the tines are usually connected with shear bolts designed to break away when u hit something as a safety precaution so that u dont break anything in the transmission. its common that people dont know this and replace them with normal bolts. if this was done and the tines are not moving now chances are uve got a snapped gear shaft

First check for spark, if you have spark than you can try spraying a little fuel into the carb and try to start it if it starts then dies its the carb

SOURCE: Honda GX25 HG110 mini tiller, tines won't turn.

Mine did the same thing....two things to check: 1) air cleaner, make sure that it is clean 2). gas filter in the gas tank. Take a short piece of wire and fish the black line out. On the end is a small fuel filter. After I flushed mine fuel filter out it ran fine.

SOURCE: Troy Bilt Tiller tines do not engage

You likely have a clutch problem, never saw one that a simple adjustment would fix. I'd take off the tiller (there are two bolts that hold the tiller portion to the transmission, and check to make sure the clutch is sliding in and out. My hunch is either the lever is loose on the shaft or the allen-head little bolt that they use to shift the clutch has come out. Be sure to grease the clutch while you're in there.

This should be covered in your owners manual. Shame on them if they didn't mention this.

Mantis will only run when the choke is on. If I try to push the choke in it dies.


Having owned a Mantis for many years it sounds like your air/fuel mixture may be to lean when you push the choke in. First check the simple stuff. Make sure you are using fresh fuel with the proper 2-cycle oil mixture. Check or replace the fuel and air filters. Replace the spark plug annually. These are the routine maintenance procedures found in your owner's manual. If none of this solves your problem either the carb fuel mix adjustment screws are not set properly or a carb rebuild kit is needed. The proper setting for the mixture screws should be detailed in your manual. Removing the carb and replacing the needle valves, gasket and other items takes a little more expertise. Before jumping in to this and assuming all other maintenance has been performed press the fuel primer bulb several times before trying to start it. You should feel resistance after 3-4 pushes. If you don't feel any resistnace the carb is not being primed and the bulb needs replacement (you may notice a small fuel leak if this is the case). If you can get it primed, pull the choke out, start and let it run a minute or so. Then make small, gradual changes by turning the fuel mix screws (not the idle adjustment) as noted in your manual. Try to push the choke in half way or as far as you can without killing the engine. If may run a little rough but continue tweaking the screws until it smooths out a little. Gradually continue pushing the choke in and turning the adjustment screws as needed to keep it from stalling. This is best done with the tines supported off the ground during adjustments. Just make sure to protect yourself and others from coming in to contact with them. When set correctly you should be able to achieve full throttle with the choke fully closed. A little time and patience should get you up and going again. Of course you can always contanct Mantis at www.mantis.com or call them for troubleshooting assistance. Hope this helps.

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.

DRAINED GAS FOR WINTER IN CRAFTASMAN REAR TINE TILLER. PUT GAS IN WOULDN'T START. SO PUT GAS IN CARBURETOR, WOULD START BUT DIED AS SOON AS USED UP GAS. TRIED SEVERAL TIMES. SAME THING. IT'S LIKE IT ISN'T...


You drained the fuel but sounds like you did not run fuel out of carb. the carb is probably just clogged either take off carb and clean thoroughly or just try to take off the screw on the float bowl and clean it there are little holes on it that are most likely plugged up. Good Luck...

Loose drive belt on my 1990 Horse model tiller. The belt does not seem to be worn, is not cracked or burned, but is too loose to drive the tiller tines or the wheels.


As I recall, there is an adjustment on the wheel that puts tension on the belt. Look to see if you can figure it out. Watch the wheel as you pull and push the lever. It should be pushing the belt very tight. Take a look. If you cannot see how I would recommend you go to a store that handles them and ask questions. Be suprised how much you can get from a salesperson even though you are not buying. Good luck...Lee

Yard Machines rototiller front tine- having problems starting


Sounds like you are either losing your "prime" or your carb needs either, cleaning, rebuilding with a kit. Probably a cleaning will do it. Watch U Tube there are wonderful people who film the whole process from tear down, to replacement. Com'on! Get into it its easy and it don't take long. Then you'll always know how to do it!

How to start a Troy Bilt Tiller


make sure there is fuel and oil in the engine. There should either be a choke lever/setting or a primer bulb. Push the primer bulb, if there is one, or choke the engine. Make sure it is in neutral, and pull the starter. Should be all there is to it. If there is other info that is causing the machine not to start, please tell model number and what you have done in trying to start.

My rear tine tiller lurches out of control when I use it


Hi it sounds like you are trying too till the soil with the tiller in the fast position and probably too deep for your first pass. Really the fast position is for transporting the tiller from the field. Try putting the tiller in slow which would be the down position. Turn the throttle all the way foward, engage the tines and push your depth rod on the back down to where it is only going into the soil about four inches or even less depending on the hardnes of the soil. Even though a Troy is the best Tiller made it will try to run away with you when your trying to hog the soil all at once. Your depth setting is very important and people seem to forget the importance of adjusting it. Try these things, and remember to alway's start your tilling in the slow full throttle position. Lowering your depth a little at a time. Till you find the appropriete feed for your speed.
