Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman Rear Tine Tiller 825 Series 14" rear tine tiller. Soon after we got the tiller the shift started getting stiff. Now it has gotten to the point where I had to use a pip-e wrench to get it into gear. What do I need to do? I have the tiller taken down to the tranny but have not opened it until I know what I should look for... I have a parts breakdown but no manual.

    look at the reverse idler gear assemble, if the bearing or spacer is worn out it can cause the tranny to not go into gear because it's holding it in reverse.

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

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.

Help, new craftsman rear tine tiller stopped tilling.

It sounds like the belt just stretched. Now you need to move the belt tensioner over to put more pressure on it.
