• Never allow children to operate the equipment. Never allow adults to op er ate the equipment without proper instruction.

• Keep the area of operation clear of all persons, par-

tic u lar ly small children, and pets.

PREPARATION

• Thoroughly inspect the area where the equipment is to be used and remove all foreign objects.

• Disengage all clutches and shift into neutral before starting the engine (mo tor).

• Do not operate the equipment with out wearing ad e quate outer gar ments. Wear footwear that will im prove footing on slippery surfaces.

• Handle fuel with care; it is highly fl ammable.

• Use an approved fuel container.

• Never add fuel to a running engine or hot engine.

• Fill fuel tank outdoors with extreme care. Never fi ll fuel tank indoors.

• Replace gasoline cap securely and clean up spilled fuel before restarting.

• Use extension cords and receptacles as specifi ed by the manufacturer for all units with electric drive motors or electric starting motors.

• Never attempt to make any adjustments while the engine (motor) is running (except where specifi cally rec om mend ed by manufacturer).

OPERATION

• Do not put hands or feet near or under rotating parts.

• Exercise extreme caution when op er at ing on or cross-

ing gravel drives, walks, or roads. Stay alert for hidden hazards or traffi c. Do not carry pas sen gers.

• After striking a foreign object, stop the engine (motor), remove the wire from the spark plug, thoroughly in spect the tiller for any damage, and repair the damage before restarting and op er at ing the tiller.

• Exercise caution to avoid slipping or falling.

• If the unit should start to vibrate ab nor mal ly, stop the engine (motor) and check immediately for the cause.

TILLING

The speed and depth of tilling is regulated by the position of the depth stake and wheel height.

The depth stake should always be below the wheels for digging. It serves as a brake to slow the tiller’s forward motion to enable the tines to penetrate the ground. Also, the more the depth stake is lowered into the ground the deeper the tines will dig.

FIG. 7

ADD GASOLINE

• Fill fuel tank to bottom of fi ller neck. Do not overfi ll.

Use fresh, clean, regular un lead ed gasoline with a minimum of 87 octane. (Use of leaded gasoline will increase carbon and lead oxide deposits and reduce valve life). Do not mix oil with gasoline. Purchase fuel in quan ti ties that can be used within 30 days to assure fuel freshness.

CAUTION: Fill to within 1/2 inch of top of fuel tank to prevent spills and to allow for fuel expansion. If gasoline is ac-

ci den tal ly spilled, move machine away from area of spill. Avoid creating any source of ignition until gasoline vapors have disappeared.

Wipe off any spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline near an open fl ame.

IMPORTANT:

WHEN OPERATING IN TEMPERATURES

BELOW32°F(0°C), USE FRESH, CLEAN WINTER GRADE

GAS O LINE TO HELP INSURE GOOD COLD WEATHER

START ING.

CAUTION: Alcohol blended fuels (called gas o hol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to sep a ra tion and for ma tion of acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. To avoid engine problems, the fuel system should be emptied before stor age of

30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank, start the engine and let it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use fresh fuel next sea son. See Storage In struc tions for additional information. Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur.

TO START ENGINE (See Fig. 8)

CAUTION: Keep drive control bar in

“DISENGAGED” position when start-

ing en gine.

When starting engine for the fi rst time or if engine has run out of fuel, it will take extra pulls of the recoil starter to move fuel from the tank to the engine.

• Make sure spark plug wire is prop er ly connected.

• Move shift lever indicator to “N” (neutral) position.

• Place throttle control in “FAST” position.

• Move choke control to full “CHOKE” position. Grasp recoil starter handle with one hand and grasp tiller handle with other hand. Pull rope out slowly until engine reaches start of com pres sion cycle (rope will pull slightly harder at this point).

• Pull recoil starter handle quickly. Do not let starter handle snap back against starter. Repeat if necessary.

• If engine fi res but does not start, move choke control to half choke position. Pull recoil starter handle until engine starts.

• When engine starts, slowly move choke control to

“RUN” position as engine warms up.

NOTE:

A warm engine requires less choking to start.

• Move throttle control to desired running position.

• Allow engine to warm up for a few minutes before engaging tines.

NOTE:

If at a high altitude (above 3000 feet) or in cold temperatures (below 32°F), the carburetor fuel mix ture may need to be adjusted for best engine per for mance. See “TO

ADJUST CARBURETOR” in the Service and Ad just ments section of this manual.

CON TROL

• You will fi nd tilling much easier if you leave a row untilled between passes. Then go back between tilled rows. (See Fig. 9) There are two reasons for doing this. First, wide turns are much easier to negotiate than about-faces. Sec ond, the tiller won’t be pulling itself, and you, toward the row next to it.

• Set depth stake and wheel height for shallow tilling when working extremely hard soil or sod. Then work across the fi rst cuts at normal depth.

BREAKING IN YOUR TILLER

Break-in your belts, pulleys and tine control before you actually begin tilling.

• Start engine, tip tines off ground by pressing handles down and engage tine control to start tine rotation.

Allow tines to rotate for fi ve minutes.

• Check tine operation and adjust if necessary. See “TINE

OPERATION CHECK” in the Service and Ad just ments sec tion of this manual.

TILLING HINTS

CAUTION: Until you are accustomed to handling your tiller, start ac tu al fi eld use with throttle in slow po si tion (mid-way be tween “FAST” and “IDLE”).

To help tiller move forward, lift up the handles slightly (thus lifting depth stake out of ground). To slow down the tiller, press down on handles.

If you are straining or tiller is shaking, the wheels and depth stake are not set properly in the soil being tilled. The proper setting of the wheels and depth stake is through trial and error and depends upon the soil con di tion. (The harder or wetter the ground, the slower the engine and tine speed needed. Under these poor con di tions, at fast speed the tiller will run and jump over the ground).

A properly adjusted tiller will dig with little effort from the operator.

• Tilling is digging into, turning over, and breaking up packed soil before planting. Loose, unpacked soil helps root growth. Best tilling depth is 4" to 6" (10-15 cm).

A tiller will also clear the soil of unwanted vege ta tion.

The decomposition of this vegetable mat ter en rich es the soil. Depending on the climate (rain fall and wind), it may be advisable to till the soil at the end of the growing season to further condition the soil.

• Soil conditions are important for proper tilling. Tines will not readily penetrate dry, hard soil which may con trib ute to excessive bounce and diffi cult handling of your tiller.

Hard soil should be mois tened before tilling; however, extremely wet soil will “ball-up” or clump during tilling.

Wait until the soil is less wet in order to achieve the best results. When tilling in the fall, remove vines and long grass to prevent them from wrapping around the tine shaft and slowing your tilling operation.

9

FIG. 9

CULTIVATING

Cultivating is destroying the weeds between rows to pre vent them from robbing nourishment and moisture from the plants. At the same time, breaking up the upper layer of soil crust will help retain moisture in the soil.

Best digging depth is 1" to 3" (2.5-7.5 cm).

• You will probably not need to use the depth stake.

Begin by tipping the depth stake forward until it is held by the stake spring.

• Cultivate up and down the rows at a speed which will allow tines to uproot weeds and leave the ground in rough con di tion, promoting no fur ther growth of weeds and grass (See Fig. 10).

NOTE:

Although multi-viscosity oils (5W-30, 10W-30, etc.) improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption when used above

32°F (0°C). Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible engine damage from running low on oil.

Change the oil after every 25 hours of operation or at least once a year if the tractor is not used for 25 hours in one year.

Check the crankcase oil level before starting the engine and after each fi ve (5) hours of continuous use. Add SAE

30 motor oil or equivalent. Tighten oil fi ller plug securely each time you check the oil level.

TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL (See Figs. 11 and 12)

SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENTS

NOTE:

Additional tine arrangements can be attained by moving outer tines to opposite side of tiller which will point tines outward. Always keep sharp edges of tines rotating forward from above.

TINE OPERATION CHECK (See Fig. 21)

Be sure tines do not rotate when engine is running and tine control is in the “OFF” position.

WARNING: Disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug to prevent starting while checking tine operation.

FINAL CHECK “OFF” POSITION

• With tine control “OFF” (up), push down on handle to raise tines off the ground.

• Slowly pull recoil starter handle while observing tines.

Tines should not rotate.

• If tines rotate, place loop of idler spring in a lower link of chain and retest.

FINAL CHECK “ON” POSITION

• With tine control “ON” (held down to handle) push down on handle to raise tines off the ground.

• Slowly pull recoil starter handle while observing tines.

Tines should rotate forward.

• If tines do not rotate, place loop of idler spring in a higher link of chain and retest.

NOTE:

TO ADJUST CARBURETOR

The carburetor has a high speed fi xed jet and has been preset at the factory and ad just ment should not be nec-

es sary. How ev er, minor ad just ments may be required to compensate for dif fer ences in fuel, temperature, altitude or load. If the carburetor does need adjustment, see engine manual.

IMPORTANT:

NEVER TAMPER WITH THE EN

GOVERNOR, WHICH IS FACTORY SET FOR PROPER ENGINE

SPEED. OVER SPEED ING THE ENGINE ABOVE THE FACTORY

HIGH SPEED SET TING CAN BE DANGEROUS. IF YOU THINK

THE ENGINE-GOVERNED HIGH SPEED NEEDS ADJUSTING,

CON TACT YOUR NEAREST AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER/

DEPARTMENT, WHICH HAS THE PROPER EQUIP MENT AND

EX PE RI ENCE TO MAKE ANY NEC ES SARY ADJUSTMENTS.

STORAGE

Immediately prepare your tiller for storage at the end of the season or if the unit will not be used for 30 days or more.

WARNING: Never store the tiller with gasoline in the tank inside a build ing where fumes may reach an open fl ame or spark. Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure.

ENGINE OIL

Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace with clean oil. (See

“ENGINE” in the Maintenance section of this man ual).

CYLINDER(S)

• Remove spark plug.

• Pour 1 ounce (29 ml) of oil through spark plug hole into cylinder.

• Pull starter handle slowly several times to distribute oil.

• Replace with new spark plug.

TILLER

• Clean entire tiller (See “CLEANING” in the Maintenance section of this manual).

• Inspect and replace belts, if nec es sary (See belt re-

place ment in struc tions in the Service and Ad just ments section of this manual).

• Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance section of this manual.

• Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws are securely fastened. Inspect moving parts for damage, break age and wear. Replace if necessary.

• Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting.

ENGINE

OTHER

• 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 problems.

• If possible, store your unit indoors and cover it to give protection from dust and dirt.

• Cover your unit with a suitable pro tec tive cover that does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic cannot breathe which allows con den sa tion to form and will cause your unit to rust.

IMPORTANT:

NEVER COVER TILLER WHILE ENGINE AND

EXHAUST AREAS ARE STILL WARM.

FUEL SYSTEM

IMPORTANT:

IT IS IMPORTANT TO PREVENT GUM DEPOSITS

FROM FORMING IN ESSENTIAL FUEL 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

ETHANOL OR METHANOL) CAN ATTRACT MOISTURE WHICH

LEADS TO SEPARATION AND FORMATION OF ACIDS DURING

STORAGE. ACIDIC GAS CAN DAMAGE THE FUEL SYSTEM

OF AN ENGINE WHILE IN STORAGE.

• Drain the fuel tank.

• Start the engine and let it run until the fuel lines and car bu re tor are empty.

• Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent.

NOTE:

Fuel stablizer 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 stablizer container. Run engine at least 10 minutes after adding stablizer to allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor.

Do not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
