Question about Poulan Garden

Open Question

The tines rotate and the tiller operates when the tines are off the ground. However, the tines stop rotating when it is put down to the ground. The belt is still on the pulleys. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Tines rotate until lowered into ground.

You need to adjust the belt tensioner so that there is enough tension on the belts under contact with the earth to till the soil.

I am not sure either, but I think that it would be alot cheeper to buy a new tiller, than to use your strenght fixing a old tiller that you didn't bother to keep the instructions for (no, I am not trying to be harsh. I am trying to be nice. and I am not sure about it coming with instructions, they usually do.)

Not really sure what you're asking, but counter rotating tines turn the opposite direction you're traveling.

SOURCE: Tiller tines will not turn. Engine runs fine...

Well hopefully it's not the transmission, as sometimes these tend to go. Another common but cheaper repair are the two bearings where the tines connect to the unit.

MORE THAN LIKELY.. The bearing is located above the worm gear housing, the part connected to the tines beneath the guard. This removal can be somewhat frustrating but if you remove it and remove the engine flange you'll be able to manually spin the drive shaft and see if it's the worm gear housing/lower bearings or if it's the more likely bearing on the clutch drum or the clutch itself.

Why did my tines stopped working


Hello, Did you notice if the tines moved when you turned the belt pulley to install the new belt? If the tines do not move when you rotate the driven pulley by hand, the worm gear might be stripped. If the tines do move when you rotate the driven pulley by hand, the belt tensioner might not be working properly. It could be as simple as an adjustment.

Craftsman rear tine tiller


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

I have a Yard Machine rear tine tiller that has sat unused for 4 years. I replaced the engine and while in goes forward and backward, when I engage the tines they won't rotate and the engine bogs


Transmission/differential.
Perhaps the unit sat for 4 years because the tines would not turn and your replacement engine has not solved the real problem.
I'd say disassemble the chain case to discover what's locking the tine drive.

I have a craftsman cultivator, 2 hp model 536.292522. the engine runs, but the tines only turn untill they touch the ground, then they stop. does anyone know how the centrifugal(?) clutch works? does it...


the centrifugal clutch is steel on steel, if the tines are turning at all, the clutch is okay. unfortunately, what you are describing is a worn sector or pinion gear inside the transmission. not difficult to repair but time consuming and pretty expensive

Crt or srt tiller?


* CRT or SRT -- These are two terms you will see on rear-tine tillers only. o Counter Rotating Tines are best for heavier duty jobs and for breaking new ground. o Standard Rotating Tines are good for aerating the soil and help propel the tiller forward.
