What users have to say

I purchased this over other brands due to the reviews. I now feel comfortable paying a higher price for the Mantis. Easy start, easy to use (best going backward as noted in previous reviews). I was leary using it on sod but it did a great job attacking it and doesn't get tangled very easily (will get some of course). I used it all summer edging, tilling and removing sod. So far, so good.

Great Tool - tangles an rocks not a problem

J. T. Murphy (NJ, USA)

I got this tiller and immediately put it to use in the yard tilling a new garden in some pretty thick crab grass. I was a little worried after reading some of the other reviews about weeds and roots tangling the blades. I did get the weed reducers and even the special tool to clear the weeds.

After a few minutes of use, I was disappointed by a nasty tangle that stopped the machine. The tool cleaned it out fast but then I learned a trick that solved the problem. When using the tool, as soon as you notice it start to bind and slow a little, ease-up on the tool and let it run free for a few seconds.

It clears the weeds almost immediately and your back to tilling. Used in this way, the tool works very well and easily digs through tough weeds and grass and even fist-sized rocks. Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews on the internet. Get the weed reducers and use this technique to clear the tool.
