Unique Serpentine Tines

Mantis tillers are best because our tines are guaranteed for LIFE against breakage! The reversible unique “serpentine” tines really bust through tough soil and hard clay easily, where as other small tiller’s tines just bounce off sod or hard soil.

Powerful and Durable

Our unique tine design, paired with a powerful engine, results in the power to break through hard soil... and clay!

Life Time Guarantee

The Secret to Mantis Performance is… Mechanical Advantage!

Most small tillers place their engine and transmission behind the tines, making the tines’ performance less efficient and diminishing the digging power of the tiller.

By placing the engine and our patented, solid worm gear transmission directly over the tines, the Mantis tiller is able to use this weight to deliver maximum tilling and digging power directly to the tines. The result is remarkable power in a lightweight, easy-to-maneuver tiller/cultivator. The one-piece cast gear box is virtually indestructible. The Mantis Tiller’s transmission has a low-maintenance, one-piece cast aluminum housing. The competition’s tiller/cultivators use a cheaper, less durable two-piece housing.

The Plow Attachment creates uniform planting furrows in tilled soil, faster than by hand. Steel plow blade banks soil for fatigue-free planting. Mounts to the front or the rear of the tiller. Can be used walking forward or backward.

No question... Using my second 2-cycle tiller, and it is still – in my estimation – one of the best tools of any type that I have ever owned, and I have many tools. Reliable, tough, easy to use, and remarkably capable, even in this north central Texas high-clay soil. I love it!
