It sounds like the shift shaft or something in the gearbox the shift shaft engages. I know you didn't want to hear this but it is not uncommon. Most operators don't use the clutch bail when starting, stopping, and shifting as they should.

I hate to say it but this may require a trip to your service center for repair.

We have a rototiller, craftsman, bought new at sears several years ago. Model No. 944627591, Craftsman 9 HP, 21 inch tine width, rear tine tiller with counter rotting tines. Pinion input gear is sheared...


The model ID starting in 944 indicates your tiller was manufactured by Husqvarna. This division has since been purchased by AYP. A quick online search finds that www.needlawnmowerparts.com lists having one for $55 plus shipping. I have not dealt with this company, so I can't recommend or not recommend them.
It is very common for tiller makers to not offer internal transmission parts. Transmissions are difficult at best to repair and reassemble. Used tillers are available from time to time, check your local classified ads or www.craigslist.com to find one. If you decide to go with a new tiller, i would recommend trying www.northerntools.com or www.mytsc.com to start your search.
As far as longevity on the new transmission, Sears won't guarantee any of their parts longer than 1 year. However, you should expect a replacement part to last as long as the first one did.
Sears doesn't give year models for their equipment, but usually supports replacement parts for at least 10 years. Most equipment manufacturers don't build their units to last longer than 10 years....they want you to buy another one.
I hopethis has helped.
Good luck!

Have a sears craftsman 6.0 rear tine tiller.


Hi little,

The 7.0 hp version does the same thing.

I found that it was caused by the transmission not being fully engaged to a particular setting. when it tries to engage the tines in both forward and reverse, the engine stalls immediately.

After taking to neutral and back a few dozen times I got a 'feel' for it. Has happened in over a year.

Try it. It did take patience.

Best regards
