Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tiller I bought it used right away was ok at best carburetors needs adjustments but is not adjustable and some of the safety covers were loose drives a little too fast for tine speed ok for small gardeners

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best tiller I have ever owned! This tiller does an outstanding job! It made the soil preparation a pleasure!
Date published: 2019-05-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the drive to pick it up preassembled! I risked it and purchased a Troy Bilt Mustang 18" through another vendor and both arrived damaged still crated in the box. So I decided to find something locally and found Tractor Supply had this Cub Cadet in stock, I did some YouTubing and watched a few reviews of this machine and I decided to give it a go. After finishing up some of the assembly, tightending up a few bolts that were loose and zip tieing a couple of wires tighter to the frame I fueled it up and put some oil in. It cranked up on first try. This machine very nicely broke into my compacted soil, even finding a few large stones, and after a few passes left that dark earth fluffier than dow feather. I'm very happy with my purchase.
