Product Description

Product Description

One trimmer with eight ways to use it. TrimmerPlus attachments transform your string trimmer into eight different tools. And they fit all Troy-Bilt trimmers with EZ link technology. You can even add the Press2Start electric adapter for simple push-button starting.

Amazon.com

The Ryobi TrimmerPlus Add-On garden cultivator features an 8-spoke design that bites into even the hardest-packed dirt and easily churns it up for next-step ready planting. Other features include adjustable tine widths from 6-to-9-inches, a heavy-duty gearbox, and heat-treated 8-inch steel tines. The Click-Link shaft allows the user to add or take off the attachment in seconds. When you're done, simply detach the cultivator head with a click, hang it on the wall, and move on the next project. The attachment can be used with any Ryobi TrimmerPlus unit, including electric, 2-cycle, or 4-cycle, most Yard-Man and Troy-Bilt attachment capable units. The attachment also fits most other attachment capable units on the market. This cultivator is backed with a 2-year warranty.

Rock it back & forth slowly like you would a vacuum cleaner.

This is useful for small vegetable gardens, but the best use is refreshing the soil around shrubs in your foundation beds.

I am completely satisfied with my purchase and would not hesitate to buy another.

I never thought that a small tiller attachment for a weed trimmer could hold up to my expectations, but I was definitely not disappointed with this unit.
I was amazed at how much I could do with this cultivator. Entire flower beds and even large planters can be worked without the effort of hand-tilling, and the compact size of this attachment allows it to get into corners a full-size tiller couldn't go.
There is plenty of torque to go through pretty compacted soil. Large, solid chunks of clay or stone will get stuck, but a little patience and common sense on the part of the operator will prevent that problem.
Well worth the money, definitely a must-have attachment for the Ryobi trimmer!

I really like the concept of the TrimmerPlus accessory system. I own the 875r trimmer motor (4 cycle), most of the other accessories, but I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about buying this particular attachment. I didn't think the engine on my trimmer would be strong enough to power a tiller through my neglected & hard-packed beds.
None of the local stores which carried the TrimmerPlus line carried this accessory, so I thought I'd have to buy it online and didn't want the hassle of boxing it back up and shipping it if it turned out to be a disappointment. I finally saw it in a local store and decided to take a chance -- figuring it would be easy enough to return if it didn't work out.
Was I ever surprised.
The gear ratio in this little guy apparently gives the engine quite a mechanical advantage over hard soil. I just let the weight rest on the ground (I don't lift it up or push it down as I till) and let gravity and the tines do all the work as they till their way into the ground. Rock it back & forth slowly like you would a vacuum cleaner.
I use it in the spring to prepare my beds for planting, but I also use it in the fall. I don't throw out my leaves with the yard waste, I run over them a few times with the mulching mower to break them up, then let the mower bag them, then dump them all throughout my beds. I use this tiller to work them into the soil and enrich it. The soil quality of my beds was rather poor when I moved into this house, but has been improving year over year ever since I started doing this.

I own the electric Ryobi TrimmerPlus 132r and wanted to go with all non-gas for the power tools in my small yard. I planted a vegetable garden two years ago and rented a 5hp tiller to chew through the grass that was in place then. I decided to buy the cultivator attachment for the trimmer and have been extremely pleased.
I was concerned the electric motor would not be adequate for even minimal tasks but I was shocked (sorry) to find I could till through heavy dirt -- I even had to push on the back of the cultivator with my foot to get it to labor and eventually stall in the soil. I even tilled some moist but hard packed dirt without any trouble.
As other people have mentioned, the head on the unit was small enough to effectively turn over the dirt in a 30-inch wide planter.
If you're looking for a cultivator to handle a small garden, I would be surprised if you were disappointed by this product.

We bought this with the Ryobi 875R 4-cycle trimmer. There are a lot of good reviews, so my wife and I thought we should check it out. This attachment is worth every penny we spent on it. Being that this is the first spring in our home, a lot of landscaping was needed in our yard. Our planting beds are too small to rent a big tiller, and since we needed a trimmer anyway, this seemed like a good choice. Other reviewers have commented on how tough this is, and the mechanical advantage it offers. These reviews speak the truth. I spent about two hours tearing up a section about 20' x 5'. My yard is terrible, rocks (averaging about half the size of my palm) were plentiful, roots everywhere (from small little bits to about 3/8" thick), and very hard packed soil throughout. This cultivator tore through it all, only being stopped once by a big root. Like was mentioned before, just set the thing down, full throttle, and walk backwards, letting the (somewhat considerable) weight of the cultivator do the work. I say walk because if you try to lean or push, you will quickly develop a sore back. Also, you may want to get the shoulder strap, or make one of your own from luggage straps, as after a while it all begins to wear on your arms and back. At the end of my cultivation session, I pulled the blades off and removed some tangled roots, and it looks good as new. Again, it is quite strong and very worth it if you need to start and maintain smallish soil areas. I don't know how well it will work with an electric or 2-cycle trimmer, but the 4-cycle is relatively quiet and quite powerful. Get it.

Verified Purchase
I recently got a great GoldBox deal (combined with a coupon) on the 4 cycle curved shaft trimmer. I have an old Red Max commercial grade trimmer that blows smoke, makes a racket but tears the hell out of anything. I wanted a smaller trimmer for my wife to use. The 4 cycle is nice and torquier. What makes the deal is this tiller attachment. I chewed up my garden in 5-10 minutes. Then I laid out the peat and the compost, and turned it all in. Beautifully tilled soil and all chunks ground to a nice size. Don't plan on tearing up sod with it, but if you have a yearly garden turnover/break-up chore, this is the ticket. Great idea and functions far better than you might imagine.
