Q: What is the difference between the Mantis model 7225-00-02 and 7225-15-02?
by Peter Naruns from California on February 19, 2012

A: Peter - the Mantis model 7225-00-02 and the model 7225-15-02 are the same exact tiller (model #7225). The model 7225-15-02 includes a bonus kickstand accessory and a bonus border edger accessory for no additional charge. The model 7225-00-02 is just the tiller by itself.

Mantis Tiller
I bought the Mantis Tiller about three years ago and have been able to use it very little. It will crank at nothing, but, getting it to run is something else. I can adjust the carburetor and get it to run as long as I am keeping it revved up but then when I stop it goes dead and I can't get it to run again until I spend about an hour adjusting the carburetor again. In short as far as I am concerned this is a piece of junk. It has power when it runs but what good is that power if you can't... more

Good Weeder
First of all, the service by Tillers Direct was superb.

The Mantis tiller is a fine machine that works very well in the garden to till around plants for weed control. It is way too light, however, to till unbroken soil. It simply bounces up and down with out digging in at all. This is exacerbated by the extremely rocky soil here in the Missouri Ozarks.

Keeping the above limitation in mind, the Mantis tiller is an excellent machine that starts and runs great.

Downhill After The First Year
The first year the tiller was great, the second and third year nothing but problems. Will not start easy and the power after it start's is poor. I think the factory should do a fix so we can get our value.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Unreliable

Long Awaited Tool!
I finally had the opportunity to use my tiller. It is so powerful, I was surprised. I have waited two years to get my Mantis tiller and it was worth it. I am a woman so I needed a tiller I could use.

Newer Models Not As Good As Older
Bought one 12 years ago and loved it. Was a real workhorse and never had any problems. Still use it as a backup. Bought one three years ago and hate it. Worked good the first year and now it bogs down under any kind of load (even broken up soil). I drain the fuel after each use and have replaced the spark plugs, filters, etc. Very disappointed in the new model.

An Excellent Machine
When I first saw this tiller at a local store I commented to my wife, that I'd be able to do more work with an egg-beater than this thing. Boy was I wrong!!! I decided to do some more comparisons online and stumbled on this Mantis machine again only priced nearly $100 less at this site than locally.

After reading the above reviews, I decided to give it a try. One of the best choices I have ever made. It isn't designed for 300 acre gardens, but it is the cat's meow for maneuvering in... more

24inc Hedge Trimmer Attachment Added
Just added the 24 inch hedge trimmer attachment. 150% satisfied in every way . From ease of changeover from tiller to hedge bar, to the quality of construction, More than enough power from engine, a joy to use, I have been around equipment all my life and at 50yrs old, have to say this is one of the finest pieces of workmanship I've seen in a long long time. Thank you for building a quality product.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Mantis Tiller
This little tiller was just the right ticket for our flower beds and raised garden. It has power, goes deep and turns the soil upside down, inside out! A great buy for the price. My wife can use it with no problems and kickstand is a must! Great buy!!!

Aunt Gave Me A Used One
My aunt gave me a used Mantis 2 years ago and it saved me hours of hoeing per week. GREAT time saver, so after it wore out I had to have another.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: None
