Used it for the first time, 22 feet of cement hard dirt. I was smart and let it work for me, I let it do its thing at its pace. It not only went threw the cement dirt but it went through the roots of the shrubs. It did not stop once on me and did not break the safety pins that holds the blades here is a video. Don't listen to the bad reviews trust me. Anyone of them that say they Are not powerful does not no what there talking about. I'm glad I bought it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by countrygirl13 Earthwise Tiller Cultivator
This tiller cultivator is perfect for my use. It is easy to assemble, doesn't use gas to run it, is lightweight and manuevers wonderfully. The land I have and the areas I selected for my gardens had never been worked before yet this tiller did a great job even slicing through tree roots of an inch in diameter. I am more than pleased with the tiller and recommend it for anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ART005 Gets the job done
I was a little hesitant that such a small tiller would be useful but I got a good price and couldn't find a middle size I liked better. First, I spent about 8 hrs turning the overgrown grass by hand with a shovel before buying the tiller. Then I spent 1.5 hours tilling the 6.5' x 22' garden with the electric tiller. I had to stop often to clear the roots wound up on the blades. It was nice to have such a lightweight machine to turn over for cleaning. Until the blades wind up with grass roots, it does a great job tilling. I would say it is 10 times faster than me and my shovel.
In the before picture the grass clumps were turned upside down so the roots would dry. It was more work for the little tiller than it looks. The after picture shows the dirt tilled and most of the roots gone. A photo of one pile of roots shows about half that were removed.
I like the safety start feature. I'm surprised it isn't 10-11 amps to match extension cords but it does alright.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by treckle Great value for a hard working machine
I bought this cultivator to clear out my neglected garden and replace it with some other hardscaping. After reading the reviews of other purchasers, I decided to go with this cultivator. I was not disappointed! This thing chewed through close to 600 sqft of land. The only thing it couldn't handle were some large tree roots that I had to dig out. ProTip: if you're tearing up weeds or grass, mow them down almost to the dirt first. Long grass/weeds can easily get wrapped around the tines and it takes a sharp tool to cut them out. You'll save a bit of time if you prep the area you're clearing first.
The only problem I had with this product was that one of the wing nuts holding the handle together managed to unscrew itself during all the work I put it through. I was able to find it, but I'll be paying closer attention to it next time...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynne I LOVE IT!
I roto-tilled my entire 10x15 garden plot with it. It is light weight enough for me to do it myself. It churned up the soil, cut up the leaves and made my burrows. It only took me a couple hours. Next, I will be doing flower beds. VERY impressed with this little tiller.

Easy to assemble, instructions need work. I was very surprised that this electric tiller did the job of breaking ground even through the grass. I was told buy a tool rental specialist at HD that I would need a bigger machine to brake through the grass so I rented the big one, boy was that a mistake and a chore and it didn't work well on breaking ground in fact I took it back because it really didn't do the job well. Before buying a tiller I read the reviews on this little tiller and was pleased that most liked it. I gave it a try, it couldn't be any worse than the "big" one, wow did this little thing chew up the ground. I call it the Beast now because it took care of business and made things so much easier. It does give you a work out so hang on. I found it easier to lift the wheels in the back, it seemed to dig in better. For the work I plan for the Beast I will need a back up set of tiller blades. Now the cons while this Beast is well suited for the job I found that if you let go even a slight bit of the lever that it will shut off; I know this is a safety feature but with the work out you get you may loose your grip and have to restart often. That being said overall it is a little BEAST of a tiller.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TerryC AS good as I thought it would be.
Last year I bought an Earthwise chain saw. It is excellent. This year, I decided to trust them in my purchase of an electric tiller. It took about 15 minutes to unpack and assemble. An electric tiller will not ever have the same torque as a gasoline powered machine. They also don't stink, make noise, and require constant maintenance. You can park it, and squeeze the trigger for instant re-starts.
It gives a certain safety assurance in its ease of operation. When you let go, it stops.
You might need to cover the same ground a little more than with a gas tiller, but that is a small price to pay in lieu of the benefits. Super product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrcontinental Better than advertised
This little jewel did a fabulous job on some really packed soil. It had absolutely no problems what so ever with anything that I threw at it. Not having to deal with any gas mixture is just the icing in the cake.
I can't comment on it's durability yet but at $149.00 if I only get another five jobs out of it I'm still ahead from not having to rent a gas sucking beast.
I'm happy with it.
