A badly worn Tine causes your Tiller to work harder and dig
shallower.. Most important, worn Tines cannot chop and shred
organic matter as effectively nor' bury it as deeply as good
Tines.. A tine this worn (Fig. 20) needs to be replaced,
FIGURE 20

To maintain
the superb tilling
performance
of this machir, e
the Tines should be checked for sharpness, wear and bending
particularly
the Tines which are next to the Tine Transmission
(Fig, 21), If the gap between
the Tines exceeds 3- 1/2", they
should be repiaced or-straightened
