SOURCE: have a rototiller it moves ok but the tines do not

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.

SOURCE: Yard Machines rototiller front tine- having problems starting

Sounds like you are either losing your "prime" or your carb needs either, cleaning, rebuilding with a kit. Probably a cleaning will do it. Watch U Tube there are wonderful people who film the whole process from tear down, to replacement. Com'on! Get into it its easy and it don't take long. Then you'll always know how to do it!

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.

MY ROTOTILLER RUNS AND DRIVES BUT THE TINES WONT TURN


Make sure that the clutch doges as I call them are engaging properly. Also check rear tine gearbox for striped gears or sheared keys. To check some of these things it may be necessary to remove rear tine gearbox by removing the 4 bolts that hold it on to the main transmission. Hope this helps.

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.

Racing high and low throttle


This erratic idling on my machine usually settles once I put it to work. With a load the engine finds it's air/fuel balance and should work better. hope this helps.
