Ryobi One+ 18 Volt Cordless Cultivator

When I saw Dan and Eric’s review of the Black and Decker’s 20v Max cultivator last summer I though that is a cool little lawn and garden tool, for small projects around the yard. Well this year Ryobi has entered the small cordless cultivator market using their own One+ battery platform. I’m glad I waited as I didn’t have any Black and Decker 20v tools, but I do have Ryobi cordless tools and batteries. There is nothing wrong with Black and Decker’s batteries or tools it’s just that I didn’t have any other tools with that battery platform.

I bought this cultivator online at Home Depot as a bare tool. The model number for it is P2700A. If you want to buy the whole kit with the cultivator, charger, and battery  the model number is P2701. The cultivator does require some assembly which does not require any tools. The only issue I had was installing the tines to the unit the cotter pins they provided were very hard to insert into the cultivator.

Regarding the performance of the tool I used it to loosen up weeds in my vegetable garden before I removed the weeds. It made the tedious job of weeding so much easier than using a hoe or rake. I just want to make it clear this isn’t a tool to prepare a large area or breaking up hard compacted soil. You will need to use a heavier duty unit than the Ryobi One+ Cultivator. I use a Sun Joe corded rototiller in the spring for my heavy duty tilling in the spring before I plant my garden. This unit is perfect for freshening up small plant beds, and weeding. This is a perfect tool for anyone’s wife or grandparents its easy to use, and you also have the whole Ryobi One+ system they can add on to.

In the end I have to say I am extremely happy with my purchase of the Ryobi One+ cultivator. It’s an extremely good value, and it has done everything I have asked of it so far. My only complaint besides the cotter pin issue is why didn’t Ryobi release this tool sooner! I have always been a fan of Ryobi tools they offer good tools at decent prices for the DIY person, and¬† homeowner.

Some hobbies of mine keeping a nice green lawn and vegetable garden full of all sorts of delicious things to eat. I also like to watch college football on my down time when I have it. I hope I can help people out with any questions they might have regarding lawn and garden issues and anything else they might need.

  1. Jason I’ve never been a big fan of Ryobi, but that has changed a bit. My brother owns a few if the new 40v line of out door tools & I really really like them. I’ve trimmed the bushes with the hedger & cut small trees with the chainsaw. Nice!!!!! He also has the weed wip. Different battery platform, but I bet 18s are just as great. Laters Jason & TIA
