Try ebay for a 2nd hand mantis , I got an old 2stroke a few years ago for 40 quid.

 It will last longer than the cheaper models you see in the paper.

I agree 100%...I did bite the bullet at the start of the year and bought one, their great, but they are only a tiller and not a rotavator.  Try your local papers, Gumtree, and the free adds....you may strike lucky. ;)

I have a Mantis. It tills down to about eight or nine inches - but what do you plant that needs to go deeper than that?

Save and get one!
