Question about Garden

1 Answer

My husband has a new Husqvarna DRT900E tiller. Each time he puts it in the garden, the hairpin clip breaks on the left drive wheel. Have talked w/dealer. No help. Bought more clips are Lowes and they are breaking everytime he tries to use it.

Manual for the Husqvarna DRT900E tiller can be found here:

The part that seems to be causing the problem is Part Number 532 12 47-88 Hairpin Clip.

It is odd that the clip is breaking and even odder that the clip only breaks on the one side; manual shows same hairpin clip also on the right side. You may have received a flawed pin the first time which one would have thought Husqvarna would have readilly replaced.

The replacement hairpins from Lowe's may not be correct specifications and are likely only made of spring wire. Suggest you take the pin from the right side to a tool or machine parts supply shop and find a hairpin clip made from 300 series stainless steel which will be stronger.

Husqvarna shear pins break within minutes

if we are speaking about the shear pins on the tines, the ground is the problem and you need to begin your first pass on a more shallow setting and progress to a deeper setting gradually. if we are speaking about the shear pins on the tires w/o engaging the tines then these should not be breaking and I recommend that the tiller be examined by an authorized dealer.

1980 pony rear tine tiller: when I put it into gear it just sits there and will suddenly lurch ahead uncontrollably.

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.

I have a 19" 7 horsepower dual rear tine tiller and can not find out what size belt it takes. It is a craftsman bought at Sears. I lost my manual for it.

If you're talking about the dual-rotation rear tine 900 series, produced by AYP, sold by Sears as Craftsman, also sold by Husqvarna, the actual belt size is 51-3/8". A 51 should work.

How do I remove the wheels on a 1985 Troy Built Horse Rototiller?

Horse wheels are held on with a single roll pin. Pound out the roll pin and pray.....that the rims aren't rusted to the shaft. If the rims are rusted to the shaft, you have two choices. You can either put the new tires or tubes on the rim with the rim on the shaft...or you can work at getting the rims off the shaft. If you put tubes in, be sure the rim is free of sharp edges.....or you'll be sorry.

To get the rims off if they're rusted on, I've used a variety of techniques over the years. The most effective is to weld a nut on the spot where you removed the end caps. Use a nut that's the same thread as your bearing puller. Then use the bolt from your bearing puller to put pressure on the end of the shaft, pulling the rim off. A torch helps, but be careful or you'll be putting new seals in too.

Fuwl filter change on windstar 2001 sel

All it takes are some rags, a bucket, a new fuel filter and a small screwdriver (blade) and new hairpin clips. Pull the ECM fuel pump fuse and crank the engine to relieve the fuel pressure. Raise the left side of the van on jackstands. The filter is underneath the driver's seat under the van. With your safety goggles on, and a class b fire extinguisher on hand, pull the plastic hairpin clips, either with the Ford tool, or a screwdriver and then pull the fuel lines from the filter and loosen the clamp. Install the new fuel filter the opposite, but use new retaining (hairpin) clips and insert them gently, after you make sure the lines are seated. (If it don't fit, don't force it. You will break something). Tighten the clamp lower the van and turn the key to on to make sure there are no leaks.
