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."

The Mantis 4-cycle gas-powered tiller is lightweight, but powerful enough to till through sod and compacted soil. The 4-cycle engine is easy to start, and requires no fuel mixing.

Once your garden is established, use the Mantis Tiller to cultivate and weed your garden with ease. Since it weighs just 24 pounds, it's easy to carry - to the shed, to the car, or to your neighbor who can't wait to try it! Great for senior gardeners, too!
