If you try to till too deep, this is what will happen. You have to start shallow and and gradually lower the depth on subsequent passes. That will even happen on my 'Horse' model if I try to go too deep too fast.

Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to assist you in solving your problem.

You should have an idle screw adjustment on the carb to adjust the idle RPM. As you pull the trigger, watch on the carburetor for a small moving plate. The idle screw should touch that plate. Be very careful, and have someone hold the tiller and start it. Back off the screw just enough until the tines stop turning. I hope I've helped. If you found this reply useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP, if you feel I've deserved them. Thank you! Dane

Tiller running off, can't control it.


Slowly lower your tilling depth regulator a little at a time. Make a pass or two with it set almost as high as it will go then drop it a couple of notches and keep making more passes over the same ground. If you lower the tines to far down on hard ground it will just take off like you are describing. Just take it slow until you get your ground worked up and then it will work great.

WHEN TILLING TILER WONT MOVE FORWARD WHEELS JUST SPIN. HAVE TO PICK UP ON HANDLE TO GET IT TO MOVE.


Usually this means you are trying to dig too deep in one pass. Try setting the depth such that your first pass only scratches the surface, dislodging grass, etc. Then, on successive passes dig 1-2 inches, this will prevent the tines from "biting off more than they can chew" and holding back the machine. It will take about 4 passes to till one tiller width in "loose"(garden) soil and possibly more elsewhere. Hope that helps.

My rear tine tiller lurches out of control when I use it


Hi it sounds like you are trying too till the soil with the tiller in the fast position and probably too deep for your first pass. Really the fast position is for transporting the tiller from the field. Try putting the tiller in slow which would be the down position. Turn the throttle all the way foward, engage the tines and push your depth rod on the back down to where it is only going into the soil about four inches or even less depending on the hardnes of the soil. Even though a Troy is the best Tiller made it will try to run away with you when your trying to hog the soil all at once. Your depth setting is very important and people seem to forget the importance of adjusting it. Try these things, and remember to alway's start your tilling in the slow full throttle position. Lowering your depth a little at a time. Till you find the appropriete feed for your speed.
