Earthwise TC70001 is one of the most sought after tillers on the market and is used by thousands. Given its reasonable price and the value for money it offers, it is undoubtedly one of the best of its kind on the market. In this Earthwise TC70001 review, I have highlighted the main features of the product, its ease of use and other factors.
The Earthwise TC70001 is an electric tiller/cultivator that has an 11 inch cutting width. The power consumption specifications of this product are as follows:
120 volt, 60 hertz and 8 and half ampere.
The device comes with a 2 year warranty. The device is pretty easy to use. All you have to do is to push the button and get it started. If you are looking for a tiller that you intend to use in your small garden for loosening soil and prepare it for planting. It will even crush down medium sized rocks into small pieces.
Earthwise TC70001 Design
The device has a 8-1/2 inches cutting depth and also sports a dual 4 blade steel tines. The product is quite sturdy and the handle is pretty symmetrically aligned to facilitate for you a very comfy grip. The handle is pretty good and you would feel pretty much like polacing your hands on a vehicle steering wheel.
You can quite easily raise the wheel and lower them without any other tools. Earthwise TC70001 works great in normal soil and would give no problems while grabbing the handle and lifting it. In harder clay sod that hasn’t been planted ever, you would need to give some more time and effort.
Earthwise TC70001 Review: What to do if you have rock jammed in the tines
There is no reverse in Earthwise TC70001 so you might have to stop instantly if you get a rock jammed between the tines. In such cases, don’t try to force the stopped motor or you might damage its parts. If you see the bolt is bent or the threads are mashed, it would be best to replace the bolt the nylon locking nut.
Earthwise TC70001 Performance
Earthwise TC70001 has an excellent performance. Even after hours of tilling the sod, the device will maintain its speed. Also, another good thing is that the Earthwise TC70001 doesn’t make unpleasant sounds. The tillers in Earthwise TC70001 have a gap in the middle in place where the gearbox is; therefore cross tilling or overlap tiling is best advised. However, as the device is pretty light, you can move it gently from side to side and till little strips as you move.
Earthwise TC70001 Tiller Review: Tips for digging
The best way to use the tiller would be to dig in towards the end of the row that you want to till and then muscling it backwards. That way, you would get the best performance from it. Once you jam your blades into the ground, you can back up as they will tend to go deep. The device also comes with a cord gizmo; you can tie their two cord ends together to keep them from coming apart. You might get long grass and roots wrapped around the blade shafts, to be specific between the gearbox and the inner blade on each side. However, this can depend on the way you use it and you may not get any grass or roots at all. If you have read other Earthwise TC70001 reviews on the internet, you must have heard about people complaining about this but really, but it really doesn’t overshadow the performance of this device.
Earthwise TC70001 is a really great tiller for your home. If you have a small garden, flower beds or other small areas that need tilling, this device would be the best for you. If you have a whole big yard, this product wouldn’t be that suitable. But for a small sized garden, it does the best. I hope I have covered the main points in this Earthwise TC70001 review.
