I did a search on mini tillers, many differant opinions. I thought hard about the stihl yard boss but ruled that out based on the fact that the powerhead they use is the same they use on their homeowner trimmer unit. I have it narrowed down to a mantis 2 cycle unit or the echo unit. They are identical other than the color and the price. (i think, unless someone can prove me wrong?) I am going to go with the echo. Any thoughts?
