My tiller will start and the tines will engage. Once I start tilling in the ground the tiller shuts off. I checked fuel level, gear oil, filer and the oil.

SOURCE: leaks oil around the tines.

 an new oil seal needs to be put onto the output shaft of the transmission.  remove the plug wire if you attempt to pry out the old seal and tap in the new seal.  Be careful not to damage the case and grease the seal and shaft when you replace the oil seal

SOURCE: Tiller will not till in forward motion.

sounds like your drive belt is worn or the handle bar adjustment is too tall and your handle is not adjusted.

SOURCE: Tiller starts easily but cuts out when engaging tines - 3.75 HP

First, check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

If they are o.k., then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. If the carb. has a foat, then you can use the Den tek Brush on the jet as well. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

SOURCE: Where is the model number on my troybilt rear tine tiller?

If it's as old as mine (circa 1976), it's stamped on the casting right below the T-handle that allows the handle bars to pivot (also the gear case fill cap)

SOURCE: 1980 pony rear tine tiller:

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.

My poulan pro 17" rear tine tiller stalls wheels and tines when I start to till and starts to smoke. What could it be its brand new?


Please recheck your fuel and oil mixture. Most times too much oil will cause these problems. If you are certain that is not the problem, please check the unpacking and assembly instructions - even if you had someone else assemble the tiller for you. Once in a while things get left where they are supposed to be. If you smoking is happen due to fuel system delivery issues - you may need to adjust the carburetor portion of your tiller if it is available to do so. Most instruction manuals will have a trouble shooting section for common issues and answers on how to fix them. Cheers!!
Sincerely,

Tiller shuts off when I engage tines. I have changed the oil, cleaned the fuel tank out, checked the plug, I just need to know what adjustments, if any that I need to make.


Is the gear box full of oil? If it is dry it will bog down the engine and stall it. Will the engine run at full speed without the tines engaged? If it doesn't maybe the full throttle mixture screw needs adjusted out CCW a little.

It appears that the gear case on your model is not capable of being serviced. The cost is over 300 dollars. There is a shear pin or similar connection in the case where the shaft connects to the pulleys. It has broken off and the shaft has no torque now.

My rear tine tiller lurches out of control when I use it


Hi it sounds like you are trying too till the soil with the tiller in the fast position and probably too deep for your first pass. Really the fast position is for transporting the tiller from the field. Try putting the tiller in slow which would be the down position. Turn the throttle all the way foward, engage the tines and push your depth rod on the back down to where it is only going into the soil about four inches or even less depending on the hardnes of the soil. Even though a Troy is the best Tiller made it will try to run away with you when your trying to hog the soil all at once. Your depth setting is very important and people seem to forget the importance of adjusting it. Try these things, and remember to alway's start your tilling in the slow full throttle position. Lowering your depth a little at a time. Till you find the appropriete feed for your speed.
