Mantis Garden Rototiller Description

What machine does the work of a hoe, grubber and shovel at the same time and all you have to do is hold onto it and walk behind it? There are no starting issues or loud noise and fumes – Answer: the Mantis garden rototiller.

It is small, weighing 21 pounds, but this makes the Mantis garden rototiller portable and maneuverable when in use. It is a three speed model so you choose between cultivating, tilling and digging. Once plugged in you push a button and to get the tines to do their work you squeeze the throttle control on the handle. The tines rotate at up to 240 RPM, cut a path of 9 inches wide and can till up to a depth of 10 inches, even in hard soil. If you want to use the Mantis garden rototiller for some shallow tilling then you reverse the tines and the tilling depth is reduced to 3 inches. Reversing the tines is easy.

So all you have to do is plug it into the power and with the push of a button you know you have “lift off”. The Troy-Bilt Garden Rototiller has a powerful 6.5 amp motor which drives the forward rotating cutting tines through a durable gear drive transmission.
