How to prepare your Mantis Tiller for the Service Check
Drain the fuel from the tank. Remove
the air filter cover by squeezing the
plastic tabs on top of the cover.
Loosen the outer nut on the throttle
cable on the curved brass tube using a
10 mm spanner, at the bracket on the
engine cover.
Detach the throttle cable from the
brass throttle swivel on the
carburettor. Using a small, flat
bladed screw driver push the cable
nipple out of the slot on the swivel
plate.
Pull the cable carefully downwards
and out towards the back of the
engine.

Detach the earthing cable by hand by
disconnecting the red plug under the
machine.
Important:
Do NOT use pliers to split the
connector!
Use two 11 mm spanners to remove the
two long bolts at the base of the handles.
Remove the handles from the gearbox
case. You now have the motor with the
gearbox in front of you. Refit the air
filter cover back into place and secure.
Pack the motor into a rigid cardboard
box and pad it out with newspaper,
card, cloths or packing foam. Please
remember to remove the tines before
packing.
Call 08009 88 48 28 to have your box
collected (48 hours notice, UK
mainland only).
Important:
•
Stick your address and client’s number to the engine.
•
Enclose the Special Offer Service Check Card with your
address and the payment details filled in.
•
Should you not have this card at hand, add a sheet of paper
containing name, address, phone number and client number.
•
If necessary, add a note stating whether the machine is defective
and make a note of any explanations you think might be useful to the
service technician.
•
Please enclose any relevant paperwork, your order form and
payment details in an envelope attached by tape to the top of the
tiller’s air filter cover.
