• Never allow bystanders near the unit.

• Use only attachments and accessories approved by the manufacturer of the tiller.

• Never operate the tiller without good visibility or light.

• Be careful when tilling in hard ground. The tines may catch in the ground and propel the tiller forward. If this occurs, let go of the handlebars and do not restrain the machine.

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 flammable.

• Use an approved fuel container.

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

• Fill fuel tank outdoors with extreme care. Never fill fuel tank indoors.

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

• Use extension cords and receptacles as specified 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 specifically rec om mend ed by manufacturer).

MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE

• Keep machine, attachments, and accessories in safe work ing condition.

• Check shear pins, engine mounting bolts, and other bolts at frequent intervals for proper tightness to be sure the equip ment is in safe working condition.

• Never store the machine with fuel in the fuel tank inside a building where ignition sources are present, such as hot water and space heaters, clothes dryers, and the like. Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure.

• Always refer to the operator’s guide instructions for im por tant details if the tiller is to be stored for an extended period.

OPERATION

ADD GASOLINE

• Fill fuel tank to bottom of filler neck. Do not overfill.

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 flame.

IMPORTANT:

WHEN OPERATING IN TEMPERATURES BELOW

32°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. 14)

CAUTION: Keep drive control bar in

“DISENGAGED” position when start-

ing en gine.

When starting engine for the first time or if engine has run out of fuel, it will take longer to start the engine.

OPERATION

TILLING HINTS (See Fig. 15)

CAUTION: Until you are accustomed to handling your tiller, start actual field use with throttle in slow position (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" (10-15 cm).

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

The de com po si tion of this vegetable mat ter enriches 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.

• You will find tilling much easier if you leave a row untilled between passes. Then go back between tilled rows. (See Fig. 15) 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.

• Soil conditions are important for proper tilling. Tines will not readily penetrate dry, hard soil which may con trib ute to excessive bounce and difficult 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, re move vines and long grass to prevent them from wrapping around the tine shaft and slowing your tilling operation.

• Do not lean on handle. This takes weight off the wheels and reduces traction. To get through a really tough section of sod or hard ground, apply upward pressure on handle or lower the depth stake.

Fig. 16

• Do not lean on handle, this takes weight off the wheels, reduces traction, and may cause the tiller to skip over the ground.

Always lower the drag stake when using the for ward rotating tine drive.

ADJUST WHEELS FOR CULTIVATING

(See Figs. 17 and 18)

• Place blocks under right hand side of tiller and remove hairpin clip and clevis pin from right hand wheel.

• Move wheel outward approximately 1 inch until hole in inner wheel hub lines up with inner hole in axle.

• Replace clevis pin and hairpin clip on inside of wheel and remove blocks.

• Repeat preceding steps on left hand side.

NOTE

: In extremely rough conditions and while cultivating, the wheels should be moved outward on the axle for increased stability.

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). 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 (See Fig. 16).

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

40°F (4°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 tiller is not used for 25 hours in one year.

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

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

TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL (See Figs. 19 and 20)

• Be sure tiller is on level surface.

• Oil will drain more freely when warm.

• Use a funnel to prevent oil spill on tiller, and catch oil in a suitable con tain er.

• Remove drain plug.

• For easier removal of plug use 7/16 12 Pt. socket with extension.

• Tip tiller forward to drain oil.

• After oil has drained completely, replace oil drain plug and tighten securely.

• Remove oil filler plug. Be careful not to allow dirt to enter the engine.

• Refill engine with oil. See “CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL” in the Operation section of this manual.

MUFFLER

Do not operate tiller without muffler. Do not tamper with exhaust system. Damaged mufflers or spark arresters could create a fire hazard. Inspect pe ri odi cally and re place if nec-

es sary. If your engine is equipped with a spark arrester screen assembly, re move every 50 hours for cleaning and inspection. Re place if dam aged.

SPARK PLUG

Replace spark plugs at the beginning of each tilling sea-

son or after every 50 hours of use, whichever comes first.

Spark plug type and gap setting is shown in “PRODUCT

SPEC I FI CA TIONS” on page 3 of this manual.

TRANSMISSION

Once a season, lubricate the right hand side gear case grease fitting with 1 oz. of EP #1 Grease.

CLEANING

Do not clean your tiller when the engine and transmission are hot. We do not rec om mend using pressurized water

(gar den hose, etc.) to clean your unit un less the gasket area around the trans mis sion and the engine muf fler, air fil ter and car bu re tor are cov ered to keep wa ter out. Wa ter in en gine will short en the useful life of your tiller.

• Clean engine, wheels, finish, etc. of all foreign matter.

• Keep finished surfaces and wheels free of all gas o line, oil, etc.

• Protect painted surfaces with au to mo tive type wax.

TO GUIDES.

• Check belt adjustment as described below.

• Replace belt guard.

• Reposition wheel and replace clevis pin and hairpin clip.

GROUND DRIVE BELT ADJUSTMENT ( S e e

Fig. 26)

For proper belt tension, the extension spring should have about 5/8 inch (16 mm) stretch when drive control bar is in “EN GAGED” position. This tension can be attained as fol lows:

• Loosen cable clip screw securing the drive control cable.

• Slide cable forward for less tension and rearward for more tension until about 5/8 inch (16 mm) stretch is obtained while the drive control bar is engaged.

• Tighten cable clip screw securely.

SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENTS

TINE REPLACEMENT

(See Figs. 27, 28 and 29)

CAUTION: Tines are sharp. Wear gloves or other protection when han-

dling tines.

A badly worn tine causes your tiller to work harder and dig more shallow. Most important, worn tines cannot chop and shred organic matter as effectively nor bury it as deeply as good tines. A tine this worn needs to be replaced.

• To maintain the superb tilling performance of this ma-

chine the tines should be checked for sharpness, wear, and bending, particularly the tines which are next to the transmission. If the gap between the tines ex ceeds

3-1/2 inches they should be replaced or straight ened as necessary.

• For tines that are slightly worn, the bolt ed tine and hub assemblies can be switched between sides to continue till ing in the same tilling mode if tilling in a different mode is desired then the bolt ed tine and hub assemblies should be switched back to their original side so that the tine edge with the least wear will be used.

TO ADJUST THROTTLE CONTROL CABLE

(See Fig. 30)

The throttle control has been preset at the factory and ad just ment 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 is 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.

TO AD JUST CARBURETOR

The carburetor has been preset at the factory and ad just ment should not be necessary. However, engine per for mance can be affected by dif fer enc es in fuel, tem per a ture, al ti tude or load. If the carburetor does need ad just ment, contact your nearest authorized service center/de part ment

IMPORTANT:

NEVER TAMPER WITH THE ENGINE GOVERNOR,

WHICH IS FACTORY SET FOR PROPER ENGINE SPEED.

OVER SPEED ING 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 EQUIP MENT AND

EXPERIENCE 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.

CAUTION: Never store the tiller with gasoline in the tank inside a build ing where fumes may reach an open flame 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.

• Empty the fuel tank by starting 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.

• Use fresh fuel next season.

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 empty the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
