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."

NEW Mantis® 4-Cycle Tiller Cultivator
Easy to start, quiet and with no fuel mixing required, the Mantis 4-Cycle Tiller is powered by a new 25cc Mantis® engine developed exlcusively for Mantis to meet the rigorous requirements of digging, tilling and cultivating in all types of soil. Paired with a durable power train, this tiller/cultivator features a precision steel cut gear system in a heavy-duty cast iron housing. This combination provides the power to turn the specially designed spring-steel serpentine tines at up to 240 RPM for maximum sod-busting performance. And the tines are guaranteed for life against breakage!
It’s lightweight – only 23 pounds – yet it powers through sod and compact soil, and quickly digs planting holes for shrubs and trees. So versatile you can reverse the tines to gently weed around delicate plants, rather than pulling them by hand. It’s starts easily, is a convenient size and is fun to use!
Features our new sleek design and Soft, Sure-Grip Handles. They are ergonomically flared for fatigue-free operation and feature a flush-mounted throttle, palm-controlled safety switch and infinite speed control for easy operation.
