Customer Testimonial


We live in the Poconos where the ground is literally rock hard. Digging here is always an adventure so we were a little unsure if your tiller would be tough enough to do the job and be strong enough to take the punishment. We are happy to report we've had positive results and the Mantis has saved us hours of work."
