Make sure there are no leaks in the bulb. Did you reattach the fuel lijnes correctly? You should feel resistance after pushing 3 or 4 times to ensure fuel is getting to the carb. If necessary replace the bulb. Otherwise check with Mantis at www.mantis.com or give them a call for troubleshooting assistance.

My mantis tiller with a honda gx22 engine starts then shuts off after approx. 30 sec.


If your unit has a primer bulb, start your engine . When it starts to die push your primer, if the engine comes back to life you have a carb issue.
