Top Five Reasons Why You Should Buy Mantis Tillers
Mantis Tillers Reviewed
To save your back and knees you could
go with a
stand up manual garden
till like the famous garden
weasel. It is cheap
and easy to use.
For medium or large gardens you are going to need a garden
a little more power than your arms. So what type of tiller do you buy?
If you have a smaller or confined garden you will want to go with
something maneuverable like an electric mini
tiller or cultivator. Or
maybe a small 2hp gas model. Most of them are lightweight and very easy
to handle. Cost on them is reasonable too for the amount of work they
will save you.
One of the biggest pluses for a small garden
till is that it uses less
storage space. If you buy one with folding handles you can save even
more room. A word of warning though, I would not recommend using a
small garden tiller to start a new garden where the soil has never been
broken up before. You will need something a little more heavy duty to
cultivate your soil for the first time.
Renting a large heavy-duty garden
tiller the first year to bust up your
soil and then get a small
tiller for maintenance and
Front tine vs. rear tine
The best purpose for a front tine tiller is maintaining soil that has
been cultivated before. Start out the first time with a rear tine
Rear tine tillers are easy to handle and maneuver. They will pretty
much turn on a dime when needed and require much less effort from the
operator. The majority of rear tine tillers can handle any garden job
that you require from them.
What Brand To Buy
There are many different brand names in the garden tiller business.
Some of the better known garden tiller brands are, Troy Bilt Garden
Tillers, Honda Tillers,
Husqvarna Garden Tillers,
Craftsman Tillers, and MTD Tillers. Prices and models vary a lot so the
best thing you can do is shop around and compare after you have decided
on what type you need for your garden.
