Does anyone have experience with a MANTIS tiller?

The Mantis is one tough machine. It could dig a hole to China if you let it. My neighbor (whose track record with anything mechanical is not very good) has one that I use on occasion. It is around 8-10 years old and has given no trouble until last spring. I had to use carb cleaner to start it and keep it running. I bought a new Zama carb online for $35 shipped to me. Got it installed and it starts and runs just fine now. A kit might have done the trick, but I'm happy with the results of the new one.

Make that a WALBRO carb.
