Question about Craftsman 8.50 Torque Rating Dual Rotating Tine Tiller
I get the tiller going, while plowing the tiller is weak. When I release the engaging bar, it will not retract. The cable stays loose, and the tiller keeps on going, but still weak. Theres no spring on the lever of the cable. Should there be? Please help before weeds take over my garden!
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.
