UsingYourTiller Clevis Pin Hairpin Your tiller is a precision built machine designed for seed bed preparation , cultivating , furrowing and mulching .

The forward speed will increase . Turn yoke around ( farthest point between WheelPosition wheels and tines ) for deep tilling . Forward speed will The tiller is shipped with the wheels adjusted such that decrease . See Figure 11 . the unit sits level . While tilling , as the tines enter the ground and the front of the tiller lowers , the wheels must be raised to level the unit , which is essential for proper engine operation . This adjustment is made by removing the clevis pin and hairpin clip from wheel yoke , raising the wheels to the desired height , and replacing the clevis pin and hairpin clip . See Figure 9 . Depth Stake Position Wheel Yoke Wheel Yoke For Shallow Tilling For Deep Tilling Figure 11 DepthStakeAdjustment The depth stake acts as a brake for the tiller and controls the depth and speed at which the machine wilt operate . Remove the clevis pin and hairpin clip to raise & Clevis Pins or lower depth stake . See Figure 9 . Figure 9

HandlePressure Transport Further control of tilling depth and travel speed can be Position obtained by variation of pressure on the handles . A downward pressure on the handles will reduce _ epth Stake / / ' / the working depth and increase the forward speed . An upward pressure on the handles will increase the working depth and reduce the forward speed . The type of soil and working conditions will determine the actual setting of the depth stake and the handle Shallow Tilling pressure required . ThrottleControl The throttle control lever adjusts the engine speed and stops the engine . With the throttle control lever pushed completely forward , the carburetor is in START Wheel Settin position . Pullingthe throttle control back slightly adjusts Deep Tilling Deep Tilling the engine speed to FAST . Pulling the throttle back further reduces the engine speed to SLOW .

See Figure 12 . are about two inches above the ground while the tiller is resting on the tines and depth stake wilt allow the machine to work at cultivating depth . The throttle should be set to control forward movement to a slow walking speed . With the outer tines installed , the working width of the machine is 22 or 24 inches . For cultivation , this may be reduced to 13 inches by removing the outer tines . Refer to the Adjustment Section . When laying out plant rows , be sure to allow enough width to permit cultivation between the rows . In growing corn or similar crops , check - row planting will permit cross cultivation and practically eliminate hand hoeing . See Figure 14 . The tiller has many uses other than tilling and Figure 13 cultivating a garden . One of these is the preparation of lawn area for seeding . The tiller will prepare a deep When tilling , leave approximately 8 inches of untilled seed bed which will be free of hard untilled spots , soil between the first and second tilling paths , then allowing a better stand of grass to grow . The tiller is make the third path between the first and second . In very useful for loosening hard soil for excavation with a some soils , the desired depth is obtained the first time shovel .

In other soils , the desired depth is tiller may be used for mixing compost in the pile , or for obtained by going over the garden two or three times . In mixing it with the soil in your garden . This should be the latter case , the depth stake should be lowered done after the soil has been broken to the full working before each succeeding pass over the garden . Passes depth . The compost should be worked in to a depth of should be made across the length and width of the six to seven inches . This may be done by working the garden alternately .
