Operator’s Manual
IMPORTANT: Read this manual, and your tractor manual, carefully. They
contain information about your safety and the safety of others. Also
become familiar with the controls and their proper use before you operate
the product.
Introduction
We want you to be completely satisfied with your
new product, so feel free to contact your local
Authorized Service Dealer for help with service,
genuine replacement parts, or other information you
may require.
Whenever you contact your Authorized Service
Dealer or the factory, always know the model and
serial numbers of your product. These numbers will
help the Service Dealer or Service Representative
provide exact information about your specific
product. You will find the model and serial number
plate located in a unique place on the product as
shown below.
The warning system in this manual identifies
potential hazards and has special safety messages that
help you and others avoid personal injury, even death.
DANGER, WARNING and CAUTION are signal
words used to identify the level of hazard. However,
regardless of the hazard, be extremely careful.
DANGER signals an extreme hazard that will cause
serious injury or death if the recommended
precautions are not followed.
WARNING signals a hazard that may cause serious
injury or death if the recommended precautions are
not followed.
CAUTION signals a hazard that may cause minor or
moderate injury if the recommended precautions are
not followed.
Two other words are also used to highlight
information. “Important” calls attention to special
mechanical information and “Note” emphasizes
general information worthy of special attention.
The left and right side of the machine is determined
by sitting on the seat in the normal operator’s
position.

Support the tiller housing so it sets in an upright
position. Remove the 3/8 x 5–1/2” (140 mm)
bolt, 3/8 x 4–1/2” (114 mm) bolt, and (2) 3/8”
locknuts; discard the 1/2” nuts (used as spacers
for shipping).

POTENTIAL HAZARD
• Rotating shaft or cooling fan can cause
injury.
Remove the two bolts and locknuts securing the
transaxle cover to the tractor frame.
Note:
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Fingers, hands, feet, hair, etc. can get
caught by shaft or fan.
• Loose clothing can get caught by shaft.
Save all parts and hardware for use
when reinstalling the transaxle cover.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Do not operate the tractor without the drive
shaft cover in place.
• Keep hands and arms clear of rotating
shaft or fan.

10. Connect the lift cable to the trunnion by
threading the trunnion onto the lift cable
(Fig. 15).
11. Attach the trunnion to the hole in the tiller lift
cable mount with a washer and hairpin cotter
(Fig. 15).
Note:
There should be slack in the cable so
the tiller will drop into the ground.
The amount of cable that is threaded
into the trunnion determines the
maximum depth of tilling and lift
height.
POTENTIAL HAZARD
• Components under the hood will be hot if
the tractor has been running.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Touching hot components can cause burns.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Allow the tractor to cool before performing
maintenance or touching components
under the hood.
14. Route the PTO drive belt around the jack shaft’s
PTO pulley (Fig. 10), then through the center of
the pulley box between the two pulleys.
15. Release the belt tension release arm of the pulley
box housing and swing it out toward you (Fig.
18).

Installation
C.
16. Position the end of the PTO belt (long belt) into
the groove of the engine PTO pulley (Fig. 16),
making sure it is also under the pulleys in the
pulley box. The wide, flat surface of the belt
needs to be in contact with the wide, flat surface
of the backside idler pulley (Fig. 17). Additional
belt slack can be obtained (if needed) by turning
the belt tension adjustment knob.
D. Once the indicators are in the same position
on both sides, swing the tension release arm
into the pulley box by moving it into the
position shown in Figure 18.

POTENTIAL HAZARD
• Contact with rotating tines may cause
injury.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Rotating tines can cut hands, feet or other
body parts.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Keep away from the rotating tines while
operating the tiller.
m–3258
• Keep your hands, feet, and any other part
of your body or clothing away from
rotating parts.
• Before adjusting, cleaning, repairing and
inspecting the tiller, shut off the engine and
wait for all moving parts to stop. Move the
power take off (PTO) to “OFF” and rotate
the ignition key to “OFF.” Remove the
ignition key.

Raising Attachments
1.
Start the tractor.
2.
Pull the lift lever UP to raise the attachment
(Fig. 24). This will lift and hold the attachment
in the raised position.
Attachment Power Lift
The attachment power lift (Fig. 23) is used to raise
and lower attachments.
POTENTIAL HAZARD
• When the engine is off, attachments in the
raised position can gradually lower.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Someone nearby may be pinned or injured
by the attachment as it lowers.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Always lower the attachment lift each time
you shut off the tractor.
14
Operation
Lowering Attachments
Tips for Tilling
1.
Start the tractor.
Clean area of trash, branches and rocks before tilling
to prevent equipment damage.
2.
Push the lift lever DOWN to lower the
attachment (Fig. 24).
Always begin tilling with the slowest ground speed
possible. Increase speed if conditions permit.
1
Always use full throttle (maximum engine speed)
when tilling.
2
Always engage the power take off (PTO) with tiller in
the raised position.
m–3315
Figure 24
1. Lift lever–Up
2. Lift lever–Down
Till in long, straight passes. Do not make turns while
the tiller is in the ground, as equipment damage may
result.
A small center area will not be tilled due to the gear
case. Overlapping with a second pass will eliminate
this condition.
Avoid excessive tilling of the soil, as finely tilled soil
will not absorb moisture easily and puddles of water
or run-off may occur.
When tilling hard packed, very dry or virgin soil,
raise the tiller so only the very top of the soil is
penetrated. On succeeding passes the depth may be
lowered. This reduces the tiller’s tendency to push the
tractor. If this happens, disengage the power take off
(PTO) and reduce forward speed.
Use low range (on the high–low range lever) for best
performance and smoothest operation.
POTENTIAL HAZARD
• There may be buried power, gas, and/or
telephone lines in the area needing tilling.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Shock or explosion may occur.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Have the property or area to be tilled
marked for buried lines.

POTENTIAL HAZARD
• If you leave the key in the ignition switch, someone could start the engine.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
• Accidental starting of the engine could seriously injure you or other bystanders.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
• Remove the key from the ignition switch and pull the wire(s) off the spark plug(s)
before you do any maintenance. Also push the wire(s) aside so it does not
accidentally contact the spark plug(s).

Notes
Maintenance
Greasing and Lubrication
Service Interval/Specification
Check the gear lubrication level in the gear case after
every 25 operating hours or once a year, whichever
occurs first. Gear lubrication changes are not
required.
Gear lube type: SAE 90-140 API service GL-4 or
GL-5.
1
m–3497
Refill capacity: 1 qt.
Figure 25

Checking Gear Lube
1. Pipe plug (hidden)
1.
2.
Position the tractor and tiller on a level surface
and lower the attachment lift so that the tiller
tines are on the ground. Set the parking brake
and turn the ignition key to “STOP” to stop the
engine. Remove the ignition key.
Clean the area around the lower pipe plug
(Fig. 25).
Checking Tiller Drive Belt
Tension
1.
Disengage the power take off (PTO), set the
parking brake, lower the attachment lift and turn
the ignition key to “STOP” to stop the engine.
Remove the ignition key.
3.
Remove the pipe plug carefully because the oil
level may be above the level of the pipe plug.
4.
If gear lube runs from the case when the plug is
removed, the lube in the case is sufficient. Oil
may be added as necessary.
2.
As the drive belt wears and the tiller is raised
and lowered, the spring–loaded idler arm moves
(Fig. 26).
5.
Apply pipe sealant to the plug and reinstall.
3.
Lower the tiller and observe the spring–loaded
idler arm movement as you push on the belt. The
idler arm spring must be under tension. If it is
not under tension, replace the drive belt.
