Leif R.
Director Of Sales
From The Manufacturer
Mc43 Mini-cultivator
Pound for pound, the MC43 is the most powerful and versatile tool in the garden.

Our 43cc two cycle Viper engine is packs plenty of power to cultivate, aerate, weed, and amend garden soils, or turn compost heaps with ease.

The engine-forward design of the tiller keeps the tines down in the soil, and prevents the cultivator from bouncing. That way, you can work closer to your plants and that means less hand weeding.

Tines are forged, so they stand up to the rocks and roots without... more

Fantastic Cultivator!!!
My Earthquake cultivator is a fantastic machine!!! It replaced a Sears unit that I just gave up on. Hurt my shoulder trying to start it.
The Earthquake on the other hand was easy starting (after reading the instruction booklet). I like the position of the starter rope, easy to reach. This machine is easy to handle, it did the job I wanted to do. (starting my veg. garden). I would recommend the Earthquake MC 43 to anyone interested in buying a mini cultivator.

Nice Cultivator But Tines Broke On First Use.
I saw the reviews and thought I would purchase this cultivator to replace my 14 year old on I bought from Sears. Read all the directions, started up nicely and went to work. Tilled my raised bed vegetable gardens very well. After about getting half way through I noticed it was not working as well when I started.

When I checked out the cultivator I noticed that two of the tines on one of the inner wheels had broken off. I was shocked that this would happen after all the good reviews I read... more
Pros: Price, Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality, Durability, Tines Broke After 1st Use

Does Alot Of Work For A Little Machine
This little machine kicks butt!! it did 400 sq ft of yard/garden on one tank of gas. I used it to regrade my yard which i then reseeded and it tilled the entire flower garden for the wife. It was also cheaper than any other similar model.

Very Disappointed
I had high hopes for this little tiller, but, was very disappointed. I'm a 61 year old woman, hoping I could start this machine without my husbands help. Finally I had to ask him to start it for me. After about 15 pulls it finally started.

And like a lot of the other reviews, was very impressed with the job it did. Later on in the same day was going to use it again. It hasn't cranked since. It has less than 2 hours work on it. Tomorrow, I'm taking it back to the store where I... more
Pros: Price
Cons: Unreliable, Won't Crank

Connie,
We do value our customers. I hope that you will consider calling our customer service at 800-345-6007. We would be more than happy to help you get up and running again. Our techs are very knowledgeable and can usually diagnose the problem over the phone. Indeed, our techs believe, based upon your description, that the engine may not be getting enough RPMs (300+) to engage at the time of starting. We have a very easy and quick fix if that is in fact the problem. I would be happy to send you one of our Hypercoils, which installs easily in place of the original recoil. The Hypercoil has less resistance, making the recoil much easier to pull and supplies the 300+ RPMs from the middle to the end of the pull of the recoil instead of from the beginning to the end of the pull. Please give us a call at 800-345-6007 and we can try and solve your issue.

Solid Little Machine
Haven't used the tiller much but so far its performed up to expectations. Fires right up and runs good. It was a breeze to get set up and ready to go. A few nuts and bolts to get the handle put together and that was essentially it. Put some fuel in it, followed the directions for starting and beat the crap out of it for a half hour.

It does just what i needed it to do. Till up a couple of the wife's flower beds and got our city sized garden (12 x 25 or so) ready for the new season. Its a... more
