A: Dear Charlene, We do not recommend increasing the length of cord beyond 100ft. Sun Joe 14 in. 6.5 Amp Electric Tiller/Cultivator
A: This is a tiller it will dig down to 7 inches and more, not good for scarifying or aeration.
A: I don't think so .it turn over the soil
A: This is a small tiller and is used to turn over the soil and dig up surface- definitely not an aeratior- it works great for its small size and will help get the job done when used to tear up the old lawn and turn the soil!
A: It completely turns over the soil
A: THIS NOT AN AERATOR, IT WILL TURN OVER LAWN
A: Thank you for the replies. To clarify my question, I know this isn't an aerator. I'm just asking if it will break up the soil enough to do some overseeding. I think a dethatcher/scarifier will be a better option; the lawn doesn't have to be perfect. A plug aerator would be best, but costly to rent plus I'd have to have it delivered and picked up. Also expensive to pay a lawn service. I need to go cheap. Thanks.
A: Yes. I have aerated my lawn with this machine. But when i did i did not force the tiller to work hard. I would push the tiller lightly and quickly across the lawn so it wouldn't dig up the grass. This tiller is only powerful enough to dig up a soil. But to dig up grass you would have to really work the machine over and over the grass to really turn over the soil. Good luck with your lawn.
A: I use mine for a small garden area. If your working area is large- the machine will overheat. I used it to till out some weeded area and it operates as a tiller turning over the soil. I would not consider this a aeration device.
A: No, it is not an alternative to aerating...this will completely turnover your lawn. It is a roto-tiller, not an aerator
A: Dear Joe, The 14 in. 6.5-Amp Electric Tiller/Cultivator will be able to break up lawn or soil in order to start seeding and planting. Hope this helps, if you have any other questions please let us know. Thanks Customer Service Team Snow Joe + Sun Joe
A: At 50 ft i would use 14 gauge and at 100 ft i would use 12 gauge
A: I don't know, I use one 100 ft brought from Home Depot, so far had no problem at all.
A: 14 doesn't warm up
A: We use a 50ft /14 gauge Cord and tilled for about 2 hours without any problems.
A: Use a 100 foot 14 gauge
A: Yes, I use the same thing all the time
A: TC: This one worries me. My dad was an electrician ans he always counselled me that for the longer the extension cord you needed to thicken the size of the wire. The gauge of the wire is relative to the size. The higher the gauge the narrower the wire and the less current you get to the tool. I invested in a 14 gauge wire for my 50' cord but I would think you'd need something substantially bigger/thicker for that distance. I would contact the manufacturer because I fear if ohms law is correct you'll need a much thicker wire for 100 feet. I hope that helps. Hank
A: If you're referring to the orange cords, yes you can.
A: Yes, it can be used with this product.
A: No, 16 gauge is too light, use a 100 ft 14 gauge
