  1 Question
Q: Does the product include the kick stand as indicated in the picture.

Do tines have lifetime warranty

Why the difference between consumer warranty listed under engine (2 years) and consumer warranty listed under tiller (5 years)

by Gordon Hall from Texas on March 10, 2016

A: Gordon - yes, the Mantis model 7940 does include the kickstand as shown. The tiller itself has a 5 year warranty from Mantis that covers everything except the engine. The engine has a separate warranty of 2 years that's covered by Honda

The Mantis #7940 cultivator/ mini tiller is easy to start, quiet and the Honda 4-cycle engine means no fuel mixing required. Originally manufactured for professional landscapers in the late 70s, ten of thousands of these Mantis cultivator/ mini tillers have been sold to home gardeners.

The Mantis #7940 cultivator/mini tiller features the patented Mantis reversible serpentine tines. You can till a 9 path that is suitable for preparing the ground for gardens and edge lawns. The powerful... more

Mantis Cultivator
Would not know how good this cultivator is because it came without a transmission drive shaft. Contacted Tillers Direct, and because I had put oil and gas in it they said they could not warranty it. I was told to contact the manufacture of the tiller. I realize it was the manufacturer's fault for leaving out the part, but it was purchased through your company.

Your company would not even give me the time of day. You could have referred me to your service department to find the cause.... more
Pros: none
Cons: missing vital part

Jackie,
Unfortunately, it's unlawful for us to accept a return shipment of any power equipment that has been gassed. However, we do refer you to the manufacturer, because they can either send you a missing part or have the equipment repaired under warranty at a local authorized service center. We'd like to apologize for any misunderstanding or inconvenience this may have caused you.

Good For High Elevations
We purchased this for use in several raised beds in a hoop house. We live at over 7,100 feet. It starts easily and runs great. We have some rocks in our compost and once in awhile, one gets lodged in the tines. Being able to pull the key and slide the tine off makes getting going again easy. Very glad we purchased this machine.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Durable, Fast

Great Little Work Horse
A friend of mine has this same tiller, I borrowed it a couple of times. I found that I love it so much that I bought one of my own.

Mantis 7940 Really Works
This product is very easy to assemble and get running after unpacking the box. So far it has been very easy to start and operate. It has a short pull, so be careful not to pull it too far like starting a lawn mower. The little Honda engine has excellent power. After starting, it is very quiet at idle. The throttle and hand grips are excellent and offer good control. The tiller tines are rather thin and light, however after tilling and cultivating my 20 x 40 garden are still intact after... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Hops around due to light wieght

This Is The Best Mantis Ever
I've owned Mantis since they came out, but this Honda powered four cycle is the best. No more mixing of gasoline and storing separate gas cans. Easy to operate and to start. Much less temperamental than the two cycle machine.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store

It Is Wonderful!
It was very easy to put together, with detailed instructions. Starting the tiller was so easy too. My old tiller required much more muscle to get started, till and carry. This one starts with a gentle pull, is lighter to carry and works the soil with ease. I'm definitely glad I chose this model. Plus, an added bonus is the kickstand.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations
