Question about Mtd Super Bronco Rt Tiller

2 Answers

Yard Machines/Tiller I purchased the tiller online through a local Craigs list . com and I think I've tried everything to engage the tines but i'm not having any luck, because I did not recieve the owners manual either but it's got on the outside of the machine: chain drive counter rotating tines 18in. width 5.5 hp. Briggs & Stratton OHV and it's also a rear tine tiller. You can get back with me at : pghiii@peoplepc.com soon I hope.

    but werr are those bolts at ?

    myself and others have experienced this issue on the 18" MTD tillers, basically an primary gear which drive the tines from the same gearbox which dirves the wheels, has broken. the good news is, well, there isn't any good news. the bad news is that the gearbox itself is at the core of the machine, so everything else has to come off to get to it, and depending on the gear which has broken the replacement part could cost between $50 and $450 dollars, ha, yeah, who would pay that much for a gear, I guess it would be easier to just buy another til....OHHhhhh! They got me!!!!!!!!!

The tines are usually connected with shear bolts designed to break away when u hit something as a safety precaution so that u dont break anything in the transmission. its common that people dont know this and replace them with normal bolts. if this was done and the tines are not moving now chances are uve got a snapped gear shaft

The fork/shift lever is wore out, and they tend to bend from people slaming it, and getting to high on the tine position

I have a Yard Machine rear tine tiller that has sat unused for 4 years. I replaced the engine and while in goes forward and backward, when I engage the tines they won't rotate and the engine bogs


Transmission/differential.
Perhaps the unit sat for 4 years because the tines would not turn and your replacement engine has not solved the real problem.
I'd say disassemble the chain case to discover what's locking the tine drive.

The tiller won't stay in gear for the tines to turn. It jumps into forward without turning the tines.


Check the wire to make sure that when you engage the tines it is actually engaging the lever. This seems like your are either low on the fluid for the trans or it is stuck in place and will need some good lubrication and turned by hand. You can also with the engine off, engage the tines, and try to turn it by hand. if it turns by hand then the tarns is no good.

I have a MTD yard machine rear tine tiller. Goes forward and reverse but tines wont rotate. How do I fix?


You will have to get into the gearbox. It isn't too hard but is time consuming. Sounds like the drive for the tiller has broken. Could just be the chain in the gearbox for the tiller drive.

MTD series 410 rear tine tiller drive wheels slip


I have the same issue with one I am working on. It appears the keys in the drive shaft are not rotating far enough out on the drive gear side to fully engage in the gear. I have studied and studied this and so far I have been unable to determine why. If I find out I will let you know. I am also trying to figure out what is supposed to pull these keys out of the till engagement gear.

Broken clutch cable connector, MTD Tiller


I found micro fiche on jackssmallengines.com . Click on the manufacturer's tab at the top of the page then you'll have the option to use an off-site tool to locate your machine. I used it and found my 1990 mtd rear tine tiller. I needed the cable that engages the tines - maybe the same as you. The part number for my 1990 model's cable was 746-0535. Dont know if it was still the same in 96 to 98. But look at the fiche and see.
