Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Machine ! I've worked in Landscaping and on Golf courses and have used all types of equipment and so I was not expecting too much from this unit....but I was really impressed ! Easy to handle, light weight with more than enough power to handle tiling jobs in the garden. Easy to assemble. Great price. You won't be disappointed... November 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product Bought it for my parents and they love it. It's only been a couple of months so not sure how long it's gonna work without problems. They think the wheels are a little cheap and look like toy wheels. November 18, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, and fairly lightweight. did a great job. November 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 One of our better purchases lately! When we opened the box we were a little leary as the wheels are plastic and the handles didn't seem like they would be very strong. There wasn't much to assembling, that was pretty easy. I enjoy the ease of it being electric, so easy to start and run. Our ground is very hard but we soaked it the night before tilling the area. This tiller just cuts right through it. When it comes to areas with heavy roots it takes a little bit for the tiller to get through it but still does not seem to be much work for this tiller. Myself and my wife both take turns using it, it is that easy to use and we are both sixty-something! This has been a great investment for us, we are really enjoy using it! April 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Only Wish I Purchased It Sooner! I was so careful in making this purchase. I thought what about having a gardener or landscaper come in to just rototiller what I wanted done--some 600 square feet of yard that I wanted to put new sod down. That would cost me $200. The rototiller cost me less, so I took a plunge. I thought I might be able to use it for my soon-to-be vegetable garden as well, so I thought having the equipment is better than having someone do it for me. I read all the reviews and picked the rototiller that seemed to work the best for those who used it. Boy, I was happily delighted that I did. It is a great little tool. I'm female, 65 years old and I was able to handle it. It did a beautiful job. I waited for a rain, then gave it another 2 days to dry out some. It was great! I rototilled once, then added my planting mixture and rototilled again. Some people said not to get a rototiller that had its wheels behind the tines. It wasn't a problem. Easily was able to pull it back, instead of always forward and able to get a good deep till. All I must say, don't delay in purchasing this rototiller. It was wonderful and easy to use -- only wish that I had bought it earlier for other jobs in the garden. October 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Small tiller has big power We wanted a smaller tiller as we have raised vegetable beds and the big tillers just don't minuver well in these smaller beds. We have used this tiller to get our rose beds, garden and canna beds all ready for Spring. It has done a great job even used it in our clay soil to till in compost. Great little worker, April 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't judge a book by its cover. I have to admit, when I first opened the box, I was NOT impressed. The wheels and handles seemed like thin, flimsy plastic, and the only thing that seemed worth the money were the tines. But I gave it a chance. So I brought it out to my little garden, with my light, almost sandy soil. I started it up and watched it struggle. I cussed it, especially when it stopped. Then I turned it off and lifted it up. And found that while I had been standing there cussing it, this impressive little machine had been cheerfully grinding away at a previously-unseen network of roots, some of which were the width of my thumb. The wheels still seem flimsy, but otherwise, this is a hard working, wonderful little tool. May 29, 2012
