Old Garden Rates Honda Fg 110 Best Mini-tiller
I've gardened for over 40 years. I was spoiled on a big Troy Bilt (one that was made in N.Y.) But as I grew older my garden grew smaller and I need a need a tiller I could lift and maneuver in tight spots. I check out every mini-tiller/cultivator sold and settled on Honda FG110. What a great decision.

It is small and easy to turn and pull backwards to mound your soil plus it has bolo tines, like my old Troy. Bolo tines break ground better than straight tines of a Mantis. There's a reason... more

Backyard Digging.
This is a replacement for a unit years old.
It is still running and is owned by a Honda mechanic and friend who is happy.

"I like your company. Your service is good. Your web site contains good and timely reminders as well as help. Note. Your own records should be the most helpful. How long has a customer done business with you? Are you the go to for a customer? How much has a customer spent and what type equipment has a customer tended to buy. I believe if you check, you might discover that I first purchased a generator. At least I remember that it came from you. I will say it was an impulse decision, but I keep coming back."

Right Size
goes in between rows easily, great for getting rid of unwanted grass and weeds. i plant with plenty of space between plants(30 - 36 in) . every 2 weeks spend about an hour walking this thing in between rows and between plants. lot easier than howing or pulling to get rid of weeds and grass . .... doesn't like this hard red carolina clay , but it does get through it . just take your time and let it do the work...have NO NEGATIVES SO FAR... all posotive !!

Want To Have More Time For Fishing?
What took hours to weed i can do my 50 ft x 100 ft in about 30 minutes, Only work around the plants by hand first then zip up and down the rows with the Honda tiller.

Digs deep enough without the depth bracket. Would be nice if Honda developed a way to have the gas control so that it can be controlled from either side of the machine. Overall I still give it a 5 stars.

Happy to find tiller fully assembled out of box. Added gas and supplied oil and was amazed on the ease of starting and the extreme quietness while running. And what a job it does! This baby is a keeper! Highly recommended!

Perfect!
We have been using our new Honda tiller for a couple of weeks now and I must say "don't be fooled by thinking this tiller is too small!" This machine packs a lot of punch and has done wonders for our garden and landscaping. So far - so good and I highly recommend. We also purchased the border/edger attachment which will be a huge time saver!

This Is A Great Machine
I've had this little guy for about 8 years. Its always run great for me. Look people, the smaller your engine generally the smaller the carbs. They are becoming more fickle due to the ethanol in the gas and the restrictions the EPA puts on these companies. This is what I do:

1. I only use super unleaded that's ethanol free.

2. I change the oil and do the regular inspections that it needs.

3. I take a cap full of Sta-bil and run the engine for about ten minutes to make sure it has... more

Pleasantly Surprised And Pleased!
We bought some fruit & nut trees a little late in the season, not expecting them to ship until fall. But they came in mid May when we already had 90 degree weather!! Not only that, but they came on a Monday. Knowing my husband would be away for work from 7am to at least 7pm (I'd be lucky if he got home that early), that meant I would be having to do all the work, because the bare-root trees needed to be put in the ground immediately. And the planting sites hadn't been prepared yet!!! I... more

Bye Bye Mantis
After three Mantis tillers I believe we found one that is worth all the money, we do a lot of gardening the Mantis just couldn't hold up. I think other people don't use there's as much as we do or maybe just bad luck on our side, but its time to try the Honda we shall see. So far so good, starts every time without any trouble, well balanced, and lots of power. But for the money we shall see.I own over thirty air cooled tools some for over thirty years old and still run strong with just general... more

Good At First
I'll echo what has been said by others. It is a fantastic machine out of the box and outperforms any expectations I'd have for a small cultivator. I even used it to tear up sod the first year I had it for a garden and a couple of landscaping beds. Last year was the third year I operated it and I started having the same issues everyone else mentions. No power, low RPMS, smoked like a freight train.. I'd maintained the machine over its life and when I started having these issues, the first... more

Carb Problems
As you can guess, the little Honda tiller I should be using to turn over my small 15 x 20 garden right now is in the shop. It's been there for over 3 weeks now and they're still scratching their heads. My neighbor with the Mantis is laughing at me. He's had that thing for 10 years. I've had mine for 6, the first 3 working well and really tearing up the dirt. Since then it's been on a steady, undependable, curse at the garden gods decline until now where the idle and start is ok but as soon... more

Carburator Problems
After using it for about a month, would not keep running. I took it to the dealer and he told the carburator was dirty and that I had used old gas. The gas I used is the same as I use in my lawnmower and have never had a problem. He cleaned it and within a month - same thing. Again I was told I used bad gas. I had it cleaned, put for sale on Craigslist and got rid of it.

Rings Shot
I bought the Honda expecting a very high quality machine. At first, it was a super-duper machine. Then, it started losing rpms. It got hard to start. Then it quit starting. Now, I learn that the rings are shot. It's not worth repairing. I think the air filter was cheap and didn't do its job, thus dust ruined the cylinders. I maintained it well it was just an expensive, cheap machine. Too bad.

Service Problems
I am starting my 4th season, have a small garden. At first I was very happy with it, but my enthusiasm is fading fast. My problem is that the tiller is losing power. It runs great when first starting, but as it warms up it loses power to the point that it will not turn the times even in loose soil. I bought it at Northern Tool, and now they don't have a service person. There is not another Honda outdoor equipment dealer within 30 miles of me. I replaced the spark plug at the end of last... more

Carborator And Gas Issues
Mine is three year old. The first season was GREAT!!!!! Oh the love. It is perfect in size. However, as time has gone on, season two I lost power, tried new oil and filters....ended up with a new carburetor. Season three, nothing but issues, I had to get two new carburetors in one season and by fall I was still in need of yet a third carburetor! I spent more money in new carburetors than for the tiller itself! Very disappointed! I was told my gas must be bad, but it was fresh, new gas... more

It Used To Be A Good Brand
As others have mentioned, the machine loses power under even a small load. Since it was a brand new machine I checked the obvious -- fuel filter, air filter, spark plug. Everything was fine. Once it gets warmed up it has no power. Then, the clincher, the plastic choke assembly broke. All this on its first (and last) day with me. Save yourself the headache. Buy something else.

Not Worth It! Dies In A Few Years...
I will generally echo what some of the negative reviews state here. After a few years this P.O.S. will simply not run well!

Generally it dogs/stalls out after warm and full load.

1) This is not a gas cap problem, which can sometimes be an issue as it needs to suck in air through the small holes. Holes are clear, and I tested it with the cap off.
2) Carb rebuilt.
3) New fuel lines and filter.
4) Spark arrestor clean.
5) Air filter clean.

I did not replace the entire carb, but it... more

Good Start But Doesn't Last
We bought this tiller to work the rows of our lavender farm. It worked great for about 45 minutes then it losses power and will hardly turn the tines. Plus dirt gets into the plastic accelerator and it would stick on full speed, and I would have to hit the kill switch to shut it off. It also became impossible to start after I had worked it for about 45 minutes. Had to take it to the repair shop after the first use. Was really excited at first, then the excitement dies off and frustration... more

An Okay Mini Roto-tiller.
This is our first Honda small engine device, so far it seems to work well in even the toughest clay soil. It is far, far better than the Troy-Bilt predecessor, in terms of starting, running and doing the job. However, I'm not real impressed with the grade of steel used in the blades--should be heavier grade or greater thickness, I'm not sure they're going to stand up to repeated use.
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight, Fast, Reliable
Cons: Difficult To Use, Durability, And A Little Difficult To Transport

One Acre And 40 Mules
I had (had) a bad spot in the yard full of construction trash i.e. small bricks and concrete. Well I put that little tiller to work and man was I ever surprised!! I had nothing but power/power/and more power' in fact it was like having 40 mules on one acre.
