I am a 65 year old grandmother who likes to do her own work and will tackle most projects. After painting my house, my next project was tilling my front "lawn" (tough weeds and dead grass) and getting rid of 90% of it so that I can re-seed. I knew I couldn't dig it up by myself so I shopped around for a tiller. On a limited retiree's budget, I had to shop economically and pray that I wouldn't be buying junk. Oh how delighted I am with my Earthwise Tiller!!! It's an exceptional value at a pretty modest price. It was easy for me, a grannie, to assemble the handle pieces and it's super easy to use! Not too much for me to handle but packed with power to do the job I need! I am very happy that took a chance and bought the Earthwise. It's an amazing little machine!

I shopped locally in Houston at several home centers, but was unable to find an electric tiller to my liking & in my price range. I recently injured my back, so I was not interested in a gasoline powered version that would have been very heavy. Also, I checked locally to rent a tiller, but they only had gas models, so the weight & the cost were both issues. They wanted about 50% of what I paid for the TC70001 for 1/2 day's rental, so I decided to purchase. After I receiver my Earthwise tiller, I assembled it in less than 30 minutes & used it to prepare my garden for the current planting season. Having never used it before, it was very easy to use and quite effective for my relatively small (120 sq-ft) back yard garden. I was done in about one hour total, including the assembly. After I use it this fall, I will break even on the cost of having rented the one I considered just 2 times. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has easy access to electrical connections in their garden area. It's powerful in use & easy to transport to/from the garden area with the flip-down wheels.

Tiller is easy to use but the electric cord can at times get in the way. The hook is not very effective. It turns the soil very effectively and not too noisey - at least in the first use. It is very powerful and you must pay attention and maintain a firm hold. Delivery was good and assembly was easy.

Love this tiller/cultivator! It is easy to use, move and does an excellent job of turning hard soil into fine silt. A BIG plus is that this tiller/cultivator easily kicks out small stones and small fist sized rocks.
This is perfect for what I am looking for. Mid size garden in the back yard and single, so no string pulling to start, I love it. Battery outlasts my energy, so ample time to recharge during my rests. More power than you would expect for a battery. Not hard to put together at all. Would buy again.
Looked fine out of the box. Was excited to try it. Read the manual. Good to go!! Top arm creased within the first five minutes of use. Within an hour smoke issues from the crank case and the unit trips out on a thermal. Allowed a cool down and restarted. Ran for ten minutes and smoked again. Being the inquiring sort, dismantled to see what was going wrong....crankcase seal burnt up, oil contaminated by dirt, I now own a $120 box of scrap metal. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING MORE THAN A SMALL FRESHLY TILLED AND CLEARED AREA TO PLANT. TOTAL JUNK>
Thought something this small wouldn't be able to tackle backyard. It has done a great job. In past we rented a BIG tiller and had to do all the work in one day. As we have gotten older this smaller one is less than renting the larger one for 2 days. Gives us time to do it right. Am very happy with purchase.
