Mantis Tiller Parts

Updated on August 18, 2013

How to get parts to fix your Mantis garden tiller

I've had a Mantis tiller since 2005, and over that time I've had to replace the usual "maintenance" parts - spark plug, filters etc - but also some bigger and more major parts. Frustratingly, it's usually when I pull the tiller out to fire it up and use it in the spring, that I find some essential piece has died and I have to mail order a replacement and wait for it to arrive! That's my own fault of course, for not checking it over before I need it.

This page shows you the various attachments and parts available for your Mantis tiller, and where to get them. If you're interested in learning more about Mantis tillers themselves, please visit my Mantis Tillers page.

Mantis Tiller Parts

If you only need Mantis-brand accessories, or the basic parts, or you're happy to order direct from the Mantis company, then getting parts shouldn't be a problem. On the other hand, if you want to get parts locally, or you need something RIGHT NOW YESTERDAY, things may not be so easy.

First, the basics. Attachments like the dethatcher, plow, etc are available direct from Mantis or for rather less cash, from Amazon (see listing below). The Handy Item Kit for each model is also available from Mantis or Amazon. Sparkplugs (Mantis recommends only Champion or NGK brands) are widely available. Model numbers needed are detailed here.

The "Handy Item Kits" for the 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines are different, so make sure you get the right one for your tiller! They both are indeed handy, with a good selection of items, though if you buy more than one kit you will end up with spares of some things. Who needs two sparkplug wrenches?!

2-stroke Handy Item Kit

Here's what you get in the 2-stroke Handy Item Kit:

  • 6 bottles 2-cycle engine oil (2.6 oz each, sized to mix with 1 gallon of gas)
  • 1 spark plug
  • 2 air filters
  • 2 oz. tube of transmission grease
  • 1 transmission gasket
  • 2 tine retaining pins
  • combo sparkplug wrench
  • fuel funnel

4-stroke Handy Item Kit

The 4-stroke Handy Item Kit has slightly different contents, mainly oil:

  • 2 bottles of 4 cycle engine oil (2.6 oz. ea.)
  • 1 spark plug
  • 1 air filter pad
  • 2 oz. tube of transmission grease
  • 1 transmission gasket
  • 2 tine retaining pins
  • combo sparkplug wrench
  • fuel funnel

Other parts for the engine and the rest of the tiller are available direct from Mantis here, along with links to good references on maintenance, how to locate the SV number (model number) of your engine, and a troubleshooting FAQ.

Mantis 811005 Tiller Storage Rack

The Mantis tiller storage unit securely hangs your Mantis Tiller out of the way. Ideal for garage, shed walls or use with a pegboard, this set lets you hang tiller attachments from the rack too. Screw the rack into the wall at the centerline of studs, 16 inches apart, or bolt a wooden mounting board to the wall and screw the rack to it.
