Cultivators tear up the earth to make room for plants and seeds. These outdoor power tools aerate the soil, while removing grass roots or other matter that can block water, air and necessary mineral nutrients from reaching your plant seeds.
Cultivators feature powerful spinning tines. The wider the set of your tines, the faster your job goes. Some features to look for in a yard or garden cultivator include ergonomic or soft grips that make longer projects easier on your hands and wrists. Electric starts save your back and arms from pulling on a cord and give you more reliable performance. If you get a model with forward/reverse gears, you can back up without having to lift the tines and rotate, which saves you extra time.
Electric cultivators utilize an extension cord to power their tines. They don't require you to refill a fuel tank and they operate very quietly, which means you can start your work early without worrying about local noise ordinances or homeowner association regulations. You need to take care not to run over the cord with the cultivator, and you are tethered by the length of the cord, which makes these models most suitable for homeowners with smaller yards.
Some cultivators are actually attachments for other tools, such as string trimmers. These versatile attachments add extra functionality and value to the tools you already own, which make them ideal for professional landscaping operations.
Cultivators enhance the overall health and beauty of your grown plants. They're simple to operate and can take hours or days off of a large project.
