The Mantis tiller is a perfect match for me. It's light weight, easy to start and does a superior job on my medium size garden.
I tried a full-sized tiller - too big for me to handle. Having seen this in ths store, i could resist trying this out.
Luckily for me, my mom decided to buy it for her house, and lets me use this each spring.
After abotu 5 minutes of playing with it, I was ready to use it!
It was able to turn over my garden in under an hour, fluffing up the soil beautifully - down to more than 12 inches in depth.
There waas barely a time when a rock or root would become stuck between the blades, but it was a easy to dislodge these and keep going.
I was able to do my entire yard, and and the various gardens around it, in one day. AND, I did not pull any muscles, or hurt any part of me in the process!
This product is a great help to my spring project list. I would recommend this to anyone that has a small-medium size yard, and anyone that would want an easy to handle tiller.
Here's some of the specs:
