Best tiller
I am an older woman and I bought this for my own person use. Not only does it help the environment, but it's light weight makes it easy for me to use it. But don't let the weight fool you, it works better than any other big tiller I have used. Also it works without the noise of the gas tillers. I would recommend it and many other products I've gotten from SunJoe.

Easy To Use
Surprising Work Horse
A one day rental exceeding sixty dollars sent me on a search for an affordable small tiller if such a thing existed. I found a few different names in electric tillers. Sun Joe provided the highest amp rating at 12 amp. With electric motors there is no standard for HP rating, the amperage is the true power rating and if I was going electric, I was going for the highest amperage. I then start reading the reviews which there are many, all very favorable. I purchased through Tyler Tool achieving the best price anywhere. Being drop shipped from the manufacturers warehouse wasn't the fastest way to get it but the savings was worth the wait. Upon receiving it I put it to work. I was prepared to control the feed speed to the ability of the electric motor and soon found that this thing will chew up anything you feed it as hard and fast as I had strength to hold onto it. It easily broke through the sod, chucked up any stone, turned up clay, not even tree roots would stop or slow it down. It even cut through some smaller tree roots. The large pistol grip handles are a must for this work horse. Way better than a slight bend in the tube with a thin foam covering. Six tines rather than four makes short work of larger areas. The Sun Joe will store easily for all future use without the issues of a gas engine sitting for long periods. The quality and design of this tool makes it a work horse not a cheap tool yet it is one of the most affordable. I have plenty of heavy gauge extension chords. I used it with a 100 foot 12 gauge extension chord with no issues.

wow what a litttle work horse!!!
This is the first tiller I have ever purchased and the the first SNOW JOE/SUN JOE Product I have ever purchased and I have to say what a little brut of a machine.I live in Connecticut and it seems no matter where you put a shovel into the ground you hit one rock or a ton of them and the ground is so compact we have a lot of clay in my area .The area where I put in a garden is very clay and hard compact soil but this machine went at it like a bull dog !!! what a product -so good to purchase something that works like it should !! Can't say enough about this tiller it's the best 16 in. 12 amp model TJ603E I have purchased !!!

Had a really old tiller, really heavy, didn't really think this would work being so cheap, but, it does. Planted my garden with tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. The best part was it was so light and easy to handle. Best thing I ever bought

Blew me away!
Didn't expect too much from e!ectric tiller but only had a 20x40 flowerbed to do so thought what the heck. Put it together in 5 minutes. 4 bolts and wingnuts. Flowerbed was never turned in the four years I lived here. Wanted to start over. Plugged it in, hit the button and we tore that bed up in 30 minutes. This thing just blew me away. Used to have a gas tiller and this has just as much power as it did. Just use a cord rated for 12 amps and you have plenty of power. No overheating. Just pull it backwards toward you and it will DIG! Will check sunjoe for more products as needed. Do need a pressure washer. Will check it out.

being an older gentleman the gas tillers are too heavy and continue to pull even after trying to stop. My Sun Joe is excellant for me and tills down to six inches with ease.

Great Buy
Had a bobcat doing some work in my front yard. After about 6 hours my grass was gone and the dirt was packed down hard..I checked out many tillers and decided on this one. .Good reviews , price was great and the size was good. My son came over to help. He said this is electric and you need a gas tiller , this will not work. Well he got it done and was really surprised how well it worked! good buy he said ,that was easier than I thought. I now have grass and so happy I decided on this tiller. this is a powerful little machine!
