My troy-bilt 8hp tiller starts and runs good but after about 3 minutes of tilling it dies


Could be a number if things..the filter may be pluged or restricted the fuel pump if it has one us going bad..or if it does not have a pump..and by what you are saying you might have dirt in the carb bowl causing the float that supplies enough fuel under power to stick. This will let enough gas to start and run but under power essentuliy run out of gas temperarly...the carb will need to be cleaned and adjusted..Hope this helps...good luck.

I need a new motor for horse model, serial no. 360331. which models fit this troy built.


Just about any engine with a 3/4" horizontal shaft that is internally threaded on the end and has the four bolt mounting pattern around the shaft will work. I have gone to Harbor Freight and purchased their 6.5 H.P. engine that is a Honda clone and it will work fine and only costs $100-150 dollars. The only difference is that it uses a metric bolt to hold the pulley on the shaft,the four mounting bolts are metric and you have to disconnect the low oil shutoff or the engine will die when you are tilling deep. It is a good low cost option for the Horse tillers.

Tiller going too fast.


Is this a Troy Bilt tiller? If it is, there is a'freewheel' position on the high/low lever which is the center. The tine won't turn in this position. It sounds like you are trying to till too deep too quickly which will make the tiller lunge forward. Try making multiple passes ,gradually getting deeper.

Troy bilt jr tiller


If you try to till too deep, this is what will happen. You have to start shallow and and gradually lower the depth on subsequent passes. That will even happen on my 'Horse' model if I try to go too deep too fast.

Troy Bilt tiller dies when I engage the tines.


Bogging down may indicate debris or old gas in the carb. Try doing a carb cleaning, and add a small amount of Seafoam gas additive to your gas.

WHEN TILLING TILER WONT MOVE FORWARD WHEELS JUST SPIN. HAVE TO PICK UP ON HANDLE TO GET IT TO MOVE.


Usually this means you are trying to dig too deep in one pass. Try setting the depth such that your first pass only scratches the surface, dislodging grass, etc. Then, on successive passes dig 1-2 inches, this will prevent the tines from "biting off more than they can chew" and holding back the machine. It will take about 4 passes to till one tiller width in "loose"(garden) soil and possibly more elsewhere. Hope that helps.

My rear tine tiller lurches out of control when I use it


Hi it sounds like you are trying too till the soil with the tiller in the fast position and probably too deep for your first pass. Really the fast position is for transporting the tiller from the field. Try putting the tiller in slow which would be the down position. Turn the throttle all the way foward, engage the tines and push your depth rod on the back down to where it is only going into the soil about four inches or even less depending on the hardnes of the soil. Even though a Troy is the best Tiller made it will try to run away with you when your trying to hog the soil all at once. Your depth setting is very important and people seem to forget the importance of adjusting it. Try these things, and remember to alway's start your tilling in the slow full throttle position. Lowering your depth a little at a time. Till you find the appropriete feed for your speed.
