Tiller Stopped Turning???

Recommended Posts

Was tilling the garden this spring and the tiller on the Landlord stopped spining.At the time I did'nt have time to mess with it so I just put it away and got the Broadmoor out to finish up the garden... I checked it out a little more as I thought it might be a belt slipping or something...Now I am puzzled a little..The tines spin fine until I lower it down to the dirt then the tines stop but the PTO pulleys are moving fine..I never heard any funny noises or anything when it stopped... I thought maybe someone might have a idea before I start taking it apart...

Sounds like you broke the key on part #7 in the diagram... http://www.simpletractors.com/images/parts/housing_1st.jpg

Check your pulley on the tiller the shaft may be turning inside it. set screw backed out on the pulley ?, key loose? it happened to me once thought I broke something inside:I John

Definitely not a chain inside, which would be your worst case scenario. Sounds like a key or set screw or maybe even a stripped pulley (doubtfully).

Thanks for the tips,I will check out the pulley's and see if that might be the problem... Bunky,there was a bolt that came part way out.I can't remember what one it was right off hand but I think it had a grease fitting on the other end of it...
