Asked by: 19953
You don't have to "start" this machine. After it is plugged up, you just pull the trigger and it is running. Just like a drill.

Can I increase Maximum Till Depth (in.) with this model or different model?

I'm cleaning a field growing raspberry- the roots got deeper than 8.5 in.
Asked by: retiredfarmer
When I want to go deeper, I remove the dirt from the tilled area and go over it again repeating until I get the depth I want. I do this when I am planting 2 gallon shrubs. Works like a charm and beats a shovel. P_lus when you put the dirt back in, it isall busted up for planting.

Will it break up fresh ground to start a garden.

Asked by: Kiesha
If you're doing an area much more than 100 sq. ft, you'll want to look at something else. In my opinion, this tiller is good for existing beds only. I found that for breaking sod, this tiller is a major underperformer. I tilled a 25'x65' garden, and it took me a lot of hard work over a month's worth of weekends. I finally resorted to using my string trimmer to cut the bermuda grass down to bare earth, because the tines kept getting bogged down with runners and rhizomes. Once I graduated to a full size gas powered tiller, I did the same amount of work in 4 hours, instead of 4 whole weekends.

Extension cord

I've read answers to another extension cord question, but I'd like clarification--where the extension cord plugs into the tiller, is it 2 prong or 3 prong? I know either way I can use an adapter. Thanks for any input. marber
Asked by: marber
Ok Marber, The Plug is two pronged and "polarized". It will only plug in one way. The tiller is double insulated. In short, there is a separation between you and the electricity built in. You CAN defeat that protection by doing silly things, like tilling in a puddle, barefoot in a rainstorm. If you follow the ALL the safety directions, no problems. Happy gardening!

11 in. 8.5 Amp Electric Tiller and Cultivator is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 474.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my Expectations! I am a 67 year old woman and I was afraid this tiller would be challenging to handle but it was not. In fact, it was fun to use. I started out with the wheels down but after getting used to it, I put the wheels up and the tiller dug deep into my clay soil. I will have to break up some of the soil with a mattock and then a shovel; I am 100% confident the tiller will turn that clay into submission especially after I cover it with mulched leaves and compost and then re-till it. I am so grateful for this product and recommend it to anyone who wants to have fun with a garden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I just can't figure out why I've never bought one of these. This particular one is amazing. I just put it together today. The instructions were a bit weird but it was so simple to figure out anyhow. It took me less than 10 minutes to set it up. I just bought it in store yesterday and tried it for the first time today only intending to do a small patch but I found it quite fun and ended up tilling much more. I used to do this every year with a shovel and could only manage a small garden. Now my garden will be huge. It was super easy to use and I wasn't fatigued after using it either. It cut through thick roots and turned the soil nicely. I totally recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Created a 20' x 12' garden where grass was in one day I tilled through some well established lawn to create a new 20' x 12' garden in one day. I'm 5'7" so I could only give is 4 stars for ease of use. It would be easier for someone 6' or taller to wrangle, but it did cut through the sod. I used a sort of forward and backward motion to kind of take bites through it as I went. I noticed my best technique involved grabbing on the side and would have loved it if the gripper part went that far around, but I had good grippy gloves on, so I managed. Since it would have cost me $200 to have someone else break ground for me, this tiller has already earned it's keep! And, I'm going to use it to cultivate between rows, once they're planted. Oh, I did rake the grass from the top when I was done tilling, which I recommend. It allowed me to find any spots I missed and now I have nice clean dirt 6" down! It made the edges look a little messy, but I'll tidy those up soon. I'm adding of picture of my dog guarding the newly tilled garden from birds (Ok, sometimes she does sleep on the job). :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tiller I had been meaning to buy a tiller for some time and finally took the time to make the purchase. I have had the tiller for only a few weeks and I have used the tiller for a number of projects I had never intended to use it for. Great purchase and good quality tool.

I was skeptical to buy this Tiller for my backyard, but after read the other customers review I decided to give it a shot and try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I created a Home Depot account just so I could write this review! I am very happy that I bought this tiller/cultivator! I had been on the fence about buying a tiller in order to weed our overgrown flower garden and had not been impressed w the reviews for other tillers, but this morning after working hard w little impact using out Garden Claw and a rake I look again and found this one. Weeding that garden by hand was probably going to take several days and spring is coming early so I had to do something faster. :) I'm tired of weed wacking my garden every week or two. This is much less expensive than hiring it done and now I have the machine if I want to use it again or I can sell it. I tilled the whole flower garden which lines the front of my house in about an 75 minutes! I do not have a particularly strong arms, but I had no trouble running this tiller. The only difficult thing was pressing the safety button while engaging the start switch – it was a little awkward and I imagine if any neighbor saw me, they would have a little giggle. LOL! I'm so glad I bought this tiller. Bravo, Earthwise, Bravo!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I guess it does what it says it does..... Let me begin by saying, I am a tool guy. I love to do things around the house and every new project affords me the opportunity to justify to my wife the purchase of a new tool. So, she says to me, "hon, lets plant a garden". I'm on it babe! Purchased this tiller and after an easy 10 minute assembly plugged it in and went to town. Doesn't do well with hard packet soil. You have to go over the same spot a couple of times to get a nice break up. I am a big guy and I had to forcibly keep it from jumping all over the place. Works well in soft or moderately hard soil. If the ground is compacted at all forget it, you will be there all day. Constructed well so I guess it's worth the money....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard worker Was worried about the power of an electric unit vs gas. But thinking how it's only used a couple times a year by me, gas storage lawn equipment is harder to take care of. With this electric unit it is a simple clean up and store. Have only used it once to prep garden, will see if it works again as easy in a few months. It should. Looked small out of the box and didn't think tines were big enough. I have a small 20 X 20 plot, just don't want to spade mix anymore. This tiller worked like a champ with no problems, tore up the soil, weeds and last years plantings with ease. Just the right size for a home gardener. Assembly was pretty simple also.
