Craftsman rear tine tiller


If you cant move the tines by hand then I wouldn't think you sheared the pins, more like a gear box problem.

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.

Tines rotate slow when I try to till.


The clutch is non adjustable if the clutch fails you will have drive all the time or it slips. if the tines spin at the same speed with the engine at low and high speed the clutch might be slipping, the common cause for this is the gear box is partly siezed due to no grease being pumped into it, most ppl dont even know about this untill its too late. you have to remove the LH side tines to get to the screw.

My tiller does not seem to be cutting deep enough


Hi there kimberly,

Here's what you need to do.
  • Make sure the depth stake (behind the tines) is up as high as it will go. This will allow the tines to go deeper.
  • Fire it up. Set the tine rotation to reverse (more mixing and twisting.
  • Make sure the tines are actually turning, Each side is held in place with a shear pin. In case something binds the blades, this pin breaking will save the drive train
  • Note how the tiller is balanced. Wheels in the middle. You can tilt it forwards or backwards.
  • Tilting forward allows the wheels to gain traction and move the unit forward
  • Tilting Backwards allows the tines to dig in. If the surface is too hard, Press down with your body weight. It will dig through.

I hope this work out for ya

Best regards
Mike

Check under the metal or plastic cover just behind the engine. This covers the forward and reverse belts. Your belt either broke, jumped off fthe pulley, or needs a tension adjustment.

Tiller will not till in forward motion.


sounds like your drive belt is worn or the handle bar adjustment is too tall and your handle is not adjusted.

Crt or srt tiller?


* CRT or SRT -- These are two terms you will see on rear-tine tillers only. o Counter Rotating Tines are best for heavier duty jobs and for breaking new ground. o Standard Rotating Tines are good for aerating the soil and help propel the tiller forward.
