Land Pride's RTA1558, RTA1566 & RTA1574 forward rotation Rotary Tillers are great for seedbed or garden plot soil preparation. RTA15 Tillers have uses in landscaping, nurseries, gardens, and light commercial applications. Sideshift capabilities with through-gearbox shaft keeps the driveline running straight and the formed and reinfoced rear deflector leaves a nice smooth finish. Operators can control tilling depth with various skid shoe settings to achieve the results desired.
Why does my Tiller make a clacking noise when I raise it out of the ground?
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?
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?
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?
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.
