HOW TO USE YOUR TILLER
The depth stake should always be below
the wheels for digging. It serves as a
brake to slow the tillers 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.
Know how to operate all controls before
adding fuel and oil or attempting to start
engine.
STOPPING
TINES
• Release forward tine control to stop forward movement•
• Release reverse tine control to stop

and store in approved, clean, covered containers, use clean fill funnels.
FILL ENGINE WITH OIL
• Remove hang tag from engine_
• With engine level, remove engine oil
filler plug.
• Fill engine with oil to point of overflowing. For approximate capacity see
"PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS"
on page
4 of this manual.
• Tilt tiller back on its wheels and then relevel.
• With engine level, refill to point of overflowing if necessary. Replace oil filler
plug.
• For cold weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting (See "OIL
VISCOSITY CHART" in the
Maintenance section of this manual).
• To change engine oil, see the
Maintenance section of this manual.
Oil Level
Oil Filler
Plug
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 32°F (0°C), use fresh,
clean, winter grade gasoline to help insure
good cold weather starting.
WARNING:
Experience indicates that
alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or
using ethanol or methancT) 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. Us9 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 permanent damage may occur.
,_CAUTION:
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. Do not overfill. Wipe off any
spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use
gasoline near an open flame.
TO START ENGINE
,_CAUTION:
Keep tine control in "OFF"
position when starting engine.
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.
• 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 compression
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 necassary.
• If engine tires 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" pos'dion 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 (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
manual.
section of this
NOTE: If engine does not start, see troubleshooting points.
• Soil conditions are important for proper
tilling. 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 line shaft and slowing 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. F,rst,
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.

_,CAUTION:
Until you are accustomed to
handling your tiller, start actual field use
with throttle in slow position (mid-way between "FAST" and "IDLE").
To help tiller move forward, lift up the handles slightly (thus lifting depth stake out of
5
ground). To slow do.,wnthe tiller, press
down on handles.
J
CULTIVATING
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 condition. (The harder or wetter
the ground, the slower the engine and line
speed needed. Under these poor conditions, _t fast speed the filler will run and
jump over the ground).
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".
• You will probably not need to use the
depth stake. Begin by tipping the depth
stake forward until if is held by the stake
spring.
• Cultivate up ano 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.
A propedy adjusted tiller Will dig with little
effort from the operator.
• Tilling is digging into, tuming over, and
breaking up packed soil before planting.
Loose, unpacked soil helps root growth.
Best tilling depth is 4" to6". 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
8t the end of the growing season to further condition the soil.

FUEL SYSTEM
IMPORTANT:
It is important to prevent
gum deposits from forming in essential fuel
system pads such as the carburetor, fuel
tilter, fuel hose, or tank dudng storage.
also, expedence indicates that alcohol
blended fuels (called gasohol or using
ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture
which leads to separation and formation of
acids dudng storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel syste m 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.
16
• 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 protective
cover that does not retain moisture. Do
not use plastic. Plastic cannot breathe
which allows condensation to form and
will cause your unit to rust.
