36" Tiller Help

Recommended Posts

rs07

Just attached my new old stock 36" tiller to my Deutz 914H. When I raise the tiller, the idler pulley on the tiller rubs against the housing making acensored1.gifof a noise. Anyone see this before and if so, was wondering if something's out of place? Thanks!!

Happens to be all the time. If you keep the tiller rotating and go to max lift height, the idler pulley rubs on the tiller tin.

Also happens with my revitalizer and Homelite T-12.

On my 7100 series Simplicities, I figured it could be a rear lift cable issue. But the T-12 uses a solid rod for the rear lift. So I guess you're not supposed to do a full lift with the attachment rotating.

I have 2 tillers each with its own belt/pulleys that I use on 3 different tractors (917, 7119,710) and do not have this issue.

Maybe your belt is just a little short, so your idler pulley is not tuck up away from the tiller housing?

I noticed that the tiller is tilted back away from the tractor a little. I think this may be the cause. Now I have to figure out why it's doing this. The belt I have is an OEM belt Part # 2105340SM.

Thanks all for your help! Found out the problem was actually the clevis end on the lift cable was turned out too far. Turned it in several turns and problem fixed. I'm ready to till my garden this weekend. Thanks again!
