I have a Husqvarna Tiller/650rRTT and it will not shift into reverse. It has not been used much at all. Was working great untill this happened. It still looks new. Any ideas to solve this problem. I have heard these tillers have this problem sometimes. Thanks

The transmission is the main mounting point for everything else on the tiller. Everything needs to be removed from it including : engine, handle, covers, wheels, weights, etc. until you are left with the bare transmission. there will be a set of axles protruding on each side for the wheels and tines. Since replacement parts are available and you have it torn down this far you may as well open it up and see what failed. It may just be a chain, or if its been sitting for a long time and wont shift maybe cleaning and lubing the shift drum will solve your problem. Place the transmission on its side using blocks to level and stabilize it. remove all the perimeter screws, there are a few other bolts which need to be removed as well. split the halves. you will need to work around the perimeter as the seal is quite stubborn. Then inspect the inside for the failed part.
95% of run ability problems are carb related. It needs to be disassembled and cleaned. Do you leave gas in it at the end of season,if yes always drain the tank and let it run till it stops next time before storage. Good luck
it sounds like to me then gears or of in tiller you will probably have to tear it down to get to it. I had to do that once on a sears tiller it is a pain but can be done when u tear it down u mine as well change the chain or belt inside while u have it apart u can go on sears web site and get a diagram that shows how everything goes together might want to have it handy when u tera it down
