Re: Tiller!

A friend of mine had a Ryobi; I didn't like it either.  One thing I
specifically like about the Mantis - and some other small tillers do this
too I think - is that you walk backwards with it so you don't step on what
you've just tilled.  Another thing about the Mantis - I prefer the shape of
their tines to those used on any other small tiller I've seen.  I don't know
anything about the Troybilt, but it sounds like it's perfect for you.
