There should be a cotter pin or pin holding a large washer once you have removed these then you have to get the wheel to slide off the axle it has a keyway on it.i have taken a hammer and hit one side of the tire on the backside then turn the tire half way round and hit the tire from the backside and walk the wheel off the axle.if the axle is rusty shoot wd-40 around the axle and wheel .the wheel should slide back on as you line up the keyway when putting them back on.if your going after the chain the tines will have to come off too and the chain box split

Worst case scenario, if wheel hub is seized on axle you can try heating up hub sleeve with small butane torch, enough to cause hub sleeve to expand and drive off with hammer on back side of hub while still hot, or grab tire and try to turn on axle to un seize it, it will get tight as it cools so you have to work at it.

Something in the wheels drive is jammed preventing them from turning. That is why the turning belt starts to smoke when it is turning but cannot unstick the wheels. Need to unstick them for unit to 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

I have power to the tines but the wheels are locked


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!!!
