Scotts Outdoor is one of the best power tool manufacturers for the outdoor space. This is evident in its TC701135S electric tiller that works as a cultivator too. Many users will agree that this aspect makes it the best electric tiller for the money. Since it can also cultivate, it saves you the cost of purchasing a cultivator. It is space-saving too as you will have a multi-tasking machine. The design is simple and easy to assemble. The manufacturer describes its assembly as tool-free which is excellent especially to people who hate putting stuff together.


  • Lightweight construction
  • 2-in-1 design
  • Adjustable tilling width
  • More durable steel alloy tines
  • Flappable transport wheels
  • Safety features

Powerful 13.5Amp Motor

The best small electric garden tillers will have a motor with 6.5 to 9Amp. This is reasonable for their recommended areas. However, for a unit that will work on middle size to large spaces, the motor has to be powerful. This is what is in this small tiller. A 13.5Amp motor is extremely powerful to propel the steel tines into cultivating or tilling the ground.

Coverage Area

Nothing beats the convenience and efficiency of a garden tiller that has adjustable working widths. It saves you working time and energy. The garden tiller can work on a width of 11’’ to 16’’. Its cutting depth is constant at 8’’.

Ergonomics and Mobility

We find this the best front tine tiller for the money because of the flappable transport wheels. You can flip them up when you want to till uneven surfaces and down when you are moving the tiller to and from the working area. The handle is very ergonomic for full functionality and comfort. You can adjust to a height that feels comfortable.

Safety Features

The push start button allows you the machine to operate when you press it. This helps to conserve energy and prevent accidents. It comes with a cord retention hook to secure the cord to the handlebars and ensure safety as you work.


Scotts designs the tines from an alloy of steel. Chemistry explains that alloys of metals are more functional and durable than pure metals. This is the reason why the six steel tines on this tiller don’t rust, corrode, break, or angle despite exposing them to the most brutal working or storage conditions. They are responsible for the proper pulverization of the ground during tilling or cultivation.

Technical Features

  • 8’’ cutting depth
  • 11 to 16’’ cutting width
  • 6 steel alloy tines
  • Push start button
  • Cord retention hook
  • 6’’ flappable wheel
  • 5Amp motor
  • 30 pounds
