How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
Horse I tillers (serial numbers up to #314150) used two matched drive belts and a fiber reverse disc. These are referred to as “2-Speed” tillers. Horse II (serial number 314151 and higher) tillers used one drive belt and a rubber ringed reverse disc.
The product`s model number is essential to finding correct genuine factory replacement part numbers for your Troy-Bilt® outdoor power equipment. The Model number is eleven characters long and is printed on the left side of the Product Identification Label. Characters can include numbers, letters or hyphens.
The Pony lawn tractor is powered by a 15.5 HP Power Built Series (single-cylinder) OHV Briggs and Stratton engine that delivers reliable starting performance for all your mowing needs.
Powered by a 250cc, 11.5 OHV Briggs & Stratton PowerBuilt™ engine, the Pony has the strength to break up hard-packed soil quickly and easily.
What year was my equipment built? The 5th character of our 11 character product serial numbers will indicate the last number of the year that it was manufactured. Since 5th character in the example is a 4, the year of manufacture would be a year ending in 4.
Tighten the belt by pushing the wheels/tines/PTO drive lever downward, or loosen the belt by pushing the wheels/tines/PTO drive lever upward. You will have to estimate how far to move it. Overtime, the belt will stretch, so the setting will be different each time you adjust the belt.
The top belt is the power clutch belt, also known as the PTO (power takeoff) belt. This is the easier one to replace because it`s on top and has a spring-loaded hand lever to remove the belt from the lawn mower for deck removal. The lower belt on the deck is called the arbor belt.
A: Your mower has two belts. Both play a role in making the blades turn. The “Deck Belt” goes around the pulleys right above the blades on the deck and then to a double pulley. The “Drive Belt” on your mower goes from the transmission, around an Idler pulley then over to the double pulley I mentioned before.

I am currently looking at buying a troybilt horse with serial # 340455. Can someone let me know what year this is?
That tiller was made sometime between 7/1/78 and 1/1/79. This is the Horse II model and is a four speed one belt tiller. The Horse I was a two speed two belt tiller. These are very good tillers if they have been reasonably taken care of.
I just bought a used Pony tiller. It runs good, but after tilling for a couple no hours the forward and tines just stopped. Had not hit anything. It goes in reverse and the tines work in reverse, but I cannot get it to do anything forward???
Check under the metal or plastic cover just behind the engine. This covers the forward and reverse belts. Your belt either broke, jumped off fthe pulley, or needs a tension adjustment.

Hi there, ive been doing a bit of head scratching over this one as i needed to check my facts. i think the belt has a automatic spring loaded adjuster so it sounds as if you need a new belt for it.
My 5 horsepower pony tiller just shuts off with no warning after about 20-30 minutes of tilling and will not restart again until it cools down to the touch
I have changed the spark plug, drained and refilled the gas tank twice and can not see anything physically wrong.
I also was having issues with an old 5 horse Troy Built tiller that would fire when gas was in the tank then stop running. If it’s a Briggs and Stratton engine like the one I have it’s probably you can remove the muffler to gain access to the side of the carb. Remove the four screws and the cover off the fuel pump diphram and check to make sure that the rubber isn’t cracked or degraded. I replaced the one I had and it now runs like a champ.
