Troybuilt garden tiller keeps cutting off

Every time the tines start to get into the ground, the tiller cuts off. The ground is NOT hard. This is VERY frustrating. Takes hours to do a small patch.

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.

SOURCE: Where is the model number on my troybilt rear tine tiller?

If it's as old as mine (circa 1976), it's stamped on the casting right below the T-handle that allows the handle bars to pivot (also the gear case fill cap)

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.

Tiller running off, can't control it.


Slowly lower your tilling depth regulator a little at a time. Make a pass or two with it set almost as high as it will go then drop it a couple of notches and keep making more passes over the same ground. If you lower the tines to far down on hard ground it will just take off like you are describing. Just take it slow until you get your ground worked up and then it will work great.

My tiller does not seem to be cutting deep enough


Hi there kimberly,

Here's what you need to do.
  • Make sure the depth stake (behind the tines) is up as high as it will go. This will allow the tines to go deeper.
  • Fire it up. Set the tine rotation to reverse (more mixing and twisting.
  • Make sure the tines are actually turning, Each side is held in place with a shear pin. In case something binds the blades, this pin breaking will save the drive train
  • Note how the tiller is balanced. Wheels in the middle. You can tilt it forwards or backwards.
  • Tilting forward allows the wheels to gain traction and move the unit forward
  • Tilting Backwards allows the tines to dig in. If the surface is too hard, Press down with your body weight. It will dig through.

I hope this work out for ya

Best regards
Mike

I bought my troybilt rear tine used. When I use it to till new ground (sod) it cuts fine for a few feet, then without warning, it gets on top of the ground, and I can't do anything to make it cut. The...


Hello, I think if you look at the depth setting bar you will find it clogged up with grass and roots. Once it clumps up you can't get it to drop to depth to make the cut. There are two speeds for the rear times for the toller which will make it go forward more slowly and allow the dirt clods to break up better. Also cut the grass as short as you can, make a shallow pass with the tiller 1" to 2 " to cut the heads off the roots and then go to depth with your next cut. This should pretty much break up the cloding when doing the tilling. Also watch it because it is hits a rock it will jump up and drag you away at the speed of the tines, because it lifts the drive wheels off the ground and the times drive the tiller instead. Other than that mine used to chew up everything including wet DG. Good Luck, RAC
