I just got my tiller back from a want-be-repair man and now it won't stay engaged when I begin to till. Also, even with throttle on the fastest (fully open) it won't go faster than snail speed. I only wanted oil and spark plug changed as I never had any problems with it prior. Any ideas what he did to it?

I'm not sure what he did but you sure should run it back down to him and tell him to make it right. I know it is more work for you but it is the right thing to do.

Tiller has been sitting up for some time and now won't engage into forward or reverse.


Hello. make sure all of your clevis pins are in place. And on mine even if i get it in gear...make sure that the "dead man" is cable connected for sure. Make sure when you squeeze the "safety stop" or "Run/engage" lever that it is actually moving a lever at the other end. If so? Then trans box is next to inspect. But that would have had to suffer a hard jam to damage that. And again with other people I've seen this a hundred times with rear tine tillers. Sometimes it just "cogs out" into a state of "bad mesh" with the gears and all that is needed is to push or pull the tiller a bit while you try to engage the shifter. The wheels just have to be rolled a tiny but and you'll free up the meshed gears. Happy tilling. Four thumbs up will truly be appreciated. Thanks. Joe

Belt will not tighten when tines are engaged


There should be a spring on the other end of the engagement cable connected to the take up (idler) pulley. It sounds like it have broken or came off. You will need to removed the side cover and inspect. After you have the cover off, pull the engaging bar and watch the take up pulley for correct operation.

Pony wont stay in drive


I would check and see if your cable is binding. If it is binding you may not be getting it engaged all the way. Also you have to rock the tiller back and forth a little while you are trying to engage it or sometimes it will not engage all the way and then will pop out. Also check that the arm the cable connects to at the transmission is free to move in and out of gear. Sometimes those get coroded up. Just spray some penetrating oil on it,the cable and lthe lever. As far as I know there is not a tension adjustment on the cable.

Good Luck!

Grinding when Engaing PTO for the tiller-Troy Built Horse 8hp


It's likely that your clutch needs adjustment. To adjust, you just need to loosen the two screws on the plate and slide it a bit so the clutch better engages the rear dog clutch. Have you ever taken the tiller portion off the transmission to grease the clutch? If not, before adjusting it you might want to do that. It could be that the clutch isn't sliding back far enough to engage the rear end and a little grease is all it needs. This service requirement is explained in the owners manual for the tiller. One last point, the tiller must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch. From your note, it sounded like you were engaging the clutch with the forward/reverse lever in the forward position. The lever must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch.
