that when lifted, the rotor bar remains parallel to the ground.
With the rotary tiller attached to the tractor, raise and support the tiller with
suitable blocks. Adjust the skids, located on the sides of the tiller. The adjust-
ment bolts for both right and left sides should be positioned in the same ad-

the back plate, with regulating chain, until the desired mulching effect is found.
Note: Never attempt to adjust the rotary tiller while the tractor is
Raise the tiller and remove the blocks. Lower the tiller to the ground.
With the tractor at idle RPM and the tiller lifted off of the ground, engage PTO
and slowly advance throttle to 540 PTO RPM. NOTE: Rotary tiller is designed

Select a low gear for the tractor and begin to move forward. Tractor ground
speed is to be controlled by gear selection only and not engine speed. As the
tractor moves forward, slowly lower the tiller down. Allow the tiller tines to
gradually engage the ground.
