Powerful but Easy to Control
Don't be fooled by the small, compact design of the Mantis Electric Tiller/Cultivator. Though it weighs a mere 21 pounds and has a width of only nine inches, the Mantis is powerful, thanks to its three-speed electric motor.

A reliable push-button primer will get you started, but the tines won't move until you squeeze the throttle. Once you've activated the throttle, the patented serpentine tines spin at up to 240 RPM to break through sod--even hard clay--tilling down to a depth of 10 inches.

The Mantis Electric Tiller/Cultivator makes it easy to maintain your garden. Simply reverse the tines to shallow-cultivate depths of up to three inches--it's much faster than using hand tools. And because it tills a nine-inch-wide path, this tool is especially useful in tight spaces and hard-to-reach areas. That's a real advantage for raised-bed gardeners.

Convenient, Versatile, and Durable
The Mantis Electric Tiller/Cultivator features folding handle bars which make it convenient to store in a garage or tool shed.

And with optional attachments (sold separately), the Mantis Electric Tiller/Cultivator can be used beyond the confines of your garden. Its lightweight design and convenient carrying handle make it portable, so adding an accessory such as a border edger or lawn aerator could potentially keep you busy all summer and into the fall.

The Mantis Electric Tiller/Cultivator's durable one-piece cast gear box is designed to last. Additionally, the tines are guaranteed against breakage for the lifetime of the tool.

From the Manufacturer

The Mantis Electric Tiller/Cultivator is an amazingly powerful, extremely quiet, and tool for your garden. Starting could not be easier � simply plug it in, pick a speed and squeeze the throttle.

Saw a lot of reviews all over the web before I bought the Mantis. I live in Chicago and have a small-ish garden out back approx 10-10. This little tiller works that soil without problem, and has helped with several other projects with friends and family.

Only con that I have found would be if you're tilling an area with a lot of roots the tiller will tangle rather quickly and pulling the tangles can be a hassle.

It is not going to till any huge area, but you shouldn't be looking at it if you have that big a need. If you've got small area(s) to till such as small gardens or raised beds or whatever, this will be perfect for you.

The electric version is quiet enough to use at 7am on a Sunday without waking the neighbors.

I am very satisfied with this purchase, and would recommend this tiller to anyone in a similar situation.

This is a good powerful tiller, but if you use it to do any serious gardening, the brushes in the motor will 'burn up' and need replacing. Use for no more than 10 minutes at a time, and let it cool off for at least a half hour (in the shade) before you use it again. I have two that 'burned up' after four months of use. I am hoping I can replace the brushes myself for less than what it would cost to return it under Mantis's one year guarantee (which I suspect they will be retracting in the future).

I would've rated this 5 stars when I first purchased it a few years back. It was quiet and just as powerful as the gas Mantis it replaced. But unlike the gas Mantis which had lots of use for many years before it worked poorly, this one has hardly had any use (we were too busy to garden the last 3 years).

Anyway, I took it out to use this year and it quits after a few minutes (yes, I cleared the roots etc, that is not the problem). I have to wait 5 minutes and then it quits again. Like something is overheating, but I don't smell any burning. For something I've used less than 20 times this is unacceptable.

Bumped up a star from my earlier review because I found it works until it gets too hot. On a warm day, that does not take too long. You need to hit the reset button once it cools down sufficiently (best to give it some time, not just 5 minutes), then it works again. When I had an issue (reported earlier) however, the local dealer who was also a Mantis support place just sat on the machine even though they told me it would be a week (need it for spring planting). Mantis has a 5 year warranty on this model ... but according to them it ony applies if you bought the Mantis directly from the company. With this kind of support, i can't give this 5 stars.

I bought this just prior to the 2011 season, and it does the job advertised. I was concerned it might not be as effective as the gas model which I used for years, but I was wrong. It tills just as well, eats sod, digs in just fine - in short - does a good job on the garden bed. That, however, is where the comparison ends. Unfortunately, the attention to detail I saw in the gas model is totally lacking in the electric. So is the sense of a durable, well built machine that will last many years. After minor assembly chores, I note that the machine is a bit flimsy when assembled. Not so much that you are disgusted by it, but enough to know it's not the same product the gas model was 10 years ago. It doesn't stay symetrical in use, and the head came already connected to the transmission, and it pivots at least 4 or 5 degrees in use. Tightening connections has not resolved the problems.

The biggest complaint I have is the big, bulky plastic handles and controllers. For starters, they are brittle plastic and quite bulky. Secondly, they were obviously thrown together at the factory without trial or concern for the hands of the user. The power "trigger" which has to be continually depressed while tilling is 'square' and sharp edged, and is surrounded by rough seams that cut into the finger rather quickly in use. The handles continually create blisters with any extended use, and my hands are not delicate. Further use of the machine will entail sanding down portions of the handle and trigger area, not something you should have to do at this price.

I'm hoping that the durability is there, despite the problems with design and detail work on the final production....but I'm not making any bets after using it.

I bought this tiller in mid-March 2013, used it a couple of times in early April on small projects, and loved the powerful way it cut through the packed dirt and grass in order to create some small flowerbeds. I also used it to 'scarify' the ground before re-seeding a 10x10 section of my lawn. I always connected it to a 12-gauge electric cord (bought especially for this tiller) to ensure it got the juice it needed for optimal performance. After finishing these early season tasks, I placed the Mantis in the garage as I didn't have time to expand my gardens for awhile. However, when I brought the tiller back out in early May the power fluctuated as though the cord had been partially severed or disconnected -- thus, the tines would only turn sporadically. I couldn't see anything wrong with the power cord, so I hit the reset button. Nothing happened. The unit will not turn on at all. We contacted Amazon, but there's only a 30 day window for returning the tiller, and we were told to contact Mantis directly. Mantis provided me the name of a dealer about 40 miles away and, as I'm a working person, I've not had time to get to that shop during its open hours although I called and discovered they have a 4-week wait for repairs. I reviewed the Mantis website, looking for a closer repair shop, but most of the shops listed on the Mantis site neither service nor repair the Mantis tillers, with the exception of one, which is also about 40 miles away, and which has a 4-week waiting period for repairs. I find this unacceptable. I purchased this tiller with the expectation that the 3-year warranty actually meant that the unit was dependable and that any needed service could be performed in a reasonable manner. I also expected that Amazon's customer service would actually do something about this particular lemon, particularly since I spend thousands of dollars each year at Amazon. I was apparently mistaken about both Amazon AND Mantis.
