Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nancys Great purchase!
Assembly took very little help from another person. Cultivates garden areas that I was having trouble digging into & so much easier on the back! Also using it to keep weeds down in area with shrubs- can be used a little more shallow if needed. Love the line of Ryobibproducts using rechargeable battery. They're efficient, but lightweight & easy to use.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by orjack It failed quickly
I bought this to cultivate close to garden plants after weeding and the reviews confirmed what I wanted to use it for. The first use for one battery charge was great. I did some other work in the garden and installed a fresh battery and it immediately started making a grinding noise and the motor smoked. It is going back to HD tomorrow. First one plus tool that hasn't worked great. I have had a string trimmer for years and it works great. My impact driver has driven over 4000 screws including the big FastenMaster lags and keeps coming back for more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hojo7777 Great for looser soil
This cultivator is excellent for the two uses I have for it -- weeding my raised bed garden (which has loose soil) and removing scattered grass plants from my soft sand beach. It is light, easy to use and does a great job of getting into smaller spaces without tearing up my vegetable plants. It does NOT replace a rota-tiller, but is perfect for the jobs that I needed it for and that a rota-tiller couldn't do. I have quite a few of the Ryobi One+ tools and this one was a welcome addition.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MOT good handheld cultivator
The cultivator was exactly as described, works very well for my intended purpose. The battery life is excellent and was able to complete my job without need to recharge. Worked very well in garden bed
that was previously tilled.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amy Effective. But weird.
Does what it's supposed to, but keeping ahold of it while it does is an adventure. Its mechanism of motion makes it seem to tug hard right, at least on mine.
Also, if you're short you will find yourself at a disadvantage, even with the handle as short as it will go.
Strongly recommend you make sure there are no rocks in anything you're cultivating because this thing bucks HARD if it hits a rock of any real size.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JTGreat Ryobi cordless cultivator
I bought this because of the diameter is small enough to get into small flower beds. Was very surprised at the power and how lightweight it is. Battery changing is easy. I absolutely love this cultivator!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bachyordgardner Great cultivator
As always, I am not disappointed with my Ryobi purchase. It is a great little cultivator that does a great job, is lite weight and easy on the back. The new batteries I purchased at the same time, lasted a good 50 minutes. You do have to be careful if you hit a root or stone, it will bounce and possibly take out something you weren't intending to. But, that is to be expected with any cultivator.
