Jerry, I just want to service the gear box on my front end tiller, I guess just opening it and adding grease. Anything else that I need to do to this 40 + year old tiller?


Is the gear box still good? In a lot of older tillers the gear boxes go bad. This is normally due to weeds getting wrapped around the tines and rubbing away at the seals in the end of the gear box. If you have to add oil (grease) then the seals are probably leaking. You should not have to open the gear box up, there should be a plug in it. The plug should be about half way between the bottom and top of the gear box. You should be able to fill the gear box up to that plug with a squeeze bottle. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Worm gear has a hard spot, and doesn't turn freely. Tines will run for a short period of time and then stop.


You will probably need to replace the worm gear and any other worn parts in the gearbox. Check your owners manual for part numbers. If extensive repair is needed and your machine is several years old you may be better off with the Mantis trade in program for a new tiller. I found this to be the case with my own tiller last year. Call or go to www.mantis.com.

We have a rototiller, craftsman, bought new at sears several years ago. Model No. 944627591, Craftsman 9 HP, 21 inch tine width, rear tine tiller with counter rotting tines. Pinion input gear is sheared...


The model ID starting in 944 indicates your tiller was manufactured by Husqvarna. This division has since been purchased by AYP. A quick online search finds that www.needlawnmowerparts.com lists having one for $55 plus shipping. I have not dealt with this company, so I can't recommend or not recommend them.
It is very common for tiller makers to not offer internal transmission parts. Transmissions are difficult at best to repair and reassemble. Used tillers are available from time to time, check your local classified ads or www.craigslist.com to find one. If you decide to go with a new tiller, i would recommend trying www.northerntools.com or www.mytsc.com to start your search.
As far as longevity on the new transmission, Sears won't guarantee any of their parts longer than 1 year. However, you should expect a replacement part to last as long as the first one did.
Sears doesn't give year models for their equipment, but usually supports replacement parts for at least 10 years. Most equipment manufacturers don't build their units to last longer than 10 years....they want you to buy another one.
I hopethis has helped.
Good luck!
