    Easy to put together
    I haven't used this yet because my garden is still growing. It was easy to put together by myself and it certainly appears to be sturdy. I especially like it's compact size.

    I expected the electric tiller to be easy to operate and it was, from the assembly to the push of the button. I was impressed with the power of the 13 amp motor as I tilled well established lawn for a new garden. After encountering a number of small rocks in my hour of tilling, the tines were as good as new, no bending or dents.

    Plenty of power
    I used this tiller for leveling ground to place stepping stones on. It has plenty of power, more than any small tiller I have used in the past, the tines turn very rapidly & did not get tangled in grass like slower tillers will. It is very easy to setup & store. Very pleased.

    Great Electric Tiller!!
    I was very skeptical about purchasing an "electric" rototiller but the reviews looked pretty good for this tiller so I went ahead and purchased the tiller. WOW-all skepticism is GONE. We have a 15'X25' garden that had not been tilled for over 3yrs. I was absolutely amazed at the power this tiller performed with. It completely tilled the whole garden in under 30 minutes. A gas tiller could not have done a better job! I am thinking about getting the "electric" lawn mower after seeing how this tiller performed. If you want a GREAT tiller and don't want to deal with the noise, gas etc. you'll want to get this tiller. Very pleased with the performance of this tiller.

    I was surprised at how well this 9 amp electric tiller preformed. I owned a four cycle gas hand tiller and it didn't do as good a job as the Tiller Joe electric teller. Tiller Joe is lighter but digs deeper. Great little machine.

    I purchased this about a month ago. I have been using it to till sandy soil in my yard that is full of rocks. It tills up the smaller rocks and bounces off bigger rocks that would ruin a heavier tiller. It is perfect for my needs. I look forward to tilling my garden this fall with it. It has plenty of power and tills very well. The price was also very good.

    We received our tiller today and my husband couldn't wait to till the garden. At first he was anti-joe due to the lightness of the tiller but once he tilled it for the second time, he saw the light! I love it. Light, easy to use and easy to store.

    Excellent Product
    We did have a slow start to using the tiller because the handle that came inside the sealed box had only 1 set of holes for the bolts, instead of 2 sets. After a couple of calls to Customer Service, a new handle was shipped. We put it together and have been extremely happy with its performance. Because it is electric, we till a short time, then let it cool down. But we have a big garden (0.15 acre of raised beds), and we are so far very pleased. Thanks for a great product!

    Cowboy on Apr 8, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: This tiller is actually the best option for the price.18" capacity is the largest we sell in a electric tiller.9 amps is also the higher amp option.
