Use fresh fuel adding oil or fuel. Use clean oil and fuel next season. See Storage section of this and store in approved, clean, covered manual for additional information. Never containers, use clean fill funnels. use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur. 10 _CAUTION: Fill to within 1/2 inch of top of fuel tank to prevent spills and to allow for fuel expansion. If gasoline is accidentally spilled, move machine away from area of spill. Avoid creating any source of ignition until gasoline vapors have disappeared. Do not overfill. Wipe off any spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline near an open flame. TO START ENGINE _CAUTION: Keep drive control bar in ISENGAGED" position when starting engine. • Make sure spark plug wire is propedy connected, and fuel shut-off valve is open. • Move shift lever indicator to UN" (neutral) position. • Place throttle control in =FAST" position. • Move choke control to full =CHOKE" position. Grasp recoil starter handle with one hand and grasp tiller handle with other hand. Pull rope out slowly until engine reaches start of compression cycle (rope will pull slightly harder at this point). • Pull recoil starter handle quickly. Do not let starter handle snap back against starter. Repeat if necessary. • If engine fires but does not start, move choke control to half choke position. Pull recoil starter handle until engine starts. • When engine starts, slowly move choke control to =RUN" position as engine warms up. NOTE: A warm engine requires less choking to start. • Move throttle control to desired running position. • Allow engine to warm up for a few minutes before engaging tines, NOTE: If at a high altitude (above 3000 feet) or in cold temperatures (below 32°F), the carburetor fuel mixture may need to be adjusted for best engine performance. See 9"O ADJUST CARBURETOR" in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual. NOTE: If engine does not start, see troubleshooting points. Choke Control Fuel Shut-Off Valve (Underneath Gas Tank) To Open: Several Turns Counterclockwise Recoil Starter Handle TILLING HINTS _aaCAUTION: Until you are accustomed to ndling your tiller, start actual field use with throttle in slow position (mid-way between =FAST" and =IDLE"). • Tilling is digging into, turning over, and breaking up packed soil before planting. Loose, unpacked soil helps root growth. Best tilling depth is 4" to 6". A tiller will also clear the soil of unwanted vegetation. The decomposition of this vegetable matter enriches the soil. Depending on the climate (rainfall and wind), it may be advisable to till the soil at the end of the growing season to further condition the soil. • Soil conditions are important for proper tilling. Tines will not readily penetrate dry, hard soil which may contribute to excessive bounce and difficult handling of your tiller. Hard soil should be moistened before tilling; however, extremely wet soil will =ball-up" or clump during tilling. Wait until the soil is less wet in order to achieve the best results. When tilling in the fall, remove vines and long grass to prevent them from ,wrapping around the tine shaft and slowing your tilling operation. • You will find tilling much easier if you leave a row untilled between passes. Then go back between tilled rows.There are two reasons for doing this. First, wide turns are much easier to negotiate than about-faces. Second, the tiller won't be pulling itself, and you, toward the row next to it. 11 • Do not lean on handle. This takes weight off the wheels and reduces traction. To get through a really tough section of sod or hard ground, apply upward pressure on handle or lower the depth stake. TINE SHEAR PINS The tine assemblies on your tiller are secured to the tine shaft with shear pins (See %INE REPLACEMENT in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). If the tiller is unusually overloaded or jammed, the shear pins are designed to break before internal damage occurs to the transmission. • If shear pin(s) break, replace only with those shown in the Repair Parts section of this manual. ADJUST WHEELS FOR CULTIVATING CULTIVATING Cultivating is destroying the weeds between rows to prevent them from robbing nourishment and moisture from the plants. At the same time, breaking up the upper layer of soil crust will help retain moisture in the soil. Best digging depth is 1" to 3" (2.5-7.5 cm). Lower the outer side shields to protect small plants from being buried. • Cultivate up and down the rows at a speed which will allow tines to uproot weeds and leave the ground in rough condition, promoting no further growth of weeds and grass. I • Place blocks under right hand side of tiller and remove hairpin clip and clevis pin from right hand wheel. • Move wheel outward approximately 1 inch until hole in inner wheel hub lines up with inner hole in axle. • Replace clevis pin and hairpin clip on inside of wheel and remove blocks. • Repeat preceding steps on left hand side. NOTE: In and while be moved increased extremely rough conditions cultivating, the wheels should outward on the axle for stability.

See •CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL" in the Operation section of this manual. Oil drain ENGINE LUBRICATION Use only high quality detergent oil rated with API service classification SF, SG or SH. Select the oil's SAE viscosity grade according to your expected temperature. SAE VISCOSITY TEMPERATURE GRADES RANGE ANTICIPATED BEFORE NEXT OIL CHANGE NOTE: Although multi-viscosity oils (5W30, 10W-30, etc.) improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption when used above 32°F (0°C). Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible engine damage from running low on oil Change the oil after every 50 hours of operation or at least once a year if the tiller is not used for 50 hours in one year. Check the crankcase oil level before starting the engine and after each five (5) hours of continuous use. Add SAE 30 motor oil or equivalent. Tighten oil filler plug securely each time you check the oil level. TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL Determine temperature range expected before oil change. All oil must meet API service classification SF, SG or SH. • Be sure tiller is on level surface. • Oil will drain more freely when warm. • Use a funnel to prevent oil spill on tiller, and catch oil in a suitable container. • Remove oil drain plug. Be careful not to allow dirt to enter the engine. For easier removal of plug use 7/16 12 Pt. socket with extension. • Tip tiller forward to drain oil. • After oil has drained completely, replace oil drain plug and tighten securely. Level Oil Fill Plug AIR FILTER Your engine will not run properly using a dirty air filter. Clean the foam pre-cleaner after every 25 hours of operation or every season. Service paper cartridge every 100 hours of operation or every season, whichever occurs first. Service air cleaner more often under dusty conditions. • Loosen air cleaner cover screws. Remove cover and air cleaner assembly from base. • Remove air cleaner assembly from inside cover and disassemble.

Cable Clip Screv Control Cable Idler Pulley _ Transmission Pulley 16 Extension Sprin! TINE REPLACEMENT g_oCAUTION: Tines are sharp. Wear vas or other protection when handling tines. A badly worn fine causes your tiller to work harder and dig more shallow. Most important, wom tines cannot chop and shred organic matter as effectively nor bury it as deeply as good tines. A tine this worn needs to be replaced. • To maintain the superb tilling performance of this machine the tines should be checked for sharpness, wear, and bending, particularly the tines which are next to the transmission. If the gap between the tines exceeds 3-1/2 inches they should be replaced or straightened as necessary. • New tines should be assembled. Sharpened tine edges will rotate rearward from above. \ New "line Wom "rine MAX Counter "Rne Rotation Hairpin Clip Sharp Edge / Edge Clevis Pin ,Sharp Edges 17 Clevis Pin ENGINE TO ADJUST CARBURETOR Maintenance, repair, or replacement of the emission control devices and systems, which are being done at the customers expense, may be performed by any non-read engine repair establishment or individual. Warranty repairs must be performed by an authorized engine manufacturer's service outlet. The carburetor has a high speed jet and has been preset at the factory and adjustment should not be necessary. However, minor adjustments may be required to compensate for differences in fuel, temperature, altitude or load. If the carburetor does need adjustment, proceed as follows. IDLE RPM ADJUSTMENT • To adjust idle RPM, rotate throttle linkage counterclockwise and hold against stop while adjusting idle speed adjusting screw to obtain 1750 RPM. Release throttle linkage. ACCELERATION TEST • Move throttle control lever from =SLOW" to =FAST" position. If engine hesitates or dies, turn needle valve out (counterclockwise) 1/8 tum. Repeat test and continue to adjust, if necessary, until engine accelerates smoothly. High speed stop is factory adjusted. Do not adjust - damage may result. IMPORTANT: Never tamper with the engine govemor, which is factory set for proper engine speed. Overspeeding the engine above the factory high speed setting can be dangerous. If you think the engine-governed high speed needs adjusting, contact your nearest AUTHORIZED service center/department, which has proper equipment and experience to make any necessary adjustments. TO ADJUST THROTTLE CONTROL CABLE • Loosen cable clamp screw to allow cable to move. • Move throttle control lever on upper handle to =FAST" position. • Pull throttle cable out to end of travel • Hold cable in this position and tighten clamp screw securely. Screw Throttle Cable Throttle _-_ Linkag_ Val_/eldle Needle Idle Speed II _ Adjusting \\ Screw 18 "_ Immediately prepare your tiller for storage at the end of the season or if the unit will not be used for 30 days or more. _CAUTION: Never store the tiller with gasoline in the tank inside a building where fumes may reach an open flame or spark. Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure. TILLER • Clean entire tiller (See =CLEANING" in the Maintenance se_ion of this manual). • Inspect and replace belts, if necessary (See belt replacement instructions in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). • Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance section of this manual. • Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws are securely fastened. Inspect moving parts for damage, breakage and wear. Replace if necessary. • Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting. ENGINE FUEL SYSTEM IMPORTANT: It is important to prevent gum deposits from forming in essential fuel system parts such as the carburetor, fuel filter, fuel hose, or tank during storage, also, experience indicates that alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation and formation of acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. • Drain the fuel tank. • Start the engine and let it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty. • Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur. • Use fresh fuel next season. NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable alternative in minimizing the formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage container. Always follow the mix ratio found on stabilizer container. Run engine at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer to allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor. Do not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer. ENGINEOIL Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace with clean oil. (See =ENGINE" in the Maintenance section of this manual). CYLINDER(S) • Remove spark plug. • Pour 1 ounce (29 ml) of oil through spark plug hole into cylinder. • Pull starter handle slowly several times to distribute oil. • Replace with new spark plug. OTHER • Do not store gasoline from one season to another. • Replace your gasoline can if your can starts to rust. Rust and/or dirt in your gasoline will cause problems. • If possible, store your unit indoors and cover it to give protection from dust and dirt. • Cover your unit with a suitable protective cover that does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic cannot breathe which allows condensation to form and will cause your unit to rust. IMPORTANT: Never cover tiller while engine and exhaust areas are still warm. 19 PROBLEM Will not start CAUSE CORRECTION 1. Out of fuel. 2. Engine not "CHOKED" properly. 3.Engine flooded. 4.
