    Homelite Tiller HTC-12 works ok until tines hit the dirt - then it bogs down like it has no power. Can it be the gear box or clutch? The same thing happens when trying to use the dethatcher attachment. What do I do??

I have the same problem and the toggle switch on the handle needs to be replaced. I could really use a manual for this unit. Anyone know what I use for fuel? How I mix it? Any other info would be appreciated.

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.

remove the spark plug and pull it to force any fuel and oil from the cylinder hold a rag over the top of the spark plug hole as fuel and oil will spray out check the oil level before running the engine again

Homelite htc 12 tiller.. motor runs ok but tines wont turn under load free wheeling they turn but under load no clutch?


Hi bh1149...
You have bad gears on the inside of the tiller gear box...
I had this same problem with mine.
You will have to take the gearbox apart in order to know what parts are bad.
Be sure to check the lube more often when you install the new gears/parts.
Go to the following website and order your parts.

Tines stop under load


you have to get someone with a big tractor to "break" the ground up first. A tiller is just that...Not a plow

Looking for a primer pump for Homelite htc12 tiller


Hi, I live in cedar rapids, Iowa. I just bought a primer bulb for my htc-12 homelite tiller. You should be able to order as many as you need, but I don't have the part #. Find out what the part # is and call this # 1-319-393-0443. They have 2 sizes, the bigger one is for the chain saws, the small one is for the tiller.( they have both) Carefully pry the plastic band off the primer bulb, press the new bulb through the band, then go get a tube of permetex weather strip adhesive ( orange box, black adhesive). Don't buy any other brand!. Lay a thin bead around the base of the bottom of the ring, press into place and let dry for a couple of hours. This adhesive works on almost any thing, and is not affected by gas, oil, or anything.

Tines won't turn.


Sounds like you hit something (like a rock or a big root) to make it Stop suddenly and smash one of the gears in the housing, The shaft that runs through the housing has a brass gear that is easily damaged when it comes to a sudden stop from hitting something. Snow blowers are famous for this problem.
