Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Not well made...
I guess it's made for super light work in already tilled dirt. I bought this last year and did ok for tilling between rows and other simple tasks. But this spring I was using it for simple tilling, I already pulled the vegetation and had turned the ground. I got about 1/2 way through my small garden and it snapped.
That's $100 I'll never see again.....

I have been dreaming of having this type of cultivator for as long as I have had my garden. I never thought this dream would come true.
The shipping came to me in 1 day via Fedex. Really fast.
As soon as it came I took everything out of the box. Then I put the Lithium Ion battery on charge. Both were included. Then I put on the handle. Easy. I had trouble with pulling the hitch pins that hold the 2 cultivator tines and needed help taking them off the protective cardboard shield and putting them back on with the tines.
Then we went out to the garden for a test run. They plowed through the dirt so well. It will make my season of planting and weeding so much easier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MikeB Great for small gardens
I assembled this cultivator quickly and easily, without the use of directions. I charged the lith ion battery (about 45 minutes) and put it to work on a small garden plot in my yard that was overrun with weeds. The cultivator worked well and was comfortable to handle. It removed the weeds and broke up the soil down to about 6 inches. After running it over the plot several times, it left the dirt finely broken up and ready for planting. Running at full speed, the battery lasted about 15 minutes, which was all I needed. The cultivator worked well for this fairly small application, but I wouldn’t recommend it for larger gardens or where the soil is severely compacted.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Erin Cheap plastic
I really loved the cultivator! So easy to use, did a great job cultivating a 10x10ft garden plot, & I love that the battery can be used with our other Ryobi tools. However, the plastic rings where the tines attach kept breaking. I don't think that this was a very important piece, but if I'm spending $100 on something, I'd like for it to stay together. I returned it twice & had them open the third one at the store and it was already broken. I am surprised that there weren't more people saying this in reviews. If Ryobi used a better plastic, this would be a great tool!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vanessa6297 Easy to use
My mom recently purchased this product. She bought it to help cultivate some raised beds we have in our back yard. I helped her with the project. I found it very easy to use. It is a lot stronger then I thought it would be. I don't really have any complaints about the product besides the fact that dirt can clump in the tines. I love it moves though the dirt with ease and that it isn't very loud. I also love how it offers an adjustable handle so if you are working in a tight space you can make the handle short if needed. It is much lighter then I thought it would be also. I highly recommend this product if you are in need of a small cultivator.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DanTheGrillMan I really wanted to like this, but it just did not perform
I have many Ryobi tools and I really hoped this one would be on par with the rest. I was disappointed. The teeth just rotate a few inches back and forth and do very little to break up the soil. Weeds get tangled into the teeth very quickly, so you need to stop, clean them off, and start again very often. I have used this on two 4'x8x raised bed gardens. Luckily, I have several of the battery packs because the one that came with this only lasted about half way through one of these small beds. I'm considering returning this and purchasing an actual tiller.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wendell Good buy
I have used this tiller more and more in the last three weeks doing pre-spring prep work. I've tilled all the soil at my house: veggie garden, planter gardens, and now pulling up the dead grass spots. It works great and does not cause harm to my plants or drip system. ! But the battery only lasts 20-25 minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by retiredlady Best little Cultivator ever!
the cultivator was easy to assemble, and charged the battery the night I bought it. The next day I put it to the test in my flower bed which was overgrown with weeds, it worked great!!!!!!!!! Had the whole bed done in less than an hour. I was able to go in between my flowers and break up the soil to a nice fine dirt. I had been looking for a product like this for a long time Now I can go to work on the rest of my flowers and be able to keep them weed free all summer long!
