I think the cultivator is very helpful and used as designed, can help a home gardener a lot. However, the 45 min. max usage is frustrating followed by a 9 hr. recharge on the battery. I wish the battery either lasted longer, preferably at least one hour or the recharge time was a couple hours, three max.
For a home garden, this rechargeable cultivator does a good job. It has torque and does not tangle easily, but as stated above, the time of use and battery recharging time are the two drawbacks.
