This type of pull starter design is very poor and fails often. Cheap parts and cheap design leads to poor performance and yet Troybuilt still doesn't give free parts or an upgraded design.

On my 4-cycle garden cultivator tb-144 the starter rope pulls free and does not engage when pulling the rope. It's like something is broke.

Sorry Mr. Fixit, I don't think that is what he's talking about. I've got the same problem with my Troy Bilt cultivator. The cord takes back up just fine. It just does not engage the engine. It just free spins.

Replace pull cord


Easy to do - go to Utube and they have the instructional video on how to accomplish this. Hardest thing is to get the cord - Home depot only sells it in 50 foot lengths. But you can get a kit complete with handle for about five bucks same store.

Warm up time on a Troy-Bilt cultivator


I have a Cub Cadet 4-cycle cultivator and it takes a while to warm up as well. I assume that is the norm for those small 4-cycle engines. But it should not take more than 3-5 minutes to warm up enough to go ahead and start tilling. Unless of course you live in a fairly cool climate. In that case it may take a little longer. I live in Tennessee.

Rope pulls but does not trun motor


Recoil may be broken or seized up inside so it won`t work.
I had a lawn mower like that and tore the recoil off and had to repair the flippers inside. Mine had a broken pin.

I have a troybilt tb-144 4 stroke mini tiller. The pull cord, pulls and retracts as it should, but is not engaging the engine when pulled...


remove the top cover. look inside while pulling rope briskly, you should see two dogs fly out and retract when the cord reaches its end. if not, check for dirt in the system and clean out. if no dogs, you will have to remove the system from the housing, be careful of the spring. check for any broken drive parts. also check flywheel cup for damage where the dogs come into contact with it.
