ATV Cultivator Spring is here and gardens are ready to be turned over in preparation for planting. Many people use a standard rototiller to complete this task. Running a standard walk behind rototiller can be a tiresome, exhausting task, especially if you are breaking ground or tilling soil that is an overgrown garden. Folks with disabilities can struggle greatly with tilling with a standard rototiller. Carpal tunnel, Back Pain, Hand Injury, Total Hip Replacement, Total Knee Replacement, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Muscular Dystrophy, Neuropathy, Shoulder Replacement, Stroke, Degenerative Joint Disease are all disabilities which make tilling hard. Face it, these tilling alternatives are just plain hard to use for those of us with any of these disabilities. A Tow Behind Rototiller is a great tool, but also very expensive - almost $2,000! Not everyone can afford this kind of implement, which also takes extra maintenance since it is gas-engine driven. The ATV cultivator is an economical alternative for those who already have a ATV or UTV. These usually run around $200. The cultivator can break up most soils (even sod) if used properly. It also does a great job of tilling up soil from last year's garden! This ground, however, still isn't quite ready for planting. The use of the Electric Cultivator was used for the final pass to get the ground ready for final use. Electric cultivators still require some physical labor, but it can be much easier than a standard rototiller. Electric cultivator used to till cultivated ground. Final Economics: Electric Cultivator: $182 ATV Cultivator: $209 Final Cost: $391 Tow Behind Tiller: $1800 Overall, the ATV cultivator and Electric Cultivator are a great alternative to the expensive Tow Behind Tiller, turning soil by hand, or not having a garden at all! Cultivator review
Purchasing the Metal Air Compressor Hose and the Extension Cord Reel for help in my barn shop made a big difference in saving energy while working. Simply pulling the hose or cord down to use and then retract right after use is very useful with someone who has to deal with severe fatigue issues. I no longer have to continually roll up cords and hoses while working! I highly recommend the use of these in your shop or barn.

I purchased the Electric Pruning Shears for use clipping branches for wreath making. I have struggled with carpal tunnel issues from repeated use of regular hand trimmers during the Christmas season. The electric shears basically removed all the strain caused by repetitive squeezing of the trimmers. The Electric Pruning Shears held up well to a full day's use and held their charge. After 4 weeks of solid use my hands greatly improved and the shears operated great. UPDATE: 1 Year later! Shears are still working great, still helping out my hands. The only drawback I find with these clippers are they are a little on the heavy side, which can make it a little harder on the Carpal Tunnel since I still have to pick them up and hold them.
