Default Problems with Mantis tiller

zxcvbob expounded:

It needs a new carburetor. They only last one year no matter how well
you take care of it, winterize it, etc; just long enough for the
warranty to expire.

I'm going to disagree with this. I had a regular Mantis for seven
years, kept it in the cellar over the winter, and it started every
single spring. Maybe mine was made on a Monday, I dunno. It got
crushed two years ago when a tree fell on my shed. I've got the Honda
engined one now, it's also troublefree.
