Tiller has been sitting up for some time and now won't engage into forward or reverse.


Hello. make sure all of your clevis pins are in place. And on mine even if i get it in gear...make sure that the "dead man" is cable connected for sure. Make sure when you squeeze the "safety stop" or "Run/engage" lever that it is actually moving a lever at the other end. If so? Then trans box is next to inspect. But that would have had to suffer a hard jam to damage that. And again with other people I've seen this a hundred times with rear tine tillers. Sometimes it just "cogs out" into a state of "bad mesh" with the gears and all that is needed is to push or pull the tiller a bit while you try to engage the shifter. The wheels just have to be rolled a tiny but and you'll free up the meshed gears. Happy tilling. Four thumbs up will truly be appreciated. Thanks. Joe

Mtd rear tine garden tiller . The wheeles will engage and turn forward and reverse but the tines will not engage. At first they would but would pop out of gear. Now they w9ont engage at all.


Could be the shifter inside the gearbox or it could be a stripped gear or broken chain. The bad news is you will have to remove the gearbox from the engine and then open the gearbox to see what is going on. This is quite time consuming but taking to a shop for this is very expensive due to the labor involved. You can do it yourself if you pay attention to how you take it apart. I hope this helps you out.

My Yardsman Snowthrower will not move when it is put in gear.


My old machine just did the same thing. When I lift the unit off the wheels with the gear engaged the wheels move. when I put it down the machine doesn't move. This happened while I was using the machine. BTW the machine is 20 years old.

Shifter handle is lock in reverse. will not move to forward. or engage tines in eitherer directions.it stays reverse travel. shifted fine then went to move it then i couldn't move it. but in reverse


Hi,
The gears are crossed up in the transmission.
You may get lucky if you try with the engine OFF,turning the trans pulley in the direction opposite of which the motor turns. This might unlock the internal gears.
Sorry for your problem. I know it is time to get the ground ready.

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.
