Answer: 
I have used my teller in hard, rocky dirt and heavy clay. I added sand to the mix. I helps to soften up soil 18 hours before with hose but it's not necessary. I would also suggest you run tiller for 15 min then do something else (hoe, rake) for 3 min so belt doesn't get too hot and break.

Answer: 
Hello minvervasmadness,
Our tillers are specifically geared low for maximum torque to provide the best performance through very dense and heavy soil, so our TJ600E should do the trick. Still, in the instance of cultivating clay, our most powerful tilling unit is the TJ603E (Home Depot Internet#: 206042943), our 16-inch 12-amp tiller. The 12-amp motor and 6 steel tines are more than capable of handling

Answer: 
I would suggest a larger, more powerful machine. This is a great machine for re-tilling a garden or for breaking up "common" soil but I don't think it is powerful enough for Georgia Clay.

Answer: 
I don't live in GA but CO instead. I would say that it is not strong enough, the soil here has rock but not too heavy and this machine is good for light tilling in small areas. Hope that helps.

Does Sun Joe 14-inch 6.5 Amp Electric Tiler HAVE WHEELS?

Does Sun Joe 14-inch 6.5 Amp Electric Tiler HAVE WHEELS? \
Specifications do not mention any wheels.
Sun Joe manufacturer's photos and owners' posted pictures don't show wheels.
But one buyer's review in Spring 2015 said it does, "Cindu" on this HD site.
The bigger tilers (8.5 Amp Sun Joe and others) do show wheels.
How important are wheels for safety and ease of tilling?

Hello Tilly,
The TJ600E unit does not have wheels. We currently offer two electric tiller units without wheels (TJ599E & TJ600E), and two with wheels (TJ601E & TJ603E).
Wheels are mostly useful for re-positioning and transportation of the tiller, and do not necessarily help much when actually tilling. Most tillers operate the same way--you engage the tiller and "pull back on the reins", allowing the tiller to move at a certain rate and in certain areas. Tillers naturally want to move forward due to the rotation of the tines, so it is your "backwards force" on the handle that determines the forward speed and depth of the till. The wheels should have little effect on the actual tilling experience, as the tines are the driving force when the tiller is engaged.
Hope this helps!

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 121 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good little tiller For a low powered electric tiller it works pretty good. The tines seem a little flimsy and it is slow loosening up my hard Georgia clay, but it gets the job done. Also if there are any roots in the ground it will stop the tiller. August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sent to me used This product is great to use, easy to till. Just hated the fact that it came in used, had oil stains on the box, parts had dirt, even the UPS guy said the box is beat up. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IMPROVED DESIGN FROM SAME MODEL OF YEARS AGO! Super easy and fast to assemble. I suggest you use for 10-15 min then do something else for 3 min so the belt doesn't get too hot and break. This electric rototiller is great because it doesn't require any maintenance. Just plug-n-play! August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It worked I used the tiller to the dirt in my backyard. It worked well and it was safe June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good tiller Has great power. Will get small jobs done quick. The only draw back to it is storing it. It does not have a kick stand so you have to lean against a wall or hang it up. The rotors are exposed so becareful with storing it. June 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Got one use and motor stopped working. I bought this tiller and used it 1 time. I didn't even get through the whole yard before the motor burned out. I called the manufacture and they quickly replaced it. I started on my lawn again. The tiller no longer works. The motor runs but the blades do not rotate. While it was working it did a great job but this tiller can not handle weeds. Do not buy it unless you are working with soil that's already in good condition. May 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good product easy to use worked well would recommend to others. June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dissatisfied tiller was shipped without the screws and bolts to assemble also when trying to start it would not start. This product was defective. June 8, 2016
