I am about ready to purchase a garden tiller. I need something that won't shake me around like a rag doll,easy to handle and can dig down 6-10". From experience, which brand would you recommend? Thanks:)

I have an electric Mantis. It's small compared to the gas powered ones, but you need a good sturdy grip and some muscles to handle it. Once it gets going it will dig pretty deep, we tilled 8-10" in clay soil relatively easily. It will just keep digging down if you let it.

It does not handle sod AT ALL. You have to remove the grass and roots first. And it does not handle rocks either.
