Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5★by 178reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★by One Great Tiller! After using gas-powered tillers for several years, I did not have any great expectations for the Earthwise Electric Tiller. However, it has proven me wrong. This has to be one of the best items I have ever bought. It is tough. It tills deep, even in rocky shale ground. It is light-weight. It is absolutely awesome. I would not only recommend this tiller to anyone, but I would have bought a second one. Alas, it is no longer listed on Wal-mart's website. 04/06/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★by Nice lightweight tiller Tiller works best when pulling it towards you. I have used it in my flower and vegetable gardens without any problems . I am only 5 ft. tall and find the tiller easy to use and lightweight. 08/22/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★by Good Tiller, Great Value I ordered the Earthwise Corded 8.5-Amp Tiller and Cultivator at and picked it up at my local store with site-to-store. It took just a few minutes to assemble the few parts of the tiller that are not assembled at the factory (so it can fit in a smaller box). I used the tiller to till a 15' x 19' garden. This tiller did a great job of tilling the garden and I could not expect it to perform any better than it did. I have only used it once so far and can not speak to the longevity of this tiller but have no reason to think it won't last. Page 4 of the User Manual shows "generic" information in reference to extension cord lengths. According to this information the extension cord requirements for this tiller are as follows: 0-25 feet at minimum 18 awg, 26-50 feet at minimum 16 awg, 51-100 feet at minimum 14 awg, 101-150 feet at minimum 12 awg. 06/12/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★by Easy to assemble, very light weight, my wife can carry with one hand by the motor mounted handle and it has plenty of power. Tills this drought hardened ground with no problems. Perfect for small gardens and flower beds. This is an extraordinary value. 09/07/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★by Very good value The unit’s fit and finish exceeded my expectations, especially considering the cost. Also, the owner’s manual contains all the necessary information for assembly, maintenance, and operation.Assembly - 5/5I’m not real handy. Perhaps that makes me a traitor to my Y chromosome, but the harder I try to fix things, the worse they get. In this case, I read the included instructions twice, then reread them step-by-step and checked the included illustrations during assembly. The trickiest part was installing the included transmission case lubricant. Their instruction manual made assembly easy and fast.I recommend paying close attention to removing and replacing the two drain bolts on the transmission case. They use a 5-millimeter Allen wrench (included). The bolts were stuck in there pretty well. Forcing them risks stripping the bolt, and will require removing the entire transmission case to drill it out. Finger-tighten the bolts when replacing to avoid stripping the threads. (I stripped an oil pan decades ago on my Plymouth Duster, so I know what a bother that can be.) I also saved the included oil dispenser bottle: The plugs reside behind the tines, so its funnel attachment will come in handy when I have to replace the oil.Dry Turf - 3/5If you go slow, and there are no buried rocks or tree roots, you can use this to break up dry turf. I had an area of mixed weeds and Bermuda grass that had been sitting in our fall drought for weeks: hard and dry. At first, the tiller scuffed along the top. With a little patience, it finally dug in. I would let the tiller sink in from its own weight and move forward perhaps 1-2 feet, then slowly pull it back. To go deeper, repeat this process over the same area. Then I would guide the tiller over one width of the tines and begin on the next spot. In this manner, I tilled an area of about 2X10 feet in about 10 minutes.If I hit a buried rock, the tiller bounced. These attributes reinforce the need to not force things. Let the tiller’s own weight determine how deep and fast it can go. It got down to a depth of about six inches. I supposed I could have gone deeper, but I was concerned about rocks, being as I’ve been gradually working this back yard for years: It used to be some bohunk’s personal dump. To reach a reasonable planting depth, I still needed a shovel and garden fork to create new beds.The directions say you should retract the wheels and lock them in the “up” position before tilling. When working dry turf, I recommend keeping the wheels down. This gives you more leverage, as the machine’s weight will only be pressing into the soil when you tilt it forwards off the wheels. I let the machine tilt forward slowly, so I could tilt it back quickly if it felt like I struck a rock.Moistened Turf 4/5The tiller performed better when I watered the turf 2-3 times before cultivation. I was able to till a larger area in the same amount of time I spent on the dry turf area, and was able to go deeper.Existing Garden Bed - 5/5This was the most important reason I bought a tiller. As I age, hand turning compost into growing beds is getting to be more challenging. The tiller almost worked too well, digging in very deep and churning compost and soil into a consistent mix. I had to lift the tiller up slightly in order to keep it moving.I used to dig and turn with a garden fork, and then rake the bed into a slight hump. After tilling, I had more raking to do than before, but that wasn’t a problem because of how well the soil/compost/manure was aggregated. I’m very happy with the outcome.On the second bed, I found I had more control over tilling by keeping the wheels down. It still went deep enough, but didn’t make a much mess as when I retracted the wheels. As with turf, the wheels helped keep better control during tilling.Soil That Was Previously Loosened - 5/5The second most important reason I bought a tiller is for weed control around my growing beds. In the side area, I have three vegetable beds with pathways between them. It’s always been a hassle hoeing to keep weeds down. About a month ago, I loosened these pathways with the garden fork. Before I could get back and pull weeds, our lawn guy came and wacked them, leaving me nothing to grab onto.I used the tiller to churn up the pathways. It completely loosened the remaining weed roots. I then raked the soil level. The rake picked up most of the remaining weeds and roots, which I put into the compost pile. The tiller has made pathway maintenance 90% easier. Again, I kept the wheels down, because I only wanted to till maybe the top four inches. Wheels up means the machine’s weight would have pushed it too deep.Cleaning After Use - 4/5Bermuda grass stolons and rhizomes wound around the drive shaft between the transmission case and inner tine. It’s not necessary to remove the tines to clear this material. First, I lay the tiller on its side. Then, using a narrow-tipped set of garden shears, I was able to cut through the rhizomes and stolons and pull them out. In my experience, this is more efficient than disassembly, and avoids stripping threads and other possible damage.Conclusion - 4/5From my experience, I think EarthWise is a reputable company providing good value for the price, and should definitely be on your short list. 12/07/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★by Mighty little tiller! I had a 10'x20' raised zen (rock) garden in the backyard, that I dug out and converted into vegetable garden. I needed a small tiller to break up the soil and for tilling future plantings, and based on research and reviews went with this Earthwise electric tiller.I must say I was surprised when it arrived in a tiny 2'x2' box, and after assembling it was quite surprised how small it was. I wasn't sure this puny thing was going to cut it. However, after spending the afternoon tilling my new garden with this thing, I was impressed. This thing tore right into our hard Arizona clay soil with no problems, and easily dug 6 inches right into it breaking it up. Within 2 hours I had the 10'x20' area nicely tilled, including adding a layer of compost and mulching that in as well.Overall, it was perfect for my raised garden. Small and light, easy to manuever, and plenty of power to churn up tough ground. 10/08/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★by Great little tiller I bought this electric tiller because the gas tiller I previously owned died and I no longer wanted to be bothered with gas and oil purchases and the difficulties I had getting it started. I LOVE THIS MACHINE! Initially I only planned on tilling up my flower beds and still paying somone to till up my back yard so that I could reseed this Fall. However, it works so well, I tilled up the yard myself - it went through my Georgia clay very well. I followed instructionos of another reivewer who said it works best pulling back to you, and that is very true. It will dig deeper when pulled back to you. I did have to clean out the weeds caught in it a few times - had to do that we the gas tiller as well though, so that was fine. Assembly was easy, though initially a bit confusing (my daughter helped - she loves to read instructions...) It came with gear oil - which, if you read the instructions you will see that you do not need in the first two years... It is light weight and easy to carry and a little powerhouse that does not break the bank! Enjoy! 09/28/2012
Rated 3 out of 5★by one in a million I guess it was just the luck of the draw - but I have had a bad experience with this tiller. I worked with it for all of 10 minutes and all seemed to be going well when it started making a ferocious grinding noise. Thinking that something like an unseen root had tangled up in the tines, I pulled it out and took a look. Nothing. I tried to turn it on again but the tines did not move and white smoke boiled out of the engine. I waited for about an hour and tried it again, but still nothing - the motor had seized up.So, I now have gone online to see about getting it replaced, well they are now out of stock! So yes, so far I have had a wonderful experience with this thing. When it was working - for that whole 10 minutes - it worked very well, so what can I say except there are more good reviews than bad, so it is your choice. 03/12/2013
