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.

Love It!
I had a 2-cycle Mantis before. The 4 cycle does a better job and the Honda engine just purrs and is very easy to start. I am a passionate gardener who is 70 years old.

Starting Problems
Mine has been too hard to keep running. Has been in the shop three times with starting/carburetor problems. Runs good when started.

Mechanic said he's seen a lot of problems due to ethanol in gasoline, especially with fuel that had sat over winter.
Bob, the Tiller Expert
Product Expert
Charles,
Be sure you always use fresh gasoline in your cultivator, and it should perform better. If you continue having issues, consider contacting Mantis to find out what they recommend doing or if they can take care of the cultivator under warranty.

For My Wife
Bought this 4-Cycle Mantis for my wife to till her little garden and flower bed. She needed something that was light weight and that she could start her self!

We received the Mantis in record time and it was simple to put together and she is able to start without my help which is good since i am on oxygen and can't do this kind of work anymore.

The only thing she wishes is that it had Left Handed Controls, since she is left handed and not real strong with her right hand.

Thanks for... more

For My Husband
We owned a Mantis 2-Cycle tiller for many years before it died. My husband thought he would save some money and go to Sears and buy a small craftsman tiller and did. The 2nd year after the purchase, it died . I went on your site and bought the 4 cycle tiller , my husband did not know I ordered the tiller. He said he would take it to be repaired.

I thought if our son wanted to borrow one he could have the craftsman - he breaks everything he barrows 2 day after I ordered the Mantis arrived,... more

All It's Cracked Up To Be
I bought a 2 cycle back in the early 80's and used it practically to death. I've always been impressed and amazed at how tough these little tillers are and how much work they'll do without complaint. I bought the 4 stroke to avoid the hassle of mixing gas and for the quieter operation.

I assembled the 4 stroke machine without any difficulties and used it on its maiden outing to till my existing garden, prepping it for winter and to sow some cereal rye on my 3'x30' raised (unframed) garden... more

Powerful Mantis
This is a very powerful machine digs very deep and is very rugged.
light weight and easy to use.
You need to be strong to operate this mantis as it can get away from you if you are older

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
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Light Weight, Reliable

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.
