Sun Joe Lithium-Ion 40-volt 12-inch Cordless Tiller Cultivator
Initially, I thought of the Sun Joe Cordless Tiller Cultivator as a novelty item with the limited broad appeal. However, after testing it for a couple of weeks, I’m a huge fan…for all of the reasons I listed above. This will become my “go to” cultivator for my raised garden beds because it’s light and so easy to use. It makes me feel great that I can get my garden in shape without using gasoline or be polluting the environment.
Here’s what I liked about it:
- It’s very light, maneuverable, and compact, making it ideal for anyone with a smaller garden or limited storage space (the fold-down handles are a plus!)
- It’s the quietest cordless tool I’ve seen…or, rather, heard, making it great for those living with neighbors nearby or with strict noise pollution standards
- It’s got sharp blades and enough ummph to turn hard soil into something your plants would be proud to grow in
- It’s easy to use. I mean EASY.
- It runs on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (no fumes, no gas/oil spills, no remembering if it’s a 2-cycle engine requiring a pre-mix, no draining oil/gas at the end of each season, no gummed up motor come Spring…you get the idea)
- It’s “green”, meaning I can take care of my garden AND reduce my carbon footprint at the same time
- It’s damn cute. At first, I thought it looked more like a toy more than a serious tool, and pushing it around made me feel I had entered the Gulliver’s Travels of the garden kingdom. But I love the paradox … Even though it’s small in stature, it’s big on performance and fit well in my hands and in my garden.
