-Has a tighter center of gravity compared to some gas tillers
-Has the potential to break up roots in thickness of 2″-3″ (I personally wouldn’t try to go through those on purpose.)
-Performance is comparable to an electric tiller like the Craftsman, and you’ll be saving $200
Not practical for: -Large gardens
Like with any electric tiller such as the Earthwise TC70001, some skill is needed to master their tendency to bounce around and travel. It’s also not uncommon for weeds or roots to get tangled in the tines, that’s a notorious feature with tillers in general.
Here’s the quick demo-
Other Electric Tillers to Consider
Good- Greenworks 27012 (8 Amp): (Amazon’s price) Has an 8.25″-10″ cutting width (ideal for gardens with smaller rows to till between)
Better- Sun Joe TJ600E (6.5amp): (Amazon’s price) Weighs 8 pounds less, 3 more inches of cutting width
Best- Sun Joe TJ601E (9 Amp): (Amazon’s price) A bit more powerful motor, 7 more inches of cutting width, 2 more steel tines (better for those with a larger garden/lawn)
An excellent tool considering it’s a light tiller for gardening. If you’re located in a more southern region like Arkansas or further, you may be better off with a more powerful tiller like the TJ601E-plots of Bermuda grass and other southern lawns may not be as ideal for the TC70001.
