  • FAQ

    1. Can I use the Electric Tiller in wet soil, or in mud?

    Yes you can. Remember to keep the tines, and the area around the transmission and fender, clear of packed mud for maximum efficiency.

    2. Is there a circuit breaker, fuse, or other quick shut-off feature?

    Yes there is a built-in circuit breaker. Additionally, when you release the trigger, the power shuts off. There’s also a built-in lockout trigger that prevents you from accidentally squeezing the power trigger without having a full grip on the handle.

    3. Does the Electric Tiller use air filters?

    The motor is protected by an internal and external housing to minimize exposure to dust, therefore an air filter is not required.

    4. What happens if the Electric Tiller gets wet?

    The areas most sensitive are the motor and circuit board, which are protected by an enclosure. As with any electrical product, don’t use it in the rain. If it does get wet, we recommend you not operate it until it has dried.

    5. Why does the unit come with a two-prong power-supply cord instead of a three-prong plug?

    The Mantis Electric Tiller is double-insulated and is electrically safe. It was engineered with two barriers of insulation, based on the design of the handles and the housing. We’ve taken this extra step so it is not necessary to rely on the use of a three-prong plug.

    6. What type of cord is supplied in the Cord Management Kit?

    We supply a three-prong extension for your convenience. The Cord Management Kit is also useful for other electric-powered gardening equipment, such as a string trimmer or hedge trimmer, which may not be double-insulated.

    7. How fast do the tines spin?

    The tines spin at up to 240rpm. They cut through tough sod and clay soil like a chainsaw cuts through wood.

    8. Does the Electric Tiller use the same “push forward/pull backward” motion as the Gas Tiller?


    9. Can I use any type of extension cord with the Mantis Electric Tiller?

    Based on the total length of cord you are going to use, be sure the cord meets the minimum cord gauge requirement. Refer to the following:

    1’ to 25’ 18 gauge
    26’ to 50’ 16 gauge
    51’ to 100’ 14 gauge
    101’ to 150’ 12 gauge
