Warning
Engines give off carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, poison gas. Carbon monoxide
may be present even if you do not smell or see
any engine exhaust. Breathing carbon monoxide can cause nausea, fainting or death, in
addition to drowsiness, dizziness and confusion.
If you experience any of these symptoms, seek
fresh air and medical attention immediately.
Engine Safety Precautions
CAUTION
Warning Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Hot gases are a normal by-product of a functioning catalytic converter. Follow all safety instructions to prevent burns and fires.
Engines give off carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless,
poison gas. Carbon monoxide may be present even if you
do not smell or see any engine exhaust. Breathing carbon
monoxide can cause nausea, fainting or death, in addition
to drowsiness, dizziness and confusion. If you experience
any of these symptoms, seek fresh air and medical attention
immediately.
Do Not Alter/Modify engine:
Never alter or modify the engine from the
factory. Serious injury or death may occur if
engine is modified or altered.
When working on or replacing parts for the
engine or product, you must always disconnect spark plug wire from the spark plug and
keep it away from the spark plug.
If your product comes with a separate engine manual, be
sure to read and follow all safety and warning precautions
outlined there, in addition to any in this manual.
Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
• Always start and run engine outdoors. Do not start or run
engine in an enclosed area, even if doors or windows are
open.
• Never try to ventilate engine exhaust indoors. Carbon
monoxide can reach dangerous levels very quickly.
Gasoline Fires and Handling Fuel Safely
Use extra care in handling gasoline and other fuels. They are
flammable and vapors are explosive.
•
• Never run engine outdoors where exhaust fumes may be
pulled into a building.
When storing extra fuel be sure that it is in an appropriate
container and away from any fire hazards.
•
• Never run engine outdoors in a poorly ventilated area where
the exhaust fumes may be trapped and not easily taken
away. (Examples include: in a large hole or areas where hills
surround your working area.)
Prevent fire and explosion caused by static electric discharge.
Use only nonmetal, portable fuel containers approved by the
Underwriter’s Laboratory (U.L.) or the American Society for
Testing & Materials (ASTM).
•
• Never point the exhaust muffler towards anyone. People
should always be many feet away from the operation of the
engine and its attachments.
Always fill fuel tank outside in a well ventilated area. Never
fill your fuel tank with fuel indoors. (Examples include:
basement, garage, barn, shed, house, porch, etc.) Never
fill tank near appliances with pilot lights, heaters, or other
ignition sources. If the fuel has to be drained, this should be
done outdoors with the proper equipment. The drained fuel
should be stored in a container specifically designed for fuel
storage or it should be disposed of carefully.
•
Never remove the fuel cap or add fuel with the engine
running. Stop engine and allow to cool before filling.
•
•
Never drain fuel from engine in an enclosed area.
• Never run engine in an enclosed or partially enclosed area.
(Examples include: buildings that are enclosed on one or
more sides, under tents, car ports or basements.)
• Always run the engine with the exhaust and muffler pointed
in the direction away from the operator.
Do not change the engine governor settings or over-speed
the engine.

•
Always wipe up excess (spilled) fuel from engine before
starting. Clean up spilled fuel immediately. If fuel is spilled,
do not start the engine but move product and fuel container
from area. Clean up spilled fuel and allow to evaporate and
dry after wiping and before starting.
•
Allow fuel fumes/vapors to escape from the area before
starting engine.
•
Test the fuel cap for proper installation before starting and
using engine.
•
Always run the engine with fuel cap properly installed on
the engine.
•

children to fill the engine.
•
Never allow an adult or anyone under the influence of drugs
or alcohol to fill engine.
•
When storing gasoline or equipment with fuel in the tank,
store away from furnaces, stoves, water heaters or other
appliances that have a pilot light or other ignition source
because they can ignite gasoline vapors.
Burns and Fires
The muffler, muffler guard and other parts of the engine become extremely hot during the operation of the engine. These
parts remain extremely hot after the engine has stopped.
Prevention of Burns and Fires
• Never remove the muffler guard from the engine.
• Never touch the muffler guard because it is extremely hot
and will cause severe burns.
• Never touch parts of the engine that become hot after
operation.
• Always keep materials and debris away from muffler guard
and other hot parts of the engine to avoid fires.
• This engine is designed to operate using a catalytic converter
which contributes to the engine’s compliance with the EPA.
Children and bystanders
Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert to the
presence of children and/or bystanders. Never assume that
others will remain where you last saw them.
• Keep the area of operation clear of all persons, especially
small children and pets. Keep children under the watchful
care of a responsible adult.
• Be alert and turn machine off if children enter the area.
• Before and while moving backwards, look behind and down
for small children.
•
Never allow children to operate the machine.
• Use extra care when approaching blind corners, shrubs, trees,
or other objects that may obscure vision.
SERVICE
• Always stop the engine whenever you leave the equipment,
before cleaning, repairing or inspecting the unit. Engine should
be turned off and cool, spark plug wire must be removed from
spark plug before any repairs or adjustments are attempted.
Never make adjustments or repairs with the engine (motor)
running. Disconnect the spark plug wire, and keep the wire
away from the plug to prevent accidental starting. Remove
the ignition key if equipped with an electric start.
• Always wear eye protection when you make adjustments or
repairs.
• Keep all nuts and bolts tight and keep equipment in good
condition.
• Never tamper with safety devices. Check their proper
operation regularly.
• When servicing or repairing the machine, do not tip the machine
over or up unless specifically instructed to do so in this manual.
Service and repair procedures can be done with the machine
in an upright position. Some procedures will be easier if the
machine is lifted on a raised platform or working surface.
• To reduce fire hazard, keep machine free of grass, leaves,
or other debris build-up. Clean up oil or fuel spillage. Allow
machine to cool before storing.
• Stop and inspect the equipment if you strike an object.
Repair, if necessary, before restarting.
•
Clean and replace safety and instruction decals as necessary.
• To guard against engine over-heating, always have engine
debris filter mounted and clean.
• Inspect machine before storage. When not in use, disconnect
spark plug lead and store indoors in a dry place locked or
otherwise inaccessible to children.
• Use only original equipment parts, including all nuts and
bolts.

A more detailed description of engine operation and all related
precautions and procedures can be found in the engine
manufacturer’s manual that accompanies each tiller.
Cold Starts
1. Turn the On/Off switch to the ON position
2. Move choke lever to full choke position.
3. Move throttle lever to half way between the SLOW position
and the FAST position.
Caution
Please do not start your tiller until you
have read the Manual that came with your
engine, and the sections in this manual titled
Controls and Safety. If you have read these,
follow the steps in the start-up section to
start your tiller. Always perform this prestart checklist before starting the engine.
Important
Engine is shipped from factory without oil. YOU
MUST ADD ENGINE OIL BEFORE STARTING ENGINE.
Practice operating the controls and tiller
with tines out of ground before beginning to
till. It is important that you know how to use
the tiller properly, keep control at all times,
stop the tines and wheels from turning, and
stop the engine if necessary. If you do not know
how to do these things, read the Controls and
Safety sections before proceeding.
4. Pull starting rope out slowly one time and allow to return
normally.
Restarting A Warm Engine
5. Pull starting rope out rapidly, and allow rope to return
normally. Repeat until engine starts.
Restarting an engine that is already warm from previous running
does not normally require use of the choke.
6. When engine starts, gradually move choke lever to run
position and increase throttle speed to the FAST position for
tilling.
1. Turn the On/Off switch to the ON position.
2. Move throttle lever to half way between SLOW and FAST.
3. Pull starting rope out rapidly until engine starts. Allow rope
to return normally. Repeat until engine starts.
4. Adjust throttle speed to the FAST position for tilling.

Operating Speed
For normal tilling, set the throttle lever to FAST.
SHUTTING DOWN
To stop the engine at any time, turn the On/Off switch to the
OFF position. To stop tines at any time, release the drive safety
control lever to the neutral position.
Tilling
1. Adjust the depth regulator lever to desired tilling depth.
NOTE: Raise depth regulator lever up one hole at a time, testing
tiller operation after each raise. Raising depth regulator lever too
high can result in loss of control of tiller!
2.Move the throttle control to FAST.
3.Place the tiller in motion by pushing down on the drive safety control
lever--this will engage the tines.
MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE
Your rototiller has been designed and produced by the industry’s
leading manufacturer of outdoor power equipment to provide
you with years of reliable operation.
Please read the maintenance schedule in this manual for the tiller,
and the maintenance schedule and recommendations in the
accompanying engine manual. Observe these recommendations
to extend the life of your product.
Good maintenance is essential for safe, economical, and troublefree operation. Keeping your tiller in top running condition will
prolong its life, and help you obtain optimum performance. It will
also help reduce air pollution. To help you properly care for your
engine, the following pages include a maintenance schedule,
routine inspection procedures, and simple maintenance
procedures using basic hand tools. Other service tasks that
are more difficult, or require special tools, are best handled by
professionals and are normally performed by a technician or
other qualified mechanic.
Maintenance, replacement or repair of the emissions control
devices and systems may be performed by any non-road
engine repair establishment or individuals. However, items
must be serviced by an authorized dealer to obtain “no
charge” emissions control warranty service.
The maintenance schedule applies to normal operating
conditions. If you operate your tiller under unusual conditions,
such as sustained high-load or high-temperature operation, or
use in unusually wet or dusty conditions, consult your servicing
dealer for recommendations applicable to your individual needs
and use.
Danger
E ngine a nd surrounding pa rts beco m e
extremely hot during normal use and will
cause serious burn injuries if touched before
the engine has cooled.
Allow engine to cool completely before
touching these hot surfaces.
Always keep hands and feet clear of rotating
machine parts.
Warning
Extreme caution must be taken in selecting
tilling depth. If you attempt to till with the
drag stake in too high of a position for certain
soil conditions, loss of control could result.
If removing material from the tines by hand,
stop engine and remove spark plug wire first.
