Home lite 989 tiller

Recommended Posts

dwag
Got a Wards Squire 10 which I use with a Home Lite mdl 989 rear mounted tiller. (works great) Only see grease zerks on tiller. Was wondering what is in tiller drive/gear box? Belt drive? chain drive? Am I missing any thing on maintenance? Wher can I get a manual? Thanks, John

Scored one a few years ago that still had all the paint on the tines. Took it apart just to check the grease, well, after 40 or so years of sitting it was mighty hard and stuck to the lowest point, think it's a good idea to pull them down and change it.

Thank You for your reply. Didn't see a manual for my tiller in the listings on link. Am I not reading it right? John

Thank You for your reply. Rather than take tiller apart, I'm tempted to drill a hole in gear hsg, tap and plug after adding some gear lube? John
