Get to the fun part of gardening faster and easier than you ever dreamed possible! Easy to start, quiet and with no fuel mixing required, the Mantis 4-cycle Plus Tiller weighs only 24 pounds. It's one of the lightest small tillers you can buy. Featuring a premium 4-cycle engine powered by Honda, this lightweight powerhouse is tough enough to till through sod and compacted dirt, but is easy to carry, easy to start and easy to use. Forget old-time tillers - this work-saver has soft, sure-grip handles that are ergonomically flared for fatigue-free operation. Infinite speed means you can power your tiller up when you need to, or work more gently if the situation requires. Digging by hand or renting a giant, hard-to-handle behemoth tiller is no fun! Live your Dream Garden! The Mantis Tiller takes on heavyweight projects like busting established sod and compacted dirt or digging a planting hole with ease. The unique, curvy tines (blades) can till a full 10 inches deep. Then with a simple flip of the tines, you can precision-weed around delicate plants and seedlings! This is a gardening tool you'll use all season long! Don't hold back! Put this tiller through most any challenge! The Mantis Tiller is the tool you've been waiting for - the missing link to the greenhouse quality soil every successful garden needs. Convenient, Versatile, and Durable the Mantis Tiller/Cultivator features folding handle bars which make it convenient to store in a garage or tool shed. An innovative transmission design is what allows such a lightweight tool to provide heavyweight performance. Plus every tiller that comes out of our Southampton, PA facility is built with the lifetime service of the user in mind. Get the garden of your dreams. You can do it!

In my opinion, this 4-Cycle engine runs every bit as well as the old 2-Cycle does. It chews through almost anything you put it into. However, shallow tree roots will jam you up and you may need to shut down and unwind them from the tines. Some larger stones will sometimes get jammed in the tines, but they're not difficult to remove.
I'm very, very pleased that I purchased the Mantis 7940 Tiller and the fact that I no longer need to mix gas and oil makes my life a little bit easier.
March 27, 2019 Update...After being in storage all winter and wanting to give it one more try in the greenhouse where the soil is soft this thing no longer starts and is leaking oil. I want my money back.

Doing some more research, this is still the best option on the market for a small tiller that will till deeply. When I saw Mantis offered a 4-cycle engine (no more 50:1 oil mixing) using a Honda engine (regarded as one of the best small equipment engine manufacturers you can get), I decided to get the upgraded version of this tiller.
Package showed up via UPS within a week of ordering it - faster than the expected delivery time they originally advertised. Didn't take too long to assemble it (attach handles and kickstand, really). Used it yesterday for the first time and works like my original did 18 years ago, if not even better with the 4-cycle engine. Very pleased with it. If tilling in heavy weeds, you will have to stop from time to time to clear the weeds that get wrapped around the shaft, but is relatively easy just by taking off the tines and cleaning it out.
One concerning item is that it was tagged with a warning on the engine to avoid gas with ethanol, which is not an easy task since most places in Canada have now mandated 10% ethanol in gas...and many companies also use it as an octane booster. Issue with ethanol is that on some engine components (some plastics), it dissolves and picks up traces of the plastic molecule and when burnt, will gum up the carb and other systems over time. One upgrade might be a metal fuel tank as is likely the greatest exposure and don't see people draining the tank between uses.
Overall though, very pleased with it...
