REMOVAL OF THE MINI TILLER TINES
Prior to installing the de-thatching
rakes the mini tiller tines must be removed. Please
refer to the operator's manual of the unit for proper removal of the cultivating tines, as
each mini tiller's tine removal instruction
may be different. Place the extra clip pins or
clevis pin and clip in a safe location for future use.
To convert a mini tiller to a lawn de-thatcher
proceed as follows:
Push the On/Off switch to Off (O) position to stop engine and disconnect
the spark plug to
avoid accidental starting.
Clean any dirt or debris from mini tiller's gear box and shield area.
Lay the mini tiller back in a horizontal position on a flat level surface with the upper handle
touching the ground.
Remove the click pins or clevis pin and clip from the tine shafts and slide the tines off the
shaft. (Refer to units operator's manual Removing the Tines).
INSTALLING THE DE-THATCHING
Place the carriage bolt through the J-clamp center hole and push the assembled J-clamp
through the de-thatching
shield slot so that the end of the square bolt is protruding up from
the top of the de-thatching
shield. Screw the wing nut onto the carriage bolt making sure to
leave the J-clamp assembly loose and free to move along the slot. (Fig. 1 & 2)
Repeat step 1 for the other side.
From the front of the unit, slide the de-thatching
shield over the mini tiller shield so that the
bent part of the shield is facing forward and to the front of the mini tiller.
Depending on which type of mini tiller shield the unit has will determine which part of
the J-clamp will be used. (Fig. 1)
With the de-thatching
shield held tightly against the cultivating shield, turn the loose J-
clamps so that the J part of the clamp is under the mini tiller shield. (Fig. 3)
Tighten the wing nut until the de-thatching
shield is held securely against the mini tiller
shield so that it does not slide or move.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the opposite side.
INSTALLING THE DE-THATCHING

for proper installation from the operator's
Slide the de-thatching
rake, with the hub facing inward, onto the tine shaft. Make sure to
align the front hole on the shaft with the front hole on the de-thatching
rake. (Fig. 4)
If click pin does not assemble in the first hole, align the second hole of the de-thatcher
rake with the inside hole of the tine shaft and use the clevis pin and clip to secure the
rake to the mini tiller.
Secure with the click pin or cotter pin through the hole. (Fig. 5)
