Comments about MTD PRODUCTS Yard Machines® 158CC Tiller (21A-240M000):

This is a great tiller once you getting it working properly, it's powerful and cuts right through the earth. I had two problems. As another review stated, the throttle spring is not strong enough. For me, this resulted in the tiller shutting off because it was not revving high enough. Also, my unit would not till the soil at first, I had to swith the blades (put the right blades on the left side and left blades on the right side) and this fixed the problem. I double checked the setup instructions and I did assemble the unit correctly as stated, the blades were mislabeled. I would only recommend this tiller if you're prepared to deal with a few problems to get it working properly out of the box.

    Comments about MTD PRODUCTS Yard Machines® 158CC Tiller (21A-240M000):

    This tiller worked very well in our small garden. It worked really well in the portion that had been previosly tilled the year before, It as a bit more of a hang on an tight and lets go situation on the harder packed material but thats to be expected. A little hard work is good for us. Cons were that right out of the box the motor would not run quit right but I found a tougher spring for the rpm controll and that fixed the problem. After ten minutes of running one of the pins that holds the tines to the drive shaft lost its clip and was tilled under. Kind of discouraging after only ten minutes but that to was easily fixed. The spring was the worst problem because someone buying a machine would expect it to run properly right out of the box. All in all a good a machine and works very well which makes the wife happy that she doesnt have to break ground by hand and makes me happy that I don't have to rent a high priced tiller every year. Three years of that would pay for this machine so a very good investment.
