What Do People Love About Mantis Tillers/Cultivators
People tend to love the Mantis tiller because of its ergonomic, ease of use and its versatility in tight, garden-bed type areas.
We’ve found that the most popular model of Mantis tiller is the 9″ 21.2cc 2-cycle gas cultivator/mini tiller that comes with a bonus kickstand and border edger. While it’s not designed for breaking solid ground, it’s very effective as a garden tiller for stirring soil and mixing amendments. It’ll effectively loosen garden soil to make planting easier, which is nice when you consider the alternative – digging on your hands and knees with a little hand-shovel.
It’s 9″ wide and digs at a maximum depth of 10″. It’s great if you’re planting your flowers, but it’s even better if you have a vegetable garden that needs managing. They’re light-weight, only 20 pounds, and it’s very easy to switch from tiller to edger.
If you have trouble working heavy equipment, these tillers make it a lot easier to get the job done. They’re excellent for getting rid of weeds. For bigger jobs like turning a section of your lawn into a tilled garden bed, you’ll want to upgrade to a hard/clay soil tiller with rear tines, but for smaller jobs and maintaining an already existing garden bed, these Mantis tillers are a very easy and reliable way to get the job done for less.
