The operation of any tiller can result in foreign objects thrown into the eyes, which can
result in severe eye damage. Always wear safety glasses or eye shields before starting
your tiller and while tilling. We recommend a wide vision safety mask over the spectacles
or standard safety glasses.
HOW TO USE YOUR
STOPPING
TILLING
TILLER
The speed and depth of tilling is regulated by the position
of the depth stake and wheel height,
(See Fig. 5)
TINES
,
Release forward tine control to stop forward mov_merit.
•
Release reverse tine control to stop reverse movement.
The depth stake should always be below the wheels for
digging. It serves as a brake to stow 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.

This engine on this product is designed for maximum
performance and life if operated with the choke (lXI) fully
open and the throttle control in the fast (,_) position. To
open the choke fully requires an engine warm-up period of
several seconds to several minutes, depending on the
temperature.
After starting the engine, first open the choke slowly until
the engine just begins to run smoothly. Then open the
choke in small steps, allowing the engine to accept small
changes in speed and load, until the choke is fully open.
During engine warm-up, the equipment can be operated.
When starting engine for the first 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 properly connected.
"
Place throttle control in "FAST" position.
=
With engine fully choked, grasp recoil starter handle
with one hand and grasp tiller handle with other hand,
Pull rope out slowly until engine reaches start of com_
pression 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
in half choked position.
•
When engine starts, slowly move choke control to
"RUN" position as engine warms up,

ADD GASOLINE
•
Fill fuel tank. Use fresh, clean, regular unleaded
gasoline. (Use of leaded gasoline will increase carbon
and lead oxide deposits and reduce valve life.)

GASOLINE TO HELP INSURE GOOD COLD WEATHER
STARTING.
WARNING:
Experience indicates that alcohol blended
fuels (called gasohot 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. To avoid engine
problems, the fuel system should be emptied before
storage 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 season, See Storage section
of this manual for additional information. Never use engine
or carburetorcleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent
10_
damage may occur.
•
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 (3000 feet) or in cold temperatures (below 32°F), the carburetor fuel mixture may need to
be adjusted for best engine performance. See "TO ADJUST CARBURETOR" in the Service and Adjustments
section of this manual.

You will find tilling much easier if you leave a row
untilled between passes. Then go back over the entire
area at right angles (See Fig. 9), There are two reasons
for doing this. First, wide turns are much easier to
negotiate than about-faces. Second, the tiller won't be
pulling itself, and you, toward the row next to it.

when working extremely hard soil or sod, Then work

CULTIVATING
Cultivating is destroying the weeds between rows to prevent them from robbing nourishment and moisture from
the plants. At the same time, breaking up the upper layer
of soit crust will help retain moisture in the soil. Best
digging depth is 1" to 3".

• You win probably not need to use the depth stake.
Begin by tipping the depth stake forward until it is heldby the stake spring.
_IJU,,,,H,,==
To help titler move forward, Iiff up the handles slightly (thus
lifting depth stake out of ground). To slow down the tiller,
press down on handles.
• Cultivate up and down the rows at a speed which will
allow tines to uproot weeds and leave the ground in
rough condition, promoting no further growth of weeds
and grass (See Fig. 10).
if you are straining or tiller is shaking, the wheets 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 soiFcondition. (The harder or
wetter the ground, the slower the engine and tine speed
needed. Under these poor conditions, at fast speed the tiJler
will run and jump over the ground).
A
\J
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". A tiller
will also clear the soil of unwanted vegetation. The
decomposition of this vegetable matter enriches the
soil. Depending on the climate (rainfall and wind), it
may be advisable to till the soil at the end of the growing
season to further condition the soil.
\j"
FIG. 10
Soil conditions are important for proper titling. Tines witt
not readily penetrate dry, hard soil which may contribute to excessive bounce and difficult handling of your
tiller. Hard soil should be moistened before tilling;
however, extremely wet soil wilt "ball-up" or clump
during tii_ing. Wait until the soi! is less wet in order to
achieve the best results. When tiiling in the fail, remove
vines and tong grass to prevent them from wrapping
around the tine shaft and slowing your tillingoperation.

TRANSMISSION
Do not operate tiller without muffler. Do not tamper with
exhaust system. Damaged mufflers or spark arresters
could create a fire hazard. Inspect periodically and replace
if necessary. If your engine is equipped with a spark
arrester screen assembly, remove every 50 hours for
cleaning and inspection. Replace if damaged.
Your transmission is sealed and wilt only require lubrication
if it is serviced.
SPARK
CLEANING
PLUG
Replace spark plugs at the beginning of each tilling season
or after every 50 hours of use, whichever comes first. Spark
plug type and gap setting is shown in "PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS" on page 3 of this manual.
•
Clean engine, wheels, finish, etc. of all foreign matter.
•
Keep finished surfaces and wheels free of all gasoline,
oil, etc.

does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic
cannot breathe which allows condensation to form and
will cause your unit to rust.
ENGINE
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
carburetor are empty.
=
Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the
fuel tank or permanent damage may occur.
Use fresh fuel next season.
"
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer 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 stabilizer
container. Run engine at least !0 minutes after adding
stabilizer to allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor. Do
not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
