  • Great little machine and Attachments

    Apr 13, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy starting, quiet, 4-cycle engine. Excellent results. Tilling is now fun!
    Cons: Cost. Rock jams in tines. Clay takes time and effort to till.

    Summary: Deciding on a mini-tiller for my modest gardens was a back-and-forth process. On the one hand, $300 for a machine that was to be used once a season is a little excessive. Then again, I am not getting any younger and I find that any kind of serious ... read more

    Cons: $50 every year to replace tine shaft with worm wheel ($120 for full transmission)

    Summary: I bought this cultivator/tiller for my wife several years ago and she loves it, but one year ago, it stopped turning the tines. I took it apart and found the worm wheel (861585-HO Honda FG100 Tine Shaft with Worm Wheel) stripped. I replaced it (lucky to ... read more

    Cons: Not as Durable as Hoped, Impractical and Costly to Repair

    Pros: Powerful for it's size, easy to carry, clearly written owner's manual.
    Cons: On/Off switch too easy to hit accidentally while in use, killing the engine unexpectedly.

    Summary: This little tiller chewed through the sod in my yard with very little difficulty, giving me a 20x30 vegetable garden area. I re-tilled the new garden again, to mix in compost. What a breeze! The only difficulty that I encountered was my own fault. I ... read more

    Pros: Dependable engine, quick start, does the job
    Cons: transmission, transmission, transmission cant replace parts must replace lower unit at $126.00 for the part

    Summary: This is actually a fine little tiller with one exception. The transmission repair is totally stupid. My brother and I both own one by chance not choice. I have used mine for about three years with little problem, other than sticks jamming up the tines. ... read more

    Cons: Price at $349... but you get what you pay for

    Summary: After doing many months of research on a small tiller, I was torn between the Mantis, Honda Harmony and a model by Echo. This website helped me out greatly in my selection of my Honda FG110, which is the 2005 version of the Honda FG100 Harmony. I've ... read more

    Summary: I bought this about 3 years ago when I was starting the yard at my new house. I used the tiller very little as I hadn't yet any small beds to till. The tiller starts very easily and is extremely quiet compared to the full-size tillers I rented while ... read more

    Pros: Small, easily started, and lightweight enough to use
    Cons: Small drag bar, removed it to clean the tines and the garden ate it.
