Answer: 
No, this is by power cord only (needs to be a three prong cord). The description says it needs to be at least 12 guage, but this is a fairly average extension cord.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great rototiller for small spaces Does an excellent job in the 3 - 4' x 8' raised gardens we have. It's light enough to pick up an move around with ease. I was done in 15 minutes. May 1, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product for the price I bought this early spring and have used it extensively to till my entire back yard to prepare my flower and vegatable gardens as well as plant new grass. As a single woman I needed something inexpensive and easy to use, and didn't want to spend a lot of money renting one when I knew I wouldn't be able to work all day, and wanted to work at my own pace. This tiller is perfect, inexpensive, easy to use and performs very well. I've had no problems using it and it does not take up much space storing it in my small shop, and no gas fumes to worry about. I absolutely love this machine, I'm glad my mom talked me into getting it. Highly recommended. August 8, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised. Better than gas-powered for smaller projects. The Yard Machines 9" Electric Cultivator works about as expected. It is easy to set up, except I couldn't figure out how to use the plastic cord-minder clip, but you don't really need that clip anyway, so I don't use it. It's easy to use and effective, but occasionally tips over in use. Also, it tends to miss a strip in the middle between the two blades, so you will probably want to use a criss-cross pattern to eliminate that strip. I previously used a gas-powered cultivator, but the electric is much easier to maintain, so is better for smaller projects. I was able to cultivate a patch of 20' by 60' in about 40 minutes. April 24, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good little tiller. I just bought this cultivator/tiller and used it to till my 10ft by 10ft vegetable garden area after having turned the soil over with a pitch fork. It worked well; it dug down over 6 inches, which was just what I wanted. It is lightweight which is great. It is much easier to use than the heavy, cumbersome rototillers I’ve rented. Like the other tillers, the maneuverability is a little loosy-goosy when used while walking forward because it goes off-kilter, leans over and tends to stay in place and dig deeper. I found it was more controllable when I walked backward pulling it. It churned in the mulch, didn’t get caught up on roots and broke up the soil just right for planting. April 24, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cultivator that thinks it's a tiller Fantastic for what it is. Tears through tough soil and roots. Binds up on bigger roots - but then again it is not meant for breaking new ground. Works like a dream for turning over my existing beds and mixing in new soil/fertilizer. I needed to make a new bed and this little powerhouse tore through the weeds, small roots and rocky soil with no problems. I love that you don't have an engine to stop and re-start. When it is time to clean the tines, they disassemble and reassemble with ease, making cleaning out those small roots and weeds a cinch. April 16, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Real timesaver! I bought this cultivator to redo my flowers beds. I previously tried digging them out by hand but the ground was to hard to use a shovel. I went to home depot to rent one and saw this one on closeout since it was the display model, it was already assembled. This thing chewed through the flowerbeds in no time and i was able to loosen the soil very easily. I am very happy with my purchase. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yard Machines Electric Tiller After tilling a 500 sq ft plot using only a pitchfork and shovel prior to planting sod, I quickly came to realize that I needed to find another means to do the same on a 2nd 500 sq ft area. This tiller fit the bill; efficient, relatively inexpensive, non-polluting, effective, and easy for a woman to use. Because I was tilling an area where sod had originally been planted, I found that the mesh from the old sod became wound up in the tines. The tines were easy to remove, clean and replace. This tiller isn't as heavy-duty as the larger gas powered model that I'd used before, so it takes a little longer to till. But it doesn't take a truck to transport it, takes very little space to store and is now available for any upcoming projects. I'd highly recommend it! January 3, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lasted about 45 minutes I should have read the reviews before buying this. I wouldn't have bought it. It lived up to the review that said that the product was not reliable. I bought it, took it home, used it about 45 minutes, it quit, wouldn't start again. I thought maybe it had just overheated so I tried it again the next day, nothing. After reading what the other reviewer said about getting support, I elected to just return it to the store for a refund. Was easy to use and would have been great if it hadn't quit. July 17, 2013
