Yes, this was the main purpose for my purchase - weed control in and around mulched lawn areas.

can this be used to turn compost in a standing compost bin?

I don't see why not. However it only goes as deep as the tongs and shouldn't be used as a shovel.

How hard would it be to break up clay dirt using this tiller?

Answers

You would be pretty worn out afterward but it is possible. I'm in North Texas and our soil is full of clay as well. It definitely worked but I pulled the bigger weed clumps beforehand so I didn't have to fight against roots and crazy soil.

Is it made of steel or aluminum?

Is this hand tiller suitable for breaking up fresh ground with a dense covering of Bermuda grass?

Not very well suited for thatched turf turning. Would be a significant effort to turn a small area.

Great for smaller, previously worked flowerbeds or gardens
This Garden Tiller works very well for small areas where the soil is not hard-packed or bone dry. It is best suited for those beds which have been previously worked in prior years. For instance, I used it along the border of the flowerbed that extends along the front of my house. Every Spring I plant flowers there which I buy in 4" containers, usually Periwinkles or Begonias. So that soil was fairly loose to begin with and was an ideal spot to use this Tiller. Once you start tilling, you want to overlap your work space about halfway so that it really minces up the soil. I would also take the Tiller and poke or stab at the larger clods after each twist in order to break them up. You only have to turn the Tiller halfway for each plunge as that is sufficient for it to break up the soil. I was able to do my whole bed, about 60 sq ft, in fifteen minutes. I need to mention that this is a bed that has a soaker hose irrigation system located right on the surface, so I was able to work around that very easily with this tool as you can control it precisely where you want it to work. I highly recommend this hand Tiller for smaller, existing flower beds or gardens.
