Ryobi Rototiller

I got married recently and I got a Ryobi rototiller as a gift. I have a till job set up for Sunday (this is my first tiller) Anyone have any experience with ryobi products in general, and specifically their tiller? I had thought about returning the tiller to home depot to get store credit and going to my dealer and buying a good tiller. Then I thought it might be nice to use the Ryobi for as long as I can and defer the expense for awhile.

thanks, tamo

If your mother-in-law bought it for you then you should keep it.

I had a ryobi with an edger attatchment.........the edger lasted about 1 year before it snapped the cable. I think the mantis tillers are around 300-350 bux

I do have the expand-it tiller for my ryobi trimmer, it doesnt do too bad, but it is really hard on your back, and that's coming form a 16 year old. My grampa gave me his mantis tiller and is much easier to use, and has more power. I mean if you are just tilling up a few flower beds, it wont be bad, but it all depends on the job size.
