SOURCE: My rear tine tiller lurches out of control when I use it

Hi it sounds like you are trying too till the soil with the tiller in the fast position and probably too deep for your first pass. Really the fast position is for transporting the tiller from the field. Try putting the tiller in slow which would be the down position. Turn the throttle all the way foward, engage the tines and push your depth rod on the back down to where it is only going into the soil about four inches or even less depending on the hardnes of the soil. Even though a Troy is the best Tiller made it will try to run away with you when your trying to hog the soil all at once. Your depth setting is very important and people seem to forget the importance of adjusting it. Try these things, and remember to alway's start your tilling in the slow full throttle position. Lowering your depth a little at a time. Till you find the appropriete feed for your speed.

SOURCE: Troy Bilt Tiller tines do not engage

You likely have a clutch problem, never saw one that a simple adjustment would fix. I'd take off the tiller (there are two bolts that hold the tiller portion to the transmission, and check to make sure the clutch is sliding in and out. My hunch is either the lever is loose on the shaft or the allen-head little bolt that they use to shift the clutch has come out. Be sure to grease the clutch while you're in there.

This should be covered in your owners manual. Shame on them if they didn't mention this.

SOURCE: I need to replace the seals on my Troy-Built Pony

I presume you opened the port and removed the grade 8 placement bolt? If you have then you need to polish the shafts with 400 then 800 sandpaper, clean then lube them before trying to slide thru the support bearings. If your tine shaft is bent? your screwed, or just remove the shaft seals with a screwdriver and replacing them without removing the shaft. REmember to put a thin coat od RTV arround the outer lip to help make a better seal

This is as close as I could come to your exact model from this site. This is for a 8HP Briggs Horse model with rear tines. I hope this can help you. This site (the manuals site) needs to update to newer models. First a link to the site I use and secondly, the PDF online file of the 8 HP Tiller for you.

I have a 1940s rear tine tiller that runs great. I have to replace a tire. I removed all the lug nuts with no problem, but the wheel will not pull off the machine. There is a cap in the center of the


If it has lug nuts then you have a sperate hub and wheel get out your big hammer rust is holding it together. Wouldn't hurt to spray it down with penetrating oil the day before its hammer time. I always find striking a wheel from the rear on the tire is the most leverage.

Husqvarna shear pins break within minutes


if we are speaking about the shear pins on the tines, the ground is the problem and you need to begin your first pass on a more shallow setting and progress to a deeper setting gradually. if we are speaking about the shear pins on the tires w/o engaging the tines then these should not be breaking and I recommend that the tiller be examined by an authorized dealer.

My mtd yard machine bogs down in the tilled /cultivated dirt. the belly support is only less than 2 inches to the bottom of the tires! when I till the next row the tires just turn freely and I have to...


Sounds like a depth adjustment or a leverage problem.
Check your manual to see if you are able to lower the tines to a deeper position.
There usually is also a handle adjustment to raise the handle to get more leverage. (Not all Models) By pulling back on the handle it forces the tines into the soil and raises the tires. This allows the tines to agitate and do the work while at the same time walking the machine forward. When you push up on the handle the rubber tires provide traction and forward movement and less digging on the tines.
Method: Possibly by allowing a little space between passes your wheels won't hang up in the previous dead furrow. You can then go back over the skipped spaces or cultivate from the other direction and a criss cross pattern.
Best wishes,

Hi! i have older troybilt rear tine tiller and would like tires and if possible a owners manuel the only serial # i could find is 464932. do you have access to older parts for equipment such as mine?...


http://www.mtdparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OperatorManualView?storeId=10101&catalogId=19502&langId=-1

Go to the above website and put in your model and serial number. If it is a Horse tiller just type in Horse and your serial number and you can download a copy of your operator manual. If it is the Horse model it was built between 1/1/80 and 7/1/80. i believe you have a Horse II four speed model that will just have one drive belt the older Horse I tillers were two speed with two belts.
Most any good tire shop can supply tires for your tiller or you can order them online and take then to a shop to mount for you. If your tires are not real bad they can just put tubes in them so they will hold air. Almost all parts are available through MTD who owns the Troy Bilt name now or through many sites online.

Good Luck,

Frank

We are trying to remove the wheels and tines from the craftsman roto tiller in order to replace a broken drive chain. We are having a very difficult time getting the wheels and tines off. Any suggestions?


there should be a cotter pin or pin holding a large washer once you have removed these then you have to get the wheel to slide off the axle it has a keyway on it.i have taken a hammer and hit one side of the tire on the backside then turn the tire half way round and hit the tire from the backside and walk the wheel off the axle.if the axle is rusty shoot wd-40 around the axle and wheel .the wheel should slide back on as you line up the keyway when putting them back on.if your going after the chain the tines will have to come off too and the chain box split
