mantis choices
« on: April 29, 2015, 21:17 »
Hi all

I am taking the plunge and buying a new mantis, I notice the deluxe is approx. 50 more than the basic , is the uplift in cost worthwhile as looking at the mantis site the only noticeable difference is the grips

I don't mind spending the extra if its value for money- any assistance greatly valued

Oh well ive taken the plunge and ordered the following

Deluxe 4-Stroke Tiller
Gardening Package includes:
Mantis Deluxe 4-Stroke Tiller
 Kickstand
Planter Attachment
Plough Attachment

look forward to having it later next week, and already have plans for using it to dig in manure and seaweed later on this year.
plot number 1 needs breaking down to a far better tilth than it presently is and I hope the mantis and the manure will help with this
plot 2 will also have the same treatment

I absolutely love my Mantis, and couldn't manage without it. The plough attachment, however, is pretty useless unless you have reasonably light soil, when it would probably work just fine.

The tiller itself is a reliable little workhorse, and in the four years that I've had mine, has been problem free. It saves so much time and effort - you'll love it!

Hi Offwego,
Am now pondering on the possibility of buying a Mantis. Can I ask how you found it?
