Mantis, a leading manufacturer of tillers, composters and other outdoor power tools, has announced the launch of the Mantis 3000 Series tillers, which includes the Electric Tiller/Cultivator (3550) and the 58V Cordless Tiller/Cultivator (3558). These new products bring enough power to tackle multiple gardening and digging tasks, without the gas, fumes or noise.
The Mantis Electric Tiller is powered by a clean and quiet 120V electric motor, while the Mantis Cordless Tiller features a 58V rechargeable lithium ion battery that delivers up to 30 minutes of full-power performance. Both tillers feature push-button starting and a two-speed motor that delivers the right power for the job. Consumers will appreciate the quiet operation of these compact, efficient digging machines, plus there’s no need for refueling and oil changes.
Living up to the Mantis name—known for high-quality tillers—these models both feature a generous 12-in. tilling width and 8-in. tilling depth, for fast, impressive results without spending all day on the drudgery of digging and weeding. They both offer two-speed options, so users can manage the power of the machine to match their job requirements. As with all Mantis tillers, these new mini-tillers can do more than just dig. Weighing only 24-26 lbs and sporting 16 sturdy, steel, power-trowel tines, they can be used to re-establish garden beds, cultivate and power-weed with ease.
“We’re pushing boundaries with these new Mantis products, taking them beyond gas-powered offerings and further beyond expectations,” said Walt Schoenborn, Mantis brand director. “With these, and all of our products, we encourage our users to take them out of the garden and test their capabilities around their entire yard.”
The powerful 3000 Series tillers offers comfort and mobility, featuring ergonomic loop handles with padded grips and an easy-engage throttle. The handles also fold down easily for storage and transport, so they are ready to work wherever and whenever they’re needed.
