Sunstar tiller tines

Recommended Posts

eric05gto
I purchased a second Sunstar that came with a 38" tiller (#1691735) The tines are worn like knife edges... it will only till 2" or so. I was surprised that they cost about $15 a piece. Does anyone have any ideas to find less expensive tines? The part # for the tines is 172511 and 172512. Thanks.

Welcome to the club. Try removing the skid shoes. They just hold them up from getting any depth or make multiple passes. They are to the outside of the tiller and where they contact the ground it doesn`t get tilled to the next pass.

I have often wondered about if these would fit. More than likely not. Ebay use to have a bunch simiular to these. http://www.ebay.com/itm/King-Kutter-Tiller-Tines-5-Left-and-5-Right-Hand-/180642806205?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a0f2679bd

Thanks for the quick replies! If I removed the shoes it might get me to a three inch depth, the tines are well worn... The spacing is 2" between the bolt holes. Each tine has a third hole one inch from the hole closest to the tiller shaft that is not used. The tines are also labeled 36L and 36R corresponding to their position, left and right side. Looks like the King Cutters have a smaller spacing. If a Powermax is the same, I'll look for those also. I may have to just bite the bullet, or maybe buy half now and half in the spring.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
