Frequently Asked Questions About This Product

Why does my Tiller make a clacking noise when I raise it out of the ground?
Answer

This is most likely caused by putting the driveline in too much of an angle causing the u-joints to rub against one another. Raise the tiller while in operation just enough to clear the ground.

What type of oil is in the chain case and in the gearbox?
Answer

The chain case has 00 flowable grease (Corn head grease) and the gearbox has 80-90 wt. gear lube.

How fast can I run the tiller?
Answer

It depends on the conditions, but 2-3 mph is about the right speed. You may need to slow down if you start to notice material building in front of the machine.

How do I slip the clutch?
Answer

A step by step procedure is located in the Operator’s Manual (manual can be found on Related Products Page below). It is imperative that this be done prior to operation and any time the unit has set idle.

Can I run the unit in reverse?
Answer
