•
Where possible, we recommend tilling In a pattern
similar to that shown in Fig. 8. Make tile first pass,
then skip a space equal to the width of the tiller, and
make the return pass. Then till the skipped area.
Tilling in this pattern will enable you to maintain
better control° If the passes were made side-by-side,
the tractor and tiller would tend to pull toward the
tilled (soft) side.
o
Check ground moisture: If you can make a ball in
your hand out of ground to be tilled, do not till sotl if
too wet. This causes lumps which are difficult to
work up.
o
When operating for the first time, proceed slowly and
carefully until you become familiar with the proper
method of operating the tiller°
In soil that has ttlled the year before, select the
tilling depth at which the tiller engine runs
comfortably and does not stall or pull down. Lower
depth for additional passes If greater depth is desired°
Whenever working multiple passes, go perpendicular to
the previous tilling direction.
in cases where the soil is too hard to get proper
penitration or if tilling action causes Tiller to hop or
bounce, it wilt be necessary to purchase a set of Tiller
(Wheel) Weights.
FUG. 7
BREAKUNG
YOUR TILLER
Break-in your belts, pulleys and the control before you
actually begin tilling
e Start engine, tip tines off ground by pressing handles
down and engage fine control to start tine rotation.
Allow tines to rotate for' five minutes
o Check line operation and adjust if necessary. See
'_TINEOPERATION CHECK" in the Service and
Adiustments section of this manual.

TnLLING
o
o
=
The most efficient tillage is obtained when Tiller
Engine ts operated at full throttle. The sound of the
Tiller Engine will tell you. When Tiller' Engine is
lightly loaded, raise Gauge Wheels to increase tilling
depth. If Engine seems to be overloaded or stalls out,
lower Gauge Wheels for shallower' tilling..
Operate Tiller Engine at full throttle and operate
tractor in slowest forward speed, with tractor engine
at idle speed or just above idle. You will soon learn
the proper combination of tilling depth and speed for
good tillage.
Soil conditions will determine how deep Tiller can
penetrate on the first pass In extremely hard
ground, severa! passes may be necessary to till to a
depth of 6 inches. While in soft ground, Tiller may
penetrate to a depth of 6 inches in the first pass.
TILLING
CULTIVATING
Your tiller may be used for cultivating which required
a minimum of two (2) inches of soll penetration.
Set depth stake so the Tiller will penetrate soil to a
depth of 2 to 3 inches. The Tiller Engine should be
run at full throttle except when cultivating small
plants. A slower engine is necessary to prevent
burying the plants.

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS
•
The warranty on this Vehicle does no! cover items that
have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence, To
receive full value from the warranty, operator must
maintain unit as instructed in this manual_
Once a year you should replace the spark plug, clean or
replace air filter, and check tines and belts for wear,
A new spark plug and clean air filter assure proper airfuel mixture and help your engine run better and last
longer,
BEFORE EACH USE
Some adjustments will need to be made periodicalIy to
properly maintain your unit
All adjustments in the Service and Adjustments section of
this manual should be checked at least once each season,

The carburetor
has been preset
at the factory
and
adjustment
should
not be necessary°
However,
minor adjustments
may be required
to
compensate
for dirrences
in fuel, temperature,
altitude
or load.
if the carburetor
does need
adjustment, proceed as follows.
In general,
turning the
needle
valve
in
(clockwise)
decreases
the supply of fuel to the
engine
giving
a leaner
fuel/air
mixture.
Turning
the needle valve out (counterclockwise)
increases
the supply
of fuel to the engine
giving a richer fuel/air mixture.

SPARE TBNE PnNS
The Tiller Drive components are protected from damage by a (Shearable) Tine Pin located in the Tine
Assembly used to drive them and hold them in the
proper location. Should the Tine Assemblys strike or
pick up a large hidden object or become jammed, the
Tine Pin will break and the Drive Line will not be
damaged.
WARNING: SHUT OFF (DISENGAGE) THE
TINE CLUTCH LEVER, THE TILLER
ENGINE, AND THE TRACTOR ENGINE
BEFORE MAKING ANY REPAIRS.
A number of extra Tine Pins have been included with
the Tiller_ They are located in the Tiller Stake
Support Bracket. Additional Tine Pins can be obtained
from your nearest Sears Service Center/Departmento
Do not adjust or
Tine Pins are designed to be loose fit. Do not attempt
to use a Pin larger or harder than that provided as

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

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

Remove spark plug+
Pour' one ounce of oil through
spark plug
hole into cylinder+
Pull starter handle
slowly several times to
distribute oil
Replace with new spark plug+
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 probiems
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+
Drain the fuel tank+
Start the engine and let it run until the fuel
lines and carburetor are emptyo
Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products
in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur..
Use fresh fuel next season..
