Question about Mantis Gas Mini Tiller/Cultivator, 2 - Cycle
Check the exhaust side of the tiller. There are 3 screws on the muffler cover that need to be removed, then there is a cover on the spark arrestor that also has 3 screws to remove. Inside this is a small screen (the spark arrestor). Take it out and clean it with a good solvent (I use carb cleaner). This is the easiest and least expensive fix.
If this doesn't work you may need to rebuild the carb. I have found it is easier and costs about the same thing to just replace the complete carb.
The company will tell you to make sure you always run the carb dry before storage, but I have NEVER done that as I believe it dries out the gaskets. I just use STA-BIL gasoline stabilizer before I store it for the Winter and keep it setting level in storage.
