Teacher Wins $500 for Groundbreaking Tiller Review

Mantis Electric Cultivator Review

BOLINGBROOK, IL (July 08, 2019) - An Illinois teacher is sure to have a fantastic answer to the question, “What did you do on your summer vacation?” after winning $500 in the Tillers Direct video review contest.

Six times each year, Power Equipment Direct (PED) holds a video review competition for each of its 14 niche websites. Customers can participate by uploading honest, informative video product reviews to YouTube. The reviews then are featured on PED’s sites, where they help educate other shoppers.

The winner of the June 2019 edition of the contest is Bill T. of Downers Grove, Illinois, who reviewed a Mantis electric tiller-cultivator.

“Bill’s review was great because it really showed the Mantis tiller in action. We got to see how comfortable the handles were to hold, how easy the height of the tines was to adjust—even how light the tiller was to lift,” said Jake Woltman, product expert at Tillers Direct.

“All of those details are important to customers looking for a lightweight tiller or cultivator for soil maintenance,” he added. “Beyond that, it was obvious right from the start of the video how much fun Bill and his wife were having with their new equipment.”


After being notified that he was the contest winner, Bill was happy to share his thoughts on his Mantis tiller-cultivator along with his experience buying from PED.

“I have used it many times during this last month. It has operated in our gardens for both large area and micro-cultivating tasks, and is also so easy to use," he explained.

Describing his shopping experience, Bill said, “Starting with a well-organized and informative website that Power Equipment Direct provides, I was able to quickly navigate right down to Mantis cultivators so I could compare gas versus electric. I found the right information to make a choice, saw my cultivator was in stock, and called the 800 number."

He continued, "Within about a minute I talked to a regular person, Dale V., who set up my order for will call, giving me his direct line in case the tool was not ready when I got to the warehouse. Within an hour I was back home with my new Mantis."

Bill's conclusion? “PED made it really easy to choose and buy an awesome power tool!”
