once you get a good handle on it. The only draw back is that you can only edge straight down and not at an angle like a dedicated edger can.

Strengths:
Very portable, easy to use, fits up on the wall in my garage.

Weaknesses:
Does not till very deep and does jump around alot. This is more of a small bed tiller. I would never tackle a larger garden with it.

Summary:
If you compare it to all the other tillers in it's class it out works them all. What you look for is which one is bullt the best and this is it, it's a work horse for it's size. Hint to till new beds lean the tool way back and pull it don't push it this will keep the bouncing down.

Strengths:
very powerfull, it quickly cleared the grass to extend my garden and tilled the dirt below. I does every thing you buy a tiller this size for.

Weaknesses:
I haven't found a weakness yet. But if it had one, all the other tillers in its class has it too ie.. doesn't till very deep, bouncing, small tanks, center gap ect. It beat a shovel any time.

Summary:
I would recommend this product to family and friends We compared this tiller to other models and it seemed to be heavier built than other models. Our final decision was between two models the Mantis and the Stihl MM55 yard boss. We like the overall design and how well it performs. Impressive for such a small machine. Make sure you purchase the Stihl gas/oil 6-pack and you get two additional years on warranty.

Strengths:
Great design, handle placement is the best of all models compared to (Mantis, Troybilt, Earthquake, Bolens etc...) Very impressed with how well this machine works in our garden. This mini tiller is well made and easy to use. The wheel kit is an excellent option.

Weaknesses:
We were looking to pay less for a mini tiller however, you get what you pay for. We paid $349.00 with wheel kit.

Summary:
When it runs, it works as advertised...that's when it runs. This is a high maintenance product, for every hour of use it seems I spend 2 hours or more working on it. The carburetor is the big issue, made in China (and it shows. I would not purchase another Stihl product, they're expensive and just not worth the hassle, in my opinion.

Strengths:
Light-Weight

Weaknesses:
Hard starting, noisy, uses a ton of fuel
