I have a Troy-Bilt PTO Horse (Horse III) 8HP TINES

I have a Troy-Bilt PTO Horse (Horse III) 8HP Electric - bought new 1987.

The man who bought it is dead, but it has a really good looking set of tines on it with the original tine hood; however, when you use it, it sligs dirt everywhere and you hear dirt/rocks striking the tine hood.

I wonder if he put too large/long tines on it. I cannot find the specifications/dimensions for the tines that are supposed to fit the tiller. I don't want to order a new set of tines to just check the dimensions of the existing ones.

I need the measurements of the tines that fit it.
Like:
1. the thickness at the heel end (where the
bolt holes are),
2. the width at the heel end where the
bolt holes are),
3. the distance from the heel to the tip of
the tine (the hypotenuse.

Thanks,
Donald Cox

The tines are very close to the housing and sometimes you do get rocks hitting,as for the dirt it should have side panels to keep the dirt in place.

Troy-bilt horse engiine runs good , tines work,


The wheel shaft on a Horse tiller is one piece so if the shaft turns on one side it will turn on the other. make sure the pin that holds the wheel on is not missing that would let it spin on the shaft.
That's the only thing I can think of that would cause that problem. Hope that helps.

New tines now gets away from me


double check to make sure you have the new tines in the right direction. also you could try to raise your machine, as the new tines are digging better it might not have to be as low as you had to go with your old ones.

Grinding when Engaing PTO for the tiller-Troy Built Horse 8hp


It's likely that your clutch needs adjustment. To adjust, you just need to loosen the two screws on the plate and slide it a bit so the clutch better engages the rear dog clutch. Have you ever taken the tiller portion off the transmission to grease the clutch? If not, before adjusting it you might want to do that. It could be that the clutch isn't sliding back far enough to engage the rear end and a little grease is all it needs. This service requirement is explained in the owners manual for the tiller. One last point, the tiller must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch. From your note, it sounded like you were engaging the clutch with the forward/reverse lever in the forward position. The lever must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch.

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.

Troy bilt horse pto clutch will not disengage


The problem is lack of lubrication in the pto coupling. Losen the two swing bolts carefuly,block the front under the motor. Separate the tine transmision from the housing and grease both sides with as much grease as you can work in. Work the lever as you do this. Should fix the problem.
