    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
