Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very useful if you can't crank it This thing is horrible to crank! I can usually start any mower, weedeater, tiller.. my hands are blistered from trying to start this thing. My husband is pretty strong and still takes him a few min. to get it going. I've tried for an hour stright. So it's pretty much garbage to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cultivator It is probally a good product if you have a garden spot that has already beed tilled before. Our ground in so hard it wouldnt till it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Be Easier! Replaced an electric cultivator with this one and am sure glad I did. Took five minutes to attach handles and start on my garden. Started right up on the fifth pull. The light weight makes it so easy to go up and down and between rows. So glad I purchased this!

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.
