SOURCE: Mantis 2 cycle - tines lose power.

I had this problem today. Loosen the flange bolt. Pull the engine off and check that the hex end of the shaft is lining up with the clutch pad in the engine-that it seats properly. Then make sure the shaft is seated all the way into the worm gear and put the engine back on. You will probably have to wiggle the shaft until it seats into the clutch. Tighten the flange bolt when the engine is seated flush with the worm housing (with no gap). That's all I did and the power is back up. Hopefully you still have your manual with the parts blow-up. (page 29?) BTW, have you checked that the wormgear is greased?

Need to know oil / petrol mix for Mantis 2 stoke Tiller

it is a 50:1 gas:oil mix. I'd also strongly recommend adding a fuel stabilizer to the mix, as a tiller has a tendency to sit for long periods without being used. Good luck!

How much gas to mix the oil in?

First check that your Mantis needs an oil/gas mixture, most of the newer Mantis tillers have four-stroke motors meaning they have oil in the crankcase and use straight gas. If your Mantis needs oil mixed in the gas use a 50:1 ratio. That's usually 2.6 ounces of two-cycle oil (it's sold in bottles that size) to one gallon of gas but read the oil bottle to get the proper mix ratio.

White smoke honda mantis rototiller

You're okay the white smoke is the oil burning off the muffler. In time it will stop, just park it somewhere and let it run until it's done. If the problem persists check your air filter and make sure it's not stained with oil, if so you can wash the foam part with soap and water but the paper will need to be replaced. (DO not put foam back on unit until dry.) The oil level should be up to the bottom lip of the dipstick access when the engine is evenly horizontal.

Gas mixture 50/1 how do I get a 50/1 mix?

2.6 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas. But I would suggest you mix it at a 40:1 ratio, which is 3.2 oz 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas. Unless it is a piece of equipment bought at a dealer it is made differently than one made for a big box store.

Where do you drain oil on honda gx25 mantis

jj505 has good and bad information.
Honda GX25 is a 4 stroke motor, with oil lubricated crankcase.
Oil drains out the filler.
Oil and gas do not mix on this four stroke.
The PDF below is the Honda manual.
