Re: Mini Tiller/Cultivators
I had a neighbor who swore by Mantis.
Me, wanting to minimize engines to maintain, bought a grass trimmer with tiller attachment. Works great, but the weight of the engine is on the wrong end to be helpful (need it at the tines, not the top of the pole). In tough soil, the tiller won't dig, it just bounces over the top.
I add weight (ankle-wraparound exercise weights) to the tiller end, which helps with the digging; but you still have to lug that extra weight around, and the engine weight is just extra burden.
