SOURCE: Mantis Tiller

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

SOURCE: trouble starting old Mantis tiller 9012 - don't have a manuel -

Mantis has the owners manuals in pdf format available for download on its website. The tillers are here (I hope the link to the tiller group works...if not, just go to the main site and look for "owners manuals" link.

Also, you can call a number and get a representative who usually can help at the numbers listed there, find authorized service people if its not something you can do yourself, order parts and find detailed schematics in the owners manuals. My dog actually ate mine. LOL. But they are free, the owners manuals, unlike other places that charge you for them like they were a "part".

SOURCE: Mantis tiller will start and idle, but once you

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.

SOURCE: Mantis tiller starts but will not stay running

Carburetor problem. Two stroke engines use oil mixed with gas. Old fuel or setting over the winter will cause varnish and sludge in the Carburetor. Start by buying a can of carburetor cleaner and mixing a new can of fuel.
1) Dump the old fuel and check replace it with new.
2) Remove the air cleaner.
3) Pump the prime bulb 3 or 4 times, set the choke, spray the insides of the carb with the cleaner and then try and start it . It should sputter and run for a few second but chances are it will take a few sprays to clean the jets

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.

Starter rope hard to pull on mantis tiller


Sounds like your engine may be seized up. Mine did the same thing and I had to replace the block. If any dirt gets past the air cleaner or if your fuel mixture isn't right it won't take long to lock it up. If you need info on where to find parts, let me know. Good luck.

Mantis tiller will not start. Cannot get primer bulb to draw fuel.I replaced all of the lines,primer bulb still won't work. Tiller will start by priming cylinder by removing spark plug. Help?


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.
