Nice machine !!!!
If you have more than a half acre to 2, then this tiller is for you. It has ample power to till soil that has not been tilled in 30 years, I completly tilled under 3/4 acre in 2 days!!!

Craftsman Walk Behind Tiller

It is what I thought from seeing other people who had a walk behind tiller. It tills a wider path than my front tine tiller and it is a lot easier on the back.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Fast and Sure

Use this tiller in a 30 foot by 25 foot garden. It was used for the initial break up of previously undisturbed ground and handled the job like a champ. Now that the area has been tilled and the soil loosened, it really walks right through the job. It starts on the first pull, if you follow the instructions for proper starting. That is a great change from some other pull-start equipment used in the past.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Does what it says.

Nice tiller, easy set up, started first time, easy pins to engage or disengage drive. I was able to till 7 inches, the only thing that may be an improvement if the tine's move faster however you would not want that in rocky soil. Did 1,100 square feet in less than 2 hours.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Mediocre Quality

A Craftsman tiller that I bought in the early 1990s was a real horse (9 HP and 21-inch tines). I tilled and cultivated a 30' x 60' garden during the growing seasons for 20 years. I liked it so much I paid $400 to get it fixed when some gears failed. It died after couple of more years. I wanted another one just like it. Unfortunately, NOT! I bought my present tiller two years ago (Model: 917-299060), which is very similar to the one above. I first used it last year. It now has 10 or 12 hours on it. It is ok, but does not have near the power or the heavy tines of the first one. Today, when I was tilling my garden, I was about 3/4ths done, when the bracket that holds the idle pulley snapped. Of course it is out of warranty! When I ordered one from Sears parts, I found the part they are selling is not the original. The cost was $16.12 (reasonable), but shipping was $9.00, and Sears charged sales tax on SHIPPING? No wonder Sears is closing stores!

2208cc tiller

I bought the tiller online and picked it up at the store the middle of March. I have used it three times. the tiller did a great job tearing up the sod. the big problem is that I was just about finished tilling the third time and heard a strange noise coming rom under the belt cover. I removed the cover and found that the one v-belt was severely frayed and about to tear completely. To me that seemed a little too soon for a belt to tear. I have ordered a new belt and will install it as soon as it arrives. Hopefully it will last more than a week. If it doesn't the tiller will go back. I'm hoping that it was just a defective belt.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Tiller

The tiller works great. I bought three other different tiller brands before this one, from do it yourself stores. I took them all back. The wheels have easy to remove pins in them that puts it in a freewheel mode to move around the yard or you can lift up on the handles and and drive it. It has a reverse that is great. I recommend to wash this tiller after use including the tines and let it dry. Spray the entire unit down with WD-40. The engine, inside the pull cord housing, every where you can. This will prevent rust and help keep it in working order. When you let it dry, pull engine starting rope all the way out and tie to the handles so the rope will dry and not rot from being wet. If you store it let it run till there is no gas in it. Change the oil after it has been stored for a season. Mine is two years old and looks brand new. It is worth the price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
