Ease of use & overgrown raised beds
I love this tiller. I have trouble getting a gas powered tiller started and can’t always find someone to help me. I plug it in and start it right up. I was able to till some raised beds that were 4+ years overgrown. I did do some prep weeding/breaking up so I wouldn’t have to stop & start to clean the tines so much. Small & light enough to lift and maneuver in the beds.

I like it
I really like this tiller. Has good power, and once it starts to bite, it chews. If I could change one thing, it would be adding a means to attach some extra weight to help break fresh dirt. If I could change two things, I would make the activation lever tougher

Power!
I got this one month ago and when I turned it on The first thought was I sure hope there’s a slower setting! Sure enough it was on high speed! After switching it to slow speed it did an amazing job on my flower beds we have lots of clay around here in Oregon.

Easy, functional.
Love it! Lightweight but gets the job done! No noisy or smelly gas to deal with. Works great to get into smaller areas like flower beds. Loved it so much I got one for my son and they were also very enthusiastic about the ease of putting together out of the box, and how easy it is to handle.

I loved how the cultivator worked on the dirt. It was amazing. The cultivator safety switch broke on the fourth use, so not happy and had to return to store. I had to buy another brand and bought one with a different safety switch setup.

Works well for my 4x8 garden. First tilling was a bit of a job because of the weeds that got tangled in the tines. Had to clear these out numerous times to continue. I used the high speed. Low seemed to low. Once I cleared the weeds, I ran into some small roots which were cut pretty quickly with this tiller. Other roots that were larger caught the tiller but did no damage. I had to remove those with branch trimmer. Lastly, I dumped some peat moss on the top and tilled that in. So nice to be able to just plug in a go. No hassle with gas, oil, spark plug, carb adjustments, etc .....
