    I have an echo that I want to use with the tiller attachment but it runs over 200 dollars. Will the tiller attachment for a ryobie fit? It is around 90 dollars. Has anybody checked that out?

    It should, generally it says on the box that the attachments fit other brands. the mounting system is universal.

    I don't think much of those attachment....got one in shed. Put the money towards getting that small Echo tiller it isn't as good as Mantis but plenty good and lighter.

    Actually Echo tiller is the Mantis tiller, the tines are different but the gear box and engine are the same.:drinkup:

    built by echo for years. Only now they offer it with a 4stroke honda.

    The tiller attachment is a good unit. Just be carefull near chain link fences..... If it grabs it, you're in for a ride!!!

    I have the dethatcher tines. It work very well, like it better than tilling. Wonder how does it compare with the real dethatcher like the Blue Bird.

    Be careful the tiller wont break hard ground. I have one which I use for turning over compost and cultivating beds. I would not recommend it for use on a landscape install where the ground has not yet been broken.
