I bought this tiller because I have a 3 ft by 30 ft area by my house with a large rock border that I wanted to plant flowers in. The tiller was easier to use than I thought it would be. The ground was hard packed and 30 to 40% clay. I was able to break the ground down a good 6 inches and could have gone deeper if I needed to. The tines got clogged with dirt a couple of time, but were easy to clean. Breaking up ground right up against rock border was easy! I'm very pleased with this product and look forward to using it again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for smaller, previously worked flowerbeds or gardens This Garden Tiller works very well for small areas where the soil is not hard-packed or bone dry. It is best suited for those beds which have been previously worked in prior years. For instance, I used it along the border of the flowerbed that extends along the front of my house. Every Spring I plant flowers there which I buy in 4" containers, usually Periwinkles or Begonias. So that soil was fairly loose to begin with and was an ideal spot to use this Tiller. Once you start tilling, you want to overlap your work space about halfway so that it really minces up the soil. I would also take the Tiller and poke or stab at the larger clods after each twist in order to break them up. You only have to turn the Tiller halfway for each plunge as that is sufficient for it to break up the soil. I was able to do my whole bed, about 60 sq ft, in fifteen minutes. I need to mention that this is a bed that has a soaker hose irrigation system located right on the surface, so I was able to work around that very easily with this tool as you can control it precisely where you want it to work. I highly recommend this hand Tiller for smaller, existing flower beds or gardens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stand Up Garden Tiller I used this on a previously worked garden plot, and it did o.k. as long as the soil wasn't impacted or too dry. It did do a good job turning up the soil though. I went over it about 3 times, starting shallow at first, and was able to go a little deeper, with each pass. If you have a small plot that has previously been tilled, this would work great to till up the soil for planting without having to use a gas operated tiller, or in a raised bed. It's fairly easy to use, depending on how hard the ground you're working in. You just twist the handle bars back and forth to loosen the soil. For small previously tilled plots and for raised beds, I would recommend this tiller.

The soil was saturated with rain water, so it made the job easier. If your area is dry and hard I would recommend making sure the area is very saturated, this will make the job go faster. The selling point for me was that I would not have to bend over, and this is absolutely true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars for sure I have 4 raised beds in the backyard - they were very overgrown with weeds and crabgrass because I didn't plant anything last year. I thought that tilling would be very difficult, but using this tool made quick work of it. It didn't take much force (my back and legs feel just fine!) - but please do wear gloves because I got a blister on my hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This vertical tiller eats dirt for breakfast, lunch and dinner Light weight but solid in its construction. This vertical tiller's tines are beastly, rest assured you are not about to deform them anytime soon. And if you have compacted, miserable soil you will get a workout to boot.
