Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful little machine Powerful little machine. Bought it as my old HTC12 tiller went to little tiller heaven. Putting it together was pretty easy. Started on the 2-3 pull. Gas mixture matches my other power tools so that's nice. Plan on using it in my raised beds, 4x1x12 feet. Easier to get into and out of the beds with this tiller than my big one. Dances a little on hard packed clay soil but will do well on soil that's turned over or loosened up first. Haven't used it much as all beds are planted but will get it busy next year.

I want to plant grass will it remove the native grass. So I can plant with new one San Agustin grass? 

Asked by: Mike412
It is more difficult to use a cultivator to till up sod. It will do it, but it will be a lot of work. You would be better off with a front tine or rear tine depending on the size of lawn you are working on. All tillers will not remove grass it will just break up the sod into smaller clumps. You would then need to go back and rake those clumps out.

describe edger attchment

Asked by: blondie2
The Dethatcher Kit is very effective for lifting away the excessive matted layers of thatch that can prevent moisture, oxygen and nutrients from penetrating the soil and can harbor disease and insects. Use in Spring, Summer, and Fall to bring life and color back to your lawn. This is an attachment for the MC43, the Dethatcher Assembly replaces the tines on the tine assembly.

Will this work to break up ground? I don't need a huge area, but it's an area I just don't have the energy or strength to do by hand.

Asked by: bbgail
The MC43 isn't designed to break ground, its meant to cultivate soil is already broken. It may work to break some softer soil, but again that is not it's intended purpose. You would be looking for a tiller.
