What For A Junk. Don't Buy It.
That is my second Mantis. Looked up the reviews and I was thinking oh it must be a good machine. Had problems with the first one and was thinking it is my problems and I do not know ho to star it. Have the same problems with the second one. I could have tilted the garden with a shovel and would be finished in half the time as to start the Mantis. You burned my money twice.Never again.
Cons: Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Expensive

Mantis 7920 Works Well
I bought this to replace a Ryobi I had. I wanted one with the engine on top of the tines. I have to say that makes a big difference as I was expecting it would. I don't have any issues starting it. Starts around 3 or 4 pulls. I think it works great, I till a garden around 10 by 20.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again

Great Product And Customer Service
Great little tiller! We wanted light, portable tiller we could move easily in the car. Perfect. It works a stated, easy to start,it my time down for soil prep, weeding, general garden upkeep. We have a plot in a small community garden and we have the best looking garden and plants. Tiller has fully met our expectations. We did add the kick stand which makes it easier to store and for starting.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: none so far.

Great Tiller And Easy To Use
Bought new house with neglected, weed filled beds. Tiller was great for clearing them quickly and breaking up hard compacted soil. Started quickly and powered through it well. Easy to remove tines to clear debris. Would recommend
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Durable

This Thing Is Awesome
The Mantis was very easy to put together, it only took about 10 min. I put gas in it followed the start up instructions pulled the cord 5 times and it fired right up. After letting it warm up for a few minutes I took it into my garden. The ground was rock hard and it broke right through. Very easy to control, after a few minutes of use I got used to how it worked and did my whole 220 sq. foot garden in about an hour and half. This machine is wonderful. I just wish I didn't wait so long to get... more

Awesome Machine!
I am a landscape contractor and I love this machine. I have had 5 of them now. I had a client that had one and I was impressed with what I saw. I decided to purchase 2 of them to give to my maintenance crews, for preparing planting beds when changing seasonal color. I soon purchased 2 more Mantis tillers for my installation crews.

We use them in areas that a larger tiller will not fit. We use them to back-fill trenches and behind retaining walls. I like to use them as a power rake when... more

Don't Waste Your Money On This Tiller!
Purchased the 2 cycle fast start model last year and have experienced nothing but trouble. I spend more time trying to get it started than I would hand digging my garden. In my opinion the carburetors used on these tillers are a piece of junk. Take my advice and buy another brand.

Larry,
Thank you for the positive review, just remember bad fuel is a small engines worst enemy. Avoid ethanol especially when storing it. I recommend more

Great Light-weight Tiller
I have black clay soil, sometimes called ''gumbo''. Works great for breaking up the clods and weeding the middles in the garden. Takes a little more time where the middles have been compacted by the tractor tires but does get out the grass.
