I had the same problem. I laid my Mantis on its side and filled the crankcase to the top. When I tried to start it the oil came dripping out of the air cleaner housing and all over the grass big time. I re-read the instruction manual which CLEARLY states to rotate the Mantis forward on a level surface until it rests on its gas tank then fill the crankcase. I wish they would have put one of those triangle boxes with an exclamation point inside that said DO NOT LAY ON ITS SIDE AND FILL THE CRANKCASE! I bought this Mantis used so I own it now. As I watched the oil running out all over the place I was visualizing the big bill I was going to get from the lawnmower repair shop. WHEW! Thank God this Mantis came with the instruction manual or I may never have figured it out.

also have Mantis tiller for 2 years. From the very beginning I had
a problems. I was referred by Mantis to the repair store and was charged $90.00
for oil drainage. The second time I was waiting for handle replacement for ~ 1
month. This tiller can't handle even little jobs and the warranty doesn't worth
a dime. Maybe I will be more successful using it in my living room . I have an
equipment with Briggs and
Stratton engines and I never had a problem.
To me Mantis mean big advertisement and waste of money.
