SOURCE: I need some help with throttle assembly for Mantis tiller

Here is an opportunity for the Mantis Company to do the right thing. The design flaw with their tiller is the plastic throttle handle. If the tiller is bumped or banged against the deliberately poor designed part and it breaks you are forced to buy the entire poorly designed assembly ($45.00) so they can earn greater revenue. Designing something to fail goes way beyond the design redundancy mode of most companies these days. They are therefore a leader in the mediocrity field. Not the list I would want to shoot for. They should sell just the part that failed due to the poor design. I realize this would cut into their revenue. Don't they think that I will think twice about buying another Mantis product given the stupidity of their design staff? I am glad that the Mantis customer service person took so much enjoyment in the failure of their product and the admitted frequency with which this issue occurs and the problem it has caused their customers. Sounds like poor design is not the only problem Mantis has within their company. My suggestion - Buy a product from a company other than Mantis.

How do I change the throttle cable on a Mantis Tiller SV6 engine?


It depends on the replacement cable. If you see the plastic parts on the new cable, then you don't need to retain them from the old cable. If the new cable does not have the plastic parts, you will have to swap in your old plastic parts onto the new cable.

I hope this helps,

Tiller runs at full throddle and tines continue to turn. Unable to lower throddle. What do I do?


Sounds like the throttle cable is sticking or the carburetor butterfly is sticking.
Squirt some WD-40 into the cable that attaches to the throttle handle and onto the mechanism the cable hooks to at the carburetor. Carefully actuate the throttle and see if the mechanism is moving smoothly. It may need several squirts and some actuation before it become free.

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.

My Mantis Tiller 4cycle engine starts well but when I press the throttle completedly, the tines turn very slowly. This is a brand new tiller, used only twice. The engine is sitting all the way down on the...


I had same issue with my 2 year old 4cycle. Check if the carb is moving full stroke with throttle movement. I had almost no movement at carb at full throttle, found the trigger in throttle handle was cracked and bent rather than pull cable. I called mantis and they promptly sent a new handle bar ***'y with new cable, throttle ***'y Etc and that solved my problem.

BTW: If you cannot wait, I did figure out that if I pushed the carb to open with the throttle trigger fully pulled it would run at high, but when you let go.....LOL

Squeeze throttle engine doesn't increase/tines don't turn


Most likely the throttle shaft on your carb is stuck from residual fuel. Follow your throttle cable down to your carburetor and see if the shaft is moving when you press the trigger on the handle. If not, try moving it by hand and see if it loosens up. If not you may have to take off the air filter cover and spray some carb cleaner in the throat of the carb while moving the shaft back and forth until it loosens up. That should work for you.
