Green Thumb Dubl-Tine rototiller won't freewheel

I bought this tiller used. There's no manual with it. When I want to move it, I have to start the engine, engage the clutch and walk it at a snail's pace to where I want to use it.

I'm wondering if there's a lever somewhere that will alow me to 'freewheel' the axle (without starting the engine) and just push the tiller to the worksite at a quick pace.

Lots of info here, check your Green Thumb Roto Tiller's "Model #" (for example mine is #53GT-F) , and look on the site I linked to , good chance they have it in their database, have a ODF exploded view of it , and have parts available.

Hope this helps.................Blake

You can turn the wheels around and it will free wheel but you would have to turn them back around when you get ready to
till the ground. when the wheels are reversed you can push it without the motor running. hope this helps

New tiller makes grinding noise when trying to run tillers


if it has a clutch
most small units just run a dog that you engage with a swift motion at low idle speed of the motor
have the tillers free above the dirt so they can turn with out any load to inhibit the dog engagement

My Earthquake Rear Tine Gas Rototiller - 196cc Viper Engine 4-cycle just makes a squeeling noise and tines won't rotate.


Sounds like the belt is slipping. Have you removed the belt cover and inspected the belt and the tensioner pulley ? If your model is like mine the tension can be adjusted just below the handles by looseneing the nut where the cable goes into the cable sheath and moving the cable cover further away from the handle. That takes up some slack and will make the tensioner pulley tighter on the belt. If the belt is shot tension isn't going to help.
Try "google" with "earthquake 5070 manual" first option should be a PDF copy of a model 5070 manual. Will have diagrams on how to adjust the cables.
