Get The Mantis You Wished You Had
I have always coveted my neighbor's Mantis, He was more than glad to lend it to me for my three 6 x 12 raised bed planters beside my home in suburban Denver.

I retired and made the decision to move back to the country and have the garden we tended when we lived in Vermont. NW Washington was our choice. On our one and a half acres we have 13 raised beds. The days of Mantis envy were gone.

Read about Tillers Direct on the internet. Made the call and made my day. Five days later...... 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.

Great For Small Gardens
I bought the Mantis to replace a 4stroke Troy-bilt tiller that I have used the past 6 years. The 2 stroke is so much easier to start than my old tiller and fires right up on the second pull. What I love the most about this tiller is the lighter weight and the pistol grip handles, which is way more comfortable, and easier to maneuver than the bar/lever design of the Troy-bilt.

My only complaint after preparing our vegetable gardens is that the tines need to be cleaned more often than my old... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, Easy To Store

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.

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
Pros: Durable, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Love Our Mantis
Used our new tiller right away & she worked like a charm. Planted some bushes & tilled up a new spot for cantalope & tomatoes. It's nice to trust in a name. Mantis has been around a long time.
