Re: small tiller/cultivator


One more thing about the Mantis. A couple of you mentioned difficulty starting it. I found out how to adjust the carbourator which is easy and solved the problem for me. However, when it sat over winter it would take 9 to 11 pulls to get it started. If it sat just for several weeks, it took 6 pulls; sat for only aweek or a few days, maybe 2 or 3 would do it. Same day - 1 or 2 pulls.

OK- just to add one final twist- apparently there is a version of the Mantis tiller available, but with a Honda 4 stroke engine- from AM Leonard Co. Here's the link-

I have officially reached information overload status.

yep- that's the one I'm thinking about too- but Chris has some difficulty with it, so I think I need to see one up close in person to see if I think I can leverage it adequately given my height (or lack there of).

I'd be interested to know what you think of it when you see/buy one.

Does anyone own one of those small tiller/cultivators? If so, do you like it and which brand. The one I always hear about are the Mantis- but I have know idea if they do much of anything or not.

I had a Mantis for a number of years; as Kitty says, it does a good
job for its size. But I found it difficult to start (2-cycle) last year
so gave it away and am going to try a 4-cycle Honda mini-tiller,
model number something like E-100.
Several years ago Jesse said she got one and loved it, you might drop her
a line.

Revision: The Honda I was thinking of is model # FG-110, price $379.
