- Almost Perfect Review by Robert K
Value Quality Price
My actual star rating would be a 4.8, if I could list decimals, but I gave a 5 star rating, because this is close enough.
When you receive the tiller, you have to attach the handle with one bolt and one nut, which is NOT a problem at all. ... What makes this NOT perfect is that the joint where the handle shaft attaches to the main shaft (by means of this nut and bolt) has about a quarter inch of play between the handle and main shaft, in the circular direction of the twisting. ... In other words, the connection of the handle to the main shaft does NOT have a rock-solid, immovable feel that a welded joint or a solid continuous form would have. ... With the sort of torquing forces that I apply to this tool, in the tough situations where I use such tools, I would prefer absolute stability between handle and main shaft, because I feel that a bit of energy is wasted on each twist, and added all together with the hundreds of twists that a person is likely to do, this adds up to notable wasted torque, as well as extra jiggling impact forces sheering across that bolt.
Otherwise, the shaft is of sufficient diameter to endure the forces on it, ... the handle is ergonomically intelligent, with rubber grips for a solid, non-sliding grip, ... the outer prongs are nice and long, ...the inner prongs are intelligently shorter to apply some extra ground tearing at the middle of the digging stroke, ... and the material is all steel, no plastic, which promises to be durable.
I just received the tool today in the mail, and so I have not tried it out yet, but it looks pretty good.

- A very superior tool. Review by Diane Fagerberg
Price Value Quality
Far superior to any other, like Yard Butler or Garden Weasel. Please always keep this on the market. I may never wear it out, but I still may want more if I can find more people to help with my work. The curved handlebars and extra center tines are what makes this product stand out.

I was using this on my 8'x 16' garden. Good for turning over loose soil and break large clumps from the ground.

- Works great Review by Geezer
Quality Price Value
I was using this on a 20' square area and it was wearing me out. I then starting going right and left and got into a rhythm and it was easier than going in one direction. It is definitely easier than using a hoe for bare areas that need reseeding. Don't try to go to deep.
