BEFORE STARTING ENGINE IMPORTANT: Be very careful not to allow dirt to enter the engine when checking or adding oil or fuel. Use clean oil and fuel and store in approved, clean, covered containers, use clean fill funnels. CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL • The engine in your unit has been shipped, from the factory, already filled with SAE 30 summer weight oil. With engine level, clean area around oil filler plug and remove plug. Engine oil should be to point of overlowing when engine is level For approximate capacity see "PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS" on page 4 of this manual. All oil must meet A.P.I. Service Classification SF, SG or SH. Reinstall engine oil cap and tighten For cold weather operation you should change oil for easier starting (See oil viscosity chart in the Customer Responsibilities section of this manual). To change engine oil, see the Customer Responsibilities section in this manual. The back edges of the outer side shields are slotted so that the shields can be raised for deep tilling and lowered for shallow tilling to protect small plants from being buried. Loosen nut =A" in slot and nut =l_". Move shield to desired position (both sides). Retighten nuts. TO TRANSPORT _CAUTION: Before lifting or transport- ing, allow tiller engine and muffler to cool. Disconnect spark plug wire. Drain gasoline from fuel tank. 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. IMPORTANT: When operating in temperatures below 40°F (4°C), use fresh, clean, winter grade gasoline to help insure good cold weather starting. AROUND THE YARD Release the depth s_take pin. Move the dr.pth stake down to the top hole for transporting the tiller. Place depth stake pin in hole of depth stake to lock in position. This prevents tines from scuffing the ground. 10 WARNING:Experienceindicatesthat alcoh01blendedfuels(calledgasoholor using ethanolor methanol)canattractmoisture whichleadsto separationandformation 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 carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or P_rcmanent damage may occur. AUTION: Fill to within 1/2 inch of top of fuel tank to prevent spills and to allow for fuel expansion. If gasoline is accidentally spilled, move machine away from area of spill. Avoid creating any source of ignition until gasoline vapors have disappeared. o not overfill. Wipe off any spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline near an open flame. TO START ENGINE pep ._,CAUTION: drive control bar in DISENGAGED position when starting engW ine, hen 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. • Move shift lever indicator to "N" (neutral) position. • Place throttle control in "FAST" position. • Turn fuel shut-off valve 1/4 turn to OPEN position. • Move choke control to CHOKE position. • Grasp recoil starter handle with one hand and grasp tiller handle with other hand. Pul/rope out slowly until engine reaches start of compression cycle (rope will pull slightly harder at this point). Fuel shut-off Rewind start_ Choke controls • Pull recoil starter handle quickly. Do not let starter handle snap back against starter. • If engine fires 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 starting. • 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 40°F), the carburetor fuel mixture may need to be adjusted for best engine pertomrance. See 'q-O ADJUST CARBURETOR in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual. NOTE: If engine does not start, see troubleshooting points. TILLING HINTS _CAUTION: Until you are accustomed to handling your tiller, start actual field use with thro_le in slow positio.n.(mid-way between FAST" and "IDLE ). • 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 furthe. condition the soil. • Soil conditions are important for proper tillinQ. Tines will 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 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 tne shaft and sow ng your tilling operation. • You will find tilling much easier if you leave a row untilled between passes. Then go back between tilled rows.There are two reasons for doing this. First, wide turns are much easier to negotiate than about-feces. Second, the tille= won't be pulling itself, and you, toward the row next to it. 11 • Do not lean on handle..This takes weight off the wheels andreduces raction. To get through a ,rea!ly tough section of sod or hard ground, apply upward pressure on handle or lower the depth stake. A © © © © 0101010 0101010 0101010 0101010 _J TINE SHEAR _J PINS The tine assemblies on your tiller are secured to the tine shaft with shear pins (See "FINE REPLACEMENT" in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). If the tiller is unusually overloaded or jammed, the shear pins are designed to break before internal damage occurs to the transmission. 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 soil crust will help retain moisture in the soil. Best digging depth is 1" to 3" (2.5-7.5 cm). Lower the outer side shields to protect small plants from being buried, • 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. • Do not lean on handle, this takes weight off the wheels, reduces traction, and • If shear pin(s) break, replace only with those shown in the Repair Parts section of this manual. may cause the tiller to skip over the ground. • Always lower the drag stake when using the forward rotating tine drive. 12 WW SCHEDULE FI,,,N o, °s /. 7'2Z ya ,, Check Engine Oil Level l/ ERV,OE k/ Change EngineOil t_,2 Oil Pivot Points Inspect Spark Arrester / Muffler t4/ Inspect Air Screen IV/ Clean or Replace Air Cleaner Cartridge I_ 2 Clean Engine Cylinder Fins V/ Replace Spark Plug I_ I - Change more often when operating ut',der a lies W load o_in high an'_nt 2 - Senfce mo_e often when operating in Okty or duStyconditions, GENERAL temperatures.

However, engine performance can be affected by differences in fuel, temperature, altitude or load. If the carburetor Maintenance, repair, or repracement of the emission control devices and systems, which are being done at thQ customers expense, may be performed by any nonroad engine repair establishment or individual. Warranty repairs must be performed by an authorized engine manufacturer's service outlet. does need adjustment, contact your nearest authorized service center/department IMPORTANT: Never tamper with the engine governor, which is factory set for proper engine speed. Overspeeding the engine above the factory high speed setting can be dangerous. If you think the engine-governed high speed needs adjusting, contact your nearest authorized service center/department, which has the proper equipment and experience to make any necessary adjustments. TO ADJUST THROTTLE CONTROL CABLE • The throttle Control has been preset at the factory and adjustment should not be necessary. If adjustment is necessary, proceed as follows: • With engine not running, move remote throttle control lever to =FAST" position. • If throttle lever on engine touches high speed stop, no further adjustment js necessary. If throttle lever does not touch high speed stop, continue with adjustment procedure. • Loosen cable clamp screw. • Move throttle lever up until it touches high speed stop, and hold in this position. • Tighten cable clamp screw securely. Fuel Tank / Clamp , Screw Governor Control Lever 18 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. A_,CAUTION: Never store the tiller with gasoline in the tank inside a building where fumes may reach an open flame or spark. Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure. TILLER • Clean entire tiller (See =CLEANING" in the Customer Responsibilities section of this manual). • Inspect and replace belts, if necessary (See belt replacement instructions in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). • Lubricate as shown in the Customer Responsibilities section of this manual. • Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws are securely fastened. Inspect moving parts for damage, breakage and wear. Replace if necessary. • Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting. ENGINE 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. 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 leP_t 10 minutes after adding stabilizer to allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor. Do not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer. ENGINE OIL Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace with clean oil. (See =ENGINE" in the Customer Responsibilities section of this manual). 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, 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 d_rt. • C_ver your unit with a suitable protective covP.r that does not retain moisture. Do not'use plastic. Plastic cannot breathe which allows condensation to form and will cause your unit to rust. IMPORTANT: Never cover tiller while engine and exhaust areas are still warm. • 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. 19 PROBLEM CAUSE CORRECTION I Will not start 1.
