(Why don't we show the price?)

Retailers have the legal right to set their own prices, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be communicated. Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer's “minimum advertised price,” the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price until you place the item in your cart, or in some cases, proceeding to the final checkout stage. Taking these steps allows Appliances Connection to show you our price consistent with our goal of always offering you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products. You are not required to purchase the product to see our lowest price, simply just remove it from your cart.

Want one, have ours, still looks brand new!

By  from Des Moines, IA, United States
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 1

Worst tool I ever bought, should have listened to my wife. We purchased this tool in July of 2013 after the planting season so only use for a quick 5 minute test. The next spring when we tried to use it it would not run so we tried to return it to Home Depot. They tested it in their shop & it ran fine so we took it home. It would not break the top crust of our tomatoe bed so we put it back on it's hook in the garage. After having this tool for 4 springs it still looks brand new because we have never been able to get it to cultivate any type of soil or prepare a seed bed & we are ready to throw it in the garbage.

No Good

The TJ599E Tiller lasted about 10ft before the blades stopped spinning. Motor still works but this is just a door stop now.

Great litttle tiller

By  from Grand Rapids, MI
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

Tilled a 5'-10' depth area all the way around my house for newly planted bushes. Worked better than expected. More powerful than I imagined. Works best in dirt as it had a little trouble with clay, although after a few passes thru the clay, it eventually chewed it up. Could have a little more clearance between the tines and the shroud. Overall, I was impressed. No problem with overheating.

Best garden investment I've ever made.

By  from Hampstead, MD
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

Tilled my 8x8 garden plot in 20 minutes or less. Left there and headed to my herb garden. The Aardvark was small enough to get in and around my herb plants. I am a 5' female and had little to no problem using this gardening tool. Loved the ergonomical handle. My shovel is more or less out of work in the gardening dept. Thanks Sun Joe

Review from Canada

By  from Kincardine, Ontario
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

Pros: 1. It's electric, so no muss or fuss with gas or oil. 2. It's very quiet compared to my last little cultivator. 3. It works very well in my beautiful garden soil. Con's: 1. It takes 2 hands to hold the button in so that I can press the handle to engage the motor. Also, the back and forth tilling of the soil is problematic, in that there is a point at which my grip is not naturally firm, and it stops when the handle is not held firmly - taking both hands to restart. 2. It picks up rocks (generic to most cultivators) and refuses to engage until the rock is manually removed. Not very useful for rocky soil.
