Rated 5 out of 5 by Love its compact design yet big enough to do the job. Being a heavy equipment operator,this did the job. Exceeded my expectation. April 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 March 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 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. September 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Only for tilling potting loose soil Very dissatisfied!!! Have owned Echo and Mantis cultivators and both are hands down better than this one. No power and not near enough RPM to work. Fine for little old ladies, but using it to work on real jobs is not practical. My echo and mantis were awesome. this one just bogs and goes way too slow!!! had to flip handles over to try to correct weight distribution and gain some weight on the tines and get it to try to helped.... even my wife agreed it was better, but still a waste of time. Sorry, had high hopes for this one and was disappointed! July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Suprisingly Powerful and Effective I bought the Yard Boss with the cultivator head and have been delighted at it's effectiveness. One never knows with combination tools like this, but then I've come to trust Sthil equipment. We have several planting beds at a new build home and the soil is all over the place...clay, compost, logs, rocks and this piece of equipment took it all. Sure, you have to pick out rocks, but I used it to mix the soil and compost and rotted wood and got a great mix as far down as 8 to 10 inches. Easy to use. Powerful. Great buy. July 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very versatile I purchased MM 55 C-E with the power broom to remove rocks from my lawn after plowing snow all winter. It works perfectly. When I have it out people stop in and want to hire me to sweep their lawns. June 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by You need this powerful versitile tool easy starts every time! simple to change to options, used for tilling small gardens and flower beds. took a bit to get to know the machine and found the going in reverse gets better control and lessens jumpinghave power sweeper attachment and used to clear snow from drive way and stones in grass from a pile of landscaping rock . Excellent results and started no problems in extreme cold weather.Just bought the lawn dethatcher and was shocked at how effective this was!Excellent tool to have and I recommend itlightweight and good size to making it easy to transport and hang out the way in garage but east to assess as I am using in in all four seasonsCons: small gas tank and drinks a lot of fuel. expensive attachments..but quality costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The size and power is excellent. The Yard Boss has been an excellent addition to our Stihl tool collection. The easy start feature is very worthwhile. I like the size, power and ease of operation. Very satisfied with the Yard Boss and the edger attachment. June 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Small Garden Tiller The Yard Boss is perfect for small garden and flower bed preparation in spring. I like the light weight but powerful performance. May 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Horse Power and Weight It is definitely light weight and easy to use but has difficulties cutting threw grass grown areas. I should invest in the weight add-on for this model. Compared to a Mantis Tiller.......I should've bought the top-of-the-line Mantis. Just better. period. May 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excels in the light work, lacking a bit in power for the heavier tasks I have used and abused this tool for about 5 years now. In our previously tilled garden as a cultivator it is quick and effortless. Moving stamp sand out of our lawn after the snow melts, it does very well up to a point where it lacks a bit in power to push the heavier stuff. Using the brush on the sidewalk takes a bit of finesse to balance down pressure to the forward movement. The wheel option helps tremendously with this.Out on the trails is where I really abuse this machine. I use it to bench cut mountain bike trails in the sides of hills. Its light weight and folding design makes it easy to carry out in the woods. It saves a lot of time and back strain opposed to digging with a pulaski. Note: it does not play well with larger (fist size) rocks so I avoid those types of soils.I would like to see a bit more power on the unit and maybe a heavy duty string trimmer attachment. On the wheel attachment, wider pneumatic tires would help. February 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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. July 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect size and power for my application I an quite pleased with the performance of the Yard Boss. It starts easy and runs smooth. I have an acre lot so lots of beds to maintain and the Yard Boss is just perfect in size to maneuver tight spots. Wide handles make control of the machine very easy.I have had a Stihl chain saw for several years and it is as dependable today as the day I brought it. Hoping the Yard Boss will live up to the Stihl reputation. July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The yard boss cultivator is a game changer for our garden. We bought this cultivator to help minimize weeding time between the rows and plants in our garden. It works so well it may very well replace our large rear tine tiller for spring tilling. Wish we bought it sooner! July 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Narrow wheel kit for cultivator Adding to my review. A narrow wheel kit would work for smaller gardens. It would work better with the edger that I have. June 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome machine Got this for the rototiller and thatcher ability. Works great for both. Love the quick easy start. May 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Artificial Turf Supply Highly Recommends for Artificial Turf Installations. Artificial Turf Supply recommends using the Stihl MM55-C-E Yard Boss for infilling, brushing and general maintenance of your artificial grass lawn. Using the Stihl Yard Boss can quickly clean up the artificial grass area and help agitate the blades of artificial grass allowing the grass to stand-up better and look more life-like. Thanks Stihl!
