Not really sure what you're asking, but counter rotating tines turn the opposite direction you're traveling.

Hi,
Can you move the tines by hand???
They should turn by hand if you try to move them...if not then they are bound up by something...
either a bearing has gone bad, something has wrapped around them, or there is something stuck in there that will not let them turn...check for a rock stuck between one of the tines and the housing around them...

Get the tines moving freely and you will be okay again...

If you cant move the tines by hand then I wouldn't think you sheared the pins, more like a gear box problem.

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.

I have a 19" 7 horsepower dual rear tine tiller and can not find out what size belt it takes. It is a craftsman bought at Sears. I lost my manual for it.


If you're talking about the dual-rotation rear tine 900 series, produced by AYP, sold by Sears as Craftsman, also sold by Husqvarna, the actual belt size is 51-3/8". A 51 should work.

I have a craftsman 19 in dual rotating tines, rear tine tiller. # 917-293493. In mid till, the tines quit turning. Won't shift into any gear. Wheels are locked. Any ideas?????


It is going to be a transmission issue. You can try with the engine off, turning the trans pully by hand in the opposite direction that the motor was turning it.
Some gears in the trans got crossed up and locked.

Tiller will go into every gear except forward/till..whats going on?


check the shift lever where it goes into the transmission. a lot of times, the lever will get sloppy where the roll pin goes through and it won't shift into till. sometimes you can drive the roll pin out, pull off the lever and peen the holes over. sometimes you have to drill the lever and shaft and put in a snug fitting bolt and nut. OR, the chain driving the tines is broken, and that means a new transmission. hope it's simple

Tines only spin in the T position.with cutch engaged.If thats not it split the case and check to see the shift fork operating properly. Or that chains are not broke. NOTE This is a serious job!!!
