Why is the belt wearing out so quick, i have used my brand new earthquake rear tine tiller less than ten hours and have gone thru three belts.

-The pulley, idler are not line up and may be too sharp edges. or may be some other part is touching the belt when is running.

Good luck

Motor runs, tines turn. won't dig deep. Can't find belt.

This is a direct gear drive system, (It doesn't have a belt) It also only has a 4 inch digging depth by specs so anything deeper than that is great.
