Spring will be here before we all know it, then it will be time to get outside and start to clean up the yard, get the deck or patio in shape, clean up the lawn furniture and get ready for a beautiful summer.
Once the yard is cleaned up, you’ll want to get the flower beds, and garden ready to plant. This usually requires a lot of digging, bending and raking. I can’t think of a better tool than the Mantis Tiller/Cultivator to help you with all of this work. Well you’re still going to have to do some work, but this tool makes it so much easier.
I’ve had my Mantis Tiller for about 10 years now, and it still runs like it’s brand new. I’ve used it year after year to till my garden, flower beds, around shrubs, and my daughter’s garden. The handles just fold down and the Mantis fits in the trunk of my car or stores easily in my garage.
What I like the best is that the tines pull off of the shaft with a simple pull of a cotter pin, and can be reversed for two different jobs. One position is for cultivating and will dig about 10 inches deep for planting your flowers or plants in your vegetable garden. The other position will only dig 3 to 4 inches deep this is really handy for easy weeding around plants and shrubs.
My Tiller also has the border edger attachment with a wheel; this makes short work of edging around walkways and the driveway for that nice clean look.
A few years ago my outside drains were clogged with mud, and not draining, causing the rain water to just settle around the foundation of my house.
I decided to abandon the old drain on one side of the house and replace it with new PVC pipe to the street. This required me to dig a trench from the edge of the house to the street a total of about 30 feet.
So, short of digging this trench with a shovel and pick, I used my Tiller to do the digging for me. I used the tines in cultivate position and shoveled the dirt out as I went along, this made the job so much easier.
If you have a garden, and flower beds and like to keep a neat lawn, I highly recommend The Mantis Tiller Cultivator.
