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

New Garden
Great little machine. I'm 79 and it handles great for my garden which I had to start new since I lost the land where I previously had gardened.

Now I have a 16' x 32' raised bed a 16' x 16' strawberry bed and an 8'x8' asparagus bed which I just planted.. It has been easy to start and handle. Hope it lasts for several years-----

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.

Husband Commented
My husband does not like gardening. Every time I asked him to help me prepare or dig the garden soil we usually had a quarrel or argument. Now, he goes to get the mantis and worked quietly without us arguing. He just go and kept tilling the garden soil.

He said to me, with a big smile "Of all the tools you bought for the past years? This mantis is the best garden tool we have ever had, then said to me" How and where in the world you found this!" "I just love to kept... more

So Far So Good
Only used twice so far but seems of good quality so far. Has good power to weight ratio, is perfect for my already established garden beds.

Also considered a full size tiller but glad I chose the mantis instead. If it lasts in the years ahead then it will be a very good purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Fast, I'd Buy It Again

# 7940 Four Stroke Garden Getter
received on time delivery, set up was easy requiring minimal tools, add oil and non- ethanol fuel (my choice) and your tilling.
First time out this thing is a weed killing machine and dig in deep is easy with a vacuuming style motion. Deeper rocks that had not been bothered by the Horse tiller were detrimental to the Mantis tines with two of them breaking the tips off the end of two tines.

After the initial round through the entire garden and removing a couple fist size rocks I have had... more

Happy At Last
Ive had a 2-cycle Mantis tiller for many, many (frustrating) years. I always loved the job it did in actually tilling the soil but was always frustrated by the difficulty in starting it and in keeping it running long enough to finish the job. The choke was extremely fussy and could never be totally opened up even after the engine was warmed up. It never would idle without dying. When I saw that they now had a 4-cycle Mantis with a Honda engine, I decided to give it a try.

It arrived with... more

love this tiller-- lightweight, simple to use.... a real workhorse. dethatcher attachment works great-- if it lasts even 10 years (I know people that have had theirs 20!) it will definitely be worth the price. quality is always worth a little more-- no one likes working with junk! this tiller is high quality
