Planting season is a great time of year – nothing but potential for your garden. The VonHaus Electric Garden Tiller is a great tool to help your garden reach its fullest potential. Tilling your garden before you plant offers several advantages. It breaks up hard ground and makes it easier for water to reach the roots of your plants. This lightweight, powerful and versatile tiller helps you makes your garden the ideal place for your flowers or vegetables to grow.
Before you can till your garden with this cultivator, you need to put it together. The user manual provides step-by-step instructions, and there are only a few wing nuts and bolts for you to attach. You can tighten each of these by hand; no tools are needed. If you follow the instructions, it shouldn't take more than a few minutes to assemble this electric garden cultivator.
This garden tiller has a 15-inch power cable. Even though this is a longer cord than most of the products on our lineup, you'll still need to use an extension cable to plug it in to an outlet. As with all electric tillers, you need to take care not to slice your cord when the machine's tines are turning.
As far as tillers in this price-range go, this is one of the lightest. Weighing only 20.7 pounds, anyone should be able to use this tiller. It has four robust steel tines that cut 8.6 inches deep and 12.5 inches wide. These tines plus the 850-watt motor are great for breaking up fresh or hard, compacted soil.
One of the more unique features of this rototiller is its emergency kill switch that allows you to quickly shut the machine off. This is useful if you hit a large rock or the tines get stuck in wet dirt – it helps prevent the tines from being damaged. It's also a handy feature if you have kids running around in the yard and you're likely to get interrupted during your work.
The VonHaus Electric Garden Tiller is a powerful, lightweight and affordable electric tiller that can save you hours of time by breaking up the soil in your vegetable garden or dethatching your flower beds so you have the garden of your dreams.
