Tonight I put a new carb, fuel line kit, and air filter on my parents Mantis tiller. About $50 and the thing tube like a top. Took maybe 1/2 hour to do and adjust the carb so it runs right. Years past I've spent hours working on the thing, running to town for a chunk of fuel line and it'd only run for a couple weeks.

Hopefully it'll run longer than that now. It's been a finicky machine ever since it was a year or 2 old.

We have one of those also and your right about it being finicky.
Last year I replaced the housing and bearing for the shaft and
tines. They just do fine for small jobs.

Mom went to a dance recital for my oldest brother's daughter today, and was telling him what i did to their Mantis. Turns out he's got one too that won't start this year. I called him up and talked to him some, he's gonna drop it off on his way through next week.

I'll probably just give it the same treatment and get it over with. Charge him for the parts and he'll buy me a round of golf some time. Sounds good enough to me...

Have the same type of problems with ours. Ran fine for years, I mean like 15 years, now it doesn't. New fuel lines, carb rebuild, all that jazz. I think a new carb is next. And yes, I think it's the fuel today. But it's a handy little cultivator.
