13.5 Amp 16" Electric Cultivator
13.5 Amp 16" Electric Cultivator is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 137.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tool Bought this a month ago. Was going to rent one but for about 100 dollars more or so, I can have one for future use. People said get gas because it is powerful. But honestly this was strong enough and durable enough to do what i needed. I used this on an area about 700 square feet or so give or take 100 feet. It worked great. Problem was plug disconnects every now and then so if ryobi can creat something to keep it together that would be great. Otherwise I cant complain

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and easy to use we bought this to loosen up our ground in order to replant grass seed. Our lawn had died off due to the drought and we needed to break up the dry hard ground. We did have to water first and let it sit overnight but then the tiller worked great for what we wanted and it was easy to use. At our age we did not feel we could handle a full size tiller so we bought this one. For what we used it for it worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cultivator for small projects. I bought this cultivator to create a small vegetable garden and not only did it handle that job, it also tilled up 20 sqft of hard solid for our above ground pool! Easy to set up, easy to use and easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done I bought this to redo sections of my lawn. It is powerful enough to handle various types of soil. Harder patches do fight back, causing the tiller to "bounce" but if you are patient enough, leaving it in one place will get the job done. Still mich easier than doing things by hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tiller I used this tiller to loosen up the dirt before laying some stepping stones down in my backyard. It works great and is very powerful. It’s fairly easy to assemble and easy to use. I recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tiller to work in small spaces. I needed a small tiller to work in some of my small areas of the garden and I bought the 13.6 16 inch electric tiller. It does a great job in getting between my tomatoes and pepper. I opted for the electric versus a battery powered unit and I have not been disappointed. It not only is great for raised beds but in my regular garden space. Anyone that is looking for a mini tiller with all the muscle that you need this is the one. The Ryobi tiller is a back saver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install. I bought this *brand-new* still in the box from a pawnshop. It has power, kicks a good amount of rocks up, and doesn’t feel like a toy at all. No, this roto-tiller is great for the garden or, what I’m using it for in a small side yard-replacing rock scape with grass. Four stars? Well, it is a bit lighter than heavy-duty, causing it to bounce *a little farther off-course* than the heavier, more expensive type. Good tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great width and it's adjustable We bought this to till our small garden. It has more power and a wider width than our old Craftsman corded tiller. Worked great and doesn't take up much space to store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for small jobs! I picked this up as a tool to help me build and maintain a few small flower and vegetable gardens. It has done everything I have asked of it. A small yard enables me to always be within reach of an electrical outlet. Light and maneuverable and easy to store. Really liking my purchase
