Tiller runs great just having a problem with the tines turning plowed my garden last week and for some reason the tines quit turning like its locked or something please help me


Two possibilities. Something has jammed the tines.
Pull the spark plug wire off and tuck it away someplace so as not to touch the plug.
Tip the tiller up and examine the tines for obstacle such as a rock. If there is nothing jammed try to turn the tines by hand. If the they turn freely you most likely broke a shear pin that secures the tines to the axle.Clean the axle and tines and examine very closely for the pin.
If sheared ( broken) you will need to drive the broken piece out and replace the pin.
There may also be a problem in the transmission case. You would need to remove the tines and case to open it

if yes , the motor is not seized but the tines could be
if the motor will not fire ( check spark plug for spark it could be the coil or a short to ground in the ignition on/off switch wire

If you cant move the tines by hand then I wouldn't think you sheared the pins, more like a gear box problem.

1980 pony rear tine tiller: when I put it into gear it just sits there and will suddenly lurch ahead uncontrollably.


That will happen when the tines are engaged while the wheels are in Neutral as the tines simply drive the whole machine forward without the drag of the wheels being in gear. If the wheel transmission is engaged and this is still happening, then you have need for repair.

I have a mantis tiller, the tines won't turn, the engine IS seated to the flange. any ideas on a fix?


If the motor rpms up without drag it might be a bad gear in the transfer case or a broken cable if it's a cable drive, could also be a bad or stuck clutch. Hope this helps

2 cycle Murray Ultra front tines, quit pulling, will turn if you hold the front end up, but put it down and they stop. need diagram or manual of tiller


I had the same problem. It turns out the gear box was bone dry.
Remove both the left side tines, there is a grease fitting below and
to the right of the tine shaft. Before adding grease remove the air vent screw
which is located above and a little to the left of the tine shaft.(It has a slotted head)
Pump in grease until it comes out the air vent. Replace the air vent screw and the tines.

It appeared to me that there was probably never any grease in it
as it took quite a lot to fill and when it finally came out the air vent it was
new grease, not discolored like you would expect to see when you
would be pushing some old grease out with the new.

Put it in gear and as soon as it has a load it stops tines and wheels. Has trans grease, and have tried to tighten belt by the two side adjustments but it will not move? It is an older tiller Kohler engine...


It sounds like the key that holds the pulley on the front of the tiller transfer case has sheared into. Carefully remove the belt safety cover so the belts are exposed and start the tiller. With a flashlight look at the pully on the lower shaft and shaft area. Carefully engage the tines and see it they are turning. With a second person visually, from the side, inspect the pulleys to make sure they are turning. Now carefully load the tines and see if the pullies of shaft stop turning. If the shaft stops and the pulleys keep turning then the key on the shaft has sheared off. If both keep turning then you have something that has broken or sheered in the transfer case. This type of inspection is dangerous and needs to be done at a distance with a flashlight so you can see down in the shaft area when standing off to the side while someone loads the tines. It is very difficult to try and see if the shaft is sheered in the pully as is the case without the engine running. The key has friction and it is difficult to turn the tines with the drive engaged to the engine. The only other option is to disassemble the transfer case to see what has gone bad. Please be careful testing it. Good Luck, RAC
