For a 4- cycle engine the piston moves up and then down the engine cylinder 4 times to accomplish fuel intake or induction, compression, fuel ignition (combustion) and exhaust. In a 2 Cycle engine this is done in 2 piston strokes (one up and one down the piston cylinder).
Adult mantis can be kept successfully in small fish tanks made of glass or plastic. Alternatively, plastic sweet jars can make suitable cages. Younger mantis will be smaller, and any clear plastic or glass container can make a useful cage.

I have a two cylinder Mantis tiller. It has locked up and the cord is locked. I am unable to pull the cord. Any suggestions? I was in the process of using the tiller when it felt as if it were running out of gas. It stopped on its own, and then it was locked up and I was unable to pull the cord.
ANSWER : Check the oil, if not full fill it, take the shroud off, should be for bolts, fit a socket on it with a breaker bar or ratchet and turn it a few times, then reassemble and start. Hope this helped Tim

When I Start Mantis Tilleer it starts in gear ( tines are turning)
ANSWER : The Mantis has a speed controlled automatic clutch.

Lower the idle speed by turning the idle screw counter clockwise. The idle screw is attached where the throttle cable meet the carb. The screw has a pointed end that resembles a pencil point.

The engine speed should be adjusted just above stalling.

If the tines turn even when the engine pull rope is pulled, the the clutch is defective and needs repairing.
