wheres the cheapest place to get one of these from?

I bought mine direct from Mantis. On ebay Mantis do have a shop selling ex demo units, but you do not save  much + buying new from mantis they give the option to spread the cost over 4 monthly payments and full 5 year on the unit, and life time on the tines.

I would be lost without it now, I got the 4 stoke unit, and can no sing its prises enough.

I have the potato attachment, but have not managed to get it to work, the weed catchers are good, and also the narrow set of tines.


As mentioned about the unit catching on stones, I only see that as an advantage as it helps clear the stones out.

I bought mine on eBay, just checking the price of a 4-stroke now it is New=£339, eBay =£279. Both include free delivery and border edger + kickstand, eBay=1 yr warranty, UK Distributor = 5 yrs, but I reckon that 17.5%  discount is worth having!

The eBay account I bought off was mantisoutletuk - which I believe is the factory outlet.

Anyone wanting other attachments, or to have it assembled, might be better off getting it from the UK Distributor

Yes a saving of 17.5% is good, which = £60, but for that you have to pay up front in full £279, which for some is a lot of money in one go.

where as direct from mantis yes you pay £60 extra but you can at no extra cost pay £84.75 for 4 months at no extra cost, which really helps spread the cost.

+ you are getting a brand new machine.

Either way, a great little machine.
