Black & Decker have gone and done it a again. Creating one of the very best electric battery powered tillers. It’s a beast of a machine that will cultivate at 86 feet/pound of torque.

For running on battery this torque is impressive but that;s not the only impressive thing. Not only will you get the best torque of any battery powered cultivator around but you will enjoy its ergonomic design and comfort of use.

It has an adjustable handle height for taller and shorter people to be more comfortable while operating. Adding to this the handle is soft-grip so that when in use you can cultivate for longer without your hands pressing against hard metal or plastic.

The tine (depth of cultivation) is easily adjusted to three different heights and also the width is adjustable from 6 inch to 10-inch, helping to till narrower and wider areas.

It is of sturdy build with nice strong wheels and the 36-volt battery will last for tilling around 450sq ft. If you need more than this it’s as easy as having spare batteries charged as the battery will lift in and out for charging and portability.

For a battery powered tiller you won’t go wrong choosing the Black & Decker CTL36 though always be aware that battery powered tillers are not as powerful as corded or gas powered options.
