Honda FG-110 tiller

Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:This tiller has held up exceedingly well and has exceeded my expectations.  

Cons:There is nothing about this tiller that I dislike.

The Bottom Line: After seven years of experience with the FG-110 tiller, I whole heartedly recommend it for home use.


I purchased my Honda FG 110 tiller new in 2005 when living in Houston, TX.  I used it briefly there before taking it with me to Colorado where I used it extensively to dig holes for planting trees and prepare soil for a large new garden.  The "soil" was mostly shale, so I had to loosen the shale and then mix in soil amendment.  This was hard on my tiller, but it never let me down.  If it failed to start on the first pull or started to lose power, I knew that either the air filter was getting clogged and needed cleaning or I was low on fuel.  Even operating at 7,500 feet elevation didn't slow it down.  Because I was digging holes so often, I bought a set of digging tines.  These are not cheap, but they work well.  I wore out one set and bought another set.  After five years of use in Colorado, we moved to Missouri where the soil is filled with rocks. Again, this tiller chewed through the hard clay and spit out the rocks. Sometimes, a rock will get caught between the tines and the sheet metal top shield or the transmission housing.  When this happens, just shut off the engine, tilt the tiller back and pry out the rock. Once the rock is out, one gentle pull of the rope and it is going again. After more than seven years of hard use, today, I hit a buried concrete slab which took out the transmission.  My first thought was that if I had totally ruined the tiller, I had gotten more than my money's worth.  But, I went to Epinions.com and other online websites to research my options.  After much reading about other tillers like the Mantis and Stihl, I have decided to replace the Honda's transmission and keep this little gem going; it is way too good to scrap, and a new transmission is only $85.00.  If I were forced to buy a new tiller, it would be another FG-100.
