times.
5. Adjusting the clutch
If the main clutch cable is not adjusted well (too
tight or loose), the clutch may not work well.
1) Starting the engine.
2) Take the clutch control rod to the middle position.
( Figure 15)
3) Turn the adjusting nut in figure 16 in a clockwise
direction to tighten the wheel clutch; or in a
anticlockwise direction to loosen it.

Note:
1. If engine runs out of fuel or has been stored for
an extended period of time, it may be necessary to
prime 5 times.
2. Priming is usually unnecessary when restarting
a warm engine.
3. If you push the primer too many times, an
excessive amount of fuel will flood the engine. This
flooded condition will make the engine difficult to
start.
3) Push Engine switch to the “ON” position. (Figure

times. In later case, the depth regulator rod should
be lowered before each succeeding pass over the
garden. Passes should be made across the length
and width of the garden alternately. Do not try to
dig too deeply in the first pass. If the machine
jumps or bucks, allow the unit to move forward
at a lightly faster rate.
If the tiller stops forward motion and tries to dig
in one spot, rock the handles from side to side to
start it moving forward again.
fig.17
Rocks which are turned up should be removed
from the garden area.
Cultivating
Cultivating is loosening or digging around growing
plants to disrupt weeds and aerate soil. Less than
50mm (2”) depth is always desirable.
fig.18
MAINTENANCE
CAUTION:
Stop the engine at the flat ground, and do not touch
the hot part or moving parts to avoid injury. If the
maintenance is required with the engine running,
be sure to keep good ventilation in the area. The
exhaust emissions from the engine contain toxic
carbon monoxide, breathing it may result injury and
even death.
Tilling
Tilling is digging in, turning over and breaking up
garden soil and prepare a seedbed for planting.
Best tilling depth is 100mm (4”) to 150mm (6”). A
tiller will also clear the soil of unwanted vegetation.
The decomposition of this vegetation matter
enriches the soil.
Keeping your tiller in top running condition will
prolong its life, and help you obtain optimum
performance whenever you wish to till your garden.
Avoid tilling soil that is too dry as it will pulverize
and produce a dust that will not hold water. Water
a few days before tilling. Also, tilling soil that is
too wet will produce unsatisfactory clods. Wait a
day or two after heavy rain for the soil to dry.
Better growth will be obtained if an area is tilled
properly and used soon after tilling to preserve
the moisture content.
Cleaning tine area
Clean the tiller underside of the tine shield after
each use. The dirt washes off tines easier if rinsed
off immediately instead of after it dries.
The type of soil and working conditions will
determine the actual setting of the tilling depth.
In some soils, the desired depth is reached first
pass over garden. In other soils, the desired depth
is obtained by going over the garden two or three
1. Turn off engine. Engine must be cool.
2. Keep the engine’s throttle control in its “STOP”
position, and remove spark plug wire from spark
plug and secure.
3. Remove all vegetation, string, wire, and other
12

materials that may have accumulated to the
axle between the inside set of tines and the
seals on the transmission housing.
4. Always towel dry the tiller afterwards and apply
a light coat of oil or silicone to prevent rusting
or water damage.
5. Replace spark plug wire.
Note: Do not use pressurized air or solvents to
clean the filter. Pressurized air can damage the
filter and solvents will dissolve the filter.
Never use a “pressure washer” to clean
your tiller. Water can penetrate tight
areas of the tiller and its transmission
case and cause damage to spindles, pulleys,
bearings, or the engine. The use of pressure
washers will result in shortened life and reduce
serviceability.
fig.19
Lubrication
Remove the tine assemblies to lubricate the tine
shafts at least once a season.
1. Replace the spark plug (Figure 19)
Check the gap (A) with a wire gauge (B).If
necessary, reset the gap. Install and tighten the
spark plug to the recommended torque. For gap
setting or torque, see the Specifications section.
fig.20
3. Drain Oil out (Figure 21)
Note:
In some areas, local law requires using a resistor
spark plug to suppress ignition signals. If this
engine was originally equipped with a resistor
spark plug, use the same type for replacement.
Caution: Use oil a hazardous waste product and
must be disposed of Properly. Do not discard with
household waste. Check with your local
authorities, service center, or dealer for safe
disposal/recycling facilities.
2. Replace the air filter (Figure 20)
The oil must be drained from the Oil Drain Plug
(Figure 21)
1) Remove the dipstick.
2) Please an approved container below the oil drain
plug.
3) Remove the oil drain plug and allow oil to the
drain into the approved container.
4) Install oil drain plug and wrench tighten.
1) Remove the air cleaner outside cover (A). Be
careful to prevent dirt and debris from falling into
the air cleaner assembly.
2) Separate the Air Filter (A) from the Air Filter
Housing (B).
3) Inspect the Air Filter. Clean dirty Air Filter with
warm water and mild soap. Allow air filter to dry
thoroughly before re-installation.
4) Install the air filter assembly onto the carburetor
and secure with screw.

5. Use clean cloths to clean off the outside of the
tiller and to keep the air vents free of
obstructions.
Do not use strong detergents or
petroleum based cleaners when
cleaning plastic parts. Chemicals can
damage plastics.
Oil Drain Plug
6. Inspect for any loose or damaged parts. Repair
or replace damaged parts and tighten loose
screws, nuts or bolts.
7. Remove the tines. Clean and apply oil to the
tines and tine shafts to prevent rusting. Mount
the tines onto the tine shafts.
8. Oil the control cables and all visible moving
parts. Do not remove the engine cover.
9. To store with the handles folded down, loosen
the knobs that secure the upper handle to the
lower handles. Carefully fold the upper handle
down. Do not allow control cables to become
pinched or bent. Tighten the knobs.
fig.21
WARNING: When you drain the oil from
the oil drain plug, the fuel tank must be
empty or fuel can leak out and result in fire
or explosion.
STORAGE
If the tiller will not be used for a period longer than
30 days, following the steps below to prepare your
tiller for storage.
Do not sore tiller with fuel in a
nonventilated area where fuel fumes may
reach flame, sparks, or any ignition
sources.
Use only approved fuel containers.
1. Drain the fuel tank completely. Stored fuel
containing ethanol or MTBE can start to go stale
in 30 days. Stale fuel has a high gum content
and can clog the carburetor and restrict fuel
flow.
2. Start the engine and allow it to run until it stops.
This ensures no fuel is left in the carburetor.
This helps prevent gum deposits from forming
inside the carburetor and possible engine
damage.
3. While the engine is still warm, drain the oil from
the engine. Refill with fresh oil of the grade
recommended in the Engine Manual.
4. Allow the engine to cool. Remove the spark
plug and put 30 ml (1 oz.) of high quality motor
oil into the cylinder. Pull the starter rope slowly
to distribute the oil. Replace the spark plug.
