Mantis Tiller Product Review

The original Mantis tiller and soil cultivator is the incredible lightweight tiller that has made gardening easier for more than a million people.

Pros: Gardening is one of the most pursued of all hobbies today. Planting seeds, watering, weeding and watching plants grow and thrive brings a great deal of pleasure to many people of all ages but, let's face it, gardening can be hard back-breaking work…especially the part of getting new ground ready to plant. That is where the Mantis 2-Cycle Rototiller Cultivator can help.

The exceedingly well-built Mantis tiller cultivator will last for many, many gardening seasons. The Mantis 2-Cycle Tiller Cultivator is very light weight (only 20 pounds) but it works like a much larger machine.

Cons: You would normally have to assemble the Mantis rototiller cultivator - but the good news is there is an option to order the Mantis 2-Cycle Tiller Cultivator fully assembled. With this option, it couldn’t get any easier. You order the Mantis 2-Cycle Rototiller Cultivator, it arrives, you take it out of the box and get right to the joy of gardening.

What users have to say

Name: S. Roomian (Upstate NY)

I purchased this item as a gift for someone else. I did assemble and test run the tiller and watched the operation of it in the hands of the new owner. The tiller performed very well both in tiller mode, and with the edger attachment which was included. Engine runs great, and everything functions as it should.

I did not give a 5 rating, as the powerhead arrived crooked (which I adjusted) and there should be a better way to attach the control cables to the handle bars. Also, I agree with another reviewer on the subject of the choke knob. A little too tight a fit within the engine shrouding to easily grasp the knob. Overall though, the Mantis works great, and the price could not be beat.

Incredible piece of machinery. Worked fantastic on about 1000 sq feet of hard, root and rock infested land. Light but man this thing is a bull. Get weed reducers. Roots did get wrapped around the tillers, but only cleared them out every 300 sq feet or so because I wanted to not because I need to. Only took 2-3 minutes to clear. Kick stand is also a must have. Also purchased the Thatcher and aerator attachments.

Also did a fantastic job. Boy did the Thatcher bring out the dead grass. Make a bigger job than what I thought, so leave yourself enough time. Only problem with the tiller is that the on/off switch is too close to the right thumb area so you accidentally shut off the unit a lot. To prevent this, I taped the switch to the on position. There is little chance that the machine will be running and you getting your body stuck in it unless you do something stupid. In closing I highly recommend this product and all its attachments.
