Transporting the Tiller â¢ To transport the tiller to or from the garden , pivot the depth stake forward and out of the way . With the throttle control in SLOW position , the unit will walk freely on the lawn . If the operator does not allow the tiller to move freely , the unit will start to till the surface . Cultivating â¢ For cultivating , a two to three inch depth is desirable . â¢ Set the wheels and depth stake so that the wheels are about two inches above the ground while the tiller is resting on the tines and depth stake . â¢ Set the throttle to control forward movement to a slow walking speed . Shallow Deep â¢ With the outer tine installed , the working width of Tilling Tilling the machine is 24 or 26 inches . For cultivation , this may be reduced to 13 inches by removing the outer Figure 7 tines . Refer to page 9 for instructions . â¢ When laying out plant rows , be sure to allow Handle Pressure enough width to permit cultivation between the Further control of tilling depth and travel speed can be rows . See Figure 9 . obtained by variation of pressure on the handles . â¢ A downward pressure on the handles will reduce the working depth and increase the forward speed . â¢ 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 pressure required . Removing End Caps â¢ The end caps prevent tilled soil from overflowing onto unwanted areas . To remove end caps from the outer axle , remove the hairpin clip and the clevis pin , as shown below , and slide end cap off the axle . See Figure 8 . Figure 9 Other Uses 1 . Your tiller has many uses other than tilling and cultivating a garden . One of these is the preparation of lawn area for seeding . The tiller will prepare an evenly deep seed bed , hence allowing better lawn growth . 2 . Your tiller may be used for loosening hard soil for excavation with a shovel . In this case , no tedious hand work will be necessary . 3 . Your tiller may be used for mixing compost in the pile , or for mixing it with the soil in your garden . This should be done after the soil has been broken to the full working depth . The compost should be Clevis Hairpin worked to a depth of six to seven inches . This may Pin End Clip be done by working the length of the garden , and Cap then by making separate passes across its width . Figure 8 8
SECTION 5 : MAKING ADJUSTMENTS WARNING : Do not at any time make any adjustments without first stopping engine and disconnecting spark plug wire . Transport Position Wheel Position Depth The tiller is shipped with the wheels adjusted such that Stake 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 . â¢ For proper wheel positioning , remove the clevis pin and the hairpin clip from the wheel yoke , raise Shallow Tilling wheels as desired , and secure with the hardware . Fast Forward See Figure 10 . Depth Stake Raised Wheel Setting Deep Tilling For Deep Tilling Slow Forward Figure 11 Tine Width Wheel Yoke The tilling width of the unit is 24 inches , but can be increased to 26 inches . â¢ To increase the tilling width , remove the clevis pins Hairpin Clips and hairpin clips , slide the outer tine out one inch , and Clevis Pins and secure in this position with the clevis pins and hairpin clips . Figure 10 â¢ For cultivation , reduce the tine width to 13 inches by removing the outer tines completely . See Figure 12 . Clutch Control To adjust clutch controls , refer to page 6 of this manual . Depth Stake The depth stake acts as a brake for the tiller and controls the depth and speed at which the machine will 24 operate . â¢ Remove clevis pin and hairpin clip to raise or lower depth stake . Refer to Figure 10 . a . When the depth stake is lower , forward speed of the machine is reduced , and the working depth increased . See Figure 11 . b . When the depth stake is raised , the forward 26 â speed is increased and the working depth of the machine is reduced . See Figure 11 . â¢ The working depth of the machine may be predetermined by setting the depth stake and wheels . The wheels are about four inches from the ground when the tines and depth stake are resting on the ground . This setting will permit a working 13 â depth of about four inches . Figure 12 9
