The Craftsman Mini Tiller is a small cultivator that allows you to create, maintain and improve your garden. It's lightweight and gas-powered, which allows you to take it anywhere you want to cultivate your garden without being restricted by an electrical cord. It's easy to assemble, use, clean and store – anyone should be able to use this machine with very few problems.
Every garden cultivator on our lineup requires at least some assembly. The Craftsman Mini Tiller comes mostly put together. All you need to do is build the handlebars, then attach them and the wheel assembly to the main unit of the cultivator. This is all done by hand, no tools required, and it should only take you a few minutes to assemble everything once you get it out of the box.
This is a gas-powered tiller, which offers some advantages over electrical models. Electric models require that you use an extension cord and be near an electrical outlet. You can take the Craftsman Mini Tiller anywhere and not be hampered by a cord. The downside is that you can't simply pour gasoline into the tank. You must first prepare a special mixture of gas and oil for your fuel. The instructions give specific instructions on how this is done, and it's rather simple.
This rototiller breaks up hardened dirt with Triple Dig 3-in-1 tines. These tines can mulch soil up to 5 inches deep. Some of the other products on our lineup have a till depth of 8 inches. But 5 inches should be sufficient for most of your small-gardening needs. You can also adjust the tilling path from between 6 to 10 inches wide. This customization gives you a great deal of control and versatility when tilling your garden or raised beds.
Craftsman is known for making high-quality products. They stand behind this tiller with a two-year warranty. This is the average warranty length for the tillers on our lineup. As long as you keep your tiller well cleaned and maintained, it should stay in working order well past the warranty's expiration date.
There's a lot to like about the Craftsman Mini Tiller. It's easy to assemble, use and take with you. Very few gardeners are likely to be dissatisfied with this purchase.
