The air filter should be replaced. Also remove the old gas and put in new from the gas station.And if you didn't change the spark plug from last season, do that so as it is another cause that stalls your tiller.
Let us know if you want something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thanks for contacting

My troy-bilt 8hp tiller starts and runs good but after about 3 minutes of tilling it dies

Could be a number if things..the filter may be pluged or restricted the fuel pump if it has one us going bad..or if it does not have a pump..and by what you are saying you might have dirt in the carb bowl causing the float that supplies enough fuel under power to stick. This will let enough gas to start and run but under power essentuliy run out of gas temperarly...the carb will need to be cleaned and adjusted..Hope this helps...good luck.

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.

The Carb is either cracked or needs to be rebuilt - OR - you might get luck and just blow it out with a professional dose of AIR from a larger compressor like used at mechanics shops.

If you choke or prime the engine, it starts up for a second or two and dies, the carburetor need to be cleaned/repaired.
