    Hi Exact Rototilling
    It's good to know. We are on the other post talking about Costco Honda trimmer. I think it make not difference. Use to be we complain our stuff was made in Japan, turn out they are better. All computer stuff are make in Thailand etc. Nobody complain about Honda engine. Only the finishing of my Japan made GX31 is shinnier.

    BTW I recieve the Mantis, the tines looks good, but I think there might be some defect on the Honda engine casting, Mantis is going to exchange to another one. So for now, I am not going to use this one, don't want to dirty this one up just in case they determine that the engine is OK, they can still sell it as new. I just don't want something look like that. Mantis is very good at exchanging. Only one thing, I found out Alamia sell the same tiller for less, the whole thing is about $60 less:cry::cry::cry:

    I am not going to return mine and get it from Alamia, that won't be too nice. It is my fault not check the price hard enough.:waving:
