I know very little about landscaping, but this might till up the dirt and the weeds. After the grass grows, you could throw some weed & feed or something on it probably.

Looking to purchase a tiller near of a season for tilling the garden (25x25). The electric ones are so much cheaper than a good gas one. Would it be worth to spend a few extra $$ on a gas one? Would like it to last as long as possible.

I did my whole yard with this. A+ product, although I was kind of sad at how much a very long extension cord cost.

Bought it last year, works well for tilling the ground to plant new seeds BUT you want to kill the weeds first and wait a few days (depending on what you used to kill the weeds) before planting new seeds or else they might not take. If you dont kill the weeds first there is a chance that the weeds will sprout up again quickly and out-compete the new grass seeds for water/ nutrients/sun.

I second everything Michi098 has said.

Also if available now your area, I just went today but there is a slick deal for a 50ft 12 gauge Rigid brand extension cord at homedepot right now for about $25. Originally $75. I purchased that today but my other 50ft cord I got from harbor freight (12gauge black and yellow) was almost $40 I believe. It's recommended to use a thicker gauge wire with this machine.

Good point on the thicker gauge wire. I have a 10" and it calls for at least 14 gauge. Loaned it to a friend and forget to tell them that and they thought it was broken because it wouldn't power with the cord they were using.

I've had the 15amp version of this for 6 years and got a lot of use out of it. I abuse the hell out of the thing, running it through hard pack soil with lots of fist-sized rocks and it just keeps chugging. I did melt an older 12 gauge extension cord with it once. Switched to 10 gauge for any time I need to be over 50ft out and no more problems.

Gas would be more convenient (no restriction of cord length) and quicker, electric will most likely have a smaller footprint (if storage is an issue) and be cheaper (depending on cord length needed)... I opted for the electric just because I could store it on the shelf in the garage once used (plus I had a 100 foot 10 gauge extension cord already)

It will help. But the trick is to get grass growing to squeeze out the weeds and their ability to grow in baren dirt etc.

I own this tiller and yes it will till the weeds under but if it is tall stalks like Bahia it will clog the tines some. But, I wouldn't recommend tilling weeds under. Spray them and then trim and rake them out first. Live plants will regrow and outcompete your seeds. Dead plant matter is ok if you are going to seed but not if you are going to sod. The dead matter when it decomposes interferes with root formation from sod (not as big a deal with seeds). The biggest reason I get rid of all of the plants first though is leveling. It is much easier to level the soft tilled soil without clumps of dead grass. A level soil bed is the most important thing to me for asthetics and mowing. Hope that helps

I hate gas 2 cycle engines with a passion. I especially hate them on infrequently used tools like roto tillers.

Looking to put a resin shed out back. Would this help dig up the dirt/grass so I can level the area before building the shed foundation? TY

Cord might get hot after more then a couple minutes. If your willing to go at it slow it probably would be fine.

What do you recommend to kill the weeds? If I spray with glyphosate, kill weeds, then till, will the new grass seeds be able to germinate?
