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."

Mantis Classic Plus 2-Cycle Tiller/Cultivator
The Mantis 2-Cycle Plus Tiller/Cultivator with FastStart technology feature; requires 75% less starting effort. This tiller has all the features of our 2-Cycle Tiller, PLUS the FastStart technology. How it works: A spring-loaded ratchet-coil to adjust the piston and compress air, while delivering fuel directly to the iginition point. That is what makes starting faster, easier, and with much less effort.
Lightweight, compact and easy to use. This tiller has the power to break through sod, plus you can reverse the tines to the cultivating position and carefully weed around existing plants. Saves you time…and, saves your back!
Our tines are guaranteed for LIFE against breakage. Plus, Mantis tillers are backed by a 90-Day Money-Back Guarantee plus a 5-Year Warranty!
Reliable Easy-To-Start Engine with FastStart. Commercial-grade two-cycle engine with pushbutton priming for quick, easy starts, time after time. FastStart technology makes starting the tiller 75% faster and easier.
Throttle-Activated Centrifugal Clutch. The tines engages only when you squeeze the throttle. So, the Mantis Tiller gives you greater control; you won't have to worry about a "runaway" tiller.

Compact Design. The Mantis Tiller/Cultivator easily gets into tight places where no big tiller can go.
Lightweight. At just 20 lbs., the Mantis Tiller weighs less than other lightweight tiller/cultivators. But its pure muscle, designed for hard work and long life.
10" Tilling Depth. With The Mantis Tiller/Cultivator you can till up to 10" deep. You'll have better soil. And better soil is the foundation of better gardening.
High-Speed Operation. Revolving at 240 rpm the Mantis Tiller patented tines make fast work of many gardening chores. For example, you can cultivate or weed a 30' x 40' garden in just 20 minutes.
Patented Reversible "Serpentine" Tines. Their exclusive design helps the Mantis Tiller/Cultivator dig deep even into the hardest soil, instead of bouncing around like other mini-tillers.
Lifetime Guarantee Against Broken Tines. We're so confident in our patented tines if one of them ever breaks, we'll replace it for free. No matter how long you've owned your tiller.
