Any homeowner who enjoys gardening knows a tiller is a nice tool to have. But if you’ve ever nearly put out your back trying to lug a heavy tiller in and out of the garage or shed, it’s time to consider the lightweight Mantis Tiller.
Makes Light Work of Yard Work
A tiller, also known as a soil cultivator, is generally best known for its use in breaking up hard soil and turning it to make way for fresh, organic soil. This allows new plants a healthier start. The Mantis Tiller can also be used to remove weeds, and should be able to weed a 30′ x 40′ garden in 20 minutes.
Unlike a large tiller, the Mantis Tiller is so lightweight – coming in at around 20 pounds — you can carry it with you in the yard and simply set it down where you need it to work. Large, old-fashioned tillers are so heavy gardeners often report having to drag the tiller to each work location.
The old tillers often take up a fair amount of room in the garage or shed, while the Mantis Tiller has fold-down handles that make storage a snap. Thanks to its smaller size, the Mantis Tiller can also be taken from one yard to another in a trunk.
Tillers can be rented by the hour or day, but most homeowners who have a garden usually consider purchasing their own tiller, and the best-selling Mantis Tiller is usually at the top of the list. Thanks to its lifetime guarantee on the tines, there’s little chance you’ll have to replace your Mantis Tiller anytime soon.
According to the company, the Mantis Tiller can cut through hard sod, compact dirt or tangled, overgrown weeds. Some other suggested uses are: digging holes to plant new trees or shrubs; turning and mixing debris in compost piles; breaking ground for new garden plots; edging lawns and gardens; aerating lawns; plowing furrows for planting potatoes and onions; and cultivating and weeding between rows in existing gardens and around plants.
