Battery dies after 20 minutes and takes a long time to recharge.
The blades get clogged easily, so you have to constantly stop and clear them.
It is lightweight, compact for tight spaces and easy to handle.
Not worth the money unless you have perfect potting soil, in which case you really don't need it anyway.. It is useless in my raised garden beds and cannot handle any roots or heavy dirt.

Cultivator used for raised 4x4 garden beds and the weight and size were very good. The cultivator was first used in saturated soils with grass and leaf compost and the blades clogged easily requiring constant unclogging. It helped to turn the beds with a spade and use with drier soil but the cultivator does not get the same result as a tiller. The interchangeable 20V battery works well from other B&D garden tools and the battery life is good. Easy to assemble. Compared to other B&D products such as trimmers and blowers the cultivator doesn't quite meet my expectation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mastrmech1 Pretty decent product for the price
I have several 20V Black and Decker items and was able to purchase this cultivator without the battery or charger for a very reasonable price. It is very good at what it is designed to do but pales in comparison to a tiller. The gears do grind if too much stress is placed on them, makes me wonder how long this will last. If used as it was intended, to loosen earth around plants and in plant beds, this is an excellent machine. If you intend to break up hard earth in the yard for gardening, get a tiller. This is very light and easy to transport making it the ideal garden companion for spot gardening.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Johnny The battery will not last long.
As stated above, the run time on a 20 volt lithium battery is around 25 minutes at best, but I do have heavy clay soil and I am sure that played a part in the short battery life. It does what it is designed to do. Remember this purchase does not come with a battery and if you Need to use it for an extended period of time you will need like 6 batteries and chargers to keep it going for 2 hours or so.
