Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

Left wheel does not turn, axle turns but wheel does not turn.

I have a Craftsman 5.0HP rear tine tiller and the left tire/wheel does not turn. I see axle turning, but tire/wheel does not turn. The cotter key (not sure what else to call it) outside of hub was gone, but I put a piece of steel thru openings, but still the tire/wheel does not turn.

You need to remove that wheel and replace the key stock
the axle and wheel should have a factory slot cut in the drive axle and wheel itself
1/4 inch key stock is the most popular and it can be found at most hardware stores.
You also could have what some would call a half moon keyway in the center of the shaft which you cannot see untill you remove the wheel.

Have a 7.0 craftsman tiller the tines go into gear but the wheels will not engage


I have a similar unit and it will require getting into the gearbox which is not an inexpensive venture. Just to be sure though, make sure the shear pins in the axles are ok. Hopefully it is just a bent/broken shifter in the gearbox but a shop visit will still be expensive if you cant do it.

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

I have a craftsman 19 in dual rotating tines, rear tine tiller. # 917-293493. In mid till, the tines quit turning. Won't shift into any gear. Wheels are locked. Any ideas?????


It is going to be a transmission issue. You can try with the engine off, turning the trans pully by hand in the opposite direction that the motor was turning it.
Some gears in the trans got crossed up and locked.

Wheel shaft seals on troy bilt pony 7 hp.


If the seal fits over the axle shaft it should be ok. be sure your axles are very clean as not to ruin the new seals when applying them. probably a good idea to replace them as a pair (right and left side) to save you time down the road.
