Straight out of the box, the Snow Joe TJ603E will require a minimal amount of setup and most people agree it is a simple process. There are only a few bolts and knobs that must be attached, but it can all be done by hand. There is no need for additional tools. Most buyers were able to put it together in less than 15 minutes.
Once assembled, this electric tiller weighs in at around 27 pounds. Its lightweight design makes it exceptionally maneuverable; however, a handful of reviewers have struggled to control the tiller when it strikes objects, like roots. Overall, it is agile enough to be able to fit between landscaping and garden rows.
At the heart of this Snow Joe model is a powerful 12 amp motor, and the generously sized rear wheels allow this tiller to be operated much like one would use a lawnmower. After it has been plugged in, the rototiller is ready to start up with the simple press of a button.
When being used, this tiller and cultivator penetrates the soil at a depth of up to 8 inches. The max width of its cutting path reaches 16 inches. This tiller boasts six durable steel tines. The angled design of the tines eliminates the need to pass over the same patch of soil multiple times to get the desired results.
The fact that this tiller is an electric model has both pros and cons.
On the plus side, it is eco-friendly. There are also no mechanical chores, like mixing oil and gasoline, to contend with.
On the downside, a person is limited in how much they can move by the length of the extension cord. Extension cords can be cumbersome and will need to be purchased separately since it is not included with the tiller. Users must also exercise caution to ensure that the extension cord does not become tangled up in the tines and damaged.
Once the hard work is finished, the tiller should be stored in a shed or garage where it will be protected from the elements. No additional maintenance is required between uses; however, Snow Joe does recommend wiping the tiller down after each use to remove dirt and debris. The handle of this unit folds down to minimize the amount of storage space it requires.
The Snow Joe TJ603E is covered by a generous 2-year warranty from the manufacturer and is one of our best rated tillers.
