I would pull the tines off of the transmission. You probably have some debris wrapped around the transmission drive shaft(s).
Please let me know.

Mantis tiller Idles fine, and can even rev... sometimes, but has no power.


check the diaphragm in the carburetor making sure it isn't stiff. depending on how long it has sat, the carburetor may need a cleaning and kit then readjust it to get it to run. Mantis tillers are very temperamental and can be difficult to get to run again even for experienced technicians

Can not find my manual for the mantis tiller..forgot hot to start it up for the first time


You should be able to go to the Mantis web site and download the owners manual. To start, make sure the switch in turned on, push the fuel primer bulb several times (until you feel resistance), pull the choke out all the way and pull the starter rope until it fires. Then, push the choke half way in and it should start. Let it run a 30 seconds to 1 minute and then push the choke all the way in. Be sure you are using the currect fuel/oil mixture with fresh gas and oil. If you have not done so already clean the air filter and replace the spark plug at the recommended interval.

Engine stalls out after 15 to 20 seconds of run time


get a carb kit new fuel lines.new fuel filter, air filter clean the tank and carb install new filters and fuel lines and you should be good... or you could first try pouring the gas in a clean clear container and see if you have water sitting in the bottom, then you could get a way w changing the gas you might have to let it stall out on you a couple times before you get rid of the water in the lines and carb run it on a littl less than 3/4 choke.

Mantis tiller keeps shutting off


One screw is fuel and one is air, try turning the screws in all the way then open three turns and start from there.

Difficulty adjusting carb for smooth idle and full power tilling


Your quickest fix for this problem is to simply replace the carburetor, a Zama K54A. Do it all the time. After that, if you can find a 2 cycle oil, Opti-2, it's the best you can use and it's a one mix for all your 2 cycle equipment (blowers, trimmers, chainsaws, etc.) It's the only 2 cycle I sell in my shop.
