To slow down the tilter , allow tines to uproot weeds and leave the ground in press down on handles rough condition , promoting no further growth of weeds and grass ( See Fig . 10 ) . . If you are straining or tiller is shaking , the wheels and depth stake are not set properly in the soil being tilled . The proper setting of the wheels and depth stake is through trial and error and depends upon the soil condition . ( The harder or wetter the ground , the slower the engine and tine speed A needed . , Under these poor conditions , at fast speed the tiller . = wilt run and jump over the ground ) . A properly adjusted tiller will dig with little effort from the operator . , • 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 " . A tiller o _ will also clear the soil of unwanted vegetation , . The decomposition of this vegetable matter enriches the soilo Depending on the climate ( rainfall and wind ) , it may be advisable to till the soil at the end of the growing season to further condition the soit , FIG . 10 • Soil conditions are important for proper tilling , Tines wilt not readily penetrate dry , hard soil which may contrib - ute to excessive bounce and difficult handling of your tiller , . Hard soil should be moistened before tilling ; however , extremely wet soil will " ball - up " or clump during tilling . Wait until the soil is less wet in order toe achieve the best results . When tilling in the fall , remov vines and long grass to prevent them from wrapping around the tine shaft and sfowing your tilling operation _ 11
