Question about Poulan Pro PRRT900 17Inch 205cc Briggs Stratton 900 Series Gas Powered C

1 Answer

I have apoulan pro prrt850 17 inch rear tine tiller. When I took it out of storage, it started great but I could not engage the tines. The lever that moves the transmission into forward, till, or reverse is stuck. Took it to a trusted repair shop and they said problem is that water got into gear box and froze it up. They want $400 to fix, which is about as much as I paid. Any suggestions on alternatives??

If the gearbox has a fill plug, remove and let it air-dry or blow compressed air into it to help dry. Then, get some PB Blaster aerosol penetrant/lubricant from the auto parts store and spray as much as you can ito the box. Let is soak 24 hours or so and THEN come back to it and see if you can get it unfrozen.

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.

The tiller won't stay in gear for the tines to turn. It jumps into forward without turning the tines.


Check the wire to make sure that when you engage the tines it is actually engaging the lever. This seems like your are either low on the fluid for the trans or it is stuck in place and will need some good lubrication and turned by hand. You can also with the engine off, engage the tines, and try to turn it by hand. if it turns by hand then the tarns is no good.

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.

the tines are usually connected with shear bolts designed to break away when u hit something as a safety precaution so that u dont break anything in the transmission. its common that people dont know this and replace them with normal bolts. if this was done and the tines are not moving now chances are uve got a snapped gear shaft
