oh i see. i bought the rubber paddle broom when i bought mine. to this day it still amazes me how well it cleans gravel and small rocks/sand out of the lawns. i use it on cleanups in spring when the plows push the sand up on the lawn.

they seal coated with rocks 2 years ago so we get lots of rocks on the lawn come spring..

the 110 was ok but the 100 had the same power and a little less weight. the boss thought we were crazy cause we would fight over who go to use the 100.

haven't really tried it in snow. a $5 shovel always worked good for that. too much snow would blow around with the paddle

That isn't true. The KM 130 was introduced early last year and it is not intended to replace the 110. The 110 will be around for several more years as it is one of Stihl's cleanest running units with regards to emissions.

Check out the price first, a 2 cycle Mantis is not that expensive. I have a suspicion the weight distribution will make the Mantis work better. Also you have a lot more attachment option with the mini tiller like de-thatch and aerator. I just order one whith all the said attachments.

If you have the combi and if it is less than $200, maybe. Over $200, I'll get the Mantis.
