    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.

    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. ... read more Powerful. Great buy.

    MM 55 C-E Yard Boss
    Fantastic versatility with the opportunity to self-manage the depth of cultivation. I use this equipment in the rose bed as well as for preparation of my spring gardening needs and the final winter preps on my soil after gleaning has taken place. Many of the home owners in this neighborhood have similar type equipment, but I noticed my Stihl starts easier, is more fuel efficient and runs quieter.

    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!!!

    I purchased a Stihl Blower and string trimmer about 6 years ago and when tilling garden with the really big Troy Bilt I decided I needed something a little smaller to get around the plants and in some beds around the house. I purchased this unit along with several different attachments for it and it is the best piece of lawn and garden equipment I have ever owned. I use it all the time and it has never failed to start or run, is easy to use and maneuver around in tight areas and around small ... read more plants. I have always used Stihl synthetic 2 cycle in it since new. I recommend this tiller to everyone.

    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.
