Question about Husqvarna PRRT850X 960920015 CA 17" Rear Tine Tiller

1 Answer

Rototiller pull start won't pull

This tiller has an 8hp Tecumseh engine. (GardenWay rear tine) It hasn't been started in two years. Started pulling on the crank and then gave it a rest. Went to pull again and the crank simply won't turn. I can't get any length pulled on the pull start. It's as if there's a safety on it somewhere that's in the locked position but I can't figure it out.

Throttle is open, choke on full, clutch is disengaged.

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

First thing to do, if you haven't already, change the oil, and remove all 'old' gas.
Then, after that's done, remove the plug, in order to de-pressurise the cylinder.
Then try to crank it again.
If it turns, then clearly, it's not ceased.
Remember, don't loose you're patience, just take your time.
Good luck with that:)

Sounds like you are either losing your "prime" or your carb needs either, cleaning, rebuilding with a kit. Probably a cleaning will do it.

Can't start my Troy Built Tuffy tiller. I haven't used it for a year, but it started fine last season. I replaced the spark plug, changed the oil and air filter and filled it with fresh gas. When I pull...


First pull your spark plug out reconnect to the plug wire and ground tot he engine body
Pull the starter cord and see if you have a good clean spark that goes to the electrode and not to the side of the spark plug.
If no spark check your off/on switch

I need a new belt on rototiller.


To replace your tiller belt you will have to :
Take a few pictures before you get started so you know how everything goes back together.
- 1) Remove the belt guard
- 2 ) Loosen the belt pulley and remove spring, remember how this was attached.
- 3 ) Pull the belt through housing and off of the transmission pulley.
Now grab your new belt and install in reverse order.

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.

Tiller won't start.


I recently had the same issue with a tiller that hadn't been started in over 8 years. Turns out that old gas had left a varnish coating in the carburator keeping the gas from feeding. Rebuilt the carburator with new float, needle valves and bowl, new Welsh plug. Fresh gas and two pulls later it went to churning. Took a short time to adjust the two needle valves for idle and full throttle and we went a-tilling.

Despite changing the sparkplug and proper choking, etc. no start


The most likely culprit is a clogged carb - a very common problem indeed on Tecumseh motors. Pull the carb off, open it up, spray everything with cheap carb cleaner (especially the bottom "bolt" that hold the float cover making sure it sprays out of at least two sides as that "bolt" is also the jet), make sure everthing lines back up as you pulled it apart and now try to start it up again! Bet it works, I see it all the time on small engines left with small amounts of gas in the system. Good luck, and I hope that gets ya runnin!
