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.

SOURCE: 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.

If you lent your tiller to your "know it all"


While having your brother buy you a new tiller sounds good, it just might not be practical or posible. So drain the fuel from the tank, fuel lines and the carb., clean the spark plug and replace fuel filter if installed. Put the proper gas in and start it, should be good or clear up pretty quick. Hopefully it did not run with the wrong fuel for too long where the spark arrestor in the muffler would get clogged up.

Good luck.

Honda mini tiller cuts off when start tilling. runs great when held above ground with no load. cut off seems to be associated with the movement and shacking when tilling ground.


Hi thermo259, sounds like the high speed adjustment is lean, find the high speed screw and turn it counter clockwise 1 half turn and see if that helps. Should cure it.

MTD series 410 rear tine tiller drive wheels slip


I have the same issue with one I am working on. It appears the keys in the drive shaft are not rotating far enough out on the drive gear side to fully engage in the gear. I have studied and studied this and so far I have been unable to determine why. If I find out I will let you know. I am also trying to figure out what is supposed to pull these keys out of the till engagement gear.
