Black & Decker Cultivator

b&d_cultivator.jpgWe just heard about this little garden tool and thought it was worth a mention. It's called the Cultivator and it looks like a nice item for someone with a small garden and no interest in hand-tilling.

The 18-Volt tool is setup like a string trimmer, but instead of a cutter at the end, it has two oscillating tines that are capable of turning soil and rooting up weeds. The tines can be removed if you find yourself in a cramped space where only one can fit. The Cultivator can turn soil up to four inches in depth and is capable of cutting a path seven inches wide. It also has a telescoping handle.

The reviews over at Amazon are all very positive. People seem to agree that the tool is lightweight, powerful, and has a long lasting battery.

The Cultivator comes with a battery and a charger and sells for just a hair under $100.

I bought this item and tried it on my garden. My garden was tilled and planted two weeks ago. I wanted to weed between the rows. I didn't leave enough room for my tiller so I bought this in hopes of having a usefull weeding tool. Well, it did nothing. I pulled the trigger, placed it on the ground and it would either ratchet or get clogged with a clod of dirt. After trying two days in a row, I took it back and bought a tool that would turn instead of oscilate. This tool would be usefull in a small bed with mulch, but it is no match for dirt.
