Hi all,

Has anyone used either a mantis rototiller or a Sthil rototiller and what do you think of them.

mantis rotillers are very compact and a decent bit of kit but of course you pay for that,sthil also is a reliable name, how much land have you to work and what state is it in.both of these tillers are ok if you have dug the ground


I love my Mantis. It won't dig deep into heavy ground, or break up large lumps of claggy clay, but it will do the job on loamy / sandy soil without needing to dig first. It's great for preparing 'a fine tilth' and for working in manure / garden compost. It's light and reliable, starting first time after nearly a year. 


Thanks for the info, sorry for not getting back as I couldnt find mmy origional post and it never showed up in my mail box that i recieved replies still trying to find my way around this site , tks again
