If you leave the choke on 1 (wide open to air) does it engage? If you are careful, you can remove the Air Filter and try pulling it over. This will provide adequate Air to the Gas mix and allow the engine to run. ** MAKE SURE there is NO dirt near the filter housing or you will **** dirt into the carb. If this works, you have a speck of dirt in the carb....... THIS IS ONLY TO TEST, do not use this in the garden or you will **** in dirt.

Have a sears craftsman 6.0 rear tine tiller.


Hi little,

The 7.0 hp version does the same thing.

I found that it was caused by the transmission not being fully engaged to a particular setting. when it tries to engage the tines in both forward and reverse, the engine stalls immediately.

After taking to neutral and back a few dozen times I got a 'feel' for it. Has happened in over a year.

Try it. It did take patience.

Best regards

Tiller starts easily but cuts out when engaging tines - 3.75 HP


First, check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

If they are o.k., then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. If the carb. has a foat, then you can use the Den tek Brush on the jet as well. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Maxim tiller won't run


Try better quality gas. I had the same problem. Ethanol too high in lower grade gas. Buy better grade or ethanol free. Mine works fine with better gas.
