When I opened the box there was an amount of leaked oil present in the packaging. After I assembled the tiller I checked to see where it may be coming from. Seems like it was coming from where the gearbox unit was fitted to the motor section and is held together with 4x 10mm nuts. I checked the tightness and they weren't that tight, so I nipped them up (about 1/2 to 1 turn more. This should compress the gasket properly and prevent further leakage. I removed one of the tines (13mm nut and bolt) to get at the filler/level plug and removed it (it was a bit loose) and added about 1/2 small cupful of engine oil. and checked the level by turning the machine upright and checking to see if any oil came out. Added a bit more until it started to flow out, then refitted the drain/level plug and nipped it up. I'm guessing there are so many accounts of gearbox failure because this simple bit of maintenance was not done. Now to try it out. FANTASTIC ! I have used several electric tillers (rotavators) before, but this is far and away the best I have ever used. It's powerful and handles the job with ease. It's better if you go backwards (as I have found with all of them) and it even hoicked out a piece of rubble about the size of a house-brick with no issues at all. It dealt with our plot in about 20 minutes saving several hours of labour. All in all delighted, but for the fact it needed maintenance beforehand due to poor quality control I would have given 4 stars, but due to the amount of 1 star reviews due to idiots who have no idea, I am going to give it 5 stars. On balance - do the simple checks I have outlined and you too will to be delighted!
