Featuring a universal power train, this yard care system accepts a wide range of attachments. Now you can complete a variety of lawn and garden tasks with only one machine to operate and maintain. Cultivate, edge, aerate, dethatch, clean up and more. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature and E = Easy2Start™.

Powered by a STIHL HomeScaper Series™ engine, the STIHL YARD BOSS® has the power to handle tough jobs. Behind all the power, this multi-task tool also features a curved, ergonomic handle design, adding comfort to whatever task your tool is performing. The handles also fold down, making the STIHL YARD BOSS® exceptionally easy to store and transport.

    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.

    Two Thumbs Up!
    Added the MM55 to my "Stihl stable". Am quite discriminating #picky# and this machine exceeds my expectations! Handy, portable, starts easy. Perfect for tight areas, and small jobs needing cultivation. It's "lively" working hard ground but never misses a beat. I use highest available octane gas #93# with Stihl Synthetic. NO probs. Doubling the warranty was a nice touch. Love 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.

    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.

    Just my size
    This works great for my garden and not so huge like my husband's rototiller. My husband however likes to use it too. I just wish that the attachments weren't so expensive.

    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
