I bought the Garden Weasel Garden Cultivator, because I thought it would work an inexpensive way to rototill my garden. My garden is not huge and has power lines a couple of feet below, so I wanted to avoid a rototiller that might get too deep and cut a line. Whoa, was I wrong! If you were using it to till garden made completely of loose compost, it would possibly work well. My garden soil is not that way. I wanted to use the tool for the purpose of making the soil loose. No such luck. I ended up have to dig up the dirt with my shovel. After I dug up the garden, added a lot of compost and raked it through, the Garden Weasel was finally able to make it through the soil. My husband is much stronger than I and so he had slightly better results. Nonetheless, I feel it was a waste of my money and definitely a waste of my energy. I would recommend avoiding the frustration of using this product, even if someone hands it to you for free.
