Boasting Triple-Dig™ 3-in-1 tines, the Craftsman 120V electric mini tiller is great for cultivating soil, tilling harder soil and for most root cutting to avoid tangles. A 6.5 Amp 120-Volt electric double-insulated motor makes for the perfect green gardening solution – enjoy no gas, no emissions and quieter, cleaner performance than gas-powered engines.

I bought this tiller at a local store after reading good reviews but had reservations when I saw how small it was. Needn't have worried! This is far better than a gas powered Mantis I own and even superior to the electric Mantis I used last year. I'm a 70 year old woman and found this amazingly easy to use on my previously tilled soil ... no bouncing out of control, digs right in with ease and did everything I needed . And when it caught a rock and stalled out, my heart sank thinking I'd burned the motor out but no - it has an auto shut-off and came right back online when I cleared the stone out and pressed the re-set button! Don't hesitate to buy this one - it's tough , dependable and easy to use - AND I didn't have to stop it every few minutes to clear weeds from the tines (it's very well-designed and engineered).
Being a senior citizen, I needed something that I could operate. This has worked out fine and fits my needs.

Pleased so far but have only used it once. Was fast and did what I wanted it to do. The wheels could be about two inches wider to give the tiller a little bit more stability.
I did not think an electric tiller would be powerful enough. I was pleasantly surprised. In fact minutes into using this item I decided to expanded the garden this year. It goes through previously worked ground with little effort, grass a little slower and high weed will clog it fast. Electric starts every time and i don't need to change oil or spark plug at the end of the season.
My only experience with tillers were the ones my dad had as a kid when I had little interest in gardening. What I remember was my dad having big gas tillers that made easy work of the ground. I wasn't sure if this electric tiller would do a good job then, but I have been pleasantly surprised so far. It has a good amount of power and it does a good job of turning over the soil and even some grass and plant matter. Based on my limited experience, I would recommend this item to others.
Very impressed with the power of this electric tiller. I could control this tiller not like a huge monster tiller that controls you and will shut off when I hit roots and turned my garden very well!! After viewing online for couple years I wish I had purchased sooner!
Purchased on sale $200 and was skeptical that something so small would be of much use. Boy was I wrong, it has just enought weight, the tines are plentiful/sharp and the on/off switch is great for control. It was light weight but at the same time very sturdy. After stripping off the turf it ripped thru hard virgin background dirt to create a garden in about an hour. Was a cakewalk thru existing flower beds and around shrubbery. Wow, really impressed that such a compact electric tiller could almost do as well as a huge unruly gas powered one (been there done that). For light to moderate lawn/gardening this is the tiller for you.
