Sample Customer Reviews
Reviews of this tiller from actual owners are very good overall with over 76% rating the Mantis 7225-00-02 as a 4 or 5 star rototiller (out of 5 stars).
Positive Customer Reviews
I've owned this Mantis for three summers now and have used it extensively with no trips to the shop. This tiller can go places many larger rototillers cannot. It's light and easy to handle once you figure it out. My teenage son uses it all the time and I feel comfortable that is no way for him to be overpowered or in harms way. This is a great gas tiller for small gardens, should last you for years and years and years of moderate use.
This is a 5 star tiller -- at least for my purposes which is backyard gardening. I've dug up three gardens with this thing already...many riddled with weeds...and it really rips the dirt up good. Easy to control, really glad I bought it. Can't beat free delivery either.
Buy this mantis, it will last forever. My last mantis lasted 15 years, this one is just as well made.
Negative Customer Reviews
The mantis tiller is great for raised beds and not too hard soil.
Very bouncy and doesn't do very well in rocky gardens.
