Question about Craftsman Garden
I have front tine 5.0 craftsman tiller.Model # is 917 291480.I was tilling under some small brush area with roots.suddenly the tine stopped rotating.There was some squeaky kind of noise .I stopped the gear throttle whch engages the tine to move. I stopped tge engine.I tried to to manually rotate the tines in forward direction.It won't move .I tried the other way .IT moves with difficulty.But it does the same with forward movement. I do fix the problem. I really need to to prepare my gardens.I just moves in this area last month.
If you cant move the tines by hand then I wouldn't think you sheared the pins, more like a gear box problem.

Can you move the tines by hand???
They should turn by hand if you try to move them...if not then they are bound up by something...
either a bearing has gone bad, something has wrapped around them, or there is something stuck in there that will not let them turn...check for a rock stuck between one of the tines and the housing around them...
Get the tines moving freely and you will be okay again...
