When our age increases our tolerance for backbreaking work decreases. The need
to prove anything to anyone diminishes, and most certainly, we don't take pride
aching bodies or our callused hands as we used to. Life can be easier, more
relaxing and more enjoyable. We can spend more of our time with loved ones doing
the things that we enjoy -- such as planting and harvesting, to name a few.
Tilling is demanding and we are looking for some gardening ease. If this sounds
just a bit like you the Mantis 2-Cycle Tiller/Cultivator, can be the best choice
The Mantins-2-Cycle Tiller is a comfortable lightweight piece of garden
equipment, but don't be fooled. While it's 9-inch wide mouth is petite enough to
do edging work between rows and alongside fences, once you pull the
throttle-activated clutch, the powerful patented tines begin digging down 10
inches into the dirt, sod, solid clay and hard ground at 240 RPM.
The manufacturer claims it will effectively weed and tile a 30 x 40 foot garden
in just 20 minutes
The versatile attachments include a plow, planter/furrower, border edger,
aerator, hedge trimmer and lawn dethatcher. With the company's one-year "no
questions asked" money-back guarantee, the 5 year warranty and the lifetime
guarantee against tine breakage, the user can feel good about this purchase.
"It really packs a punch," one consumer writes about the Mantis 2-Cycle
Tiller/Cultivator. One petite woman admits, "I can't control a big tiller but I
like to do my own yard projects. The Mantis tiller helps me do just that." A
quality-conscious gardener reports, "It's a real working machine and very easy
to use even with my shoulder problems." Another individual shares the tiller
with two other families and has no trouble transporting this lightweight machine
around. A gardener at the Associated Content website says the tiller works
especially good at turning up compost. Amazon reviewers call the Mantis "a
weed-eater on steroids," "a little giant" and "a raging bargain." Numerous
customers said that when they finally killed the tine (after more than 20 years
of consistent use, mind you); the people at Mantis made good on their "no
questions asked" guarantee and replaced it.
Some senior citizens may prefer the Mantis 4-Cycle Gas Tiller Powered by Honda
to the Mantis 2-Cycle Tiller/Cultivator because it uses 1.1 horsepower (rather
than 0.9), it is quieter and it uses gas only (compared to a gas/oil mix). This
model sells for about $100 more but is just as versatile and weighs only three
pounds more than the 2-cycle. Consumers may also want to check out the Mantis
electric tiller if they're not keen on gas-operated machinery.
