Limited Uses
I suppose I was expecting too much from this little machine and therefore set myself up for disappointment. I have to say that Tillers Direct was wonderful in filling my order and I am very pleased with their service. However, the product itself is quite another matter. Despite the 40cc engine size, the fact that it is a 4 stroke engine diminishes most of the torque. Small 2-3" stones will constantly jam up the tines and I have to stop to pry them out.

I get maybe 10 feet and have to... more

Was apprehensive on the purchase as i was not familiar with the name. That said I must say that I am more than satisfied. The unit starts easily, and is easy to control. It is a rugged little machine. I would not hesitate recommending this cultivator.

Easy To Use
After getting our new cultivator, I put gas and oil in it and it started on the 2nd pull. My wife loves it because it starts so easily and handles well.

First Project - Clay
Bought the Earthquake to till/cultivate a non-productive corner of the back yard. Out of the box through putting together was easy with slightly above average instructions. Started strong on second pull. We did use a shovel to break up the topsoil, but the Earthquake dug into the chop and underneath clay just fine with quite good power.

It's a little light weight to expect real tilling, but 8-9 inches deep was fairly simple. Also bought edger attachment. First look at that is that it... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Plenty Of Power, 4-cycle Engine No Oilgas Mixing
Cons: Calls For Premium No Ethanol Gas, Edger Attachment Is Too Expensive

Great Purchase
used it yesterday for the first time. It started immediately and ran great for the duration. It took about 15 minutes to get the wheel and drag bar adjustment the way it needed to be, but after it was easy to use and clean. It used a little more gas than I expected, but that may be because it was the first run.

Good Tool
Moving from Florida to Virginia I encountered red clay for the first time. Clearly I needed a tool to till the clay and mix in soil and other organics. Nothing to complain about with the Earthquake MC440.

Follow directions and she starts very easily easy to control and light weight makes it even easier. It mulches to a pretty fine soil so blending in peat moss and other stuff that allows the soil to breath is an easy goal to achieve.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Plenty Of Power, Exceeded Expectations

Great Little Machine.
This is exactly what we were looking for to till around the landscaping. We have solid clay and wanted to till in some of the mulch from prior years.

It works great for small areas like this. It was very easy to put together probably about 10 minutes from taking it out of the box. We are very happy with it.

Earthquake Tiller Shakes It Up
So the big question was whether to go Mantis or try the less publicized Earthquake. I'm very happy with the Earthquake.

Assembly was straightforward and quick. Added the included oil, gassed it up, and fired it up. I have used it for 2 two hour sessions so far and it performed great.

As a bonus, the 4 stroke motor seems quieter than a two stroke. The Earthquake has plenty of power and is set up well for comfortable tilling.

Four hours of operation time is not much of course, but so... more

Earthquake 4 Cycle Tiller
I bought this tiller for my wife. She was wanting a small tiller for the flower garden that would be easy to handle and operate. No one likes having to mix oil and gas for those greasy 2 cycle engines so this was the perfect choice. She loves this tiller. Only one thing to complain about . . . . . the air/fuel mixture was not correct and the tiller was starved for fuel and stalling at high rpm. The adjustment screw has a very unusual head making it difficult to adjust. I used plastic... more
