Introduction - 65 Series Rotary Tiller
Introduction
Farm King has a collection of rotary tiller models to suit your garden and landscaping needs.
The 65 Series Tiller attaches to the 3-point hitch as well as Cat. 1 & 2 Quick Hitch, and is designed
to fit a variety of tractors, from 30 hp to 65 hp. Tilling widths range from 46" to 77" in the 65 Series.
The tilling shaft is equipped with five to eight flanges, depending on the model. Flanges on all
series are available with four tines, and six tines per flange are standard on the 65 series. This
provides an optimum balance between performance and durability, even in heavy soils and when
breaking untilled soil.
Standard on all Farm King Rotary Tillers, the skid shoes are adjustable so it is easy to set the
perfect tilling depth. The automatic chain tightener is standard on all models. This ensures
the chain remains tight even under the toughest tilling conditions. Housed within a sealed oil bath,
the chain tightener is designed to be reliable and maintenance-free. Getting close to the fences,
hedges or covering a tire track is easy with the side shift feature. The entire unit can be pushed to
one side, while the PTO shaft remains in line with the tractor to minimize stress on the universal
joint. The side shift feature is available on all Farm King Rotary Tillers except the C6582.
Keep this manual handy for frequent reference. All new operators or owners must review the
manual before using the equipment and at least annually thereafter. Contact your Farm King
Dealer if you need assistance, information, or additional copies of the manual. Visit our website at
www.buhlerindustries.com for a complete list of dealers in your area.
The directions left, right, front and rear, as mentioned throughout this manual, are as seen facing
in the direction of travel of the implement.

Operation - 65 Series Rotary Tiller
Operation Instructions
The Farm King 65 Series Rotary Tiller is a machine that combines the primary and secondary
tillage operation into one machine. It breaks up the soil and prepares the seed bed in one pass.
Rotational power to the rotor is provided by the tractor PTO. Be familiar with the machine before
starting.
NOTE: It is the responsibility of the owner or operator to read this manual and to train all other
operators before they start working with the machine. Follow all safety instructions exactly. Safety
is everyone's business. By following recommended procedures, a safe working environment is
provided for the operator, bystanders and the area around the work site. Untrained operators are
not qualified to operate the machine.
Many features incorporated into this machine are the result of suggestions made by customers
like you. Read this manual carefully to learn how to operate the machine safely and how to set it
to provide maximum field efficiency. By following the operating instructions in conjunction with a
good maintenance program, your Tiller will provide many years of trouble free service.
Machine Components
The Farm King 65 Series Rotary Tiller consists of a rotating drum that is equipped with bent blades
for breaking up and leveling soil. The blades are turned through the soil while the machine moves
over the working area. A Drag Shield is used to maintain a level seedbed. Rotational power to the
drum is provided by the PTO on the tractor. The power is transmitted through the gearbox in the
center of the machine to the chain drive down the side. The A-frame can be moved to offset the
machine.

Operation - 65 Series Rotary Tiller
Equipment Matching
To insure the safe and reliable operation of the Tiller, it is necessary to use a tractor with the correct
specifications. Use the following list as a guide in selecting a tractor to use on the machine.
1. Horsepower: Use Table 1 as a guide in selecting the tractor horsepower appropriate for your
width of machine. Use only small Agricultural tractors on this machine.
Table 1 - Horsepower vs. Width
Model
Width
Horsepower
50H
4.2 ft (1.3 m)

60H
5 ft (1.5 m)
45
72H
6 ft (1.8 m)
55
82H
7 ft (2.1 m)
65
Alert
Do not exceed the recommended horsepower levels. The use of
horsepower will void the warranty.
2. Tractor Weight: By following the recommendations for the tractor power, the tractor will have
sufficient weight to provide stability for the unit during field operation or when transporting. It
is also recommended that each tractor be equipped with a full complement of suitcase weights
on the front of the tractor. This will provide the required weight on the front for turning and
extra traction if equipped with front wheel assist.
3. 3- Point Hitch: The Tiller is equipped with a Category 1, 3-point hitch. Be sure the tractor
3-point hitch is in the Category 1 configuration. Install the lift arm blocks or shorten the stop
chains to place the arms into the non-sway configuration. Refer to the tractor manual for
details.
4. Load Sensing Hydraulics: Many newer tractors are equipped with “Load Sensing” hydraulics.
It is the responsibility of the operator to set the tractor hydraulic system to provide “float” on
the 3-point hitch. Refer to Tractor Manual for details. The float feature will allow the machine to
follow the ground contours during operation.
5. PTO Shaft: The tractor must have a 1-3/8" 6 spline 540 rpm PTO shaft to fit the driveline shaft
supplied with the machine. Do not use shaft adapters or operate at any other speed. It is
not recommended that a tractor with variable speed PTO’s be used on the Tiller. Operating at
speeds faster than 540 rpm will overload the drivetrain and lead to early failures.
Attach the safety chains supplied with the PTO shaft, allowing sufficient slack for the driveline
during turns and operation. Check booklet attached to the PTO for instructions.
13
Operation - 65 Series Rotary Tiller
Driveline Dimension
A PTO driveline is supplied with the machine. To accommodate the variety of 3-point hitch
geometry available today, the driveline can be too long for some machines and must be cut.
It is very important that the driveline be free to telescope but not bottom out when going through
its working range. If the driveline bottoms out, the bearings on both the machine and tractor PTO
shaft will be overloaded and fail in a short time.
If cutting the drive is necessary, follow this procedure:
1. Clear the area of bystanders, especially small children.
2. Attach the Tiller to the tractor but do not attach the driveline.
3. Raise the implement until the input gearbox shaft is at the closest point to the tractor output
shaft.
4. In this position, measure the dimension between the locking groove on the tractor output shaft
and the groove on the Tiller input shaft.
5. Measure the pin to pin dimension on the compressed driveline.
6. If the driveline pin to pin dimension (B) exceeds the groove to groove dimension, the driveline
should be cut.
14
Operation - 65 Series Rotary Tiller
7. To determine how much to cut off the PTO shaft ends, calculate “X” using the following
formulas and the dimensions “A” and “B” from the previous steps. X = B – A + ½”.
Pull the driveline apart and cut off the dimension determined “X” from each end.
8. Be sure to use a hacksaw to cut from each end of the separated shaft. Cut both the plastic tube
and the metal cores.
9. Use a file to remove the burrs from the edges that were cut.
10. Assemble the two ends of the shaft.
11. Make sure that the shaft can telescope freely. If it does not, separate the two parts and inspect
for burrs or cuttings on the shaft ends. Be sure it telescopes freely before installing.
12. Make sure the plastic covering shield is free to rotate on the shaft before installing on the
machine.
Attaching/Unhooking
The Tiller should always be located on a level, dry area that is free of debris and other foreign
objects. When attaching the machine to a tractor, follow this procedure:
1. Clear the area of bystanders, especially small children.
2. Be sure the tractor 3-point hitch is in the Category 1 configuration and the lift arms are in the
non sway configuration (See tractor manual).
3. Make sure there is enough room and clearance to safely back up to the Tiller.
4. Attach the PTO driveline to the Tiller if it was removed for storage (See Assembly).
15
Operation - 65 Series Rotary Tiller
5. While backing up, align the lift arm balls with the mounting pins on the Tiller.
Alert
It may be necessary to add weight to the 3-point hitch to lower
the lift arms.
6. Stop tractor, set park brake, remove ignition key and wait for all moving parts to stop before
dismounting.
7. If your tractor is not equipped with a Quick Hitch:
-- Align the left lower link arm with the mounting pin.
-- Slide the ball over the pin and install the Linch Pin.
-- Use the screw jack on the right lift arm to align the ball with the pin.
-- Slide the ball over the mounting pin and install the Linch Pin.
-- Level the frame using the screw jack.
-- Remove retainer and pin from the mast.
-- Align top link using the turnbuckle.
-- Insert pin and install Linch Pin
-- Level frame using the turnbuckle.
8. If your tractor is equipped with a Quick Hitch:
-- Set the height of the 3-point hitch so the Quick Hitch claws are lower than the mounting
pins.
-- Be sure the 3 point hitch is set in the non-sway position (See tractor manual for details.)
-- Align the claws under the mounting pins while backing up.
-- When the claws are under the pins, slowly raise the 3 point hitch. Be sure each of the
mounting pins seat in their respective claw.
-- Release the claw retainer locks to secure the mounting pins in the claws.
9. Attach the PTO driveline:
-- Check that the driveline telescopes easily and that the shield rotates freely.
Caution
Be sure that the driveline does not bottom out when going
through its working angles.
-- Attach the driveline to the tractor by retracting the locking pin, slide the yoke over the shaft
and push on the yoke until the lock pin clicks into position. Pull on the yoke to be sure it is
locked in position.
-- Attach the anchor chain on the driveline shield to the frame.

10. Use the 3-point hitch to raise the machine.
11. Unpin the front frame stand. Raise and pin in its storage position.
12. Remove the blocks from under the Depth Gauge Shoes.
13. Reverse the above procedure when unhooking from the tractor.
Field Operation
Farm King 65 Series Rotary Tillers are designed with the inherent flexibility of operating well in
almost any kind of soil and terrain conditions. However, the operator has the responsibility of
being familiar with all operating and safety procedures and following them.
Each operator should review this section of the manual at the start of the season and as often as
required to be familiar with the machine. When using, follow this procedure:
1. Review and follow the pre-operation checklist. Review Safety Instructions.
2. Attach the tractor to the machine.
3. Before going to the field review Transporting Section, pull into the field and position the
machine in a level area.
4. Lower into working position.
5. Set the machine.
-- Level the frame: Use the screw jack on the right lift arm to level the frame from side to side.
-- Depth: Use the Depth Gauge Shoes on each side to set the operating depth. Position the
Depth Gauge Shoes in the top hole for shallow tilling and in the bottom hole for deep
tilling.
Alert
In soft soil conditions, the skid plates become less effective and
sink into the ground. Use the turnbuckle on the top link to set the
frame angle so the bottom of the Depth Gauge Shoes are level
when operating.
17
Operation - 65 Series Rotary Tiller
-- Offset: The Category Pin Brackets can be moved 3" to 4" along the Deck Assembly to either
side of center if required. Center the machine for normal operation. Offset if the tire tracks
are wider than the machine or when tilling around trees, bushes or other areas.
Alert
Sliding offset feature not available in the 82" model.
-- Drag Shield: Adjust the chain in the Adjustment Bracket to set the height of the Drag Shield.
Set the Drag Shield to just contact the tilled soil when operating.
6. Align the unit with the working area.
7. Starting Machine:
-- Run the engine at low idle
-- Slowly engage the PTO control to start the machine.
-- Slowly bring the engine to the rated PTO speed. Never exceed rated speed.
-- Lower the machine to the ground and proceed down the field.
8. Stopping Machine:
-- Slowly decrease engine speed to low idle.
-- Raise machine out of the ground.
-- Disengage PTO clutch slowly.
Caution
Place all controls in neutral, lower machine, stop engine, set park
brake, remove ignition key and wait for all moving parts to stop
before dismounting.
9. Ground Speed: Travel speed can vary between 2 and 5 mph (3 and 8 km/h) depending on the
soil and terrain conditions. It is the responsibility of the operator to note the condition of the job
being done and set the speed to obtain a quality tilling job and maintain control of the machine.
The speed can be increased to optimize tilling. Decrease speed if you want the soil worked to a
finer texture.
10. Operating Hints:
-- Determine the moisture content of the soil before starting. Soil that is too wet will “ball-up”
in the rotor blades making tilling impossible. Sandy soils normally can be worked better
than heavy clay or loam soils. It is the responsibility of the operator to determine the soil
type and moisture content before starting. It may be necessary to wait for the soil to dry
out before starting to work.
-- Set the length of the Top Link to obtain the quality of the job desired without needlessly
using power and fuel in churning the soil. Use the condition of the seedbed as your guide.
18
Operation - 65 Series Rotary Tiller
-- When tilling hard or compacted soils, it is recommended that two passes be used when
working. Use the Depth Gauge Shoes on each side of the frame to adjust the tilling
depth of the machine. The second pass should be made at an angle to the first to give a
consistent job and minimize compaction.
-- Always remove heavy crop cover, all grass and weeds, before starting to prevent rotor
plugging.
-- The rotation of the Tines propel the machine in the forward direction. Always use the
tractor transmission to control the speed of forward travel.
-- Always disengage the PTO control and raise the machine out of the ground before
depressing the master clutch on the tractor.
-- Use low gear on the tractor to start the job. Increase the speed of forward travel only as the
quality of the job and power available will allow.
-- If the slip clutch slips, reduce the ground speed or raise the machine slightly out of the
ground.
Transporting
When transporting the machine, review and follow these instructions:
1. Be sure all bystanders are clear of the machine.
2. Be sure that the machine is securely attached to the tractor and all retainer pins are installed.
3. Clean the SMV emblem, lights and reflectors and be sure they are working.
4. Be sure you are in compliance with all applicable lighting and marking regulations when
transporting. Check with your local authorities.
5. Be sure your machine can clearly be seen by overtaking and oncoming traffic.
6. Keep to the right and yield the right of way to allow faster traffic to pass. Drive on the road
shoulder if permitted by law.
7. Do not allow riders.
8. Always use hazard flashers on the tractor when transporting unless prohibited by law.
9. Use pilot vehicles front and rear when transporting during times of limited visibility.
10. Never transport the machine faster than 20 mph (32 km/h). The ratio of the tractor weight
to the Tiller weight plays an important role in defining acceptable travel speed. Table 2
summarizes the recommended travel speed to weight ratio.

1. Raise the machine until the Tines are slightly above the ground.
2. Stop engine, set park brake, remove ignition key and wait for all moving parts to stop before
dismounting.
3. Place blocks under each Depth Gauge Shoe to support the machine.
4. Raise the Drag Shield and secure in the up position.
5. Wear leather or heavy canvas gloves when handling Tines.
6. Remove mounting bolts from Tines.
Alert
An alternate method would be to disconnect the machine from
the tractor and tip it forward on its nose.
7. Install a new replacement blade and tighten the mounting bolts to their specified torque.
8. Lower the rear gate.
9. Remove the blocks under the skid plates.
Slip Clutch
During normal operation, the slip clutch can release and slip when encountering an obstruction or
when overloaded. It is designed to slip when the load exceeds 3 times its nominal rating. When the
clutch slips too frequently during normal operating conditions, it is necessary to replace the clutch
linings. NOTE: The PTO shafts are shipped with the slip clutch disengaged. There are four socket set
screws on the inside of the clutch assembly, which are turned out as far as they go to engage the
clutch. Disengage clutch by turning set screws in fully.
To replace clutch linings, follow this procedure:
1. Disengage the clutch by turning the four set screws all the way in.
2. Remove the outside bolts from the clutch assembly and replace the clutch linings.
3. When re-tightening the bolts, stop when the clutch spacer starts to touch the clutch plates. You
should be able to just move the spacer by hand when you have the correct bolt torque.
4. Engage clutch by turning out set screws after assembly is complete.

Maintenance - 65 Series Rotary Tiller
Clutch Maintenance
1. Before first use or after storage of more than one month, the clutch should be checked.
2. Disengage clutch by turning in the four socket set screws.
3. Run the PTO at low idle to slip the clutch linings. This will help remove the dirt, corrosion, and
surface gloss from the clutch plates and also ensure that the linings are loose.
4. Engage the clutch by turning out the socket set screws.
5. Normally the clutch will slip at a 20% higher torque after the “run in” than before.
6. Check the temperature of the clutch after running for 20 minutes and every 8 hours after that.
If the clutch is hot to the touch or smokes, check that the outside bolts are correctly tightened
as explained in slip clutch section. If clutch still slips, linings may have to be replaced.
Main Shaft Replacement
The main shaft is designed with a replaceable Final Drive Assembly on the driven end. This
feature keeps the cost of repairs down should replacement be required and makes main shaft
replacement easier.
When replacing the Final Drive Assembly, follow this procedure:
1. Clear the area of bystanders, especially small children.
2. Unhook from the tractor.
3. Remove the driveline and store to the side.
4. Remove the chain cover, the chain and the sprocket.
5. Use 2 people or a hoist to tip the machine forward on its nose.
6. Life the Drag Shield up and lay forward.
7. Remove the mounting bolts connect the Main Shaft to the Final Drive Assembly.
8. Wear leather or heavy canvas gloves when handling the Main Shaft and Tines.
9. Remove the Final Drive Assembly from the machine.
10. Install the replacement part.
11. Install and tighten the connecting bolts to their specified torque.
12. Install the sprocket and chain.
13. Tip the machine into the upright position.
14. Refill the chain cover with approximately 800 grams of multi-purpose grease.
15. Use gasket compound and replace the chain cover.
16. Be sure all fasteners are tightened to their specified torque.

This document limits your warranty rights.
Base Limited Warranty
Buhler Industries Inc. provides this warranty only to original retail purchasers of its product.
Buhler Industries Inc. warrants to such purchasers that all Buhler Industries Inc. manufactured
parts and components used and serviced as provided for in the Operator’s Manual shall be free
from defects in materials and workmanship for a period following delivery to the original retail
purchaser of 12 months (80 days for commercial applications). This limited warranty applies only
to those parts and components manufactured by Buhler Industries Inc. Parts and components
manufactured by others are subject to their manufacturer’s warranties, if any.
Buhler Industries Inc. will fulfill this limited warranty by, at its option, repairing or replacing
any covered part that is defective or is the result of improper workmanship, provided that the
part is returned to Buhler Industries Inc. within thirty (30) days of the date that such defect or
improper workmanship is, or should have been, discovered. Buhler Industries Inc. reserves the
right to either inspect the product at the buyer’s location or have it returned to the factory for
inspection. Parts must be returned through the selling representative and the buyer must prepay
transportation charges.
Buhler Industries Inc. will not be responsible for repairs or replacements that are necessitated,
in whole or part, by the use of parts not manufactured by or obtained from Buhler Industries Inc.
Under no circumstances are component parts warranted against normal wear and tear. There
is no warranty on product pump seals, product pump bearings, rubber product hoses, pressure
gauges, or other components that require replacement as part of normal maintenance. Also:
Buckets and Bucket Tines carry no warranty, Bent Spears carry no warranty, Snowblower Fan
Shafts carry no warranty, Mower Blades carry no warranty, Portable Auger Parts Have Two (2)
Year Warranty, Loader Parts Have Two (2) Year Warranty. The purchaser is solely responsible for
determining suitability of goods sold. This warranty is expressly in lieu of all other warranties
expressed or implied. Buhler Industries Inc. will in no event be liable for any incidental or
consequential damages whatsoever. Nor for any sum in excess of the price received for the
goods for which liability is claimed.
Repair Parts Limited Warranty
Buhler Industries Inc. warrants Farm King replacement parts purchased after the expiration of the
Buhler Industries Inc. Limited Warranty, and used and serviced as provided for in the Operator’s
Manual, to be free from defects in materials or workmanship for a period of thirty (30) days
from the invoice date for the parts. Buhler Industries Inc. will fulfill this limited warranty by, at
its option, repairing or replacing any covered part that is defective or is the result of improper
workmanship, provided that the part is returned to Buhler Industries Inc. within thirty (30) days
of the date that such defect or improper workmanship is, or should have been, discovered. Such
parts must be shipped to Buhler Industries Inc. at the purchaser’s expense.

been subject to the following: negligence; alteration or modification not approved by Buhler
Industries Inc.; misuse; improper storage; lack of reasonable and proper maintenance, service,
or repair; normal wear; damage from failure to follow operating instructions; accident; and/

Authorized Dealer and Labor Costs
Repairs eligible for labor under this limited warranty must be made by Buhler Industries Inc. or an
authorized Farm King dealer. Buhler Industries Inc. retains the exclusive discretion to determine
whether it will pay labor costs for warranty repairs or replacements, and the amount of such
costs that it will pay and the time in which the repairs will be made. If Buhler Industries Inc.
determines that it will pay labor costs for warranty work, it will do so by issuing a credit to the
dealer’s or distributor’s account. Buhler Industries Inc. will not approve or pay invoices sent for
repairs that Buhler Industries Inc. has not previously approved. Warranty service does not extend
the original term of this limited warranty.
Warranty Requirements
To be covered by warranty, each Farm King new product must be registered with Buhler
Industries Inc. within thirty (30) days of delivery to original retail purchaser. If the customer
decides to purchase replacement components before the warranty disposition of such
components is determined, Buhler Industries Inc. will bill the customer for such components and
then credit the replacement invoice for those components later determined to be covered by this
limited warranty. Any such replacement components that are determined not be covered by this
limited warranty will be subject to the terms of the invoice and shall be paid for by the purchaser.
Warranty Claims:
Warranty requests must be prepared on Buhler Industries Inc. Warranty Claim Forms with all
requested information properly completed. Warranty Claims must be submitted within a thirty
(30) day period from date of failure repair.
Warranty Labor:
Any labor subject to warranty must be authorized by Buhler Industries Inc. The labor rate for
replacing defective parts, where applicable, will be credited at 100% of the dealer’s posted shop
rate.
