Questions & Answers

My yard is full of crabgrass. Will the Mantis go through it down to soil?

Asked by Mj August 3, 2020
1
Answer

We recommend you first mow the area with the mower at the lowest setting. Then use the tiller to break through the soil.

Are the tines reversible and if not is there an electric model with reversible tines?

Asked by Rose April 18, 2020

Answers

This model does not reverse

How much assembly does this require

Asked by Mammama April 16, 2020
5
Answers

Assembly is the usual sort of headache -takes about an hour - but not a huge headache. Handle has 2 parts that bolt together and fit into the motorized unit. That's it.

Do the other attachments, for the gas model work with the electric.

This electric tiller cannot use attachment for gas models. It would be good if I could use a de thatcher attachment.

You might lose a little power using that much cord but it still should be usable.

It does not have a safety switch, but the tines do disengage when the red lever near the handle is released. (See image)

Ease of use & overgrown raised beds
I love this tiller. I have trouble getting a gas powered tiller started and can’t always find someone to help me. I plug it in and start it right up. I was able to till some raised beds that were 4+ years overgrown. I did do some prep weeding/breaking up so I wouldn’t have to stop & start to clean the tines so much. Small & light enough to lift and maneuver in the beds.

I like it
I really like this tiller. Has good power, and once it starts to bite, it chews. If I could change one thing, it would be adding a means to attach some extra weight to help break fresh dirt. If I could change two things, I would make the activation lever tougher
by TASpal
Power!
I got this one month ago and when I turned it on The first thought was I sure hope there’s a slower setting! Sure enough it was on high speed! After switching it to slow speed it did an amazing job on my flower beds we have lots of clay around here in Oregon.

Easy, functional.
Love it! Lightweight but gets the job done! No noisy or smelly gas to deal with. Works great to get into smaller areas like flower beds. Loved it so much I got one for my son and they were also very enthusiastic about the ease of putting together out of the box, and how easy it is to handle.

Works well for my 4x8 garden. First tilling was a bit of a job because of the weeds that got tangled in the tines. Had to clear these out numerous times to continue. I used the high speed. Low seemed to low. Once I cleared the weeds, I ran into some small roots which were cut pretty quickly with this tiller. Other roots that were larger caught the tiller but did no damage. I had to remove those with branch trimmer. Lastly, I dumped some peat moss on the top and tilled that in. So nice to be able to just plug in a go. No hassle with gas, oil, spark plug, carb adjustments, etc .....

Great for everyday use in the garden, flower beds and loosening soil to plant grass. No worries about maintaining gas motors Only drawback is since tilling is performed pulling backwards you have to be careful to keep cord out of the way of the blades
