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.

It appears that the gear case on your model is not capable of being serviced. The cost is over 300 dollars. There is a shear pin or similar connection in the case where the shaft connects to the pulleys. It has broken off and the shaft has no torque now.

Have a rototiller it moves OK but the tines do not turn It is a mtd yard machine rear tine


Seems to be a fairly common problem with these units. If the big pulley is turning which I assume it is as the drive wheels work, it is most likely a problem in the gear box. The shift mechanism in these units leave a lot to be desired. You can try to repair it your self or take it to a service center. Labor will be high due to the amount of time required to separate the engine and transmission.

Most of them have a pin to lock the wheel to the axle... Check the center hub of the wheel and see if you can find some kind of hole that a pin would go in to lock axle to the wheel...

Wheels turn, tines don't


These machines have an arm to activate the tines independantly from the wheels, make sure that the tine arm is in the on position.
If not, seems like you have a transmission problem, you'll have to get dirty to fix this one and open up the transmission casing to see if its just the link between the tine arm and tine crankshaft that broke or if its more serious.
