Thanks for the suggestion Kirk. No rototiller yet but that's an awesome idea for our multi-head set.  We'll keep you posted if we do come out with one in the future.

I would buy a stand alone rototiller (not a multi head attachment).

Currently the Power head cultivator attachment is the closest thing to an Ego rototiller.  I do not think that will change anytime soon - JMO.

I agree. The current cultivator would be fine I expect for small, semi soft dirt. A stand-alone heavier duty one would be a great addition. Something similar to currently made battery powered stand alone rototillers made by Snapper, Ryobi and Eartwise. I would buy one by Ego.

No argument here - the cultivator is not a rototiller.   Not sure that a rototiller is a great battery application.

Knowing their would be limitations to a battery powered stand alone rototiller, one should not expect it to replace a 5 hp Troy Bilt for example. But most homeowners do not need that type of power. But they do need more than your current attachment tiller. And your current tiller is hefty and could only be used by young and or fit people for a short period of time due to the weight. Take a look at the Honda FG110. This is the class of product Ego could make a tiller. And it is perfect for a small to medium home. There are other electric standalones that I have mentioned previously. I expect it would be a hot seller for you.
