Question about Mantis 2-Cycle Tiller

1 Answer

I have a 21.2 cc engine mantis #7225-16-03 and the issue I have is after the motor warms up and I try to turn the choke off and rev the motor up it stalls out. I was told perhaps the spark arrestor was clogged and before i remove that I would like some advice. The unit has less than five gallons through it, we use the oil purchased from Mantis and keep the fuel clean, mixing ratio is 50-1. Spark is good , plug is fine. Please respond with your advice

After hour or two car will miss, almost felt like a fuel/air issue. Then acts like transmissions gone. As I accelerate it revs and shifts. (transmission guy said its a newer tranny, not the problem).


there is a few cars that will rev like this that is the auto choke to some engines coming into play (mostly noted on a dodge 1500 v6 mag year model 2000) this is sometimes normal as the auto choke will rev the motor for a while or so before letting the motor calm down per-say as the motor is warming up

Brand new mantis motor/started when i got it let set for a couple months wont run it will start on choke


The first thing I would do would be to dump out all of the old gasoline mix from the tank and replace it with fresh gasoline mixed with the proper amount of 2-cycle oil.

I recently tuned up my blower. It starts great but if I turn it off Nd try to restart it it floods and will not start until I let it sit for awhile.


If the engine is warm and you shut it down, leave the choke off, lower the revs and start it. (when the choke is wide open you are using the fresh air coming in to dry the spark plugs and prevent flooding). If the motor is already flooded use that procedure to dry the plugs, then go back to full choke until it tries to start and quits again, then use half choke and pull one more time... works all the time.

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

Starting manual for mantis


all of the mantis tiller manuals can be found here:
http://mantis.com/mantis-owners-manuals.asp
just pick out the appropriate one and away you go.

as far as starting it goes, make sure the switch is set to "I" and not "O" (top handle.) be sure you have gas in it, pull out the choke knob (front of the tiller) and depress the bubble once. pull the engine cord until the machine tries to start, then push in the choke and pull again - the engine should start within a couple of pulls. let it warm up before you try to do any tilling, and you're good to go!

New honda hrr auto choke hard to start


sounds like it may need the carb clening out, but it could be the auto choke not closing when cold. there was an issue with some of the early auto chokes on the gcv135/160 engines so check to see if the choke flap is in the closed position when starting from cold, run the engine for approx 10-15 minutes and see if the choke flap has opened fully.leave it to go cold and see if the choke flap has returned to the closed position

Older Mantis 2 cycle must be choked to run


look on the side of the carb for 2 small adjusting screws they will be almost touching( they will have springs on the threaded part of the scews) the heads will be small 3/16 " open these counterclockwise, this allows more fuel in. The one closest to the engine is for the idle mixture the other is for high speed , tilling speed. 1/2 to 1 turn may help, good luck . try PER small engine tecnical forum online

1984 aspencade starts w/choke and revs up, runs smooth. Take off


My 'wing won't run unless it has been warmed up some. I would suggest that you r&r your carbs to make sure the jets in the bottom are working correctly. They tend to get plugged up, especially after sitting & the aluminum flaking off inside... Rick
