No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought this after my other brand cultivator could go no longer (after many years). With an electric start I thought this one would be that much better. Wrong. I got about 6 months of ownership, mostly sitting in the garage out of it before overhauls needed. Battery never holds a charge, even when new. All fuel lines and priming bulb totally disentigrated in less than a year. You have to remove the fuel tank just to replace the priming bulb! It's an odd size to boot. One of the bolts that hold the fuel tank in place is nearly impossible to remove without a sheet metal thin open end wrench (metric). Gas tank cap threads are mismatched. Once it does crank, engine stalls under light load. No other attachments available such as dethatcher or edger. Save your money and buy anything else.
Cons: Limited Features, Not Durable

I charged my tiller as required and the electric start didn't work, so I primed and tried the pull start, and after exhausting myself, put it back in the garage. i put it back on charge and will try again tomorrow. if it doesn't work tomorrow, I will return it.

No, I do not recommend this product.
"Partial assembly" can often be more of a problem than anticipated and I found that the directions were not well written and the drawings were of poor quality. After putting it together, connecting the electric starter, and fueling with a 50:1 oil: gas mixture I put it to the test getting our flower garden ready for planting. However the 2nd time out after an hour of tilling, the tines quit turning even though the motor was functioning. Not sure if clutch spring broke. Next day engine would not start so we decided to send it back to manufacturer.

No, I do not recommend this product.
This is the 2nd year of ownership for this cultivator. When we initially got it the gas cap was broken so they promptly sent another one. After 6 months the battery start no longer functions, The battery will not charge. This year we just sent in an order for new tines as these are flattened. The cost for new tines or any parts for this cultivator are prohibitively expensive (83.25 for new tines) . All in all it digs well but, the cost of parts in the long haul and the non functional battery make this a mediocre cultivator.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Powerful, Light Weight, Easy to Store, service from the company is good within warranty, a little heavier than most so it digs better
Cons: Not Durable, battery dies prematurely, tines are cheap and wear out fast

This little cultivator worked great for me for about 5 years, including tilling "virgin soil" where a lawn was. No issues with it..ever. Until someone stole mine a couple weeks ago out of my garden shed!
Pros: Good Size & Weight, Powerful

Used this as soon as the battery was charged. The electric start is a great feature no more tugging & exhausting myself before I start my work.
