i just picked up one of those honda harmony mini tillers. i've heard great things about mini tillers like the mantis and the honda has anyone used or owned one and what do you think of them? i can't wait to try it out tommorw on some beds with old mulch, will it turn the beds and make it suitible for new mulch? also do these machines ever have ant trouble?, thanks:cool:

It should work very well for that type of work. Years ago I had a tiller attatchment for my string trimmer. It did OK for just weeding and stirring the top couple inches of soil in tight areas.

I have a mantis minitiller. That thing will through rocks bigger that your fist at you with great force. I use it alot for digging holes for shrubs in hard ground. Soak the area, then hold the tiller in a small spot, loosen the soil, shovel it out and again until you get the hole as big as you need. I have managed to break the sheld, but a little rewelding fixed that. Just remember to change the grease, since it used brass grears.

I have a tiller that still runs great and still use that was handed down from my old man to me. It is from 1977. Wish they made things like they used to.
