of the hitch so the end with two holes will face rear-
ward. Install the bolts in the holes farthest from the
latching plates (Fig. 10). Finger tighten nuts only.
ATTACH REAR QUICIK-HITCH TO AXLE (Fig. 11 & 12)
From the rear of the tractor, install the rear hitch
assembly to the tractor’s rear axle housings. This is
done by placing the hiich assembly under the tractor’s
transmission so the latch plate ends face rearward.
Turn the metal links toward the front of the tractor
(Fig. 11).
FIG, 11. Altach Rear Hitch
Raise the rear hitch so the hitch touches the bottom
of the axle housing. Turn the metal links rearward so
they hold the hitch in place. Install the two remaining

REMOVAL
The tiller can be removed from the tractor by the
following procedure:
1. Remove the drive bel}.
2. Remove the mid-mount idlers.
3. Remove the tiller from the tractor by disconnect-
ing the lift chain, the spring assist and opening
the rear quick-hitch.
For more detailed removal instructions consult the
“Installation Instructions” in the areas mentioned
above,
AND ADJUSTMENT
For maximum traction and steering control, both
front and rear wheel weights, as well as cleat tires
or tire chains are recommended when using the tiller.
PORTANT
Each time the tiller is installed, check for prop-
er operation of the PTO clutch and brake, Adjust-
ment of the PTO is covered in the tractor Owner's
Manual. In extreme applications, such as tilling
sod er hard packed ground, the PTO should be
tightened by turning the adjustment trunnion 1
to 2 full turns farther onto the PTO rod.
Do not operate the tiller until you are com-
pletely fomilior with the tiller and the tractor
controls and insure that other operators do the
same. Observe all safety precautions.
Check all connections, fasteners, and for ob-
structions in the tines before each operation.
Clear the area of all foreign materials before
filling.
The method of tilling on area depends upon the
type of soil, vegetation, compaction, moisture con-
tent, quantity of rocks or “trash”, and whether it has
— 6 —
been tilled before. Always start with the slowest
ground speed and carefully observe how the tiller is
working. If using an 8-Speed tractor, operate it in 1st
gear, Low Range, to start. Use 2nd or 3rd gear, Low
Range, as long at the tiller does not ride up on top of
the soil and begin to push the tractor. If using an
Automatic tractor, use the motion control lever to
regulate ground speed to 0.5 mph (.8 kmh) initially,
increasing speed if conditions permit.
The engine of the tractor must always be run at
full throttle. Engage and disengage PTO with the tiller
in the RAISED position. NEVER ATTEMPT TO ENGAGE
THE TILLER WHILE THE TINES ARE MAKING CONTACT
WITH GROUND.
To begin, position the tractor with the tiller in the
raised position, above the starting point. Adjust the
throttle control for full engine speed and engage the
PTO.
With the foot brake solidly applied, slowly lower
the tiller and allow it to till to depth. Engage 1st gear
or slowly move the motion control lever forward to
place the tractor into motion. Increase ground speed
as conditions permit. Maximum recommended speed
is 1.5 mph (2.4 kmh).
Because of internal valving, automatic transmission
tractors will have a tendency to speed up if the tiller
encounters a variable load. Surging will be most
noticeable in previously untilled areas, or if attempt-
ing to till too deep at one time. This will require ad-
justing the motion control lever to maintain the desir-
ed speed, and is a normal condition.
Care should be exercised when tilling sod, gumbo,
virgin ground, or very dry and packed soil, as the
tiller will have a tendency to push the tractor. This
condition can be corrected by disengaging the PTO
and raising the tiller so it penetrates only the very
top of the soil. The tiller can be lowered to the
desired depth on succeeding passes.
A CAUTION A
If the tiller starts to push the tractor, disen-
gage the PTO clutch immediately.
WHILE THE TILLER IS IN THE GROUND. DAMAGE TO
THE EQUIPMENT MAY RESULT.
At the end of each pass stop the tractor. Raise the
tiller out of the ground and disengage the PTO. Then,
it is usually easiest to turn the tractor around and
make the next pass in the opposite direction.
As with most tillers, a very small center area will
not be tilled as the tines must clear the gear box. This
can be corrected by making a second pass overlapping
the first pass.
Avoid over-tilling the soil. Soil tilled too fine will
not readily absorb moisture. Over-tilling will cause
puddling and water run-off. The soil will also com-
pact easily.
Tilling width can be varied in 3 in. (8 em) incre-
ments between 30 and 36 in. (76 and 91 cm) by
removing the outside tine assemblies.
A CAUTION A
Do not use tiller without side covers. Keep all
persons a safe distance away when operating
the tiller. Always disengage the PTO, lower the
attachment and remove the ignition key before
making any adjustment or repair.
The shape, size, obstructions, etc. of the area to
be tilled will determine the tilling pattern. Normally,
tilling is done in long straight passes. Gradual curves
can be followed while tilling. DO NOT MAKE TURNS
MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE
The oil level should be checked before using the
tiller and periodically thereafter. Oil changes are not
required.
Check the oil level by removing the pipe plug (Fig.
1 & 16) in the bottom of the right gear case, with the
tiller in operating position. 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.
GEAR BOX LUBRICANT: SAE 90-140 API Service GL-4
or GL-5 oil; refill capacity 1 qt. (.94 liter).
The tiller should be washed with a garden hose
after each use. A mild automotive type detergent may
be used to remove stubborn dirt. Touch up painted
surfaces with a fresh coat of “Wheel Horse Red”,
available from your authorized dealer in aerosol cans.
The tines should be painted, or a thin coating of
grease should be applied after each use to prevent
rust.
Store the tiller in a clean, dry place or protect it
with a waterproof cover when stored outdoors.
TILLING DEPTH/GROUND CLEARANCE/LIFT EFFORT
The following table shows the relative effects of chain length and lift cable trunnion position on tilling depth,
transport ground clearance, and lift effort, for guidance in making lift system adjustments. Tilling depth can also
be limited using the tractor’s hydraulic lift or Dial-a-Hite control, if so equipped.
NOTE
The lift bellcrank used on 1977 and prior tractors (Supplied with Service Assemblies mentioned under
“Description”) does not have slots to permit changing the chain end link location as described below. Short-
en the chain at the tiller end and change the lift cable trunnion location to alter tilling depth and transport
ground clearance. |
