Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tillerwoman 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.

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.

Typically I have always used outdoor tillers powered by a gas engine, so I was a bit hesitant when I came across this electric powered item. However after noticing it's positive reviews and price point, not too mention growing tired of having to rent, rush to return to the store in time, refill with gas, etc...I decided to make the purchase.
Within 2-1/2 - 3 hours and some assistance with a garden spade, I was able to break through an established lawn and create an 8' x 10' vegetable garden for my wife. Only one small annoyance is that the power cord can tend to get in the way, but it's ease of use, compact size, non-stop performance and eliminating the need to rent definitely outweighs the negative.
As a side note, if having to cut through a lawn, it may make things easier by renting a sod cutter and/or larger heavier duty tiller, but as I mentioned above, I utilized a garden spade to break up small sections at a time to speed up the process, the tiller did the rest.
Bottom-line, I would recommend this to anyone, especially one whom already has an established lawn and/or landscaping.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Butch great machine for the money
This machine was easy to assemble and is easy to use. Although I haven't tried it for hard soil, it wokrs quite well for tilling a garden which is why I bought it. My favorite part is that it is electric and therefore no hassle with getting it started as I did with the gas model. I had a Bolens previously and it was always hard starting and broke down twice requiring repair.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gertrude 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). :)

Reg.$149.00. Reduced price was $139.00. With 10% coupon approx. $14.00 off. With tax paid $133.86
My 14 year old son assembled the tiller. Only a Phillips head screwdriver was needed. Using a 14 gage 100 Ft. extension cord plugged in my shed outlet I tilled 10 rows each 20 ft. in length. The horse manure and soil blended so beautifully into a mixture you couldn't buy! Beautiful fine soil for my vegetable garden! For 25 years I did the backbreaking tilling with shovels. I'm 60 years old now and should have bought this a long time ago. My soil has been cleared of stones over the years and I watered the area to soften the horse manure and soil first. I tilled each row twice to get a little extra depth to plant I am only a consumer who shops around for what I think is the best deal for the projects I have around the house. I did read the reviews first before purchasing. The tiller is more than I ever expected. Has plenty of power and was very easy to use and easy to clean with the garden hose. I would have no problem recommending the to anyone. Just be sure to press the safety button while pulling the safety handle at the same time. Very good safety feature. Oh yea before I forget, no need for gasoline!
