A slightly bigger and more powerful sibling of the 603E, the 604E is one of the absolute best tillers on the market today. A corded electric product, it covers swaths of 16 inches wide and 8 inches deep in one fell swoop. Offering tons in the ways of maneuverability and control, it’s can cover both small and large jobs.

Now that we’ve discussed the 603e and the 604e separately, let’s talk about how they compare. While these tillers share more than a few similarities, they also possess quite a few differences.
As far as construction quality goes, these tillers are just about identical. Not only are they the same size, but they possess the same amount of tilling tines as well. Both weighing in at around 27 pounds, they are very easy to store, transport, and maneuver. They even possess the same sized tilling swaths: 16 inches wide x 8 inches deep. In addition, they’re both equipped with foldable handles for easy storage.
The primary difference between the two tillers is in their overall power capabilities. Whereas the 603e is equipped with a 12-amp motor, the 604e is equipped with a 13.5-amp motor. While this doesn’t make a huge difference in power, there is some noticeable variation. Namely, the 604e tears through soil faster and more effortless than the 603e.
Whereas the 603e takes quite a bit of guidance for you to keep it on track, the 604e seemingly leads you. Just pull its trigger and allow it to till your land in a very short amount of time.
Their prices are very comparable, with the 604e costing only about 50 dollars more than the 603e. If you’ve got the extra money laying around, you should opt for the 604e. But if you’re trying to buy a quality tiller for the least amount of money possible, the 603e will easily suffice.
For the next part of our review, let’s compare the Sun Joe electric tiller to other tillers on the market today.
We’ll start by comparing the 604e with the Earthwise TC70016. These tillers possess quite a few similarities, from their motor sizes to their tilling capabilities, and more.
Both tillers are equipped with 13.5-amp motors which do a very good job of tearing through soil and roots. They both can cultivate at depths of around 8 inches and widths of up to 16 inches. Neither one really has the other beat in this department.
The only thing that might be different between the two (aside from price) is construction quality. Overall, the Sun Joe 604e feels just a bit more sturdy than the Earthwise. It’s not much of a difference, but it is a difference. The benefit of the Earthwise is that it’s a little less expensive. Again, it’s not much of a difference, but it is a difference. If you’re looking for slightly stronger construction quality, go with the 604e. If you’re looking to save as much money as possible, go with the Earthwise.
This GreenWorks tiller is an option for those who are only looking to till small gardens. It’s not equipped with as large of a motor as the Sun Joes, sporting only 8 amps of power.
In addition, it’s quite a bit smaller than the Sun Joes, accommodating only 10 inches of tilling width in comparison to the 16 inches of the Sun Joes.
A corded electric tiller, it’s available for just a bit less money than the 603e. Truthfully, between the two, you should go with the 603e. It’s just a bit more money, and offers a lot more in the ways of tilling area and power. It’s really no comparison.
For the last part of our Sun Joe Electric Tiller And Cultivator reviews, we’ll compare them to the VonHaus 12.5-inch 7-amp. Again, the VonHaus is much smaller than both of the Sun Joe Tillers.
And considering that it’s available for just a pittance less than the 603e, it doesn’t even come close to comparing to the Sun Joes.
It doesn’t offer comparable power. It doesn’t offer comparable size. The only thing it does offer is easier storage and transport. If you’re looking for something small so that it can be stored easily, it will suffice. But if you’re looking for the best quality for price, both Sun Joes wipe the floor with the VonHaus.
