About Your Warranty
The warranty period begins on the date of purchase by the original customer from an authorized Mantis dealer, retailer, or from Mantis.com and is not transferable. Warranty service must be performed by an authorized Mantis service dealer or authorized service center. If a warranty replacement becomes necessary, the authorized dealer or service center must be prepared to provide the physical component for verification (freight prepaid) upon request from Schiller Grounds Care. Warranty service will be performed without charge to the original purchaser for parts and labor. The original purchaser is responsible for the expense of delivering the equipment, part, or accessory to and from an authorized dealer’s service center. The purchaser is responsible for any premium charged for overtime labor requested by the purchaser and for any service and/or maintenance not directly related to any defect covered under this limited warranty. Proof of purchase will be required to substantiate any warranty claim. Without proof of the initial purchase date from an authorized dealer or seller, the manufacturing date of the product will be used to establish the warranty period. Warranty communication and transactions are limited to the authorized service center staff and Schiller Grounds Care.
This warranty only covers defects in materials or workmanship.
Engines and Other Manufacturers – Schiller Grounds Care makes no warranty with respect to engines or engine parts such as spark plugs, lubricants, starters, and carburetors. The engine warranty is covered by the engine manufacturer. Consult the Operator’s Manual for the engine provided with your product or ask an authorized dealer for the terms and conditions of these warranties. Schiller Grounds Care makes no warranty with respect to other parts not of its manufacture such as tires, batteries, gearboxes, or similar.

This limited warranty does not cover damage caused by the use of parts, supplies, or accessories, including, without limitation, filters, spark plugs, carburetors, ignition, drive belts, brakes, gasoline, fuel, oil, or lubricants, which in the reasonable judgment of Schiller Grounds Care, are either incompatible with the product, adversely affect its operation, performance, durability or are other than as recommended in the Operator’s Manual or other operational instructions provided by Schiller Grounds Care.
