Troy-Bilt or Mantis?
I'm in the market for an electric tiller for a few reasons: I don't want to fiddle around with a gasoline engine and the associated maintenance(our mower and trimmer are both electric too); I won't be using it for huge expanses; and I'm 5'2" so I don't want a pull start and I do want something I can easily manage (as opposed to the tiller managing me).
I'll be using this mostly to work in compost in existing beds, but I'll also be creating some new beds along the edge of the lawn (though the soil is pretty soft and the grass isn't dense sod).
In the $200-$350 range it looks like the Troy-Bilt and Mantis get good reviews.
Any recommendations or trade-offs between the two? Are there other brands I should be looking at?
