If it's a belt drive motor, you have either worn a bad spot on the belt or sheared a key off a shaft. If its a top motor bottom drive tiller, it will be the clutch where the shaft of the motor goes into the gearbox of the tiller. Let me know if this helps :)

It appears that the gear case on your model is not capable of being serviced. The cost is over 300 dollars. There is a shear pin or similar connection in the case where the shaft connects to the pulleys. It has broken off and the shaft has no torque now.

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,
TF

Just bought an older Mantis 2 cycle tiller. The tines engage when the tiller is started. Of course that makes it hard to start with the tines on the ground! I don't believe it was doing this when I...


if the idle is too high the tines wont stop due to the tiller tines are run by a "centrifuigual clutch" which means when you increase the throttle speed the tines will start to turn : there are 2 adjustments you can try,1) adjust the idle screw under the carburetor where the throttle adjustment and a triangle piece of metal touch(your throttle cable wire will be attached to this triangle) ,if the triangle and idle adjustment don't touch and there's a gap between these 2 pieces close the gap by adjusting the 10mm adjusting nut,this will correctly set the idle #2) adjust the idle adjustment screw talked about above till the tines dont turn with throttle set at idle or lowest speed setting

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

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


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.

I bought my troybilt rear tine used. When I use it to till new ground (sod) it cuts fine for a few feet, then without warning, it gets on top of the ground, and I can't do anything to make it cut. The...


Hello, I think if you look at the depth setting bar you will find it clogged up with grass and roots. Once it clumps up you can't get it to drop to depth to make the cut. There are two speeds for the rear times for the toller which will make it go forward more slowly and allow the dirt clods to break up better. Also cut the grass as short as you can, make a shallow pass with the tiller 1" to 2 " to cut the heads off the roots and then go to depth with your next cut. This should pretty much break up the cloding when doing the tilling. Also watch it because it is hits a rock it will jump up and drag you away at the speed of the tines, because it lifts the drive wheels off the ground and the times drive the tiller instead. Other than that mine used to chew up everything including wet DG. Good Luck, RAC
