An Excellent Machine
I bought the Stiga SRC48AE Cordless Tiller to avoid having to dig vegetable plots etc. It is excellent and makes a ready-made seedbed. It will scarify smaller weeds, either burying them or leaving them easy to pick up.
It won't tackle grass or weed clumps which wrap themselves round the tines. You need to unwrap fibrous matter which winds around the tines or simply remove the tines to clear them, hence only 4 stars for performance and ease of use - but its as good as it gets and no petrol to bother with.
So dig up the big clumps of weeds and grass and off you go. 1 hours work = a day's hard digging.
The battery life is exceptional
