Black + Decker Tillers Review
The Black + Decker Tillers are known as one of the best brands in the world. They have been around since the early 1900’s and they still produce some of the most popular products today such as their famous vacuum cleaners, washing machines, washers, dryers and other household appliances.
These items all use a combination of batteries and motors to operate them.
In the past, the Black + Decker brand was owned by General Electric (GE) until it was purchased by Electrolux in 1999. Since then, GE has sold its stake in the company to Electrolux and now owns only 10% of the company.
The rest of shares are held by several investors including the German pension fund KfW.
Electrolux is currently focusing on expanding into new markets such as energy efficient lighting and water heating systems. The company also plans to increase production of its popular laundry detergent brands.
The Black + Decker brand is very well known in Europe where it is widely used in many different industries. It has a loyal following in North America too but the brand has not had quite the same success there due to competition from other brands like Whirlpool and LG.
The company manufactures all types of home equipment and they are all fairly popular. One of the more popular Black and Decker brands is their line of tillers which are designed to till or cultivate soil in your garden.
The tiller line is fairly new to the company and it includes both electric and battery-operated models that have been designed to make your work easier.
Black and Decker tillers are designed to be easy to use. The handles can be adjusted to a height that is most comfortable for the operator and they are also relatively lightweight so that you do not develop fatigue while you work.
These tillers are perfect for anyone who would like to cultivate and prepare soil in their garden without a lot of heavy labor.
BLACK+DECKER LCT300 Lithium Ion Mini Tiller
The Black and Decker LCT300 is a very popular electric mini tiller that can make short work of weeding and preparing soil in your garden. This tiller only weighs 6.5 pounds and is easily one of the lightest tillers available on the market today.
It is made from strong yet lightweight plastic and features a 3.5 AMP motor which provides more than enough power to get the job done.
This model can easily till soil that is up to 5 inches deep and does not require a lot of maintenance either.
The tines are made from stainless steel which means that they will not rust or corrode even if you use the tiller in the rain. It also features a convenient carry handle so that you do not strain yourself when moving it around.
The only real downside to this tiller is the fact that it does not have as much power as some other models. This means that you will have to do some of the work by pulling the tiller towards you instead of letting it do all the work like with some other tillers.
BLACK+DECKER LXT418 4.8 AMP Premium Electric Tiller
The BLACk and DECKER LXT418 is one of the most powerful electric tillers on the market today. This model is designed to be an all purpose garden tiller that can be used for a variety of different jobs in your garden.
It is also one of the more expensive tillers on the market but many people feel the additional cost is well worth it due to its strength and overall build quality. This model features a 4.8 AMP electric motor which provides more than enough power for most jobs.
This tiller features heavy duty stainless steel tines that can easily break up even the hardest soil. It has rear tires that are designed to never go flat which provides excellent traction and makes it easier to guide.
