Rated 1 out of 5 by questiionable design poorly engineered I bought my stihl in October of 2013, when it was on sale at my local dealer. last week April of 2014 I first set out to use my MM55 in the garden. My garden is very small, 200 sq. ft. but there are some rocks in it. Most of the rocks are small, but every once in a while there is one about 4 inches. Before I finished my second tank of fuel in a brand new tiller the gears in the head broke when they hit a rock. The customer service told me this tiller is not designed to work in soil where there is rock, which would make it useless to me as all my soil has some rocks. What has to be obvious is that the rock did not break the gear, but rather the engine did. The rock merely stoped the tine from turning. It was the torque of the engine that broke the gear. If the gear can not handle the torque of the engine then there should be a shear pin or someother design feature to protect the gears. I will take this to my dealer on monday and see if it is covered under the warranty, but i'm confident it will occur again as the engineering behind the design is flawed. April 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 headed to the Stihl dealer and have not regretted it. January 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Yard BOSS I purchased my MM 55 from my local dealer that was a demo model and had a wheel kit included for free! This amazing machine makes little work of dirt where you want to cultivate, just line up and push the trigger! I did purchase the weight kit bc due to clay in my soil, the YB wants to jump every now and then. I did have to get it repaired last year for a new carb, but after much use that was expected. My local dealer is very friendly and a top notch guy. The fuel seems to go down quicker than normal, but the machine NEVER lets up. Additionally, I purchased the edger option and the bolo tines, both work great and quickly on off-site landscaping jobs. The folding feature is great, esp. while transporting the tool (even fits in the trunk of a car!). This STIHL power tool makes all other cultivators hide in shame, a true must have for all landscapers/home-owners. January 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for these two women!! I've owned Stihl before and have always been pleased with the products. The ONLY con is that the handle is up TOO high for either of us who are 5'4" and 5"7" tall. I wish it had three or 4 adjustment placements. Other than that we are extremely pleased and know it may outlive both of us. Thanks of a great product. November 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful product. Very versatile product. Starts with ease every time. Very ergonomic design. Rear wheel attachment is a little flimsy but nice to have on it. Wish there were more attachments available. Very compact for storing. Glad I went with this over the Mantis. Seems much more powerful. Attachments easy to swap out. August 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Many chores made easier Love my little 'beast', had it over ten years great for small gardens, use it to dig holes foe trees and shrubs. Use it at Habitat for all kinds of landscaping chores. Makes trenching easy by tilling the soil to shovel out. Been low maintenance and reliable starter. July 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality product Had this for four years. After two it didn't want to run. Bought a new carburetor and put it on in about ten minutes and runs like brand new. I suggest to only use premium non oxygenated fuel. The best part though is the wife can start it easily and I don't even have the easy start June 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Has too wide wheels attachment for smaller gardens. Stihl should have a narrow wheel attachment available as option also. June 4, 2013
