    Hello. I've owned the Mantis Tiller along with the Dethatcher and Aerator attachment for 3 years now. Coolest machine ever! I ordered my Hedge Trimmer attachment for the Tiller (24" Double Sided) and all you have to do is remove the engine from the tiller (10 minutes max) and your ready to go. Mantis is a division of Little Wonder so most of the features that are found on the LW Hedge Trimmers are also found on the Mantis. I had a Hedge Trimming job which I did today. Unbelievable Power, and contrary to what most people what think it is VERY light. After finishing shaping and trimming the bushes I was Cleaning up the clippings when the guys across me came to chat with me. He told me that his Redmax doesnt give as good a cut as this thing did. I recommend anyone looking for a nice, lightweight and hard-working trimmer to check it out!

    I've got the single side blade unit on order. By the way, it's an Echo engine on it.
