Operating Hints
CLEAR THE WORK AREA. Long grass must be cleared and all debris removed.
LET THE MACHINE DO THE WORK. Excessive downward pressure on the handlebars may
cause the machine to jump. Apply gentle pressure and the machine will find its own digging depth
according to the type of ground.
If the ground is hard, position the depth adjuster centre knife on the top hole and make several
passes until the desired depth is achieved.
If the wheel speed or PTO lever does not engage immediately, release clutch lever slightly and ‘feel
in’ with the engine on tick-over. DO NOT FORCE THE OPERATING LEVERS.
C10 and C13 only - if one wheel begins to lose traction engage the differential lock by pulling the
black lever on top of the right hand handlebar towards you to engage drive to both wheels. The
clutch is not required to engage the differential lock.
Always pull in the clutch lever before engaging gear, digging unit or changing forward/reverse.
The clutch lever must be fully released when working. DO NOT operate the machine with the clutch
lever partially engaged as serious damage may occur.
If the ground is hard then using a lower working speed will produce the best performance. If the
soil is loose or sandy a higher working speed is best.
DO NOT WORK ON SLOPES MORE THAN 20°. If working on a slope, work across the slope
pointing the machine slightly uphill.
DO NOT ATTEMPT CULTIVATION ON:
(i) Frozen or waterlogged ground as this will destroy the soil structure resulting in poor future
drainage.
(ii) Ground that is covered with thick foliage or high grass. Remove it by cutting down.
DEPTH ADJUSTMENT
Digging depth changes are made through use of the
central knife.
For shallow digging, set the lever all the way in.
To increase digging depth, raise the control lever.
Whilst rotavating, the handlebars can be offset to avoid
walking on the cultivated soil, and adjusted in height
for the comfort and safety of the operator.

Replacing the Tines
To replace the tines, it is
necessary to remove the
rotavator attachment from
the power unit.
Once removed, turn the
rotavator upside down to
facilitate replacement of
the tines.
LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE
ORIENTATION OF THE
TINES.
Replace the tines one at a
time so that you can use
the remaining tines as a
reference.
IMPORTANT: When replacing the tines, enure that they are
mounted with the cutting edge in the same position as shown
in the picture above.

Maintenance Guide
For engine maintenance please refer to engine manufacturers manual.
After every hour of operation stop the engine and remove the spark plug cap. Check engine oil level
(recommended oil SAE 10w/40). Before checking the oil level ensure the machine is level.
Remove all foreign matter from the digging knives assembly e.g. wire, string, grass etc.
After every 100 hours of use, or once a year (whichever is sooner), check that the oil level in the
rotavator transmission is within 50mm (2”) of the hole.
To perform this operation, remove the bolts that attach the
support rod to the rotavator transmission and the depth
handle to the central knife. Raise the rotavator hood, remove
the plug and check the oil level, making sure the machine
is level. If necessary top up with SAE 80w/90 EP gear oil.
Reassemble the unit by performing the operations in reverse.
Remove the gearbox unit dipstick and ensure the oil reaches the top level mark, if necessary top up
with API GL-5 80w/90 gear oil (see pages 14-15 for more details).
Replace the spark plug cap.
Do not turn the machine on its side for cleaning.

Troubleshooting Guide
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
REMEDY
Unable to select gear
Pressure washing has removed
lubrication of gear lever detent
ball.
Grease the detent ball and
quadrant.
Unable to pull engine over
Machine has been tipped on
side for cleaning and engine
oil has filled the cylinder bore
causing a hydraulic lock.
Remove spark plug and air
filter. Stand to one side and
pull over engine to clean out oil.
Change engine oil and air filter.
Clean spark plug.
Machine suddenly leaps
forward whilst cultivating
New set of tines has been fitted
the wrong way round.
Check fitting and refit if
necessary.
Centre knife is worn out or
missing.
Check centre knife and replace
if necessary.
Centre knife lifted too high on
hard ground.
Lower centre knife.
No drive to wheels or
digging unit
Check gearbox oil level.
Top up if necessary with API
GL-5 80w/90 oil (see page 15).
Engine smokes
There may be petrol in the
engine oil due to fuel tap being
left on during transportation.
Change engine oil.
Contaminated air filter.
Replace element.
NOTES:
* Pressure washing machines removes lubricating grease as well as dirt.
It is imperative all linkages, especially the wheel speed lever detent ball and PTO swivel joint,
