There should be a handle you pull to engage the tines and drive wheels. A cable runs from the handle to the drive pulley that essentially 'puts it in gear' when the handle is pulled. Either the cable is not disengaging when you release the handle or it needs adjustment. First try spraying some liquid wrench or WD40 at each end of the cable and pull the handle a few times (take care not to get any on the drive belt). This may free it up. Otherwise check your owner''s manual for the procedure to adjust it properly. Good luck.

I have a IZIP I200 scooter I replaced the batteries and still does not woork


Although your device isn't a mobility scooter, they share many similarities. The following info should be of help to you

If when switched on you don't get lights you are not getting any power to the tiller head, the meter should be reading voltage regardless of the condition of the control circuitry. My first scooter was a very old AMIGO, it sat in a barn for 20 yrs, this was anything but a dry environment.As a matter of fact i has to a power washer to clean the two inches of Chicken manure off it. This scooter was so old that it has an discrete component open controller board as opposed to fully potted and enclosed LSI based controllers we see on todays scooters. The engager in the tiller was oxidized, and had to be cleaned and dried out. I rinse the controller out with distilled water then put it in a preheated oven at 150 F for 24 hrs. WARNING make sure of the temperature some ovens will not go this low. The newer controllers are potted and enclosed, making them water resistant, they use LSI which are proprietary and can't be purchased or repaired. I liked older controllers because you could fix them.

What you got to do is what we call "chase the voltage" First you will need a 24v circuit tester

You may also need a VOM meter only $9

The problem is 24volts is either not getting to the tiller head or you have a broken wire in the tiller head. Start at the headlight make sure its switched on. Use the circuit tester, put the clamp to ground, use the probe to find the 24volts, The hot side is the side wired in series with the switch. The tester will light up when it has voltage. Chase the wire back through the system. When you get to a cable or anywhere you can't see the wires use the VOM meter, disconnect the scooters batteries leaving the power switch on. Set the meter to read resistance scale high scale, short the probes together, zero the meter. Put one probe at the headlight the other probe at the connector you think the wire ends up at. Normally every wire is a different combination of colors like red; with a white stripe. Most of the time a wire ends up at a connector and the color code doesn't change. So if you are not getting continuity on any of the pins on the connector you know its got to go, you've isolated the open circuit too the tiler head. Here's a test you can run! Turn headlight on, power on for scooter, disconnect scooter battery, place one probe at head light. Disconnect tiller cable. Probe each pin, one of them hast to cause the meter to deflect to zero. If if doesn't the problem is in the tiller head. When working with little wires i like to use crochet needles. You can use the meter to check cables each pin in must have a pin out. If you don't get continuity between pins the cable is bad toss it.

No response at all from meter when switched on. Motor & battery known to be good by substitution.

Starter rope hard to pull on mantis tiller


Sounds like your engine may be seized up. Mine did the same thing and I had to replace the block. If any dirt gets past the air cleaner or if your fuel mixture isn't right it won't take long to lock it up. If you need info on where to find parts, let me know. Good luck.

My tiller needs belts, and I don't know how they


Assuming you have not already removed them make yourself a detailed sketch of how the belts are routed (your owner's manual should also show how how they go back on). Remove any guards or retainers (that keeps the belts from jumping off the pulleys) and put the new belts on just like the old ones. Reinstall any guards or retainers you removed. I know this may look complicated but if you take your time and figure out which belt does what it is not all that difficult. Hope this helps.

My drive belt broke and I can't get a number off of it. Do you know the number for this belt?


Hello, W/D here.
The easiest fix is to take the old belt to an auto parts store and obtain a replacement. All "V" belts are interchangeable. All that's required is the "V" size and belt length, and you'll be fine. Getting "the exact replacement" from Troy-Bilt isn't necessary, and you'll save much by going in this manner.
Best regards, --W/D--

Tiller running off, can't control it.


Slowly lower your tilling depth regulator a little at a time. Make a pass or two with it set almost as high as it will go then drop it a couple of notches and keep making more passes over the same ground. If you lower the tines to far down on hard ground it will just take off like you are describing. Just take it slow until you get your ground worked up and then it will work great.

Troy bilt jr tiller


If you try to till too deep, this is what will happen. You have to start shallow and and gradually lower the depth on subsequent passes. That will even happen on my 'Horse' model if I try to go too deep too fast.
