Loose drive belt on my 1990 Horse model tiller. The belt does not seem to be worn, is not cracked or burned, but is too loose to drive the tiller tines or the wheels.

As I recall, there is an adjustment on the wheel that puts tension on the belt. Look to see if you can figure it out. Watch the wheel as you pull and push the lever. It should be pushing the belt very tight. Take a look. If you cannot see how I would recommend you go to a store that handles them and ask questions. Be suprised how much you can get from a salesperson even though you are not buying. Good luck...Lee

Drive belt is slipping when under load. How do you tighten the belt. thanks, Ted Troybilt Horse rear tine tiller


hi there, ive been doing a bit of head scratching over this one as i needed to check my facts. i think the belt has a automatic spring loaded adjuster so it sounds as if you need a new belt for it.
good luck

I am currently looking at buying a troybilt horse with serial # 340455. Can someone let me know what year this is?


That tiller was made sometime between 7/1/78 and 1/1/79. This is the Horse II model and is a four speed one belt tiller. The Horse I was a two speed two belt tiller. These are very good tillers if they have been reasonably taken care of.

Hi! i have older troybilt rear tine tiller and would like tires and if possible a owners manuel the only serial # i could find is 464932. do you have access to older parts for equipment such as mine?...


http://www.mtdparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OperatorManualView?storeId=10101&catalogId=19502&langId=-1

Go to the above website and put in your model and serial number. If it is a Horse tiller just type in Horse and your serial number and you can download a copy of your operator manual. If it is the Horse model it was built between 1/1/80 and 7/1/80. i believe you have a Horse II four speed model that will just have one drive belt the older Horse I tillers were two speed with two belts.
Most any good tire shop can supply tires for your tiller or you can order them online and take then to a shop to mount for you. If your tires are not real bad they can just put tubes in them so they will hold air. Almost all parts are available through MTD who owns the Troy Bilt name now or through many sites online.

Good Luck,

When the clutch is disengaged the tines still turn.


If you email me at fbarnes@mfa-inc.com I have a couple of Econo-Horse manuals that I downloaded that I can email to you. They don't really have a clutch just belts and pulleys so its probably just needing a new belt or a belt tension adjustment. I have a Econo-Horse tiller and it is a nice machine I think mine is about the same age as yours.

Good Luck,

Go to this website and type in Horse for your model number.Just put thenumber 1 in for your serial number and it will bring up several horse tiller manuals. If yours is a 1976 then it should be
a Horse I model. This should be a two speed tiller and have two drive belts.

I need to find out what size belt for tine engagement on a Dayton 5hp Tiller model # 32885 C144B


a simple way to figure out the length is to engage the tine mechanism and take a string and wrap it around the pulleys mark it and take it to any belt store, and buy the Belt you need. You will need to know if it's a 3/8s or 1/2 inch drive belt. Normally tine belts are half inch or 5/8 wide on a 5 horse power motor, You can get these belts at sears or Nappa auto parts store. hope this helps.

Can i see the models from 1983 to 1985,i need a belt so i can use reverse again but i dont now my model or size. my husband died 3 years ago. if i could see some pictures from the 1980's mine has a potatoe...


Your question doesn't give enough detail to properly answer. Do you know if the tiller is a Horse model or a Pony model? Troy Bilt made both models back in the timeframe you noted. The Horse model had tires that required air to inflate. The Pony model likely had hard rubber tires in that era. The Horse models had a reverse disc, no belt. The Pony had a belt.

Once you know which model you have - look for your closest Troy Bilt dealer and see if they can track down the part for you. They might appreciate it if you could provide the serial number - which is located on the pipe connecting the tiller transmission front half to the back half, where the tines are located. It's stamped right into the metal tube on both models.

The tines on my troy built Horse tiller do not grb when tilling. Are the gears in the drive shaft the problem? How do you fix this?


Since there is no grinding noise, if the problem is in the gear box it isn't too severe. There is a slight possibility that a tooth or two has been broken off one of the gears. But it sounds more like you have a worn drive belt. Most of the time when the tines don't grab or they slip it is because the drive belt have become worn in some way. If it is suppose to be a one-half inch wide belt it could have thinned to a three-eight inch allowing the belt to drop further into the pulley than needed, or it may be "sloppy", not tightening enough to operate the tines if it has stretched. The right belt is very important and is an easy fix. I hope this helps.
