o Push rearward on tine clutch lever to start tine rotation_ o Move Tiller lift handle to lower Tiller.

o Setect lowest tractor ground speed at tractor engine

TO ADJUST DEPTH STAKE

o Depth stake has five position holes to select tilling depth from 1 to 5 tnches_

• The top stake hole selects the sallowest tilling depth and the bottom stake hole selects the deepest position.

TnLLING

FUG. 7

CHOKE

YOUR TILLER

O if the soil is extremely hard and dry, it may be

desirable to cross till an area at shallow depth first, then till in the direction of planting rows on the second pass at the final depth

• Where possible, we recommend tilling In a pattern similar to that shown in Fig. 8. Make tile first pass, then skip a space equal to the width of the tiller, and make the return pass. Then till the skipped area.

Tilling in this pattern will enable you to maintain better control° If the passes were made side-by-side, the tractor and tiller would tend to pull toward the tilled (soft) side.

o Check ground moisture: If you can make a ball in your hand out of ground to be tilled, do not till sotl if too wet. This causes lumps which are difficult to work up.

o When operating for the first time, proceed slowly and carefully until you become familiar with the proper method of operating the tiller°

= In soil that has ttlled the year before, select the tilling depth at which the tiller engine runs comfortably and does not stall or pull down.

Lower depth for additional passes If greater depth is desired° o Whenever working multiple passes, go perpendicular to the previous tilling direction.

,, in cases where the soil is too hard to get proper penitration or if tilling action causes Tiller to hop or bounce, it wilt be necessary to purchase a set of Tiller

(Wheel) Weights.

o The most efficient tillage is obtained when Tiller

Engine ts operated at full throttle. The sound of the

Tiller Engine will tell you. When Tiller' Engine is lightly loaded, raise Gauge Wheels to increase tilling depth.

If Engine seems to be overloaded or stalls out, lower Gauge Wheels for shallower' tilling..

o Operate Tiller Engine at full throttle and operate tractor in slowest forward speed, with tractor engine at idle speed or just above idle. You will soon learn the proper combination of tilling depth and speed for good tillage.

= Soil conditions will determine how deep Tiller can penetrate on the first pass In extremely hard ground, severa! passes may be necessary to till to a depth of 6 inches. While in soft ground, Tiller may penetrate to a depth of 6 inches in the first pass.

TILLING

HINTS

IMPORTANT OPERATING HINTS

NOTE: The following is a general guideline of tilling,

but may vary depending upon soil conditions.

= in _soil, the tiller should be started in the

shallowest depth position and lowered one position at a time after each pass in each positiOnr | 0 o o

CULTIVATING

Your tiller may be used for cultivating which required a minimum of two (2) inches of soll penetration.

Set depth stake so the Tiller will penetrate soil to a depth of 2 to 3 inches. The Tiller Engine should be run at full throttle except when cultivating small plants. A slower engine is necessary to prevent burying the plants.
