I had my reservations on this one at first; I mean how can a cordless electric tool power a roto-tiller? And one that connects to what is essentially a string trimmer motor no less?! Well, Ego has once again shown me that my preconceived ideas of what cordless electric tools can do are outdated. Every one of their tools I've used so far has met or exceeded my expectations and the cultivator attachment is no exception. The build quality is great and it performs just as equally. I ran this thing on a single 5.0Ah battery for a good hour plus, finished tilling my small backyard garden and it still had juice to spare. My yard is pretty rocky too and this thing, along with the power head powered right through everything I threw at it.

Thing thing is a beast! Works as advertised. Easy to assemble. Took me 30 minutes to do what took me 2 days to do with a shovel. Highly recommended!

EGO products are wonderful! The cultivator attachment tilled our garden with little effort and a perfect depth. It shares a battery with the other EGO products we own and love: chain saw, edger, trimmer, and blower.

Works really well. The blades are a bit larger than expected which is nice. Some of the reviews said they were small. Soil should be moist for best results.

This thing is a beast. It'll tear into the ground and give you some nice fluffy soil to work with. It'll stall out if you hit a buried full-size brick, but it will shoot partial bricks up and out.

I am absolutely delighted with all the Ego products I have purchased. The batteries are pricey but the money is well spent. Love that everything uses the same battery and only one charger is needed.

I put the cultivator through its paces today. Our backyard is going to be relandscaped and I needed to break down a couple of raised garden beds. Each one was 4' x 8' x 12" tall. That's a lotta soil. It was nice, loose soil which is exactly what I think this cultivator will be best for. And sure enough it performed as expected. Which is to say, great! I had removed the planter forms and just the rectangular piles of soil remained. So, I put a 2.5 ah battery that had been used a little bit so wasn't fully charged on it and got to cultivatin'. I found since the soil was loose enough that the cultivator really dug in and wanted to move the dirt easily. A really nice feature is the tines are fairly self cleaning so they didn't want to clog up with the soil.I also realised I was able to push and pull on the cultivator using only the hand that was operating the trigger. Didn't even need the other hand for the D handle. I noticed when I tried the cultivator on harder soil I definitely need to hold on to the D handle. Not having to hold onto the handle seemed to make the job easier. I could reach out with the cultivator, let it lower into the soil and then just pull it back. Almost like using a rake one-handed. I got a good 20 minutes run time on that 2.5 ah battery even though I know it wasn't fully charged. It was enough to do the entire job. I found it comfortable enough to operate with either hand. Given I'm left handed but am fairly ambidextrous I was glad it was easy to use with either hand. I'm still thinking some kind of wheels would be a nice addition to this. I've attached a few pictures showing one of the raised beds, both of them, and also the final spreading of the dirt across the yard. I did use a rake to finish the job to evenly spread the dirt out a bit more.

Easy to assembly and use. Quite heavy to use for an extended length of time.

  • May 14, 2019

I own six Ego tools and have been very happy with the performance and value of the whole line. I added the tiller attachment this spring to our collection. This is the first Ego item I would say is a poor value for what you pay compared to what you get -- especially at the new May 2019 increased pricing. Out of the box, weight is not bad, and both shaft and housing are solid. The tines are installed and removed simply enough with a cotter pin on each side the axle. The cover guard is very cheap plastic instead of aluminum. There is no additional handle or gripping pad which would help with usage. In use, power transfers well down the shaft, but you will find the tines are poorly designed. They do not interweave enough together and they do not have enough edge or angle to chop well, which makes for a bad combination. If you have any vegetation on the ground it will get wrapped around the axle in between the tines and especially over the center housing, building a mass that prevents tilling down into the the soil. If you have clay or harder dirt, the tines will not grab or chop in -- they bounce off. If you press down on the unit, you can help this defect some (hence, a grippng pad on the shaft should be provided). Another design issue is the central gear housing. The housing is pretty machined aluminum -- strong and light. However, a plate sticks out between the tines on the bottom, that is only exceeded by one inch. Ironically to the top, front or back, the housing is tight and gives the tines 2-3 inches of clearance (which would be great), but on the bottom where you work your dirt there is only one available inch. Now, if you clear your vegetation and pre-work your soil, then the Ego will work that top inch of ground. Other Ego products exceed their competition's capabilities -- not this tiller. Ego has not put the same level of engineering into this product the edger, chainsaws, blowers, hedge and grass trimmers received. It seems rushed to fill a product line gap. It has the power, but that's it. It needs stronger, longer, better designed tines, a less intrusive housing, and better ergonomics. For it's capabilities, this unit would be rated higher if about $60-70 less. At the current cost, it in no way rivals even a small dedicated tiller like a Mantis.
