Question about Mantis 4-Cycle Tiller

Unable to determine mfd date to order correct engine flange

I have a Honda gx22 powered Mantis with a cracked engine flange. Unfortunately, don't know the mfd. date. I looked for the "SV" number but must be looking at something else as it doesn't correspond with the numbers I found on the Mantis parts site. Since I didn't purchase the machine new, I don't have any manuals, papers etc. to help.

If you could still bolt the engine down on this broken flange just put a big washer over it to hold it down
or find a good welder,,,and weld it back on? then put a big washer over it!

Engine runs tines dont


The following was extracted from the Mantis owners manual..

At some point, you may find that the tines won't turn when you press the throttle. This may mean the engine isn't sitting all the way down on the worm gear housing. Perhaps you've been using your Tiller
for several years. Or perhaps you've removed the engine for use with the Mantis hedge trimmer attachment, then replaced it. In either case, the flange bolt may have come loose and lifted the engine up.
If this happened you'll notice a gap between the bottom of the engine clutch case and the top of the worm gear housing.

To fix this, loosen the flange bolt. Take the engine off the worm gear housing. Notice the hex head on top of the drive shaft . Inside the clutch case, you'll find the clutch drum. Make sure the hex head
lines up with the clutch drum inside the clutch case. Then put the engine back on the worm gear housing. Make sure the plastic carrying handle is not under the fuel tank. If you've followed these steps properly, there will be no gap between the clutch case and the worm gear housing. Make sure you tighten the flange bolt.

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.

MANTIS TILLER WITH HONDA GX25 ENGINE STARTS FINE BUT WHEN GIVEN THROTTLE DIES OUT. ALSO A LITTLE WHILE BACK OIL WAS COMING OUT OF CARB BUT THIS HAS NOW STOPPED. THIS IS A 4 STROKE ENGINE WITH APPROX 4...



I also have Mantis tiller for 2 years. From the very beginning I had a problems. I was referred by Mantis to the repair store and was charged $90.00 for oil drainage. The second time I was waiting for handle replacement for ~ 1 month. This tiller can't handle even little jobs and the warranty doesn't worth a dime. Maybe I will be more successful using it in my living room . I have an equipment with Briggs and Stratton engines and I never had a problem.

To me Mantis mean big advertisement and waste of money.

I have a mantis tiller, the tines won't turn, the engine IS seated to the flange. any ideas on a fix?


If the motor rpms up without drag it might be a bad gear in the transfer case or a broken cable if it's a cable drive, could also be a bad or stuck clutch. Hope this helps

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?

Mantis tiller blades


Common problem with these small tillers.
The gear box needs replaced or repaired.
But first try removing the muffler and see if it helps any as it could be the muffler is stopped up since it runs a gas/oil mix.
