I have a medium size garden and purchased the tiller to help cultivate between plants. The tiller worked great the first itme I used it. The second time (this week) I tried to use it, the tiller ran for a few seconds and stopped. It wouldn't restart. I added oil because there was very little oil provided with the unit when I purchased it. I added 10w 30 even though the unit had not ran for the recommended 10 hours of usage the first time.

The tiller is currently not runnning because it blows black spoke when started and seems to be leaking oil. I'm checking to see what I need to do regarding returning the unit or getting it repaired. I would hate to have to pay for repairs when I've just purchased the unit.

The FG110 is very easy to use. It starts easily and is very controllable while tilling. It has a nice slow idle and I really like the handle just above the engine for easy transport to the next tilling location even while it is running.  That same handle is very useful to rest the tiller on when it is turned off and makes it easy to fill the gas tank and take the wheels and drag bar off.  I really like it.  I had a 2-cycle small tiller before and it was a challenge to control while tilling and it was very hard to start.

I used it as soon as I got it home; it worked great, though I had to play with the choke to get it to start for the first time cold. It did a super job on my little veggie garden space, and I'm looking forward to using it on other areas of my yard.

No problem for this machine, it just worked right through it all. It took me less than half the time of my old tiller. It also used half the gas, only 1/2 tank this time around.

My husband had surgery and could not lift, push or pull more than 10 pounds for 6 weeks.  Our garden was already starting to get overgrown with weeds.  This is the first tiller I have ever used because I just can't handle the big one and I could never start the little one, which just died last week when my brother-in-law was using it.  We had our new Honda tiller ready to go in 5 minutes.   It started on the first pull, and even I, a 67 y/o female, am able to control it.  I love that it starts so easily, and it is quieter than most small tillers.  It is also lighter than most 2 cycle mini tillers - 27 vs. 33 pounds - you can just see the quality in this tool.  Even though it cost quite a bit more than the 2-cycle one, we have never been disappointed in any Honda power equipment we have purchased. I expect to get many years of service out of this tiller.

This little unit is so convenient and pleasurable to use it is truly amazing.  It is so precise and easy to control that it is like having a powered hoe.  It also is amazing how it can be used to really dig up the soil to a depth of around 8 inches if you want, thus preparing a seedbed ideal for starting and growing.  It is so precise that one can easily side-dress the row of plants with additional nutrients as they grow, without encroaching too much on their root systems.  As for weeding (small weeds just getting started), it is again AMAZING how it "chews them up" so easily and completely - shredding them into unrecognizable green bits!  It can be run slowly with precision or very fast with destructive power to those weeds in preparation for planting.  It may also be pulled backward (back and forth) easily to really pulverize the soil and whatever is in it - again, like having a "power-hoe".  THIS IS AN AMAZING TOOL FOR THIS EXPERIENCED GARDENER...I WISH I HAD ONE OF THESE YEARS AGO!  I RECOMMEND IT TO ALL SERIOUS GARDENERS.  I GOT THE TIP ABOUT IT FROM A COMMERCIAL GARDENER, WHO USES IT REGULARLY IN HIS SMALL BUT VERY PRODUCTIVE VEGETABLE "Farm" GROWING FOR THE MARKET - HIS ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME!!

I purchased this tiller because those I have used in the past are extremely heavy and difficult to manuever, especially on unlevel ground.

This tiller is so light that it is easy to rotate to go back over a furrow and is easy to "wrestle".  It goes up a hill very well. Past tillers I have used weigh 200+ pounds.

The only dislike I have after an afternoon of tilling is the wheel system.  I left the wheels on (supposed to remove them when tilling)  to push the tiller when lifting it up is easy simply because I have a back issue.  This tiller did not hurt by back to lift but I avoid risking a strain since I have had so many in my 70 years.  Wheels help.  I just wish these were a bit bigger.

Overall a worthwhile tiller to have.  I would buy it again.

The tiller is excellent.  My issue is with the de-thatcher attachment.  It does a good job UNTIL the spring tines start to break off.  This would not be an huge issue if Honda offered replacement tines.  Unfortunately, they don't (or at least I cannot find them) which renders a $200+ attachment useless.  I don't understand how you could sell this attachment and not offer replacement parts; especially for a part so prone to breaking.

Initially, I needed a small tiller to remove grass and condition the soil around trees and the garden. It works well so far. Features are sensible and easy to use. I do have to remove St. Augustine grass that wraps around the blades from time to time, but minor inconvenience compared to doing the tilling by hand. I was concerned about using the stock blades for my purpose; the desired digging tines were half the cost of a new tiller. Although, the stock blades are working well. Works much better than Honda 2 stroke that I purchase about twenty-five years ago. I think I will be happy with using this tiller.

After using the same Mantis tiller for 29 years, we decided it was time for a new one.  The first instinct was to purchase another Mantis, after all we had gotten 29 years out of this one!  Husband said he'd seen a Honda in action and would rather have it.  Assembly was super easy and quick, I did it myself and had it up and running in about  half hour-including reading the owner's manual! I was able to till my 1000 square foot raised bed garden with ease.  The tiller is lightweight but still tills deep and thoroughly.  It cranks with ease on first pull (choke it first for cold crank).  The engine is quieter than my old Mantis and more powerful.  The included wheel assembly makes the trip to/from the garden much easier. The depth guide should prove very useful as well. This is not a full size garden tiller so it will not break up packed soil as well but is an excellent tool for maintaining gardens and beds.  I expect to get as many years of use from this machine as I did from the Mantis it replaced.

My main tiller is a 4 foot wide beast that I tow behind a tractor. It is great so long as nothing, like a shrub or small tree, gets in its way. However, I needed something small and agile that would weave in-between the plants and till the soil between them. My land is Ohio clay, and it had been raining recently, half a dozen steps and my boots were almost too heavy to lift. I knew I wanted a Honda: best engines ever made - period. So I looked at the FG110 and shook my head: 25cc engine, light enough to lift up. This thing was never going to cut it! But for a couple of hundred bucks and the promise I could return it if it failed in its duty - well, what could I lose?

Took it from the box, poured in the supplied tiny bottle of oil and put in regular gas. Pumped the gas through to the carb, flipped the choke and pulled the starter cord. It purred into action. Yup! That's why I buy Honda. Now for the real test: my soaking wet clay covered in 4 inches of weeds. No problem. This mighty mini chewed through with no problem. Once or twice stones got wedged between the tines and the casing and stopped them turning, but it was just a matter of removing the stones with a trowel. Nothing broke, the centrifugal clutch simply slipped, as it was supposed to. After about 30 minutes the tines had yards of weeds wound round them. No problem. Pulled the large split pin out, slid the tines off the driven axis and removed the weeds. Took a few seconds. Tines back on, and off I went again. 

Assuming this equipment lasts as well as other Honda units, then it is exactly what I need for a small holding growing fruit and veg for the family. I am amazed at its power, ease of starting and performance. Best of all, it is really, really  quiet. No howling 2 cycle engine here, just the purr of a well made, well designed 4 cycle Honda engine doing what it is supposed to do.

this is the greatest tiller ever made. it starts the first pull every time, digs through the hardest clay and rocky soil, burns very little fuel and very light weight. i love it, coming from someone who only used a 2 stroke tiller.

however there are a few thing you must do to prevent future failure 

-The oil needs to be changed very frequently (2.7 oz) 

-The air filter is very sensitive, wet down the area to prevent dust.

-Use ethanol free gas, drain the tank and run dry after each season, the carb is also very sensitive to dirty / dirty gas.

This is an excellent small tiller.  I wanted a small tiller that was lightweight enough that I could pick it up and carry it around.  My tomato patch is raised about a foot and I have to pick the tiller up and sit it upon my patch.  This is my second Honda FG110.  I had the previous one for 8 years and it always started without fail (usually on the 2nd or 3rd pull).  I was digging in very hard dirt and stripped some rivets out in the transmission (which I intend to repair when I get time).  The tines have 6 points on them (instead of 4) and this tiller will dig down as much as 6".  It is very economical on gas.  Obviously, I love this tiller or I wouldn't have purchased another one just like it.

Great little machine.

I live in the high desert (more accurately, steppe terrain). It is arid and plant material does not readily breakdown. This creates A LOT of thatch. The optional dethatching attachment worked very well and the optional aerator worked well enough for my kind of soil. I figure the entire set-up will pay for itself within two years (vs landscape crews).

The power from the tiny engine is astounding to me - and nothing I own with an internal combustion engine (lots of stuff including including a $47K pushbutton start Toyota) starts easier. Also, the fuel economy is great (using hi-test methanol-free gasoline). 

It's a little beast and loads of fun! Right up there with my three stage snowblower that warns people to stay back 75'....

Pleased with the mini-tiller so far. The owner's manual says that the motor should be re-jetted for use at high altitude (Monument, Colorado, 7300'). My thought is that it should come from the factory already set up for the markets being served by Honda.The Honda Service Center suggested that I try using the tiller before spending $50 for installation of the new jet. I followed their suggestion -- it seems to be working ok with the factory-installed jet.

As a 67 year old gardener, finding machinery that is easy to use and START is very important. The FG110 is light enough for me to manhandle and usually starts on first or second pull. I have two small criticisms and suggest these as improvements for future production. The icons to show the choke on/off positioning could be more explicit. Also the engine shut off switch on the left handle seems to be too easily knocked into the off position. This causes the engine to shut off when it is not expected to and/or creates a "no start" situation that is puzzling until you remember to look for that switch. Just a brush of the arm can move the switch. Kaizan! Otherwise this is an excellent buy!

I have a 12X25 ft garden.  I got tired of turning the soil by hand and did not want to store a large tiller.  I read reviews and decided to take a chance for $350.  There is nothing to assembly except unfolding the handle, adding oil that is included and adding gas. Tiller is very easy to start. One pull is all that is needed after you prime the gas.  Tiller at first appears to be a little to light. If you hit hard ground it will tend to bounce but if you pull back a little, it will dig in.  You just have to experiment.  Only time will tell how long this will last but I have never had a problem with a Honda motor.

Very good tiller. Starts easily and runs reliably. One problem, though, is the choke. The off position is lever down, choke "flap" up. On mine, the lever has loosened and the choke slips into the on position while running. The vibration of the motor causes the "flap" to drop down over the intake. I plan to take the carb off and see if I can tighten the choke lever.

Was a little skeptical when I bought it as a replacement for my 24" 30-yr old heavier tiller(which finally broke it's transmission...).  I knew I had a good produce as far as the Honda name but just wondered if it could work as hard as the former machine.  After doing the setup as per the instruction book, I started her up and was happy at how quiet it idled.  Starting the tilling process and it seemed to pick up right were the other...stopped.  The ground was a little "damp" in spots but it managed to power right through....never complained and never slowed down.  Was able to reach the same depth as my former (heavier) machine with a little technique.  Book recco's to pull back a little after it digs in and do this back-and-forth which seemed to work well.  Tho it only has a 9" width it is a very willing machine and owing to it's 4 tines it chopped right down through the soil and mulch I had thrown on the garden bed prior to starting.  Is about $50- cheaper than the Mantis but has virtually the same drive and also the same engine. I'm 72 and was able to handle it well, including turns.  Fear not it HAS the power...you just have to learn the technique of tilling with this machine.  Can't wait to cultivate this Spring once things are growing...the narrow width should make it very easy to nail those little weeds that pop up in between the plants.  Get one....you won't be disappointed.  Bought at Home Depot and they have a liberal 30-day return policy if it doesn't measure up for you.  My garden(s) are 8X24 and 8X16 and took approx. 1 hr. to do both.  Now that I know how to maneuver with this beast I think I can shorten that time appreciably this Spring.  Takes up VERY LITTLE ROOM to store btw...a big PLUS for me in my shed.  Now I can simply lift it into it's parking spot for the winter. Takes up only about 1/2 the length of the former machine and about 1/2 the height with the handles folded down...love it.

I was asked, "What would you like as a birthday gift?". I had to think. My brother used to till my garden with a big tiller each spring, a machine I could never have handled. Without any idea that small tillers existed, I wishfully wrote the description of the Honda Tiller...a machine that could dig up the dirt wherever I wanted to plant in the yard, powerful yet one I could handle, that starts easily, not too heavy for me to carry, that would sift up the dirt and allow me to mix compost in with it, so that I could easily plant my bedding plants, bushes, or flower and vegetable seeds. I also wanted it to be a size that would nicely go between rows of growing plant to mulch and remove weeds during the growing season. 

My husband listened and presented me with my first small Honda tiller! I was amazed and overjoyed because I truly didn't know at the time such a tool existed. I was dreaming outside the box when I wrote down my wish. That was about 18 years ago! I used it every year and loaned it out many times. Finally it wore out and as I was planting again this last Spring, and came inside the house with a forlorn face. "I miss my tiller." I thought someone who just celebrated her 69th birthday should be past the "longing for a new tiller" age, but to my surprise that is just what I received ~ a brand new Honda FG110! I enjoy using it so much! I also have the edger that went with the first one, and I hope it will also fit my new tiller machine.

I purchased an FG110 today and promptly put it to use in my garden.  I needed a small tiller to keep the earth turned and weeds under control between rows and this fits the bill perfectly.  After putting the oil in and a tank of gas, priming and choking, the engine started on the 2nd pull with minimal effort.  The ground in the garden was tilled prior to planting with a 3 pt. hitch mounted tiller on my tractor so other than compaction from walking the dirt wasn't too difficult to till.  The Honda made very quick work loosening the top 4" of dirt and chewing up what weeds had sprouted.  I have a large 50 year old Ariens rear tine tiller but the Honda is so much easier to use in this application.  I think with the use I have in mind and proper maintenance this tiller should last for many years.

I've only used this tiller twice, so my review is not based on extensive use.  It is easy to start, much easier than my old mantis.  It usually starts on the first or second pull when it is cold, the first pull after that.  It seems to have good power.  I use it mainly in raised garden beds and it had no problem chewing up the soil.  I did use it to till some very hard soil in one bed and it didn't have all that much of a problem getting through that either.  I've heard good things about Honda engines and I really didn't want a 2-stroke like my mantis, so this fit the bill.  My old mantis wasn't a bad tiller by any means, but years of using gas with ethanol in it has resulted in more than a few repairs.  This tiller can take an ethanol content of up to 10%, but I plan on using non-ethanol gas.  The only thing I don't like about it is the position of the on/off switch.  I seem to hit that switch and turn the tiller off quite often when I grab that handle to move the tiller.  It isn't a big deal, you just have to learn not to hit the switch when grabbing the handle.  So far I like and recommend the product.

(Full disclosure: I am NOT a paid Honda spokesperson.)

At age 67, I decided that my days of spade fork / iron rake chopping were behind me, and thought I’d treat myself to my first tiller.

I did my window shopping online, and was tempted by "beefier-looking" models that were $100 cheaper. And truth be told, I even laughed out loud when I personally scoped out this puppy – it looked like a child’s toy!

Reviews were virtually all positive, but I kept trying to find a reason NOT to buy it – especially considering the price tag. But as already stated here: “You get what you pay for.” Sssooo…

Got it home, cranked it up, and it even SOUNDED like a toy! (Aughhh, what have I done?!)

Then I squeezed the throttle and introduced it to my 10’ X 20’ compacted vegetable garden bed. We went north / south, then east / west on less than a tank of gas. And what remained was a bed of ankle-deep “powder.” So soft and pliable, I had difficulty walking through it.

I’ve used full-sized tillers before, and this is every bit as effective. Even at 29 pounds!!

One of my best investments ever.

Light to carry with one hand. Compact stores easily with or without folding the handle. Tine RPM's are fast and discharges soil from the ground being tilled. Tines remain rigidly aligned and tight (no wobbling). Powerful enough to dig into combination clay, dirt and compost. Will tear through small finger sized tree roots.

Easy handling while tilling, will not stretch out or tire the operator's arms or shoulders. Digs into soil despite the light weight.

My wife and I have had a sizable garden for the past 8 years.  We both have very busy professional lives and, unfortunately, not enough time for many of the things we enjoy.  This was especially true of maintaining our garden.  We simply could not stay ahead of the weeds.  Our frustration had reached a peak and we were considering waiting until after retirement when we would have plenty of time to maintain our garden.  This was not what we really wanted as we have enjoyed the vegetables from our garden year round. Searching on the internet for any other solution rather than giving up the garden, I came across the Honda FG110 mini-tiller.  This tiller, I thought, would be small enough to navigate between rows and easy enough for either my wife or me to handle.  I have always trusted Honda engines and decided that this might be the answer to relieving my frustrations.  I used the tiller for the entire season of 2016.  Anything I might write about this tiller would be an understatement.  It starts easily.  It handles with little effort.  And, most important, it destroys weeds without mercy.  I simply could not be more pleased.  This little, but powerful, tiller has returned the joy of gardening for both my wife and me. We both look forward to the 2017 season already anticipating the results of our labor with so much less effort.

I had been wanting a small tiller to use in my garden area and my husband purchased me a FG110.  Even though it is February, I was able to till up my garden area today and I am so happy with it. Set up was a breeze - just had to tighten up the handles, fill it up with oil and gas and on the second pull it started right up!  It was so easy to use and handled great. My garden area looks great and will be ready for planting come spring time.  I plan on using it in my flower beds next.  We live in an area and have red clay soil which can be a problem to deal with but the FG110 went right through it.  I was amazed at how well it worked up the soil.  Would highly recommend!

The best of the small tillers. This is my second purchase of this model. The first one I gave to my son. I starts with ease, usually on the 2nd pull. A 4-stroke engine so no oil/gas mixture needed. Some descriptions say it can't go very deep, but, I haven't found that to be the case. Of course that depends upon the soil. I previously owned a Mantis which was hard to start and a 2-stroke requiring that oil/gas mix. Had to replace the drive shaft which broke in my slightly rocky soil. No such problems with the Honda. Just a great machine.

I bought this machine because of the wonderful reviews on Home Depot's website.  I cannot believe that such a small machine is so powerful.  My only wish was that the tines it came with were the digging kind.  The ones it came with were difficult to start digging with.  Outside of that I would recommend this machine to anyone with a small garden.  The area that I am working in is 225 square feet and it is perfect for that size.  I am really pleased with the craftsmanship and ease of use of this machine.  I would definitely suggest that you use ear protection because it is a loud little machine.

I purchased the FG100 17 years ago. It was the best little tiller I've ever had! I used it to weed mostly but also to dig up my 4 raised beds every year. It broke up the soil to very fine. One day it just would not start. That being unusual as it always started in one or two pulls. Turns out the poor thing just wore out! After 17 years I could not garden without this little powerhouse. So, my husband purchased me the FG110 and it looks and works just like the old one! When I first purchased the original one from a Home Depot, I noticed a Landscape truck with someone loading up this kind of little tiller. I asked him his opinion of it and he said it was the only kind he would have as it was so durable and great quality. He had workers using them very hard and it would take anything you could throw at it. I was convinced if a pro would use it I had to try one. I am very glad I did and would recommend it to anyone into gardening.

I found myself needing a rototiller again and momentarily thought about renting again from Home Depot as I had done 6 weeks ago.  But then thought, I'm going to have need of a tiller at least two to three times per year so maybe I should look for a rear tine rototiller.  The more I looked at them and the how expensive they were, the more I thought this is overkill.  I was a little concerned about buying a mini tiller because I feared they wouldn't hold up for breaking fresh ground for flower beds and gardens.  However, the more I read the reviews online on the Honda, the more I felt this might be just the answer to my needs.  So I went to Home Depot and purchased on last Saturday.  I unboxed it yesterday and it took all of 5 minutes to get the gas and oil in it and extend the handle bars for use.  It didn't start on the first pull like my Honda mower always does, but it didn't take too many.  I began using on a part of my yard up next to the house to make a flower bed that measures around 3' x 21'.  The ground hadn't been broken since the house was built 25 yrs ago, but this little tiller torn right into and prepared the ground for me.  It is definetely more work that a rear time tiller that does all of the work for you, but no big deal.  Just took a little longer with a little more effort.  Overall, loved it.  The great thing about this small tiller is that it is so versatile and can be used for lots of small projects around the house or just freshening our current beds each year.  I'm very glad I purchased this unit and am confident it will last a long time with it being a Honda.

I just built two 4x8' Cedar raised bed garden boxes made of 2x10" rough-sawn planks.  I spent quite a few hours digging the flat areas in the slope where the boxes went, adding rock for drainage under the planks, and refilling with compost and topsoil.  It was a lot of work in near 100F Missouri heat and I was READY to be finished!  So today I went to use my 2-stroke mini-tiller by another known (but cheaper) maker and for the last time it failed me again.  I finally got sick of working on it.  Enough is enough.  I got online, compared the different 4-stoke mini-tillers that were offered and quickly made my decision.  I haven't owned a Honda since having an ATC90 three-wheeler motorcycle back in about 1980!  It was bought used then and was extremely easy to use and reliable to drag camping/fishing supplies around out in the country as a kid etc.  Remembering that made me think that it was probably a good time to give another Honda a chance - this time a mini-tiller!  I'm glad I did.  I easily had it running five minutes after unpacking it and now have my tilling finished instead of fighting with the other 2-stroke junker that I'm retiring.  This is an EXCELLENT machine.  I can already tell after using it once that it was a good decision to buy it.  Having been a machinist for 24 years and a heavy equipment mechanic before that, I'm a fairly competent judge of mechanical and manufacturing quality.  THIS IS IT.

I needed to weed between flower rows.  From the moment I put it in the garden, I could see the difference.  Lots of power and digging ability. A rock stopped the tines, but it was easily removed.  The machine ran, but the tines stopped.  This evening I cleaned out the garage and washed it down.  I had to start it again to see if it worked.

My wife and I have a flower bed that was let go before we moved into our new house.  We have struggled for two years to keep it clean and free of weeds.  Last year after two days of digging I was thinking to myself I should buy a mini tiller.  This year when my wife started digging again and saying how hard it was I decided that was it and started research on a small tiller.  After about 5 minutes on the google I quickly chose the Honda FG 110.  It was on hand at my local home depot, was priced lower than the Mantis by $100 for the comparable model and it has a Honda engine. Haven't been disapointed with a Honda yet...

Today is day one after filling my tiller with oil and gas and tightening the handles on the tiller. I must say even the packaging was done well with a box large enough to hold the mostly assembled product with thoughtfully placed handles.  It was easy to get out of the box and required less than 5 minutes to get ready to use from box to ground.  There wasn't any tools required to assemble and even though it was not made in the US it wasn't made in China either and that's all I need to know.  I took it into my flower bed and it started on pull 1 the first time and every time there after.  I was amazed at how well it does cleaning out tall pieces of grass in clumps as well as loosening even compact dry soil.  I have now ran almost a tank of gas in it and find this to be one of the most valuable tools in my garden shed!  One comment would be that it is a bit hard to clean out between the tines but thankfully you can tip it on the front protector bar and work on it easily while it sits on a flat surface. Thanks Honda  I hope the quality is as I suspect it to be from a durability standpoint.  I'm looking forward to many uses.

i read all 77 reviews before buying, and did consider Cub Cadet and Echo. Most of the reviews were positive, so I decided that the 30 day return policy was worth the chance. Plus, I did buy the Home Depot Warranty so that I have 5 years of coverage, $60 more. My garden is large, and I have a big rear tine tiller to break it up. Some of my vegetables can be planted far enough apart to run my big tiller down the rows. Others grow up and out, such as the peas, and they need a smaller tiller. This one did the job well, once I figured out how to steer it. It did pull on my back muscles quite a bit, but you have to finesses it when working in close quarters. The motor cranked right up, the cultivator did not stutter, and I was ecstatic with my results and how quickly I could do a big job, one that would have taken 25 hours or more by hand. I know, because that is how I started. This tool, like my tiller, will change the way that I garden for the positive. I have back troubles, and sometimes pass up gardening opportunities because of the after planting gardening maintenance demands. It is a quality product as best I can tell, and the first three hours made a huge impression.

If you are a gardener, a good tiller will save you time and sore muscles. My last tiller was a 2 stroke and lasted close to 2 decades, but was always a challenge to start. It became a maintenance headache and finally failed to start. I decided to go with the Honda due to the 4 stroke engine and the great Honda reputation. I haven't regretted this decision. Not mixing gas and oil is great, as I don't have to have separate gas and gas/oil containers. This engine burns cleaner and is slightly quieter. The best part is that it is better at tilling, works through anything, and doesn't seem to get the tines clogged as much as my previous tiller. The width is perfect for working between plants. I don't use the wheels, as this machine is easy to tote around the yard by hand. If you haven't used a tiller in the garden before, you will find this tiller to be a valuable new tool! My neighbors love to borrow it.

I purchased this tiller for my wife because she is unable to start our rear tined tiller and it is just too big for her to handle.  As always, the Honda engine starts on the first or second pull.  She was able to use this tiller because it does not weigh as much as our rear tined machine and does not throw her around.  My wife was able to till non stop for a little over an hour.  This machine digs like it is much bigger and with the detachable tines you can use it in between rows in your garden.

I bought this Honda FG110 tiller because its the only brand engine I trust after being dissatisfied with the other major brand engine in other outdoor equipment I have owned. The owner's manual is clearly written, well illustrated and covers every detail.

This is my first use of a tiller so I didn't know what to expect. The little engine surprised me with its power which I used to turn over weeds and grass in hard soil over an area of 40'x20'. It had the power to grind through the hard ground and small tree roots without any noticeable slowing of the engine. Being a lightweight tiller, it did bounce around over the grass as it moved forward but the tiller dug in nicely as I pulled it back. There were some stubborn clumps of weeds that I had to concentrate on by going over them several times to dig them out but I was using this tiller for a purpose that really calls for a heavy duty machine.

I accomplished what I set out to do and I was very satisfied with the job this little guy. I believe I selected the right tiller at a very reasonable price.

I have not been able to use this tiller yet.  It was shipped missing a left side tiller tine lock pin.  One of the two left side tines was loose in the box.  I have contacted Home Depot-on-line sales about this and hope to hear from them soon.  My opinion is that whoever placed the tiller in the box for factory shipment did so without the lock pin in place.  It is most unlikely that it fell off in the box and slipped out through a crack.  I tested this with the lock pin on the right side.  Not easy to remove.

I have only used this maybe ten minutes due to ground being to wet. I have a Honda riding mower that I have had for years and this cultivator has the reliable Honda motor. When I saw it I didn't think there was anyway it could dig up ground because of it's size. I was wrong!! I took the wheels off and if you will take the time to read the directions you will see that if you tilt it forward it will dig deeper and tilt it back and it will be more shallow. I recommend a shallow pass the first time or two on you row. It will dig while pulling it backwards or going forward. I found it easy to control. I just wish the accessories weren't so expensive. I really want the dethatcher but just not going to put that kind of money out for one. I watched people use dethatcher on line and it looks like it does a good job. Good machine Honda.

Now that my hand is permanently damaged from a car crash, I can't shovel, pick, or even use a big rototiller in a straight line.  I can't even squeeze the throttle cable on a local rental.  However, I can use the FG110 long enough to get tired for other reasons; it is the easiest rototiller to use (perhaps in existence).  Vibrations don't rip up my hands, the pull start is easy, it is light but not so light as to jump like a rabbit (problem with the light electric model by another company), and because it is so small, I can use it at all kinds of angles and drive it right out of a hole - where I'd be stuck if I had a big unit.  It basically replaces all hand tools for me, then I can follow up with hand tools after the soil is broken up.

Also, being a four stroke Honda, it idles ~3500rpms quietly, and need not be used at full throttle depending on the work you are doing (but quieter at full throttle than most similar equipment)

Change oil more often than they recommend at first, since at 2.7oz it is cheap to do, so that the engine breaks in nicely - it went through quite a bit of metal shavings and turning gray fast, but I change the oil every time I cleaned up the machine, and now the oil is looking pretty good. I found forum entries on the engines dying when almost brand new (almost exclusively) - so I took this preventative measure to break mine in well. 

As just told by a repair shop, if you don't like the pins that hold the tines in place, you can switch them to (#8?) bolts and lock nuts if you don't generally take the tines off, and with "trailer pins" if you clean the tines often.  Also, oil the axle so the tines don't get stuck.

More power?  Only install two of the four tines for the job, either facing in (safe) or facing out (really powerful).

Dust? Be prepared to clean and re-oil the oil-type foam air filter more often than you would expect if you work in dust.  That's a weak point - make certain the cover is snapped completely back into place to avoid dirt getting into the engine by bypassing the air filter.  Be prepared to maintain it daily while breaking new ground.

Great machine, I'd highly recommend it for all small/medium jobs, and even one-time initial cultivation of a big garden, letting it rest and check it periodically - or rent a monster for a day and follow up with this unit.

Optional accessories are prohibitively expensive, so don't buy it thinking you'll get all those additional functions.  However, what comes in the box is plenty.

TheTiller (FAAA 1389405) works well and behaves as I expect from a Honda product.  It was a replacement for the same model (FAAA 1389292) purchased the previous day which was defective - out of the sealed box - as follows:  The Drag bar clevis pin was not in the box, one of the two handlebar knobs and washers was thrown into the box rather than being  attached to its companion bolt.  When filled with fresh gasoline and with oil the tiller started reasonably easily and had a steady idle.  When warmed up it would go to the expected high rpm under zero load but when used to till light soil it continually stalled.  Home Depot provided an immediate replacement.  We opened to box in the store and all components were properly installed.  It worked as expected once oil and gasoline were added.

I hope that this lack of quality control is just a rare example.

Rented a Honda Mini-tiller some years ago and liked it a lot.  Now I have three 6'x6' raised beds and just did not want to hand till.  So, read all the reviews, and then went to Home Depot and purchased an FG110 off the shelf.  Got it home and unboxed it, filled it with the provided oil, and then gassed it up.  Started right up when I remembered to turn the ignition to the on position (duh), and the work was quick and easy.  Worked best for me by making three quick passes, and the whole job didn't take long at all.

I am 68 and in decent shape, and the FG110 is light enough for me to handle easily and to reposition in small spaces and make turns with.  With it's light weight I was surprised at how easily it dug right in and pulverized my raised beds.  I am anxious to now dig in some compost and fertilizer so that we can plant in a few weeks.  Real happy with this purchase.

I bought this product for a small garden (10x15) because I was tired of borrowing the neighbors much larger rear tine tiller which is a great product also but not exactly very maneuverable in a small setting like what I want. I had looked at a few competitors products this one being neck in neck with another one that was sold at a local dealer. They recommended this one over the other unit which I liked and I can totally see why. This thing is very easy to use, much quieter because of the 4 stroke engine and tills very evenly with lots of torque, the attachments you can get for this make it worth the price too. I have put this through a lot of use this summer; prepping a actually fairly large area for grass seed, spreading manure in my garden as well as breaking some new soil to add another row to my garden. It does all of these tasks very well, maintenance is easy on it as well. Cleaning it is a breeze because the tines come off very easily pull the cotter pins and they slide right off. Yes you can go to any big box store and buy one of the less expensive mini tiller for roughly half the price of this one but I guarantee you this; it won't perform as well be as easy to use or some may have some more toys like electric start (which I think they could offer but it starts so easy it's not really needed) but it won't have the quality you get with this Honda. If you're looking for a small easy to use tiller with even an occasional large area to till go for it buy it. You won't be disappointed.

Then slightly less than 1 month into the post warranty period it just stopped working. Have been unable to start ever since. Took it to a local qualified repair service facility - they were unable to repair. They told me I would be better off buying a new one. At $350.00 you would think it would last beyond the warranty period. Do not plan to purchase another.

With much trepidation I purchased the FG110 mini-tiller. I have a small garden 20 x30 and don't have a lot of time to work in it. I have been considering small tillers just for cultivation use as I have a large tractor mounted tiller to work the soil in the spring. I have always felt that Honda mean't quality and was not worried that the FG110 would be shoddy made, it's just that I thought the fast spinning tines of the small tiller would throw dirt everywhere and bounce around making it had to cultivate close to my plants. Boy was I wrong. I am so pleased with the tiller that I wrote this and have never wrote a review before. One thing that I think would be an improvement is to make a rotating assembly for use of either the dept bar or the transport wheels that the operator could easily pull a spring pin and turn.

I usually do not write reviews but this Honda is a tank for its size. I was clearing new ground full of old privet hedge roots and rocks.  I should have used a heavy duty rear tine tiller but could not find one to suit me. Therefore I decided to use my little Honda knowing i would probably screw up the transmission. I cut the roots with an axe but still had a lot of them in the ground.  The Honda eat roots up to 1 inch up.  It would throw out rocks the size of half a brick. I anticipated the transmission going out or the clutch burning up. Neither happened. The engine is small but very powerful and starts every time.  I would not recommend this Honda for what I did, but it just shows the power and the quality of transmission and clutch.  Pay the extra price and get the best little tiller out there.

Hand kept hitting the on/off switch...turning tiller off during operation.  Have to take the wheels off to use.  When operating tiller with the wheels off (as manual states to do)...when you stop, the tiller is not stable and has a tendency to fall over.  To move this piece of equipment, you have to go back to where you started to get the wheels...take them back to where the tiller is to re-install them.  We did like the fact the engine was a 4 cycle & that you could see the fuel level in the tank.  We originally were going to purchase a different tiller, but it was going to take 21 days for it to come in.  The representative of this Honda dealer...Ralph Helm, Inc., in Elgin, IL explained the points of the Honda FG110 and we decided to try it.  What made it even better was Mr. Helm told our representative, Dave to make sure and tell us if we were not happy with the Honda FG110 and we brought it back within five days...they would take it back and order a different tiller for us.  Sad to say...we ended up taking the Honda FG110 back and Mr. Helm stood by his word and took the Honda FG110 back and ordered a different tiller for us.  Ralph Helm, Inc. has been our dealer for a number of years.  We specifically purchase from him for his service...his winter service program...etc... versus making a purchase from a big box store.
