Tiller Blades not working

I have an older Green Thumb 5 hp tiller. It starts good, but the blades don't run. It is a chain-drive tiller, and I am sure that either the
sprocket(s) are worn or broken, or the chain is broken or just off the sprockets. I have no idea how to get to the chain drive area to find out. Any ideas? I have pictures available if anyone can guide me through it. Or, if I could access a parts diagram, it would be helpful.

Thanks,

Eric

Eric,
I don't have any breakdown any more, but I believe on this tiller the chain box is bolted together with a 1,000 bolts ( well it seems like that many). remove the fender (Shield) and then you can start taking the bolts out of the cover casing of the chain cover. I have found more broke chains than broken gears..
If this helped, please rate this answer.

Ryobi ry60514 is frozen.


Does the engine turn over? If not then it has most likely seized. If the engine turns but the blades won't then make sure you didn't wrap something around the tines causing it to bind up

TILLER WILL START/RUN BUT BLADES DON'T MOVE..TILLER PART DON'T MOVE? MTD21AH413B129287-424


Hello, W/D here.

The motor drives a belt, and the belt drives a pulley that causes a chain to drive the tines (blades). For the belt to drive the tines, an idler pulley has to put tension on the belt. This is moved into position by a lever that pulls the pulley into tension on the belt, and tension is maintained with a spring when the lever is locked into place.
1. Make sure that the tines will rotate with the belt off. If there is difficulty, check for debris holding the tines (roots, etc.). If necessary, remove the cap covering the chain cover inspection port, and with the machine tilted back, observe for proper operation of the chain while moving the tines by hand. Lubricate the chain according to your manual. If your chain is not working properly, disassemble down to the chain case, and inspect the chain and sprockets. Chain is radily at places like Motion Industries, WW Grangier, or a bicycle shop. Often overlooked, check that the pulley set screws are tight, and causing the shaft attached to it to actually rotate. Check the pins and locking cotter pins in the tines, make sure that they are pinned to the shaft.
2. Check the belt. An old belt can stretch to the point where it will no longer work. The "V" belt can also wear down to where insufficient friction can be applied to the driving or the driven pulleys to cause it to rotate.
3. Check the condition of the idler pulley and spring. Make sure that the lever places tension on the belt. It should be somewhat difficult to engage the idler pulley when the belt is new. You may have an adjustor on the idler that will tighten the belt.
Best regards, --W/D-- Please provide feedback for our solutions so that we may continue to improve in helping others. Thanks.

Drive wheels not ternning


Tillers have a handle that you "squeeze to go". The handle activates a clutch, usually through a flexible cable. Does that handle offer resistance about halfway up as you squeeze it?

If not, that cable may have stretched a bit. Try adjusting the clutch by turning the nuts on the threaded sleeve where the cable comes out near the handle, until you get resistance when you squeeze the handle. The cable could also be broken, in which case adjusting won't help, but replacing the cable isn't expensive.

There's something else to check. Tillers have a pin to lock the wheels to the axle. It's right at the wheel hub. The pin can be pulled out to make it easy to move the tiller without running the motor. If you can push the tiller around easily with the motor off, then you may just have a missing wheel pin.

If it's not these simple things, it could be something worse like a problem in the transmission. If reverse works, but not forward, then it's probably the transmission, which is bad news. I hope it's one of the simple problems above.

Please rate if this was helpful, thanks and good luck!.

Blades turn slow and dies out under load


Is the engine running good or misfiring with no load ? Dieing under a load maybe a sparkplug or bad fuel you possibly have water in the fuel ... as far as your tines not turning fast enough this sounds like drive belt related
