    I got info from the factory on the Mantis Tiller.
    They want $299.00 + (S&H) for the lil' tiller & it comes with a free edger attachment. Do any of you guys use the Mantis on small areas, beds, ect.

    Is it really worth the money? How have your experiences with it been?


    Thanks,
    Bishop :alien:

    I have the ECHO tiller. Cost me $299 from local dealer. I didn't get the edger with it though. Works real good, didn't use it a ton this year but they work suprisingly well for being small and with the thin looking blades. They tore up our Wisconsin clay pretty good,

    I bought one in spring! Love the lil thing! Dont expect to till hard dry clay with it but for beds and better soil it is fantastic! Definitly worth the money!

    Bishop, if you do decide to get one, check on e-bay for them. I used to see them quite a bit on there, and you can usually save some decent money.

    It's a great little tool for bedding plants,worth every penny I bought mine used for $100 look in greensheets, most used ones have very low hours.
