Why Mantis Tillers

Why Mantis Tillers?

Mantis has a long-established history of simplifying the toughest gardening and landscaping tasks. Mantis introduced the first small tiller over 40 years ago, and we’ve remained at the forefront in providing big results from a mini tiller. Our customers have relied on Mantis tillers to help them grow great gardens and keep their lawns and backyards looking their best since 1980. Don’t rely on just any tiller – trust the original and most experienced name.

Met and exceeded my expectations!
Impressed with my new 4 stroke mantis tiller. Breaks through hard Southern Delaware clay and does a very nice job of garden bed prep. Easily cuts through 3/4” tree/shrub roots!

Torture Tested Design

We torture-test our tillers in a specially designed chamber filled with a mixture of rocks, sand, topsoil and hardwood mulch. We run them hour after hour, day after day to assure they’ll stand up to the toughest digging and tilling conditions. No other manufacturer is as committed to the long-lasting durability and dependability of your tiller as Mantis is.

Heavyweight Performance in a Lightweight Tiller

The Mantis Tiller is better by design. The specially engineered tine geometry maximizes digging power while breaking clumps and creating the ideal fluffy loam to maximize plant growth and nutrient uptake. Placing the engine directly over the tines delivers maximum rototilling and digging efficiency. In combination with an innovative gear design, it is the secret to generating more power with less weight. No other small garden tiller is as lightweight and powerful as the Mantis Tiller.

Comfort While You Work

Mantis tillers make digging and weeding more enjoyable. Ergonomic handle grips are designed for comfort. Throttle control is flush-mounted; speed is easy to control. An integrated carry handle makes lifting easy. We designed our tillers with an eye toward comfort and performance in equal measure.
