are difficult to see, especially at
night.
▲ Flashing warning lights and turn
signals are recommended
whenever driving on public roads.
▲ Comply with state and local laws.
▲ Maximum transport speed for

10 mph when weight is more
than weight of tractor but less
than double the weight of
tractor.
▲ IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load
that is more than double the
weight of tractor.
Operate Equipment Safely
▲ The operator must not use drugs
or alcohol as they can change the
alertness or coordination of that
person while operating the
equipment. The operator should, if
he is taking over-the-counter
drugs, seek medical advice on
whether he can safely operate the
equipment.
▲ Keep bystanders away.
Start tractor with gearshift in park
or neutral and park brakes set. Be
aware hydraulics are live upon
start-up and can move instantly.
▲ Dig Safe, Call 811.
Always contact your local utility
companies (electrical, telephone,
gas, water, sewer, and others)
before digging so that they may
mark the location of any under
ground services in the area. Be
sure to ask how close you can
work to the marks they positioned.
▲ Avoid contact with any over head
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.

Driveline Installation
Implement End
Refer to Figure 1-3, Figure 1-4 and Figure 1-5:
The tiller driveline is coupled to the tractor and implement
shafts with either push pin couplers, pull collar couplers
or a combination of both, and with either a shear bolt or
slip clutch on one end for protection from shock loads.
Always engage PTO at low engine rpm to minimize
start-up torque. Drivelines with friction slip clutches
must go through a “run-in” operation prior to initial
use and after long periods of inactivity. See
“Driveline Protection” on page 21 for detailed
instructions on maintaining the slip clutch.
If Rotary Tiller is used on more than one tractor, an
additional driveline may be required - especially if a quick
hitch is used.

5. Grease driveline shaft and all other grease fittings.
Refer to “Lubrication” on page 25.
6. Clear area to be tilled of rocks, branches, and other
foreign objects.
7. Tall grass and weeds should be mowed before tilling.
8. Do not engage PTO at full throttle. Once engaged,
increase throttle to 540 PTO speed. Tiller tines will
cut better at 540 PTO speed than at reduced throttle.
9. Tilling should not be done in wet conditions as soil
will stick to tines.
10. At first begin tilling at a slow forward speed and shift
up as ground conditions warrant.
11. Operated tiller with deck level to the ground.
12. Tiller should be operated with the tiller deck level to
the ground.
13. Tiller tines will cut better when operating the tractor
at full 540 rpm PTO speed than at reduced throttle.
14. After tilling the first 50 feet, stop and check to see that
the tiller is adjusted properly.
15. Do not make turns or attempt to back up while tiller is
in the ground. See important note below.
WARNING
Place support blocks under tiller as needed to prevent unit
from tipping over onto a child and/or an adult. A tiller that tips
over can result in injury or death.
IMPORTANT: Turning or backing up with rotary tines
in the ground will damage the tiller.
16. Do not engage PTO with machine in the fully raised
or lowered position.
17. Periodically check for foreign objects wrapped
around the rotor shaft and remove them after
disengaging PTO, turning off tractor engine, and
removing ignition key.
7. Check tiller for stability by physically applying
pressure at the hitch plates to see if it will tip forward
or backwards. If the tiller moves in either direction,
then block under the tiller as needed to prevent that
movement.
8. See “Storage” on page 24 for additional information
on long term storage of your tiller.

Section 2: Operating
General Operating Instructions
Before using your Land Pride RTA10 or RTA15 Series
Rotary Tiller, you should have completely read the
Operator’s Manual, properly attached the tiller to the
tractor, cut the driveline to proper length, run-in the
clutch, and gone through the Operating Checklist. If you
have missed any of these steps, please complete them
before proceeding.
Now that you have properly prepared yourself and your
tiller, it’s time to do some tilling. Carefully drive the tractor
to the site where you intend to till. You should have
already cleaned this site of any large limbs, rocks,
trash, metal, or other debris. Best results will be
achieved if you have mounted your tiller offset to the right
far enough to cover the tread of your right tractor wheel.
Line the tractor up just to the right of center on your tillage
plot. You will be working from the center out and always
turning to the right to line up for your next pass.
Lower the tiller half way to the ground and reduce your
tractor engine speed to about one quarter throttle.
Engage the PTO and gradually increase the engine
speed until you reach full PTO speed of 540 rpm. Lower
tiller to the ground and simultaneously commence
forward travel of approximately 2 mph. Do not make turns
or attempt to back up while tiller is in the ground. See
important note below.
IMPORTANT: Turning or backing up with rotary tines
in the ground will damage the tiller.
Travel about 50 ft. and then stop to check your results.
When stopping, remember to lift the tiller out of the
ground, stop the tractor, reduce engine speed,
disengage the PTO, set the park brake, shut off the
tractor, and remove the keys. If you are tilling too shallow
or too deep, adjust the skid shoes accordingly. If the soil
texture is too coarse, lower the leveling door and reduce
your ground speed. If the soil texture is too fine, you will
need to raise your leveling door and increase your
ground speed. For any other problem conditions that may
arise, you will want to refer to the Troubleshooting section
on page 31.
When you are done tilling for the day, make sure you use
proper tractor shut down procedures before you get off of
the tractor. If you are detaching your tiller, make sure you
park it on a dry and level surface leaving it clean and
ready for the next use. When you put your tiller up for the
season, make sure you refer to the Storage Directions on
page 24.
With a little practice and a few adjustments, you will soon
be achieving the results you want with your Land Pride
Rotary Tiller. See “Features and Benefits” Section 6
or “Specifications and Capacities” Section 5 for
additional information and performance enhancing
options.

Maintenance
Driveline Protection
Proper servicing and adjustment is the key to the long life
of any implement. With careful inspection and routine
maintenance, you can avoid costly downtime and repair.
Tiller drive components are protected from shock loads
with either a two plate friction clutch or a shear bolt.
Shear bolt protection is discussed on page 23.
The parts on your Rotary Tiller have been specially
designed and should only be replaced with genuine Land
Pride parts. Do not alter the tiller in a way which will
adversely affect its performance.
Friction clutches should be “run-in” prior to initial
operation and after long periods of inactivity to remove
any oxidation that may have accumulated on the friction
surfaces. Repeat “run-in” instructions at the beginning of
each season and when moisture and/or condensation
seizes the inner friction plates.
Check all bolts and pins after using the unit for several
hours and on a regular basis thereafter to ensure they
are tight and secured.
Replace worn, damaged, or illegible safety labels by
obtaining new labels from your Land Pride dealer.
!
CAUTION
For safety reasons, each maintenance operation must be
performed with tractor PTO disengaged, tiller lowered
completely to the ground or onto support blocks, tractor
engine shut off, and ignition key removed.
Tine Replacement
Refer to Figure 4-1:
Refer to Figure 4-2 below and Figure 4-3 on page 23 to
determine which friction clutch your tiller has. Follow
run-In, disassembly, and assembly instructions for your
specific clutch.
Clutches With 4 Adjusting Nuts
Clutch Run-In
Refer to Figure 4-2 (View - A):
1. Using a pencil or other marker, scribe a line across the
exposed edges of the clutch plates and friction disks.
2. Tighten all 4 nuts uniformly until spring load is low
enough that the clutch slips freely with PTO
engaged.
! WARNING
Worn tines may be very sharp!
23696
IMPORTANT: When ordering, be sure to order
genuine Land Pride replacement tines only and to
order both right and left-hand tines. Always install
tines with cutting edge facing direction of rotation.
IMPORTANT: Remove and install one tine at a time
to ensure they are oriented correctly when installed.
1. Remove the 2 hex head cap screws and fasteners
from the tine being replaced and then remove tine.
2. Attach new tine to the mounting flange making
certain it is positioned so that the cutting edge
crosses over the mounting flange and leads in
rotation as shown in Figure 4-1.
3. Replace removed cap screws and nuts. Tighten nuts
to the proper torque.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 until tines have been replaced.

3. Start tractor and engage PTO for 2-3 seconds to
permit slippage of clutch surfaces. Disengage PTO,
then re-engage a second time for 2-3 seconds.
Disengage PTO, shut off tractor, and remove key.
Wait for all components to stop before dismounting
from tractor.
4. Inspect clutch and ensure that the scribed markings
made on the clutch plates have changed position.
Slippage has not occurred if any two marks on the
friction disk and plate are still aligned. A clutch that
has not slipped must be disassembled to separate
the friction disk plates. See “Clutch Disassembly &
Assembly” on page 22.
Refer to Figure 4-2 (View - B):
5. Turn all 4 nuts fully back if no two marks on the
friction disk and plate are still aligned. Clutch is ready
for use.
6. The clutch should be checked during first hour of
tilling and periodically each week. An additional set
of scribe marks can be added to check for slippage.

Shearbolt Protection
Avoid shear bolt breakage by making sure the tiller is out
of the ground before engaging PTO and by engaging
PTO slowly at low engine rpm. Increase engine speed to
540 RPM only after tines are rotating.
IMPORTANT: Replace shear bolts with original
Land Pride equipment from your Land Pride Dealer.
See table below for correct shear bolt and nut part
numbers. Torque shear bolt nuts to 7-9 ft- lbs.
Shear Bolt and Lock Nut Part Numbers
IMPORTANT: Check position of lip on stop flange.
(UP or DOWN). Replace stop flange with lip UP if
one spring (#6) is included and DOWN if two
springs (#6) are included.

Section 4: Maintenance & Lubrication
Storage
Clean, inspect, service, and make necessary repairs to
the Rotary Tiller when parking it for long periods and
when parking it at the end of a working season. This will
help ensure that the tiller is ready for field use the next
time you hook-up to it.
!
DANGER
Always disconnect main driveline from tractor PTO and
secure tiller in the up position with solid supports before
servicing underside of tiller. PTO can be engaged if tractor is
started resulting in damage to tiller, bodily injury, or death.
1. Clean off any dirt and grease that may have
accumulated on the Rotary Tiller. Scrape off
compacted dirt and then wash surfaces thoroughly
with a garden hose.
2. Check the tines for wear and replace if necessary.
See Tine Replacement earlier in this section.
3. Inspect the tiller for loose, damaged or worn parts
and adjust or replace if needed.
4. Lubricate as noted in “Lubrication” on page 25.
5. Drain and refill gearbox and chaincase oil. Be sure to
replace all oil plugs.
• Drain oil in gearbox by removing the bottom drain
plug or right-hand cap.
• Drain oil in chaincase by removing the bottom plug
and tipping tiller backwards.
6. Replace all damaged or missing decals.
7. Store tiller on a level surface in a clean, dry place.
Inside storage will reduce maintenance and make for
a longer tiller life.
8. Follow all parking instructions on page 16 when
disconnecting tractor from tiller.
9. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust. Ask your dealer for Land Pride Aerosol
touch-up paint. They are also available in touch-up
bottles with brush, quarts, and gallon sizes by adding
TU, QT, or GL to the end of the Aerosol part number.
