Q: Can this unit use detachable wheels? If yes, do you sell them and how much are they?
by Gerard Pizzo from New York on November 11, 2013

A: Gerard,

Mantis offers a detachable wheel kit for their tillers and the part number is 9222.

We unfortunately do not carry this part in our stock, but if you call them directly at 800-366-6268, you can have it ordered for you.

Q: Todd,
Do you know of any mini tillers that have blades that are pointed and can replace the cultivating blades? I currently rent a push aerator that requires weight to make holes to apply grass seed in thin areas. Pushing is becoming harder and that's why I looking for a mini tiller that changes blades.
Thanks
John

by John from Maryland on September 23, 2011

A: John - any of the four MANTIS garden cultivators that we carry can be adapted to an aerator function using the aerator attachment, which is sold separately: Mantis Aerator Attachment

Q: I am looking for a smaller machine for my husband for weeding in the garden. He already has a big Husky for the prep work in the all and spring. I am interested in your opion on the matter. I see that the Mantis and Honda look like good contenders but am really not knowledgeable enough to even know the right questions to pick the correct machine. I live in an area where the soil in pretty clay like and heavy.
by Karla from Connecticut on June 13, 2011

A: Karla - if you are looking for something compact and lightweight that you are going to use primarily for weeding rather than tilling the soil, then either the Mantis #7225 or the Mantis #7262 would be excellent choices. Just depends on whether you prefer a 2-cycle engine (#7225) or a 4-cycle engine (#7262) like your big Husky. The patented serpentine tines on the Mantis tillers make these a great choice when working in hard soil or clay. I think you will be happier with the Mantis than with the Honda model if you are working in heavy, clay-like soils.

Too Much Moss!!!
I was looking for a small tiller with attachments to dethatch and aerate my property. I have too much moss (there is a reason they call it the Evergreen State...it is moss). I went online and shopped around. Tillers Direct had the best price and the reviews were useful.

I finally broke down and bought the machine. I used it after it arrived. It was easy to put together. The machine is easy to handle. Looks durable. I went with the 4 cycle (didn't want to deal with mixing anything on... more

May Have Blown Head Gasket?
Hard to start, blowing all kinds of smoke for about five minutes. Who would fix this local and it is still under warranty?

Harry,
The closest servicing dealer I am seeing in your area would be below. This being said, since you have the unit with a Honda engine, you can actually take this into a Honda engine servicing dealer as well and they would cover the unit unit under the warranty for the engine. This unit has a full warranty and you would still be under the warranty on the tiller as well as the engine. The tiller carries a 5 year warranty and the engine carries a 2 year warranty.

3rd Tiller
LOVE my Mantis!!! I am a 64 year old farm girl.....with no muscle power anymore. I bought a 4 cycle Mantis....it starts SO EASY, I don't have to have muscle! I can start it myself, and of course it digs and churns up the soil like fine sand. I used the mantis in the swimming pool area last night....we are burying our above ground pool a foot or so....worked awesome, just need to move the dirt now.... THANKS

Mantis 9" 4-cycle Mini-tiller
I'm a 68 year old woman. My husband just died three months ago, I wanted to plant our garden he had a big tiller and it was hard for me to use. I did some searching and found this wonderful tiller, it was easy to put together and start. I have told friends about it. I can use it in all my flower gardens and in my vegetable garden.

Great Results
My husband has always done the gardening and had the original Mantis with fabulous results. His health has failed and so did our 12 year old tiller so we purchased the larger tiller that does not require gas mixing since I will be using it. It still lives up to the Mantis reputation...we tilled in fairly tough soil with fine results, even dug planting spots for tomatoes tilling in amendments before inserting the plant. I am happy to report all 12 tomatoes are doing well and have tomatoes set... more

Best Tiller Ever
I have worn out 3 2 cycle Mantis tillers over the past 40 years of intensive gardening. This one is a 4 cycle tiller. Easy to start, easy to operate. Simply love it. I have a 1/4 acre veggie garden and an acre of perrenial flower beds. It is easy to spot till for a new plant or till between rows of corn and tomatoes.

Getter Done
The best garden I ever had. The tines on this thing destroy weeds and mulch them right into the soil. I have not had any trouble starting. It is light weight and easy to handle.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive

You Want What For Your Birthday?
My wife's always been a bit on the odd side when it comes to gifts. This year she'd read a review of the Mantis Tiller and had to have it. So I got her the Mantis and assumed that the second part of this deal was for me to till her many gardens. But to my surprise, after I assembled it, she's done all the work herself. The kicker is she loves it. She's tilling everything, out there all day into the evening. I can sit in front of the TV with a couple beers and watch baseball all night long... more
