Mantis introduced a new handle design and ergonomic grips as standard equipment on all its 9-inch gas tillers for 2015. Mantis 2-Cycle and 4-Cycle tiller models now feature a contoured handle design and premium Sure-Grip handles. Designed for fatigue-free use in all soil conditions, these grips have a flush-mounted throttle, palm-controlled safety switch and infinite speed control for superior ease-of-operation.

Every Mantis Tiller is powered by a commercial grade engine atop a durable power train featuring a precision steel cut gear system within heavy-duty cast housing. This provides the exceptional power necessary to turn specially designed spring-steel serpentine tines at up to 240 RPM. When reversed, the tines are nimble enough for delicate weeding. Mantis can speed weed most gardens in under 20 minutes.

The Mantis Tiller/Cultivator can be used for multiple garden applications and can even be used for digging planting holes for shrubs and trees. Mantis also offers a selection of optional attachments that can turn the Mantis into an edger, lawn aerator, lawn dethatcher, plow and more.
