Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just got it- did what they said it would Big job removing a hedgerow and undergrowth- after two hour break in period for the transmission, it saved a lot of time preparing the ground for a lawn. Was easy to control and made it a much easier job. Not sure of the long term, but if it lasts through the jobs I have at hand it'll be well worth the investment to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best little tiller! plenty of power for small jobs I'm a disabled Vet and needed a cultivator to help with my yard work. It's small enough to let me do my work, and powerful enough to help me get it done right. It was a blessing and I don't have to stop in the middle of the job to rest, it really saves time. Great product for the money.

is this a four cycle engine?

Asked by: fraer
This is a 2 Cycle gas engine, if you are looking for a similar model you would be looking for the MC440 our part number is 12802 and this is a four cycle. Thank you!

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.

Brand new all directions. The problem is the pull cord, which does not pull like a lawnmower. The cord 'chunks' out 3 inches at a time. Nothing I do will make the cord pull out in a smooth, swift action. I managed to get it going once.Help.
